So, I took everyone's words of encouragement today and "sucked it up" and did it. Thats right, I braved the battle field known by many as MIDDLE SCHOOL! I was soooo nervous, not to mention exhausted (I had to be there at 700!). But it turned out to be ok. Everything was all laid out for me, and most of the children were actually pretty helpful. There were a couple of times I saw whispering and secretly feared they were planning some evil plot against me. But I made it home safe and sound. Glad thats over with, and now im $60 richer! woo hoo!
I had such high hopes for last nights dinner, but I was let down. I stocked up on a TON of veggie burgers because they were on sale, so I decided to make one for dinner on the george foreman grill. First off, there are no instructions for grilling these things, only baking them in the oven. So I had NO idea how long to leave it on the grill. I just sort of sight-checked it every few minutes and when it looked done I took it off. Unfortunately, I think I cooked it a little too long because it was really tough! Also, I warmed the bun in the microwave, but I think I did that for too long too because the bun shrunk to about half its original size and got really tough as well. It was bearable, but not as delicious as I had initially hoped.
I dressed it up with all the fixin's. Tomato slices, onion, spinach, mustard, and ketchup. Also, of course, you cant have a burger without a pickle on the side. And some "apple fries" :)
For breakfast this morning I fixed some oats with the usual mix-ins.
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup water
- splash of vanilla soy milk
- 1/2 banana
- handful of blueberries
- LOADS of cinnamon
I ate this up quickly and headed on to school. I knew that I wouldnt get to eat lunch until I got home around 3, so I brought me some Honey Twist Pretzels to snack on throughout the day. When I got home I fixed up a lunch worthy of a middle schooler. PB and J with an apple on the side. Am I a teacher or what?!
Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly with:
- 2 Slices Whole Wheat Bread
- 2 tbsp. Might Maple Peanut Butter
- Other Half of the Banana from Breakfast
- Blackberry Preserves
- A few Raisins
- Small Apple
- Remainder of Honey Twist Pretzels
Now, Im off to tan quickly before heading to my second job at the mizzalll (thats the mall he he). There is this teeth whitening place that just opened up in the mall and they put one tanning bed in it in the very back and do not charge mall employees to lay! I know its horrible for you, but Im pasty and its free, and soon enough I will be out in the real sun, so its not for long.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful day! And remember friends, TOMORROW IS FRIDAY!! :) What are your plans for the weekend?!
Lots of Love <3 Ems.
