First remote week in months. Walked into the grocery store to go shopping for the week, got overwhelmed, bought cookie dough and La Croix and walked out. Does anyone actually grocery shop on the reg?

The lawsuit is dumb. Actually google the ingredients. They’re all naturally derived. So what if they figured out how to make them cheaper via chemical engineering? It’s still a substance that occurs in nature. Whether or not that substance is good for you should be the issue. Freakin lawyers.

I go to the store on Friday, prep for grain bowls that I eat over the weekend, usually there’s enough leftover that I can keep it in the fridge til Thursday evening. Eat that when I get home, start over on Friday. I also pack healthy snacks (fruit, nuts, homemade energy bars, roasted chickpeas is my fave) that I bring with me when I travel, makes a huge difference

I don’t belong in my job. I didn’t mind it when I joined in January and was interacting but as we’ve been work from home longer, the less motivation I have.

At this point I just am doing the bare minimum to not get fired. What do I do? Should I look for a job that I actually would enjoy doing or stick it out?

My husband has been antsy to go back to work and has informed me that he absolutely has to go back tomorrow no matter what and we should just send her back to daycare with a dose of Motrin in the morning.
