Oh, What a Beautiful Morning

If my ego is accurate, you're probably worried sick wondering, "Man, what I wouldn't give to know what the heck Abby is up to right now! I'd give all the puppies in the world to know!" Well, today is your lucky day, friend!

What I'm doing is simple: waiting for Peanut's laundry to dry (that kid has soaked his sheets for the LAST TIME, and by LAST TIME I mean NOWHERE NEAR THE LAST TIME), writing on my blog, and eating Cookie Crisp cereal.

I'd like to point out some things with that last one. First, I grew up eating Cheerios and that's it. If I was good (read: rarely) I could get a box of Apple Jacks. But Cheerios was usually all because that's what was healthy and darn it, that's what my mother wanted for us. And I swore I would do the same with my beautiful healthy children. Right up until last week when I took a gander at not just Cookie Crisp cereal in the cereal isle, but Cookie Crisp Sprinkles cereal! Oh yes. They make it. And it tastes like sugar cookies. I've never had the regular kind of Cookie Crisp, but I can't possibly comprehend how it can be any better than the Sprinkles variety.

Second, I had just finished eating an actual sugar cookie (thanks Holly!), contemplated its awesome power of sugarness, and thought I would care for another. However, not wishing to dizzy myself jiggling when I walk, I decided against it. Until I remembered that I had just fed PW her first bowl of Sprinkles Cookie Crisp that very morning and that I wouldn't mind "tasting" it in a very large cereal bowl with lots of milk.

Third, let me summarize this for you: I ate a sugar cookie at 10 in the morning. And then I chased it with a bowl of miniature sugar cookies drowning in milk.

Well, is your curiousity satisfied? I HOPE SO. You made me eat Sprinkles Cookie Crisp cereal to do it! Now apologize!!

OK.. OK... I'm sorry!! It was probably better than the carrot cake I ate at 10 this morning :)

I am eating miniature marshmallows at this very minute.

I was totally wondering what you were eating. I was wondering if you were doing laundry and if you had invented a leak proof diaper for massive urinaters. I was thinking about doing the dishes and wondering how you get people to bring you cookies.

Now I am very worn out from all that thinking and wondering and I better get to my housework.

I just finished eating a cookie. The cereal sounds yummy. My mom NEVER bought us sugary cereal growing up either, except once a year, on our birthdays, we got to pick out one box.

Commissary had Cookie Crisp cereal this week for like 89 cents a box. Stock up.

Ah, sugar. I think I'll go have a chocolate chunk cookie. (I know where Terence hid them.)

I cannot apologize. You have just made me very, very hungry. And I don't have anything sweet to eat. What am I gonna do??

It sounds like you had a great childhood growing up on Cheerios! That is the love of my life. No sugary cereals for me. But I sure make up for it with all the treats I eat. :)

I am at this very moment eating "Irish soda bread" which is another name for CAKE.

Sugar addiction is alive and well at my house.
