The Day I Forgot My Pants

Today began with the regular morning ritual of running around, chugging coffee, and getting dressed- all rushed by the fact that I have to be basically dragged out of bed by my patient husband.  I quickly packed the hubby's lunch, forgot about mine, and was off to work!
Once I got to work I enjoyed my Thursday and realized midway through the day that I forgot my pants and started freaking out.  Before you think I'm some kind of a deviant, these were only my gym pants, (actually, my whole gym bag), but I can do wonders with a t-shirt- running in slacks, however, is not an option.  It reminded me of the episode of How I Met Your Mother when Marshall forgot his pants:

This is my favorite show ever.  Sorry if I lost anyone on that one.
I went to the $12 salad bar store and actually got a reasonably priced salad.  I call this Mediterranean/Asian Fusion:

  • Falafel with tahini
  • Olives
  • Ginger
  • Kim-Chee
  • Sprout and mung sprouts
  • Spinach
  • Siracha!
I also topped this off with a work-provided trailmix:

I had to chuck the peanuts because I wasn't feeling them.
I came home, carb loaded, changed into my pants, and now I'm not-so-patiently waiting to digest so that I can go to the gym. 

Announcements:
I'm on post 144, which means that I'm almost at 150!  The hubby will be making his posting debut at post 150, so get your party pants on and get ready!
