She was tempted to grab a large coffee and donut and head in, but motivated by blogville diet bloggers Murphy and Stanley's Mom and Oreo's Mom at
she decided to pack a healthy breakfast and lunch for the day, as she'd gained a few pounds in the last weeks of dealing with her dad being ill and traveling far, away.
In her bento box and lunch bag went some yogurt and almonds, Dave's Killer Powerseed bread with hummus and cucumbers, carrot sticks and some grapes. Then she got to work.
One of the "probies" that was on her team before a organization restructuring, finished his first year up. It's a big thing in squirrelville. Most guys bring in donuts.
With some help from his wonderful wife, this probie brought in two chocolate foundations (white and dark) with big bowls of cut up strawberries, bananas, rice crispy treats, angel food cake, pretzels and marshmallows (did I mention angel food cake and marshmallows?). Apparently you can buy your own little chocolate fountains at Meier for about $21.
Let's just, tired and stressed Mom did her best to make him know how thoughtful that was, even if she doesn't work with this group any longer. The healthy sandwich was barely touched and she said she just somehow kept wandering back to the lunch room to inventory the food.
Warning - HBO word in the video. I'm not going to say that was not the best idea in the world. . . but here's Mom on her trip home from work (don't step on any more cars Mom!)
Tomorrow - back on the healthy eating plan.
