Today was rather uneventful. I finished my demos, and had the afternoon free of meetings to work on stuff, which was a rarity. Usually my calendar is packed with meetings. I ordered Jimmy John’s for lunch for the team. It seems to be a hump day tradition around these parts.
I got the Vito italian sandwich and a pickle. I’d never had a JJ pickle before, but was feeling pickle-y (what can I say, I’m pregnant).
The pickle was seriously almost as big as my sandwich. At this point, I think it classifies as a salad.
3:00 pm chocolate break also made its presence.
The team decided to do our own thing for dinner after work, and I was feeling reclusive. Plus, my feet were getting super swollen. Maybe it was the running this morning? I headed back to the hotel to put my feet up for a while. I didn’t feel like trekking out into the wild to forage for food, so I took advantage of the Manager’s reception the hotel has every Monday through Wednesday night. They serve a light fare dinner of sorts and the menu changes daily. Tonight it was a BBQ theme with burgers and hot dogs. They also have a salad bar, snacks like mixed nuts and chips, and beverages. I’m not partaking on the free wine or beer (sad panda) but I did grab a kielbasa and mixed up a salad.
That bun was huge. After about three bites I put the bun aside and just ate the kielbasa. I don’t know why I started eating my burgers and sausages with buns again; the flavor is all in the meat anyway. I guess I like the convenience of eating with my hands, because above all I am lazy and who has time to use a fork and knife?
It’s only 7:00 and I’m debating on whether or not just to turn in now, or go out for a walk and see what kind of trouble I can get into. My restlessness says “find trouble!” but my swollen feet prefer stay where I am in my comfy hotel bed. Travel is fun, but it kind of sucks to travel alone sometimes. At least I can relish being responsible for only me, and having this gift of free time where I can do whatever I want to do. That’s a rare thing these days.
Have a most wonderful night! What kind of trouble do you plan on getting into?
