My office moved to a a pricier neighborhood last fall so now a basic lunch (sandwich, drink, no chips, etc.) is $10+. I realized I would be broke unless I started brown bagging it so the last few Sundays I've been buying a week's worth of turkey burgers, cooking them up and bringing them in Monday morning. Only $8 for the week, plus a few extra bucks for bread or buns, and I usually bring some fruit in too.
Last night I had a million things to do (laundry, ironing, bike maintenance, scanning in some photos I just took, getting our taxes ready to mail out, etc.)...I managed to cook the burgers and put them aside to cool before putting them in the fridge overnight, as I always do.
This morning, I woke up, went to get my tea and saw the plate still on the counter...there goes a week's worth of lunch. Plus now I am starving.
Do you kick yourself when you make stupid mistakes like this? I realize in the big picture this is nothing. Two of my riding buddies got hit by a car Saturday (They were bruised and shaken up but appear to be okay, thank God; both bikes were totaled)...if not for a sprained ankle I would have been right there with them. Still, I have a hard time letting go...I am guessing Freud's anal theory factors in here somehow.
