This week is all AM shifts. Up at
3:00 3:15 ok 3:35 and clocked in by 5 am. I'll be honest, yesterday I came home and just slept. Well... I tried to go to the bank and deposit a check (my first paycheck!) but I got all the way inside the bank with half the deposit slip filled out before I realized that I had the pay stub and no check. Apparently my brain was already in bed for the night.
Today worked a little better for my poor confused brain. It's weird to be at work for several hours before taking a break for breakfast at... 8 am! :)
I have yet to figure out a way to fix or take breakfast with me at 4 am without waking everyone in the house up. So far I have just taken a piece of fruit or a granola bar to tide me over until my real breakfast.
Yesterday they had scones in the cafeteria and I passed them up thinking I would get one today. STUPID! of course there were no scones today. I got an apple spice muffin (very good!) instead and some fruit instead.
My coworker/ partner in crime for the morning shift is Jon and he's a fellow scone lover. I promised him today that I would bring in scones for the office tomorrow morning. So... I spent this evening baking scones. (Pictures and reviews to be shared tomorrow). Look! I just solved my "breakfast-at-4" problem! :)
For my "lunch" break at 10:45 I decided it was way to early to eat lunch after an 8 am breakfast. I opted for a walk around campus to help my sleepiness.
When you're up and at work before the sun rises, it's such a surprise to see a gorgeous day waiting outdoors.
I walked for a while and then sat to enjoy the view. It would have been perfect if it wasn't nearly unbearably hot.
Since yesterday was such failure after work, I planned to spend my afternoon doing something. After work, I took myself out to eat on the way to the mall. :) see how productive I chose to be? I chose shopping.
There at the mall is a Chik-fil-A which I think I've only ever eaten at once. I decided to give it a try.
Grilled chicken sandwich with my choice of cheese and it automatically came without mayo. Those of you who know me will understand just how much this means to me. :)
Waffle fries on the side and some free water!
I was very pleased with the meal. It was really good considering it's fast food!
I finally got home and stayed in the car for a minute listening to the update on Isaac and it's expected time for landfall. We, on the other hand just had the humidity and a beautiful rainbow. :) One of the clearest ones I've seen in a few years.
I certainly hope that those facing the coming brunt of Isaac will fare well and stay safe.
