As you may already know, the last few weeks have been very difficult for me. On top of all of the drama surrounding my daughter, I have been smacked head-on with the reality of my depression. While I am up each day at 5:45 a.m. readying my children for their days at school, once I've gotten them both to their destinations, I quickly crawl back into bed and sleep my day away.
I am not at all proud of this behavior. I know that the fact that I am able to sleep 6 hours a day and still get in another 8 - 9 hours each night should be alarming to me - and it is. I have resolved myself to making some changes. While I still slept 4 hours today, I DO have to bartend tonight. Going forward, I am resolving to only sleep late or nap on the days I have to work.
I know you're wondering what this has to do with the glorious sandwich above...
Lemme tell you...
On Tuesday, I had to run to The Man's work to pick up 2 of our hockey tickets for the night. Being I had slept the majority of the day away, I had not yet eaten. I decided to stop at the local McDonald's to get a Diet Coke (cuz there really isn't much that's better than fountain Diet Coke) to hold me over until I got back home.
That's when I saw it! Shining down at me like a beacon of love! A picture of the McRib sandwich with the ever so catchy tag line, "It's Back!"
I knew right then and there, I had to have one!
I ordered one glorious sandwich - without pickles (cuz pickles are cucumbers soaked in evil) - and could feel my body bursting with anticipation!
This, my friends, is how the McRib saved my life.
