My first day

3 hours and 45 minutes just about did me in. I'm exhausted. My head is killing me. My feet and back hurt. And I was starving. But don't let all that bitchen fool you. I really enjoy it. Basically all I did today was learn things like what size families get how much food, what to put in certain bags, make sure you are giving the cart of food to the right person because that family of 1will sure enough will take a family of 5's cart if you let them (I made a 1 family women very happy today.. grrr). So yeah.. day number one I found out that people are extremely greedy and aren't always appreciative of what they get... even when they have nothing. They will seriously tell you that they don't like brown rice can they please have mac and cheese instead.. seriously?? I also learned that I better eat a good lunch before I go. Staring at food all day does a number on my appetite! Can't wait to see what Day 2 holds for me...

We had a pretty low key weekend. Friday night's dinner was Steak, potato casserole* and a salad. And possibly peach cobbler for dessert :) We watched a movie and for the life of me I can't remember now what it was called or even what it was about! It wasn't that bad either... that's pretty sad!
Saturday we got up early and went on a horrendously long, puke inducing delightful jog to work off all those calories from the night before. Went to a friends house early afternoon. Celebrated Jimmy's 1-year birthday. Wish I had some pictures.. he's the cutest thing ever... but I failed to bring my camera once again... and watched the Alabama football game. I was reminded once again of why I DO NOT start drinking at noon when I was asleep by 8:30. Nice.
Sunday involved a pointless trip to Wichita Falls where we got NOTHING accomplished.
Now it's back to the grind for Trey. It's his last week of real training for BOLC II. We don't have much - or any - contact with each other this week, but I'm thankful it's a short one. He has Friday off to celebrate Veteran's Day :) Yay for 3-days!!!

* Potato Caserole
1-2lb bag of hashbrowns

I *love* baked potato casserole. I used corn flakes instead of ritz and cream of chicken instead of celery. It's my favorite pot luck dish!

And I didn't read your blog until AFTER I emailed you! Totally disregard that email! :)

That casserole sounds like something the hubs and I would enjoy. I may just have to try it. I'll pass on the celery too.

Glad to hear you are enjoying the work.

I make the same potato casserole as JG...try the cream of chicken, it's what makes the casserole in my opinion.

This is only the second time I've EVER seen someone mention this casserole. It's a favorite of mine and Sean's and my mother has been making it for years.

Yay, I'm so glad you enjoyed the first day. That's such a great way to be spending your time, I admire you!

That casserole sounds good, I might have to try it!

And seriously, Peppermint Mochas year round?! You just changed my whole life, haha!

Uuuugh!!!! Jessica, I was following you for the longest time. I always wonder why I never see updates from some people and now I come and look and I'm not following. GRRRR

Next time I'm missing, come at me with a flip flop and yell. : D

I'm glad that you had a good day even though you're physically hurting. It'll get easier!
