Reality Check

I’ve been feeling rather ‘off’ ever since I returned home two nights ago. It almost feels like I was in an alternate universe the past month and now I’m back in reality.

I’m wondering if it’s because of my lack of sleep, or perhaps the frightening amount of chapters and lectures I need to get through by the end of the week in order to take my finals.

I’m thinking it’s the latter with maybe a sprinkling of the former.

So…what does one do when one returns to so-called reality?

Sort the mail? – nope

Begin studying for finals? – nah

Unpack? – definitely not

Grocery shopping? – YEP!

Thats an important order of business around here 😉

yogurt, cottage cheese, raspberries, and a 16 oz un-pictured container of giant blueberries

I never thought I’d actually miss having yogurt and cottage cheese.

rice cakes, Mr. Wheat apple cinnamon crispy wheat, chocolate almond milk, cereal x’s 2

I’m hoping that crispy brown rice makes for a crispier 5 ingredient crispy.

 and two staples – almond milk and bananas

After I took care of my first order of business, I finally moved on to the others, and while I was sorting through the mail, I found this beauty addressed to me.

These pita crisps are SO good. They’re equally as addicting as the cinnamon apple Mr. Wheat crispy wheat I just bought. I ate my way through about half of each yesterday afternoon and was more than happy they spoiled my appetite for dinner. Yep, I enjoyed them that much.

Then I crashed by 10pm. Thank you jet lag.

This morning I met up with this gal at a nature preserve to catch up while also working up a sweat.

It was nice to kinda feel like we weren’t in the city for a bit as we walked and hiked 7 miles between lush trees and tall grass.

But once again I was back to reality afterwards as it was time to face those books.

I hope everyone has a lovely Sunday 🙂

What’s the first thing you do when you come home from a trip?
