Then I came home for a bagel.
Yep – at home! We stopped at Panera Bread last night and picked up a couple bagels to have for breakfast. There just wasn’t enough time for me to work out, get John, have bagels, take him home and me go to the office to work. We only have 1 car and no biking yet.
So how is that going, you ask? Yesterday was an interesting day. It was like doing my job that I do every day at home, only doing it in a different place. The people in the office are very nice, but I didn’t talk too much, since I had work to do. I am the only one in the office that does transcription. Everyone else does either administration work or IT work. I think they don’t quite know what to make of me LOL!
I was worried about bringing in all my food as I wasn’t sure what to expect for the office area, but it was quite cushy! There is a big fridge, microwave, and one of those Keureg brewer things with all kinds of coffee to choose from. I had brought my own milk in a jar with a french press and coffee, but turns out I only needed the milk!
It is kind of in the middle of nowhere outside of town. This is the view outside:
Complete with the snow that is never going away! Biking here would be a little tough.
Here is a view of my work station. I have a window! Plus 2 big screens to look at, which is quite different from using my little netbook.
A little messy as it took me some time to get organized.
I am having some ergonomic problems getting used to this desk and chair, and they are getting me a keyboard drawer so I am more comfortable. The office is very laid back. Almost too much so. I have to really do some thinking. I have one more question to ask tomorrow, and then I can make a decision.
Lunch time at work was part of my packed stash:
Plain greek yogurt with some honey, chopped strawberries, and flax seed. Yum!
This office likes to eat. Yesterday they did Taco Bell, today another restaurant as take out, not to mention that they brought in Dunkin Donut bagels this morning. Maybe they know it is bagel Wednesday?? I didn’t have any of this stuff. I don’t want to seem rude or anything, but I also don’t want to feel pressured to eat foods that I don’t normally eat.
I did, however, take full advantage of the Keurig coffee brewer! Yay! Lots of choices of coffee to have. I bring my own milk because they just have the CoffeeMate creamers (hello trans fats). Not to mention the creamers are sweet, which I don’t care for.
I had a snack of some coconut bread.
This bread is more like a cornbread biscuit and keeps me full because it has fat in it. I’ll post the recipe tomorrow.
I was glad to get home. I am the last one to leave the office. That last half hour or so is so silent. It makes me have a lot of feelings of separation anxiety from John. That is also something I am struggling with.
I came home and made a quick dinner. Eating later is easier when I have some precooked items.
I had chicken with laughing cow and the last squidges of hot sauce ( 😯 ). Maybe there is one more serving in the bottle.
John got up to shenanigans while I was gone today. He made up some of the cutest little chocolate chip cookies with some peanut flour in them.
That’s a snack for tonight. I need to decompress, practice guitar, and I think I will hop on the trainer to do the decompression!
