Look who I got to eat lunch with. Yay!
The Husband normally â€˜forgetsâ€™ to take a real lunch break while at the clinic; heâ€™s either spending extra time with a patient or filling orders or answering emails. I finally started to build in lunch appointments to his calendar (I know, I know â€“ Iâ€™m supposed to be retired from my secretarial duties but I canâ€™t help it â€“ itâ€™s our business!), and today, he had enough time for a legit lunch break.
It is almost too hot for deck lunches. I think the dog days of summer are nearly upon us in Charlotteâ€¦
Why yes, I would like a sandwich with all my produce.
Melted goat cheese and apples <— killer combo.
I was thinking about lunch breaksâ€¦ Obviously, since I self-employed, my lunch breaks arenâ€™t very structured, but I confess â€“ I eat most of my breakfasts and lunches in front of the computer. Itâ€™s not ideal but I canâ€™t help it and prefer to multitask. Also, I like to eat slowly (that lunch took me 45 minutes to eat), so I tend to write, write, pick at my meal, write, answer an email, pick at my mealâ€¦ You get the point.
When I worked in an office, I usually ate lunch at my desk, too. My boss was fine with me coming in a half hour late if I did that, and I used the extra half hour to go the gym before work. When I needed a dedicated break, I would just go for a little walk outdoors, but I rarely made my lunch a break. Occasionally, I would eat in the break room with my coworkers or, if the weather was really nice, weâ€™d sit outside and eat (this was in Pittsburgh â€“ if itâ€™s over 65 and sunny, everyone is outside at every possible moment).
Do you eat work lunches at your desk? Or do you take a dedicated break?
