Since I have been working an extra job I have no time to cook. Or I should say that I am not organised enough to cook. If this were to become my normal routine I would have to find a few minutes here and there to cook some chicken and boil some rice or pasta. It wouldn't be terribly hard just not as leisurely as it used to be. Right now I am living on pizza and leftovers. I thought this was going to be the last crazy weekend but I believe I will be working next weekend too. My next free weekend won't be until November 7th. That seems so far away.
In response to my diminished free time, my grocery bill has tripled. Ok, I can blame some of that on the dogs for their food, treats and flea prevention. The rest is convenience food and treats for myself. The last grocery trip included candy bars, donuts, cheetos and angel food cake. I am rewarding myself for working hard. Unfortunately, both of my jobs are sedentary desk jobs. I don't get any exercise. Plus, now that it is dark in the morning and dark when I get home, I don't go for walks. I've started playing fetch with the dogs down the hallway in order to give them exercise. It doesn't do much for me.
I am looking forward to having my weekends back so that I have some time to go for a walk while it is light outside and to cook my meals again. It is easy for me to take those simple things for granted when I have time available but now I miss them the most.
