Crazy times

I am adjusting well to the daily newspaper schedule. I am doing stories that I have always dreamed of doing. I am tired but happy to be doing what I love. I miss my big guy and little guy. I try to talk to them after the morning deadline and a few times in the evening.

My room is pretty cozy here. I have cable and internet access. However, there is a mirror. I have always felt mirrors were a trigger for me. But I am dealing with it. I try not to look in the mirror. The life of a journalist is hectic. I have to be at work at 7:30 a.m. I either eat a bowl of grits or a bowl of cereal while watching the Today show. Mid-morning-I eat a granola bar or some fruit. Depending on my assignments, I either eat lunch at my place or bring some to heat up and eat quick. I try to have mid-afternoon snack of Sun Chips, trail mix or dry cereal. Dinner is usually between 6 and 6:30 p.m. At night, I snack on whatever. During my workday, I drink water but once I get home I indulged in orange soda. Until my insurance is in effect, I follow this routine. It is so easy for me to skip a meal and eat just junk. I have worked hard in my recovery to get where I am. Plus, I need the energy to be a full-time hit the ground running reporter.
