I had a bad day at work today. I couldn't get hold of sources, my editor was irritating me, and the more I delved into my story, the more I realized how complicated it was and that I needed more time but that I wasn't going to get it. My deadline is noon tomorrow.
Also, I'm still waiting on more than $3,300 I should have received two weeks ago - from a freelance story I wrote and a reimbursement from my healthcare company. To top it off, I forgot to bring my running shoes with me to work, so no run tonight.
On my way home, feeling a bit low, frustrated and hungry, I stopped at McDonald's and bought a small order of fries and a regular hamburger. Quelle horreur! I don't eat fast food, but sometimes in a great while, it just hits the spot.
I looked up the calorie counts online: 230 for the fries and 260 for the hamburger, for a total of 490 calories. So the damage isn't too great.
