It was bound to happen. I’m just shocked it took this long. With temptation calling out to me around every corner, I thought the inevitable would have overtaken my life by now. It’s been over four months since we last indulged. I’ve dreamed of this day since I last left you. So pure. So available. So tantalizing. You know what you are.
Oh baby! Yea, this is my first Subway experience since Christmas!! I don’t know how I held out so long.
If you’ve ever asked me the question, “what would you like for
10:30am snack dinner, Amanda?” you know that 99/100 times I’m going to respond with Subway. I’m a woman of consistency and routine. I should have a needlepoint pillow etched with the phrase “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” You know that I’ve eaten the same lunch for the past 6 months of teaching, so that should tell you three things about me:
2. I am nothing if not content with consistency
3. I lurve me a sammich!
I paired up my turkey breast (HOLD THE CHEESE; lettuce, tomato, pickles, cucumber, green AND banana peppers, olives, mustard and a splash of vinegar) on wheat with some fresh strawberries from Wally World.
When I took my first bite of juicy, berry goodness, I could barely contain myself.
Truly it was the perfect way to end a day abuzz with exploration and future planning. To kick off my day, I scratched another five-mile run on my belt, and followed it up with a great abs routine. The gym at the Courtyard Marriott has a weight bench, so I was able to up the intensity of each move by balancing on it.
I did three sets of each move and was able to feel the effects all day.
Afterwards, Dear Hubby and I spent the morning and early afternoon taking tours and weighing the pros and cons of several apartment complexes in the Jacksonville area. The two things we wanted to make sure of was that we were close to work and had a second bedroom for friends and family to come and visit us since we bribed a lot of favors using a free stay in our place as the carrot. With a move from Michigan to Florida coming up, we better make good on that offer.
After enjoying a refreshing Acai Berry Iced Tea at Panera Bread, it was time to head to our new home-away-from-home and officially meet our new principal. I have to say, I was really excited and nervous about seeing our new school. I absolutely loved the look of it from the outside, and as soon as I entered the building and walked the hallways, I knew that Dear Hubby and I had chosen well.
Everyone was so incredibly nice and welcoming to us. I am very pleased to know that some of my future colleagues are also reading my blog. When I found this out, I smiled and said something like, “Oh great! I am so glad you’re enjoying.” On the inside I was all:
Now that my tummy is full and my ego has been stroked, it’s about that time of the night for me to fall into slumber, imagining the new life that Dear Hubby and I are plotting out for ourselves.
