3 AM Wake Up Call

Someone (glares at cat) thought it would be a good idea to chase a bug around my bedroom at 3 am this morning, knocking things off my bedside table in the process, and waking me up. Not cool. Scared the crap out of me as well! As you can guess, I didn’t get the best sleep, and probably slept in a little later than planned this morning.

As I was running a little behind, I was faced with the breakfast dilemma – instant gratification via cold cereal, or go with the oats I had planned?

Oatmeal won out. Hey, what do I care if I’m a little late for work – I already quit!

  • 1/2 cup oats, milk, water
  • 1 banana, thinly sliced
  • splash of coconut extract
  • 1 tbsp flax seed
  • peanut butter
  • creamy coconut spread

Krista used the last of her creamy coconut spread recently, and it reminded me that I still had some in my fridge. As I’m on a mission to clean out as many jars of stuff as possible before I move, this obviously made the top of the list to use up first.

And you better believe it was served up with a glass of the MPP (yeah you know me!)

I even went back for seconds on the juice. So out of character, but what can I say, I was really feelin’ the juice this morning.

No riding to work for me today – I need to take a day off between rides, as my knees have been acting up. Plus Tuesdays & Thursdays are the days that the liquor store gets in there shipments. No, I’m not an alcoholic. Shipments = free boxes for packing!

Off to finish making lunch – later gators

    I had that SAME dilemma this morning–of course, oatmeal won, and I’m glad it did 🙂

    My cat does the craziest stuff that wakes me up in the middle of the night sometimes…think tearing up random paper around my room, ugh.

    wow I feel like I’ve missed so much!!! Sorry for the MIAness, but momma’s visiting and she’s always #1.

    You’ve definitely made me want oatmeal for breakfast tomorrow. It’s been so hot lately that I’ve just gone with simply, cold, mixed cereal. You know it! 😉

    I haven’t had oatmeal in far too long. Your mouthwatering picture has me craving it now!

    Sorry about the lack of sleep – darn kitties! Gotta love ’em though. And I’m sorry that I’m behind, but I gotta go back through and figure out more about this job/move change! Congrats? Good luck? I need to get the scoop 🙂

    My cats are insane like that too. That’s why they sleep in the downstairs bathroom (where they have slept since babies).
