...yesterday when I was kind of freaking out because it was my first day off on the new part time schedule and it was all rainy and dreary out and I woke up and sat at the kitchen table and the cat was staring at me and I was kind of second guessing the whole shebang?

Yeah. Scratch that.

It was pretty awesome. I did a billion errands. Did not feel bored or stressed or cranky.
Still taught 2 classes in the evening so felt productive and happy and fit.

AND. The most fascinating thing is.... From wake-up until 4pm, all I ate was a bowl of oatmeal.
Yes! Ms. Hungry-Every-Ten-Minutes ate a single meal for approximately 7 hours.
Let us all take this moment to appreciate the extreme power of Boredom Eating.

Please tell me you meant to type 4pm, because I'd be worried if you were up until four in the morning.

Also, I couldn't help giggling when I misinterpreted your "Ms. Hungry-Every-Ten-Minutes ate a single meal for approximately 7 hours" by picturing you eating a bowl of oatmeal tiny bite by tiny bite for seven hours straight. :)

So glad this new schedule is giving you what you need.
