Oh Friday. The end of the work week. The day many of us yearn for all week long.
…and also the day we run out of food in the fridge.
I had pretty slim pickings this morning when it came to breakfast and packing a lunch. Breakfast was an apple that has probably been sitting on the counter for too long, and a defrosted muffin. Lunch was some leftover pasta and combined with the scraps from one of those roasted chickens…you know the ones. I’ve been trying to be diligent about using food that is at home, even if it’s not the most appealing option. But as a reward to myself I stopped at Tim Horton’s on the way to work to get my medium steeped tea – one milk, one cream, one sugar.
It cost less than $2 and it made me happy all morning. Could I have gone without this tea? Probably. But instead of spending $10-$30 on breakfast + lunch, I packed my mediocre food and rewarded myself with a tea. I consider this smart spending. The best scenario would have been that I didn’t get the tea AND packed my food, but we all can’t be perfect all the time.
