I have suffered some really serious first world pain this week. Let's complain about it.
1. I had to go back to working FULL TIME yesterday. Unacceptable.
2. The floors at my school were being waxed, so we met at a park for team building activities. We were told it would be catered. I'm a psycho about bringing my own lunch anyway to things like that, because I've suffered before. But, I've had some good vegetarian meals at catered things recently, so I thought maybe the tide was turning. Plus, I was assured on Friday that there would be a meal for me. Plus, I HATE making lunches, and after my triathlon on Sunday, I wanted to put that horrible task off for one more day.
I never got super hungry after my triathlon on Sunday (if you follow me on Twitter, you may recall I ate a bowl of cereal at 3:45 and that was dinner), so naturally, the bottomless pit hunger hit me on Monday, and I was ready to gnaw my arm off about an hour after breakfast. Because I was also too lazy to pack snacks, I grabbed random stuff before I left, so I had a bag of a few pieces of raw red pepper around 10am. In the lunch line, I was starving, and couldn't wait to grab the specially labeled "vegetarian" wrap.
It was freakin lettuce. In a wrap. Like literally, a handful of bagged lettuce, on a wrap. No cheese, condiment of any kind, nothing. To add to my first world pain, "lockerz" keeps putting an ad over the picture when I try to screengrab it from Twitter, and I already deleted it from my phone, so I can't even show you. Also, we were in the middle of nowhere, I hadn't even driven, and the only other snack I had was a nectarine. Luckily, my friend got a second sandwich and was nice enough to give me his cheese, and they had a few packets of mustard out.
The afternoon of team building activities was a blur of standing in the sun trying to untie knots by putting your entire body through them and lining up planks to get across a field, but my main goal was not passing out from hunger.
3. After I went home and devoured some real food, I got back into my habit of getting snacks and lunches ready for the week, and couldn't wait to go to yoga. It was canceled for two weeks while they cleaned the rooms they have classes in at the YMCA (I can clean a room in under an hour, but apparently it takes them two weeks, whatev). After running 18 miles and completing my first triathlon this weekend, I was ready for some serious stretching. When I got to the Y, I was informed there was no yoga. Apparently this was only the second week of the cleaning. NOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
I considered going for a walk, but I'd spent enough time in the sun, so I decided to do some On Demand yoga. Apparently On Demand "Yoga" is code for "sneaky ab workouts". Not that my abs couldn't use a workout, but I really just wanted to stretch my legs. I stuck with one 15 minute workout that was pretty much abs and thigh toning, since it can't hurt, then managed to find a 20 minute routine that was actually yoga and stretched my legs.
Do you see how I suffer? Thank god my #firstworldpain was eliminated when I made myself an amazing dinner and the How I Met Your Mother with the love of my life, Katy Perry, was on.
Wouldn't we all rather look at that, than ugly nasty bagged lettuce on a wrap anyway? Plus, I love NPH. Let's just look at Katy a little more.
Speaking of the love of my life, I'll probably never meet Katy, so I'll celebrate today being Eric's birthday.
We are not celebrating until this weekend, I got some great suggestions on twitter to cook him dinner to make today a little special. But, I forgot it's his trivia night. So he will get (one of) his favorite dinner (s) - wings. Cooked by people who know how, at a restaurant. In terms of trivia, the best gift I could give anyone is to NOT be on their team. Actually, it would be to join another team, but I'll settle for just staying home and going to sleep. Wife of the year, right here.
