My Day So Far

Woke up and ate delicious Honey Bunches of Oats with skim milk, or skimmed milk as they say in the UK.

Actually got some work done without procastinating, then let Mark the plumber back into our house for another $90.90 worth of work and a good solid scolding at our hose situation, which had nothing to do with the leaking hot water heater he came to fix. Also learned that we are at most 2 years away from replacing the damn thing.

Ate some soup for lunch and became so engrossed in the soup that I attempted to suck every last drop from the bowl. Dumped half the broth on my cashmere sweater as I tipped it to get my tongue in there further. Had to go teach class smelling of garlic and oregano...

Slipped and fell on the ice on the driveway. I didn't see it because it was covered in...snow! We got more snow today. Here is a screen shot of the weather forecast for the rest of the week:
Note the precipitation predicted for...well all week except Friday. Heck, by then we're going above freezing. I'm not sure what I'll do with myself. Maybe run around outside in just maternity pants? As in without the requisite long johns beneath them?

Discovered that my pregnant belly makes it uncomfortable to lie down with the laptop upon my gut. This is both exciting and frustrating simultaneously.

Now, I must make myself wait the final 2 hours until my extended clan arrives via train. Nothing like visiting family to make me not upset about the weather or the soupy sweater or even my sore bum. Hurrah! A positive that cancels out all other existing negatives! This will then be, in hindsight, a good day.

I had honey bunches of oats this morning for breakfast too! But I don't/can't/won't eat milk, so I just like it dry. But I like to pretend I'm a normal human being so I pour it into a bowl and eat it with a spoon. So I'm sitting in a meeting with my coworkers really early in the morning crunching on my cereal and one of them turns to me and says "are you eating dry cereal in a bowl WITH A SPOON?!". I said "yeah -- I can't have milk but I like to pretend I'm normal". Everyone laughed. Pretty normal start to the day now that I think about it...

Jordan, what about soymilk? Mmmmm...I love it on cereal.

Now I will probably go buy myself a box of Honey Bunches of Oats since you have me thinking about it!! I bet it will go well with my Fage yogurt too.
