Nothing like remembering you have a 12 hour shift ahead of you. Thankfully I remembered early enough to go ahead and get ready to get some sleep. So I am winding down now and waiting for the heavy eyes to kick in. But ya know what my thought was after I realized I had to work 12 hours tonight? “Oh shit! What am I going to eat?!” I hate that food is that big of a deal. I mean, yeah you need to eat, but it shouldn’t send you into a mini-panic attack. So I calmed myself and told myself that I could stop at the grocery store on the way to work and get some watermelon that has been chopped up already and some sandwich stuff or pre-made sandwiches. That would make sure that I had food. But for a moment I was a mess. I may get a bagged salad, too.
But this all made me realize I really need to plan better. My lack of planning seems to really screw me over a lot. And part of that is because I live 5 minutes from the grocery store. My philosophy seems to be that if I don’t have it, the grocery store is just 5 minutes away. But it is not always convenient to stop at the store. So this was a minor victory, I suppose. I had a lightbulb moment! I don’t consider myself to be a dumb person, but damn! I do some dumb things!
