Translation Tuesday: Full Meal Deal

What originally stood for an unlimited amount of access and classes to our favorite gym, has now morphed into something quite different.

The Full Meal Deal refers to the treatment of my luggage for the workday.

Yes, luggage.

You see each morning I have a backpack with my work stuff in it, a lunchbag for myself, a bottle/food bag for Tillie, my pump bag, and somedays diapers/wipes/back-up clothes as the need arises.

That is a lot of crap to schlep on top of carrying an almost 20 pound baby.

So, the full meal deal was born. Originally the full meal deal included Nate taking all of my bags out to the car, and starting it up to get it nice and toasty for us. He would do this before hopping on his bike while Tillie and I were getting ready to go to work.

Now that the weather is nice out, I suppose it is like a 'half' meal deal since I don't need the car started. But seriously, Nate is basically a part-time sherpa in the mornings.

LOVE this translation! Doesn't it feel like you could go on a week long beach vacation with the amount of 'luggage' needed every day?!?!
