This morning I wanted to throw a temper tantrum and burrow deep into the covers. I want to have a snow day like the East Coast. I want to be able to look outside and see the thick white coat of snow and now I could spend the whole day in pajamas. I want an oompa loompa now Daddy!
Of course, the next day I’d like all the snow to disappear and have the Arizona weather back. I suppose I’m just jealous that we don’t get snow days. We don’t even get excessive heat days. Must start campaigning for that.
Instead of the temper tantrum, I got up and prepared myself for work. Still hacking up a lung, and my cough seems to be getting worse. Its mostly in the mornings and the evenings, but it makes me sound like an old man.
I made myself oatmeal in a mug this morning, but I need to work on the execution a bit more. I think my liquid to oats ratio needs to be jimmied with a bit more and I’ve now learned brown sugar is key. I powered my way through the thick, unsweetened oats mixed with slivered almonds and craisins, even though it got cold sitting at my desk. Must make earlier so I have time to eat it at home.
Alright kids, bring it in. Let’s make this day a good one! On three….
