I’m going to have to concur with Susan on this one. TUESDAYS SUCK. Pretty sure it is the worst day of the week. And I left my BlackBerry at home this morning so that certainly isn’t helping matters.

I woke up extremely cranky this morning, cursing that it was only Tuesday, and I took it out on my poor H2B. Luckily, he’s a giant ball of love and forgiveness. 😉


My little cranky self through together the quickest little breakfast I could manage – cheesy scrambled eggs and a piece of good old fashioned plain buttered toast.


I topped my eggs with my fav combo: sour cream, cilantro, Chalula.


Sadly, and not helping my cranky-factor, the boy totally spaced setting up the coffee pot last night so we settled for tea.


I adore Mighty Leaf tea. It is totally worth the extra money. I’m turning into a tea snob, and I don’t even drink that much tea!

Oh, except, full disclosure: last night, while watching Paranormal Activity, I might have had 4 Girl Scout cookies with my berry herbal tea!


They were much better after being dunked in tea, as I predicted!


Tuesdays are sort of one of my traditionally slower days in the office. I have weekly things on my agenda for Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays but Tuesdays and Wednesdays are slightly more up in the air as far as level of work flow.

I had a mid morning snack of a half a serving of DELICIOUS Jalapeno Smokehouse almonds.

The slower pace today lead to a little bit earlier than usual lunch. And the lack of leftovers in the fridge lead to a rather unexciting lunch.


A can of soup is appearing to be my go-to lunch when our fridge is lending towards the more-bare side.


Naturally, I added lots of pepper to the soup. 😉

To go with my soup, I packed some sliced ‘shrooms and hummus.


Side note here: I prefer to buy large containers of Costco hummus and divy it up into personal sizes to save on plastic and be a tree-hugger BUT it is actually cheaper to get it like this at our Costco and I’m a sucker for savings money and time together.

Today’s lunch took  nearly an hour to get eaten! I kept getting interrupted by work things which I don’t mind at all. I think I actually appreciated how long lunch lasted me to get through! I am guilty of eating too fast, all the time.

Dessert was another truffle, eaten in the 3-bite method.

I worked at Nordie’s tonight.

On the way in, I had a Trio bar.


For dinner, I packed last night’s leftovers: a smaller portion of the noodles + venison in peppered mushroom gravy and a larger portion of the agave + butter glazed carrots with thyme.


While I was on my break, I went to Papyrus and the Hallmark store on the hunt for some cheap Thank You cards to go with our wedding “theme”. I found a couple of things I liked but neither store had enough of anything in stock. I think this might be a future online project.

By the time I got home from work at nearly 10pm, I was starving again! Instead of attacking Girl Scout cookies, I opted for some string cheese instead.

Tomorrow, I have a super exciting evening planned! Another TDP meet-up! W00t! I am committing a huge faux pas and trying two new recipes out on her! Super excited! Wheeee!

  1. Tuesdays = worst day of the week. Mondays at least have a nice “newness” about them. Thursdays suck too as I’m always exhausted, but at least Friday is right around the corner. I clearly put too much thought into this.

    Cheese is also one of my favourite bedtime snacks. Cookies are for the morning silly 😛

    Happy Waffle Wednesday! Hope you celebrated because I didn’t 😦

  2. Which TDPer? Which TDPer???
