Oh, boy….I’ve been dealing with taxes all morning – such a headache. How can it possibly be April 14th already?? Nothing like waiting until the last minute! I think we finally got it all sorted out. The husband and I like to make our taxes as complicated as possible by switching jobs, buying and selling houses, and owning our own business. Fun:)
Anyway, this morning I started off with a bowl of cereal – Shredded Wheat n Bran +Kashi, and by about 2 hours later I was starving. I have a very serious love for cereal, but it rarely keeps me full for long. Yesterday I was home in the morning for the first time in a while, and after taking a nice 4 mile run, I knew I needed something substantial for breakfast. I found some Van’s flax waffles in the fridge that we had brought over from our previous house, and I got so excited! Hadn’t had one of these in a long time, but they used to be one of my go-to breakfasts/snacks. I dressed it all up with some almond butter, sliced banana, chia seeds, and a drizzle of pure maple syrup. mmmm.
As my stomach rumbled one last time, I took a mouthwatering bite….
And it was hard as a rock. Seriously, I couldn’t even bite into it. Freezer burn I’m thinking? Guess it didn’t survive the move very well. I’m sure you can imagine my disappointment. Anyway, I just transferred the toppings + a new layer of almond butter over to an Ezekiel english muffin. Not quite the same, but it was okay. Lesson learned – check the frozen item before putting on your most expensive toppings…especially if said frozen item has been through a lot in its short life.
My morning began looking a up, however, when I decided to run through Panera to get an iced tea. I grabbed it to-go, got all settled in my car, and took off. About five minutes later, I glanced up for some unknown reason, and through my sunroof I could actually see my tea sitting on top of the car! Now tell me my little Mini isn’t a smooth ride, ha! I was just kind of amazed that it survived up there…so I took a picture of course. And by the way, our Mini is still for sale, so if anybody in the OKC area is looking for a fun little car with great gas mileage, look me up!
Anyway, newest update on our house is that we have shingles and electrical wiring – yay! Don’t worry, I won’t keep bombarding you with house talk every day. I think we’ll be waiting for inspections for awhile now, so we might not see much happen. We did have another appointment at the design center this morning, and we spent about 20 minutes picking out the door style that will go inside our house. It was ridiculous. It’s so fun picking everything out, but sometimes I feel like I would never even notice what type of doors we have on the inside, but because I have the opportunity to make the choice, I’m going to analyze it to the bitter end. And I’m still analyzing it. It happens with everything. Until suddenly it will hit me that no one (including me) really cares what the grooves look like on the doors inside our house – there are so many more important things I could spend my time thinking about. All about perspective friends:)
And now I’m off to grab some lunch and run some errands. This is probably the lamest post I’ve ever written, but I just wanted to drop in and say hi and also thank you for the sweet and encouraging comments on yesterday’s post. All the thoughtful words meant so much.
Hope you all have a great day! It’s almost Friday:)
