First things first... Happy December
Now onto my day. This is how it went:
I woke up this morning feeling a little homesick. I'm thinking it's because I am anticipating our trip home for the holidays and so I'm thinking about it too much. The truth is, I am really loving the beginning of winter here. Anyway, so when I get homesick, I tend to make something to eat that my mom likes. This morning it was oatmeal. As I was reading the instructions on the oatmeal cylinder, it occurred to me that the suggested way to make it would be really mushy and gross. So, let me tell you how to make light and fluffy oatmeal. You use equal parts old fashioned oats (not quick oats) and water. Boil the water, then add the oats. Give it a quick stir, then cover and leave it alone for 5 minutes or so. Then, put it in a bowl and fluff it while mixing in some honey. Then pour ice cold milk over it and enjoy!
Yummy oatmeal for a cold winter morning.
And don't you love the red nails? Me too.
The rest of my day consisted of cleaning Israel's room and the usual email checking, blog stalking and so on. But cleaning Israel's room was quite the ordeal. Granted, it's mostly my fault for letting it get to that point, but factor in a 3 year-old and a two month-old who cries any time he can't see me and you get a real challenge. I did get it done, but by 5 o'clock I was still in jammies. So, I ran downstairs and got ready quickly so I could welcome home Randal in the way that only a skirt an red lipstick can (in the hopes that he wouldn't notice the dishes still in the sink from last night).
