I have literally been working non-stop since I woke up at 5:30 this morning.

My body hurts from hunching over all day and my back hurts from sitting so long and my brain is just dead.

I worked some until daylight, which is the earliest I’ll walk the dogs since we have a lot of coyotes that roam around freaking me out. Shortly after their walks, I took a shower and got dressed and got to work. I think it was 7:30. Now that I think about it, I should have had better boundaries and should have at least had breakfast first.

Breakfast (yogurt, blueberries, almond butter):


I worked until I stopped to grab some lunch:


Then I worked until about 4 when I took a short break to take the dogs on another quick walk.

Jon’s child #3 made meatloaf (full of vegetables and topped with bacon), baked potatoes and steamed broccoli for dinner:


I seriously can’t keep this level of work up, but I have a 45 minute presentation to give in the morning and a huge paper due on Monday and another huge paper looming and 2 final exams … all in the next couple of weeks.

So. It’s going to suck for a while. I’ll survive. Good news is I’m too busy to stress eat? Bad news is I really need to exercise, but can’t force myself to make time.

I did squeeze a baby at dinner, which is always fun.

Today is our 8th wedding anniversary. Jon’s out of the country, so there’s no celebrating going on – but we’ll get around to it eventually. Timehop was fun today, though:




Can’t forget what life was like 8 years ago:
