I’m trying my best to be chipper this morning but I’m just not feelin’ it (after speaking with 3 different Sears people who told me “they can’t change the system.”) I can totally tell that chemicals are making me feel so cranky – some kind of anger chemicals in my blood related to anxiety/stress over this stove stuff, or perhaps PMS? Either way, I can tell something’s not right up there in an out-of-body observation kind of way. I’m just not myself. So sorry to be so melodramatic about this – blame the chemicals!
Microwave oats aren’t doin’ it for me anymore. I tried Jennifer’s method of 9 minutes at power level 3 and they were still soupy after that so I did some minutes on high and almost had an explosion! I miss my stove-top emulsion
- 1/3 cup oats, milk, water, pinch salt, tiny banana
- 1/4 cup ea. wheatberries + cottage cheese
- 1/3 JamFranka PB Crisp (loved it!)
- Spoonful Smuckers Natural (Tina and I were chatting online yesterday about the deliciousness of Barney Butter and since we were both out of it, we decided to order some simultaneously!)
Chandelier coffee – made with a splash of egg nog!!
The husband brought me these flowers last night <3
Early this afternoon we are joining Karen and Gran Bett for a Christmas Show by the Charlotte Symphony. I love the arts and don’t get to as many performances as I wish I could because of the cost, but going to see more community theater is a New Year’s resolution of mine. And I am thinking about auditioning for a summer musical if my schedule allows!
Sears SHOULD be delivering our range around 5pm tonight (crossing my fingers they don’t come between 3:45 and 5 when we’ll be at the show). But I am not counting on it, and I expect it will be Monday before we have it – maybe even later since we both have to be out of the house on Monday.
I desperately need some feel-good exercise endorphins!!! A trip to the gym is planned for 10am.
I suspect I won’t have time to blog lunch until tonight because of the early show – see you then!
