I received a ThinKThin Brownie Crunch protein bar (clever name!) from one of my Cravebox‘es. This one, to be exact. Honestly, I was scared to try it. Another protein bar in a chocolate flavor? How ghastly can it be? I’ve eaten my share of protein bars. Some good, some bad but I always get sick of it. I’ve been unusually hungry the last few days – getting ready for hibernation since it’s getting colder, I dunno. Started working out? (kinda, but it’s better than nothing) I’m not exactly sure why. I’ve near exhausted my food supply (food I bring from home because food prices around my office are frightening in a bad way) and I found this lurking underneath a big pile of junk I didn’t feel like chomping on. I might as well, since I’m still hungry….
And it’s pretty damn good! This would be a great chocolate fix without all the added calories and sugar. I just ate half and I’m full and want to go to sleep. Ha ha.
I’m stuck at work today. I have no sick/vacation days left because my maternity leave earlier this year depleted most of my supply. Ugh. It’s gotta be the slowest day ever and I have work, which makes it worse.
I received my flu shot on Friday and I’ve been feeling really tired and lethargic since then. I had 7 hours of sleep on Friday night and I should feel really refreshed because that’s a lot of sleep for me these days but I was so so so tired. I’m still tired today because BB was acting up last night. Zzzz…
Happy Columbus Day! My boss just told me that you’re supposed to wear red on Columbus Day. I had no idea. Did anyone know that? LOL
Meanie is at home with CB and they went to have fun somewhere. He dropped BB off at my parents’ place. BB has been acting very peculiar lately, in a bad way. He must be stuck on me, like white on rice, 24/7. I know, it’s the dreaded separation anxiety. It’s here and it’s here to stay. 😦 He screams bloody murder when I put him to bed in his crib now. 😦 We were so desperate for sleep we even tried co-sleeping but he wouldn’t have it. Phew! What he REALLY wanted was for me to bring him to the guest room (where we hung out in those days when he was a wee newborn and sleep with him there; and how we nap on the weekends). I really hope this doesn’t become a nightly thing!
So I’m exhausted. And I just got a bunch of work. *sigh* 😦
This was how it used to be for BB and me:
Back in the day when he would sleep in his bouncer next to me. Back in the day when he was this tiny! He’s ginormous now! He still fits in that bouncer but his feet hangover the edge. 🙂 These days, I just make a little pen for him on top of the bed with pillows (so he can’t roll over them and topple to the ground) and I sleep horizontally, next to his “pen”.
