Is this what it feels like to work regular hours? Its 9pm, and I would usually just be arriving home, exhausted and depressed, having left my house at 5:15am. Today I started something new–splitting one 12 hour shift into two 6 hour shifts. So I got up this morning at 6am WITHOUT an alarm clock, enjoyed a nice cup of coffee and breakfast, and a little quiet time, and left for work before 7:30. I was in the parking lot and on my way home by 3:20. HEAVEN!! I came straight home, and got in a really long walk/run with Noah (he’s getting faster!) and still had energy for a little house work. I fixed a real dinner, watched an episode of Monk, and checked out a few blogs. Now I’m tired, but NORMAL tired. Not feeling like the world is going to end tomorrow tired. Not shaking my legs to stay awake because they are insisting on going to sleep (does anyone else experience this? It is the weirdest feeling–like your body is going to go to sleep no matter what your mind tries to tell it to do.)
Oh, and to get back to the normal topic of this blog–food–here is another little bit of heaven. I try to make most of my ‘desserts’ healthy mini-meals. Have I told you guys about this combo? Just take about 1/2 cup of your favorite yogurt and 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries and stir them together until the yogurt is a little frosty and the blueberries are a little softened. I add in about 50 calories worth of walnuts–HEAVEN in a bowl!
