OTRA: Day 4

Today was a disaster, and not just in terms of food. My son decided (like he had a choice) to get sick this week. Remember we're out of town? Today (and some of yesterday) was spent on the phone with our pediatrician, insurance company, and various labs/doctors who may or may not accept our insurance. Super fun.

Breakfast: Green monster. I didn't add enough peanut butter and it was too banana-y for me. Also very green. Must have added more spinach than I thought in my sleep-deprived stupor.

Snack: Store-brand honey nut Chex in between dropping The H off at work 1/2 hour away and running to a doc's appt in the opposite direciton.

Lunch: It was eaten in the car, from a place that asks if you want fries with that, while my son snoozed in his car seat. My sandwich was chicken, I declined fries. Didn't realize the sandwich had bacon on it, but man was it tasty. Got fruit and shared it with my son when he woke up looking dazed. Drank some brown carbonation that gave me some wicked gas the rest of the day. Painful and wicked. TMI, right? Oh well. Live and learn.

Snack: I have no recollection of a snack. Quite possibly, the calories I had at lunch held me over until dinner. I did stop at McDonald's with my son to get ice cream for his hoarse sore throat, but I did not eat anything.

Dinner: Hamburger (white bun, tomato, cheese, mustard, and lettuce), potato chips, and watermelon. This was the meal for the hotel's "happy hour" social gathering in the lobby. The H ate one without a bun, and we gave my son leftover gluten-free mac + cheese, melon, and some veggie burger. The v.b. was actually very tasty and I kind of wish I'd eaten that instead of most of the beef patty that was as big as my face. Oh well again. It tasted good and I didn't have too cook it. Also had a small glass of red wine. After our heck of a day, it was just right.

Snack: Chips and salsa, decaf with milk.
