Ugh! Okay, maybe I’m PMSing here, but I am so SICK of packing food everyday to take with me!! I dream to create a life that allows me to go home for lunch and dinner so that the necessity of carrying enough calories daily doesn’t exist! Don’t get me wrong, I love that I DO pack my lunch/dinner/snacks so that I’m not a slave to the fast food scene…my checkbook thanks me for this as well…but I’m just so tired of worrying about what I have, if it’s enough and how to keep it cold.
Sheesh…I suppose that I should be really thankful that I have access to a dishwasher to take care of the Tupperware…rather than having to wash it all by hand. Thank you dear universe for small gifts and extraordinary favors.
I know that the heart of all of this can be summed up in one word: summer. Summer is a time to live by the seat of your pants, to find random adventures off the beaten path, and to get up and go without having to co-ordinate a week’s worth of “stuff.” Basically I’m just bitter and don’t want to cook and prepare several days worth of food in advance just so I can have a lunch bag packed every morning. I want to do that in the fall, when the evenings are cool and standing over the stove isn’t so bad. When the days aren’t so light and the coziness of the kitchen is inviting. Sigh…maybe I just really need something to gripe about and this was it for today!!
Here’s hoping that y’all are packing your lunches with AB friendly foods, that you’re drinking enough water and going slowly enough to enjoy the last precious half of this wonderful summer. Take care, be well and freeze your grapes…they’re so yummy and cool that way!
