Being A Grown-Up

18 Jun

Some days you just can’t get away from having to be an adult. All the blanket forts in the world won’t help you if you don’t pay your car insurance on time and then drive your car.

So on that day when I have to go be a grown-up and pay a ridiculous amount of money to the insurance company I make sure to outwardly display my internal maturity…which fyi, isn’t all that high! lol

That’s how I ended up wearing my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cap to the insurance company’s office…

I suppose I could argue that I was being grown-up and responsible by wearing a hat on a sunny day but that wasn’t my motivation and I won’t pretend it was lol ๐Ÿ˜›

I Adulted

3 Feb

I was so proud on Saturday night. I worked until 9pm and before I left work I took a look at the menu for the next day. On Sunday I would be working the day shift, so eating lunch at work, and lunch on Sundays tends to be more brunch like – so pancakes or waffles or some such thing. Which is tasty but is soooooo not healthy and definitely not something to indulge in every-freakin-Sunday.

Lo and behold Sunday’s lunch was eggs benedict with Canadian back bacon and some veggies grilled and covered in cheese, sigh.

So here is where the adulting came in…

I got home from work around 9:45pm and promptly started cooking. The cat thought I was nuts lol

I popped a honey garlic glazed chicken breast in the oven and while that did its thing the rice cooked in the rice cooker, the sweet potato got sliced and popped in the microwave so I could steam it and while waiting for things to cook I chopped up a bunch of veggies because when I am not super lazy I like to ingredient prep.

In the end I ended up with a freakishly healthy lunch for Sunday!

It got packed in to one of my Disney’s Frozen tupperware, cause hey, I can’t be tooooo grown-up lol and I took some salsa with me to put on top of the rice. When I was putting my lunch on a plate at work and heating it up the chef said I should take some of the veggies they had made cause they were super delish and who am I to turn up more veggies? So here is what I ended up eating…

Before you think I am a weirdo for having my chicken cut up I did that to make sure it was heated all the way through. ๐Ÿ˜›

Now don’t fret that I am acting all grown-up all the time, I assure you, I am not. I think I manage it about once a month if lucky? lol

To prove that, my dinner on Monday was this…

Yup, that’s right, it was marble cake. Sadly, it was not good…and yet…I ate it…*rolls eyes* I didn’t even get the expected sugar rush that would have gotten me through the next couple hours, nope, I ate it and promptly had a nap…cementing my place as the world’s oldest toddler teehee
