I guess I will have to face it. You are just too dedicated. Not a bad thing at all.

I eat at work too, but I am usually in the car driving from one school to the other. I eat fast so that I can go into the next place when I get there. I don't have a paid lunch break, so I do it this way. Sometimes I guess I could say that I eat slow because I eat some of my lunch on several trips in the car.

I'm allowed 30 minutes a day, not paid. Most times, I am in the middle of a thought or wording of a care plan, I can't stop, I have to get it down. By the time I realize I forgot to eat it could be 3 or 4 PM. I go home at 5...which is darn close to 12 hours since I ate last (breakfast). Eating while I work means I at least get my meal in and not working in a "starved" condition which is worse for my multiple health conditions.

We all do what we need to do. Relaxing and eating lunch is for weekends, and for after retirement.

Yes, I enjoyed my pancakes this mooring with nothing to distract me.
