I hope you guys have all been able to stay safe and dry these past few days. I’ve been lucky to have electricity, but it also means I’ve been showing up at the hospital all week to help out wherever I’m needed.

Tuesday, started early, with a quick shower and breakfast.

Lunch was brought from home. After Monday’s madness, it seemed like the sanest way to go. The sandwich had hummus, non-fat ricotta, eggplant, spinach, roasted pepper, and heirloom tomato.

The afternoon flew by. I felt like I was out of breath from going up and down the stairs and from room to room or hunting for a computer to chart at.

I don’t know why I thought laundry would be a good idea, but I did. Ouch. I guess the best way to get something done is give it to a busy person. I was on a roll or something…dinner eventually happened, another fridge-cleaning experience—aka, a version of the egg-white scrambles I make when I have no idea what else to make.

I don’t know why this photo is sideways. Oh well.

After packing breakfast and lunch for the next day, I took a shower, blow-dried my hair, and ate a sliced apple while reading emails I was way too tired to answer.img 0634 - What I Ate Wednesday #82: Hurricane Edition

Here’s to hoping I get my compensatory day off before working this weekend. Universe, please help me out here!
