Testing out the New Desk

by Meghann on May 10, 2011

I had a plan today. A good plan.

….go to Hooker Tea Co… do some work… finally check out Rollin Oats (a cute health store that has been blowing up my twitter stream ๐Ÿ˜‰ )… pick up something for dinner… head home… wait for Derek to get home…

Instead I drove all the way to South Tampa to discover I left my wallet at home.

Sad face.


It was a far drive, so I spent a good 15 minutes scouring my car for enough loose change to buy a tea (it was a no go) before calling it quits.

Then I had a cookie.


I drove all the way to South Tampa to eat a left over cookie in my car. It’s how I roll. ๐Ÿ˜‰


It wasn’t so bad. I lost a lot of time, but I did end up saving myself some $$. You win some, you lose some, right?

I came back home and decided to take the new desk in the second bedroom for a test drive.


(excuse the mess, I’m still in the process of organizing – feel free to volunteer to make the process go faster ๐Ÿ˜‰ )


Working from the desk was great. I sat there for three hours and got as much done as I usually do in a coffee shop. I really enjoyed working in a separate room where I had no laundry, dishes, or TV to distract me. (I usually work in the living room in the morning, but it’s distraction city in there!) There was the mess on the desk, but for some reason that didn’t bother me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Maddie on the other hand, had no idea what to do with herself.


She spent the first 15 minutes circling the room, trying to figure out why I was in there and not near the comfy couch where she could easily curl up in a ball and sleep.


After I realized she wasn’t going to leave my side (it’s not like I locked her in the room with me), I brought her bed in from the living room to give her a comfy spot to lie next to me.


Much better. With the addition of the comfy bed, the room was officially Maddie approved.



Derek worked late again tonight. Eating dinner alone isn’t as fun as it used to be. :/


This is my version of a classic All-American Meal. ๐Ÿ™‚

Beginning with the Apple Chicken Sandwich with spinach ketchup and spicy mustard between two slices of wheat bread.


Almost as good as a roll, but when there are no rolls around… we improvise.


Sweet Potato Fries =




Another cookie for dessert. These babies are GOOD!

Another Day, Another Salad

May 10, 2011

The salad craving from last night continued on into today. Do you ever have a craving that just won’t stop? I suspect that means it’s officially summer and all I want is cool and refreshing things. I’m sure my waistline doesn’t mind that one bit. Of course, when you begin to throw on as many more ยป
