Week 3 began full of challenges. A meeting that was supposed to be at a local bar after school got moved to a favorite Mexican restaurant where, just a month ago, I ate a truly delicious steak burrito. Today though? Diet coke with lime. No chips, no salsa, no burrito. I sat with my colleagues, planning out our scholastic bowl schedule, chatting and laughing, not even noticing that I hadn’t eaten anything. Sure, the chips smelled great, and the gooey cheese on one plate of quesadillas would probably have made me swoon if I’d let it… but I didn’t.
I came home to make a bowl of tomato soup, which I’ve mastered making taste fantastic. A teaspoon of lemon juice, and some pre-mixed “pizza seasoning” from our spice rack, and it’s a delicious warm meal. I hadn’t realized that I was a product short, so a smoothie it was. Since it’s fall, out came the pumpkin spice! It needs some tweaking, but it was delicious.
I’m constantly looking for quotes and sayings to keep me motivated. I ran across this today, and, since it’s Friday night and I’m procrastinating grading my mountain of papers in the car, I made this:
Nothing worth anything is ever truly easy. Everything important takes effort or work or both. Sure, I may struggle here or there, but I’m trusting that it’s going to be worth it!
