You may be surprised to know that betsylife isn’t all sunshine and cupcakes. This girl actually works for a living. My “money job” is QuickBooks consulting for small businesses, which is very boring, but easy and flexible, and allows me time to do all the other things I love in my life such as writing this blog for you to enjoy. Occasionally however, all my clients strike at once and I wind up in a shit storm of paperwork. I like to refer to it as “being chained to my desk” Unfortunately for me, last week, this week, and probably next week, are forecasting this direction. Sigh. So very boring and tedious. Anyway, I can’t really complain because the MAJORITY of my time is spent on fun so this is a small price to pay.
Whenever I’m chained to my desk eating is completely forgotten. After 13 hours straight of extremely boring paperwork today, I decided to make my way to the kitchen to scrounge for food. Of course I started with a key lime cupcake and followed that up with handful of lunchmeat. It doesn’t help that tomorrow is grocery shopping day so there is slim pickin’s in the fridge. Still hungry ,I went for an old classic and one of my main staples. Popcorn! Sometimes I say that I would live on coffee and popcorn alone if I could. Here’s a little money saving/healthful tip for y’all. I buy my popcorn from the bulk bins at Henrys. I just put a handful of kernels in a plain, brown lunch bag, roll up the end, and stick in the microwave on the sensor popcorn setting (be sure to lay the bag on its side). Works JUST like microwave popcorn but the best part is, if you have unpopped kernels leftover, just put them back in, and fire up the microwave again! No waste! Plus, you can flavor it however you want so you always know what you’re getting, and you know its not chemicals. Ok, I use “spray butter” but that’s my choice.
Cheers to Hump day tomorrow! One day closer to that glorious friend we call weekend and one day closer to being freed from my yucky desk!
