Sometimes I wish I didn't have to eat. It is not that I don't enjoy food. I am sure I enjoy it the same as most people. Though I do have a sensitive stomach, I'm mostly used to that as well. It is just that eating is a pain. You have to arrange the time to do it, line up the food for it, and you have to do it while juggling everything else that is going on, which lately, has been a lot.
It would be nice to be like nuclear powered or something - you throw in a new fuel rod every 20 years and that is that. On top of the time saved not eating, you could also save time by not having to use the bathroom. That's also a pain.
It is also a pain when there simply isn't time to really eat anything, as I see happen often now on any day I have court. Some judges seem to just like to push right through lunch time. I had one case start at 9 am and we finished at 4 pm, with no lunch break. I had a massive headache by the end of the day and was not feeling particularly good. Now I have animal crackers in little packets in my court-bag so I can at least make sure I get some calories in me on a break. Animal crackers seem to work best as a relatively stomach-friendly snack that won't give me a headache.
As it is now, I choke down frozen dinners at work and try to scramble to find something to feed myself and my children after work. We ate out a lot. We still eat out, but I'm trying to cut back on that to save money and also mabye be a bit healthier, though that is hard when we just have frozen dinners instead.
Maybe when the children are older, we can do more cooking, though that has the additional difficulty of preparation time and cleaning up.
Oh well. I guess I'm stuck. Maybe the nuclear powered stomachs will come out next year.
