Today started roughly. I packed my lunch bag, fruit and Chili. Gathered my laptop and work bags. Went out to my car. Put everything inside. Then prepared to pull out the drive way. I turned the key to start the engine. Nothing. I tried again. Nothing. The car battery had completely died on me.
I had to jump start my car and move it to a different part of the driveway so it wasn’t blocking the other cars, because I didn’t trust it to not go out once I got to work. I then got a ride to the train station.
At this point I was seriously considering leaving my lunch behind because mass transit commuting with 3 bags isn’t fun. Especially when there’s a 10 minutes walk to the office involved. But I held fast.
By the time I reached the office I was famished. I grabbed my fruit salad and headed into a meeting.
I ate lunch around 12:30pm, and really enjoyed it. I was worried that I wouldn’t like it since this would be the second day eating Chili but it was definitely what I needed.
Day 2. $14 saved! $28 total…this is going pretty well!
