Mornin’ friends, and happy Wednesday to you all! How’s the week treating ya so far?
I’m gonna be honest…the tank is slowly running down to empty this week. Lucas is going through a bit of a growth spurt this week (at least that’s all I’m hoping it is) and his extra night time feedings are making for one sleepy mama.
Yesterday started bright and early at about 5:15am with Lucas’s second wakeup call for the night/morning. At that point, since my alarm was set for 5:45am anyways, there really was no point in going back to sleep. So I took my time showering and got things going for the morning. I was pretty hungry (which is the norm for the mornings) so I snacked on an iced oatmeal cookie Clif Z Bar to tide me over before breakfast.
Totally recycled photo, FYI.
Once I got to work, I ate my prepared pumpkin oatmeal along with a large pumpkin coffee from DD’s that I picked up after dropping Lucas off.
I typically try to stay away from buying coffee until Fridays as my treat, but I convinced myself that sleep deprivation is a good enough excuse to indulge an extra day. And then I even went with the large…although it’s not like the extra caffeine helps wake me up or anything. I just enjoyed sipping on it a little longer.
Shortly after arriving at work, a co-worker of mine informed me that she had made and brought in coffee cake that morning and it was still warm. Sign. Me. UP.
I had about half of my piece and it was goooood.
A little while later, I snacked on a banana and made a cup of Mother’s Milk tea (they say it helps with milk production…whether or not it really does, I have no idea? I’m not having problems with my supply, but I figure it can’t hurt to stay on top of things).
Lunch included a delicious veggie-filled salad, topped with all sorts of leftover shredded chicken from Sunday and some parmesan peppercorn dressing (OMG so good).
And not long after finishing that, I decided I needed chocolate so I broke into my dark chocolate stash and grabbed a square. Mmmm mmmmm.
Around 2:30 I was super chilly while working at my desk, and once again, found myself craving chocolate and sweets…
So I made myself a mug of hot chocolate and sipped on that for a while.
THEN…it was party time!!
My company had a super cute Halloween party yesterday afternoon for the kids of the employees, so I went and grabbed Lucas after work and brought him back for the festivities.
Or should I say…my little pirate.
I have better pics of his costume, I’ll show you guys soon.
Although my little pirate was still a little young to take part in any of the activities (cupcake decorating, pumpkin decorating, trick-or-treating, necklace making…there was so much!) he was able to “socialize” with some of mommy’s co-workers, and all things considered, he did fairly well. It was super busy with lots of people, but he managed to hold it together for the most part with only a little fussiness. He was also pooped too, and wound up falling asleep on my shoulder for a little while.
So while he slept, I used my free hand to enjoy an amazing apple cider donut.
There was also a mini Snickers and a couple pumpkins eaten too. Again…couldn’t get enough sweets.
By the time we got home around 6, there was no way I was cooking anything for dinner. Thankfully, we had leftovers from the night before, so I reheated a Chicken Caesar burger and had that while catching up for a bit with Jay.
That picture was from Monday night, so there were no fries involved last night.
A little while after dinner, I found myself in the kitchen again snacking on a couple “small slivers” of cookie bars that I had made on Monday night for Jay to bring to work (of course I kept some leftovers at home).
I really was just exhausted though and probably could have easily kept eating my way through the kitchen, so I figured I should just pack it in for the night and headed to bed.
Soooo, is there anyone else out there like me that wants all. the. food/snacks/chocolate. when they’re sleep deprived?
