Eat Candy. Be Happy.
I am one of those paycheck to paycheck sorts. Not able to do much in the way of savings, what with my lavish lifestyle and all. So, generally, at my house we have rich week and poor week. It is actually quite festive! Well, rich week is at least. Anyway, this is poor week and apparently it is coinciding with rushed week or maybe just stupid week. My cupboards have become quite bare here at work. I try to keep a supply of lunches on hand...mostly things like Soup at Hand and Budget Gourmet frozen mac n'cheese. Somehow I let my supply dwindle down to nothing besides those little packages of oatmeal. Now, here's where the rushed or stupid comes in. I could just bring a sandwich or something from home. Of course I could! I just keep...not. Somehow. So I ate oatmeal for a couple of days, then got sick of it. Today I ate a pack of Cheezits left over from storytime and called it lunch. Luckily, Babymama was showing a movie for the teens today and had made popcorn. She also provided some little tiny chocolate bars and soda. I stopped in, you know, just to see how things were going and was able to score popcorn, a couple little candy bars and a little cup o Coke. The candy was especially pleasing to me...dark chocolate! Yes! And that, my friends, is all it takes to make me happy.
