Friday Free-For-All – 02/03/17

Photo Jul 14, 10 05 37 AM

My coworker Stacey brought a giant box of pastries into my office first thing this morning. Words cannot describe what a delightful start that was to my Friday. I made an extra cup of coffee and sipped and munched and YES.

I didn’t do my meal prep stuff this past weekend and I’ve been struggling all week because of it. For a while, I was on a roll with prepping meals for the week on Sunday mornings, but I’ve definitely fallen off the wagon. I need to get back on, quick. Buying lunches every day (plus dinners on rehearsal days) is causing me to spend way too much money.

I think I’ve decided to audition for only one show this summer, and will only accept a lead role. Like I’ve said before, stating that I’ll only take a lead role makes me feel like a total schmuck, but I just can’t commit to another three months of rehearsals unless it’s a lead role. I don’t anticipate getting this particular role because I’m not right for it physically, but I need to practice auditioning more so that it’s less stressful for me, and going into an audition where it’s not super high stakes emotionally will be good for me. I’m mostly looking at it as a practice audition at this point.

Do you bring your lunch to work, or do you buy lunch?

    (I think the last two weeks have been a ‘blog hole’ for me, so busy I have missed everything!)

    I bring my lunch to work every day for three reasons: it allows me to control what goes into my body, it helps control what comes out of our bank account, and it stops me from falling into restrictive, disordered eating patterns.

    Anyway …

    Tired and grumpy makes comfort food very welcome – I made a nice comfort dinner this week and Lisa had a crappy day and really needed it. So I am sure those pastries were very much welcome!

    Food prep isn’t something we do, but we do basically make sure we’re set for the week food wise and after all these years that is good enough. For Sunday however … who knows what crap we’ll load up on for the Patriots game 🙂

    Haven’t read everything but get that there have been stresses and struggles for you – hope everyone is doing better and that YOU are doing better as well!

      Thanks, Mike. Things are equalizing, but basically I’m living for our Bahamas vacation in three weeks! I need a good long break and some sunshine.
