We’ve got a wide-open day for getting things done – the best kind of Saturday! Here’s the to-do list all set up on the fridge board:
I’ve been chugging along at things that aren’t even on the list (cleaned out our bookshelves and am taking 2 huge bags to donate). Giving away books and clothes makes me tear up – I feel so sad parting with things even if I’ll never read/wear them again. In the process, we found 3 old textbooks and are sending them in to Bookbyte.com for $70!! They give you a free shipping label, so it’s quite an awesome deal.
I felt gross this morning after too much alcohol last night. I probably only had 2 beers, but my body just hates alcohol. And then I had my other evil drink: coffee. Now I feel so sick and nauseous. I HAVE TO GIVE IT UP!! I don’t really even enjoy it anymore. I feel sick when I drink it and feel sick if I do drink it regularly and don’t drink it. I just need to stick to tea.
I did have a good bowl of oats this morning – with PB LaraBar whipped in!! I’ve been meaning to try this for a long time and after seeing Rose do this the other day with Banana Cookie, I decided to try it.
The verdict? I couldn’t taste it! I used half a LB for 2 servings of oats, so that might have been too light (although Rose used 1/4 for her bowl and said it was too sweet). Another problem might have been that we were out of bananas, so it was just plain oats.
- 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup 1% milk, 1/3 cup oats
- 2 tbsp raisins
- 1/4 PB LaraBar
- 2 tbsp grainberries
- Some TJ’s Nuts Over Raspberries Trail Mix
- Spoonful PB
The husband made cappuccinos with hazelnut coffee and frothed milk. It was still too much caffeine! I am shaking all over.
I finished Barefoot this morning – great book!!! Now I’m starting one the husband just read that he thinks I’ll like a lot. I hope I can find the time to read with all this studying!
I’m mowing the lawn for exercise today and might take a walk later, but I think I’ll take a day off from the dark gym.
Chores, chores, chores!
