NaBloPoMo 10: Too. Much. Travel.

This morning I got up and had my usual breakfast. I eat the instant oatmeal Weight Watchers sells at their meetings. The maple and brown sugar flavor. I put a cup of frozen blueberries in it, and it tastes like blueberry pancakes. And only 2 points!

That was it for the phytonutrients until dinner.

I headed to Midway airport and took a flight to Baltimore, then to Providence, RI, where I rented a car and drove to my brother's house in Wellesley, MA.

Lunch consisted of:

A packet of Ritz snack crackers
A packet of peanuts
A cup of coffee
A refill
Two packets of peanuts
A diet coke

By the time I got to Henry's (Blackbird and Susie Sunshine, repeat after me, HI HENRY!) I had all the allure of a piece of petrified, flavorless chewing gum that had been stuck to the bottom of an airplane seat.

Dinner helped. I had spinach salad and tuna prepared three ways. And two glasses of red wine.

But honestly, travel food is sooooooooooooooooo bad.

I have to pack something for the trip home.


  1. I can't believe they fed you even that much on the plane. We always expect to starve, so we pack apples, raisins, string cheese...

    ... and M&Ms for good measure.

    Not so healthy, but an excellent way to bribe antsy children into good behavior.

  2. HENRY.
    Wicked clutch hitah.

    Please climb up and hug him for me.

  3. Considering you were traveling, you didn't do too badly points-wise. I'm impressed.

  4. You were next door, in the very next town, not 2 miles from me? You din't call, you didn't write?

    I just don't know what to say. I will mention that now I am horribly depressed and will go and chew on my toes for a bit. Sob.
