I can’t even begin to express what a long and exhausting day it was. Work has just been nonstop this week since we’re busy with new projects while being shorthanded, today was another multitasking nightmare. Plus I’m on call this week and have been getting slammed frequently after hours, hello lack-of-sleep. Mix that with frequent visits to my grandma at a new care facility, cramming in regular workouts, and house stuff to catch up on and I’m just burned out and frustrated that I couldn’t even make a dent in a list of tasks I wanted to do this week. While I’m thankful tomorrow is Friday, my weekend is getting booked fast with a desperate need to grocery shop, long run, grandma visits, being on call for work, co-worker trying to talk me into helping him move – ga!
Um, yeah, so my blogging schedule will be taking a hit over the next month or so to about 3-4 times a week. I’m not happy about it at all, but I need to focus more on work and keeping my sanity until things settle down. And refocus on my love of playing in the kitchen and creating raw recipes.
I met my mom to visit my grandma after work today and it was great seeing her look much better and feeling more chatty. But a little tough to me to be energetic and chatty after the kind of day I had. Since it was late and I was in no mood to cook when we left, we stopped at Panera Bread for dinner. There aren’t too many vegan options at Panera that are hearty and satisfying, but one is my favorite comfort food – black bean soup in a bread bowl.
Yeah, it’s a carb nightmare and something I rarely get. And I didn’t feel too bad considering the huge veggie loaded salad I had at Whole Foods for lunch. The soup is good for a basic black bean soup, not too salty or spicy. But the soup saturated bread is a wonderful treat.
Now I need to take my fried self to bed!
