Hello wonderful people! I am still overwhelmed by the love and support that you all have been pouring out! Thank you so much for all of the comments and emails – it means the world to me.
So, I’ll come clean with you all, mornings are still really hard for me. I feel like a zombie with the stomach flu. I find I do better if I just eat little snacks until lunchtime, and then try for the full(ish) meal then. This morning was no different. I ate what looked like bird food at 5:30am…
Cracklin’ Oat Bran and some almonds. Then I drank a green monster around 7:00, an apple around 9:30, and 2 spoonfuls of peanut butter (from an emergency jar I keep in my desk) at 10:30. Then I came home for lunch at 11:30.
You all said you were excited to see my weird pregnancy cravings – well here it is.
Refried beans. I cannot get enough of them – it’s all I ever want to eat. I actually had them for “breakfast” on Monday – kind of ridiculous. For lunch today, it was a tortilla with refritos in it, and a cup on the side as well.
Then around 2:30, I had my veggie intake.
A can of green beans, and a little nub of zucchini bread (made by our lunch lady!) on the side.
After school…the adventure began. You see, we just finished reading the book Matilda in class, and I told my kiddos we could watch the movie after we finished the book (I rarely do this, but the movie is such a good one). Last year, I found the DVD at blockbuster – no problem. Well, when I went there today, they didn’t have it. So I went on a 2 hour scavenger hunt around town looking for the movie Matilda. At about 6pm, I was so hungry that I stopped at Sprouts for some sustenance.
A couple handfuls later, I was ready to hit the road again with renewed strength. After visiting another Blockbuster, Wal-Mart, the Public Library, and Target – I finally found it! Target had it for only $5…why oh why didn’t I go there first?! So at 7pm, I returned home, and now I’m too exhausted to make a proper dinner. Hopefully, the seeds/pretzels combo will hold me over until morning.
In the 3rd grade world…
Remember the afternoon at the drive-in last year? Well, we’re doing it again tomorrow. I will be sure to document the creativity, so stay tuned.
