It's Cinco de Mayo?

by Meghann on May 5, 2010

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I had almost forgot that today was Cinco de Mayo until 3:00 pm my co-workers started heading to the board room for our company fiesta. Yes, my office drinks in the middle of the day – don’t judge. ;)

I decided not to partake in the food and booze portion of the festivities, but I did take out some frustration with the games set up for the party. Nerf gun darts and corn hole anyone? Nothing like a couple of rounds of games built for an 8 year old to bring out the little kid in all of us. :)

While my co-workers snacked on chips and guacamole, I had some carrots and a spoonful of almond butter.

When I left the office around 5:00 pm, the majority of my male co-workers were still playing with the nerf dart guns. I would have loved to continue kicking their booties at darts – I seriously rock the nerf dart board – but I had places to go and people to see.

Well, really I only had one person to see.

Hi Caitlin!

Caitlin invited me to hot yoga after work this afternoon and we had decided to meet for a cup of tea before hand.

It was nice to catch up on life and blogs.

Hot yoga was extra sweaty this evening. I blame the near 90 temps we’ve been experiencing on that one. Our teacher encouraged us to focus on the modification version of poses tonight. It was a nice change of pace, but still very challenging.

As yoga lets out on the later side, dinner had to be quick and painless.

At lunch time I had placed a container of frozen Coconut Red Lentil Soup in the fridge to defrost. When I arrived home I simply heated it up in the microwave for a couple of minutes, topped it with some peanuts, and dinner was served.

A dry piece of toast was great for soaking up all the soupy juices.

For dessert I had the last of my container of Thin Mint Ice Cream with TJ’s Mini PB Cups.

Still no word on the garmin. *sniff * sniff

I think re-watching last night’s Glee will help make me feel better.

Here’s hoping for better luck tomorrow!

Good night!

The flyers are up! During my lunch break I posted more than a dozen flyers around my complex. I put one on each of my neighbor’s doors in my building, one in the stairwell exactly where it went missing, one on each set of mailboxes in the complex, and the last at the rec building more »

Someone Stole my Garmin

May 5, 2010

It was a sad morning in the Graduate Meghann household today. As I’ve done a hundred times in the past, this morning I turned my Garmin on and sat it in the stairwell to gain satellite signal. I went back inside my apartment to place Maddie in her crate and lock the door. I couldn’t more »
