Back to reality

After spending a nice night at home with my mom last night, I woke up this morning feeling very refreshed. She took excellent care of me–I woke up to ironed clothes and a packed lunch. I was in my car by 7:00, and on my way back to Johnstown. The 45 minute drive back down was very pleasant. When I was in high school and living at home, I would make that drive every day, at least once. It is as scenic as scenic gets, with no cell service at all. It has plenty of sharp turns and is treacherous in the winter, but with a mug full of coffee and my favorite morning radio show it is a relaxing and peaceful way to start a day. For breakfast I made two packets of instant oatmeal, added some pb and cinnamon, and took it to go with me for the drive.

Work flew by again today as I was busy with a seminar this morning and prepping for our event next week. Before I knew it, I was heading out the door. I ran two errands and came home to relax for 1/2 an hour before going to work at the restaurant. Unfortunately, I only had 1 table tonight and made $6, definitely not the most profitable night, but you take the good with the bad and at least I enjoyed the company of the other girl working. I also had some tasty Manhattan Clam Chowder soup and and crusty french bread before I left. Delish!

Since it was so slow I left around eight, came home and got things ready for work tomorrow. My mornings are so much easier when I plan ahead the night before.

Now I’m relaxing on the couch and watching a Saturday Night Live special about the show over last decade. The cast members of the show from 2000 to now are talking about the skits and how politics and social issues affected the content and the characters. Its a cool way to look back at the last ten years plus I’m cracking up! Tina Fey is my all time favorite SNL cast member, but I also love Jimmy Fallon and Amy Poehler. Do you have a favorite SNL cast member or skit that sticks out in your mind?

I’m headed to bed after this show and I’m looking forward to getting in some time at the gym tomorrow morning before work.
