1 More Work Day = 5 Days Off!

Well the 8+ inches of snow we were supposed to get never happened.  The temperatures never got low enough thank goodness – if you would have translated the rain we got before it started to snow, I think we would have easily gotten a foot of snow.

I was glad, because I worked until 9:00 last night.  I was worried I’d have to drive home in blizzard conditions, but the roads were just wet, not icy.  This morning its cold – 20 degrees, but we maybe got a half inch of snow?

I had half a baked potato in the fridge, so I made a breakfast stuffed potato.  I scooped out the insides of the potato and cooked that with 1 egg, chopped deli ham, baby spinach and scrambled it at home.  Once at work, I microwaved the potato skin for a minute, stuffed in the scrambled egg mixture and then put a slice of Swiss cheese on top and stuck it under the broiler.  Super filling and delicious. Open-mouthed smile

No workout yesterday.  I had to run an errand for one of my bosses, and then I had a one hour webinar I had to attend for work.  I had leftover enchiladas from the other night – you can’t see it, but I have a cup of chopped baby spinach under my chicken enchilada and Mexican rice.

When I got home I had another Christmas gift from blog reader Carol – how did she know I like spicy shit??!!  Thanks Carol (and sorry for the shitty picture – it’s still dark outside this morning!  I can’t wait to try the wasabi ass kicking sauce!

My boss is notorious for saying “we are almost done” when working on a project.  The very first night I worked for her I worked until 4:00 a.m., and at 10:00 p.m. she told me we were almost done – at 2:00 a.m. I told Tony just to go to bed and not wait up anymore! 

But it’s hard to decide whether to order dinner in or not.  If we don’t order food, I think we just focus on and continue until we are done.  Once food is ordered, it’s almost saying we are in it for the duration and it could be hours before we are done.

But in the end, I ordered Chinese food.  It’s a place across the street and they literally deliver in less than 10 minutes.  I got kung pao beef – but holy shit, this was almost too spicy!  I ended up skipping the white rice, but when I take it for lunch today, I think I’ll need the rice to bring it down a notch.

And wouldn’t you know that 30 minutes after this was delivered, my part of the project was done and I got to come home.  Sadly, the Christmas tree was not lit when I pulled in the drive and I didn’t even notice it until an hour after I was home.  Tony thought he would go the whole night without it being on, but I turned it on an hour before I went to bed. Open-mouthed smile

So I have one more personal day to take that I can’t carry over to 2013, so I have the day after Christmas off – so a five day weekend! 

And tomorrow?  Tony and I will have been married 12 years on 12.22.12!  If you ask Tony, he says it feels like we’ve been married 30 years!  It’s only because we each married our best friend and we get each other so well that it feels like we’ve been together our whole lives. Open-mouthed smile

Happy Friday – make it a great day!!
