Oats, Jobs, and Not-tumors

We had some salmon for dinner, with rice, world’s best broccoli,


and salad. You know how I love my spinach.  With apples, cause I’m crazy like that


Seriously, if you haven’t done it, roast some broccoli.  I was going through a head a day by myself when I discovered this recipe.

We had full inentiosn of going to the gym after dinner.  And then I got an optical migraine.  AWESOME.

If you’re not lucky enough to get them, basically you get dark or blurry patches in your field of vision.  They come and go and sometimes there’s weird lines across your vision, and all sorts of fun stuff.

When I started getting them I was pretty sure I had a tumor.  Tumor is my general explanation for most things (cause seriously, what on earth else would make you have big blurry patches in ONE EYE.  Sounds like a tumor to me).  Sometime I’ll tell y’all about my face not-tumor.

Thankfully I have an eye doctor who I know can find tumors (seriously, he found our neighbor’s tumor before her oncologist did) and he assured me I am just getting migraines IN MY FRIGGIN EYE.  They don’t hurt but they’re disorienting, and I’m happier sitting still when I have them, and so we skipped the gym.

And made dessert. Cause, you know, gym skipping calls for that.


Don’t even pretend oat bran isn’t dessert.  Don’t even pretend.

With peanut butter and chocolate chips?  I’m pretty sure that’s dessert.

And I made kabocha oats today! With cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and a little bit of maple syrup.


I’m so amused by the color. Although it does remind me of baby food.  When I nannyed I’d always mix in a puree with the baby’s oats when I was getting him to try something new.   I should try this on the fiance.

And I’ve got a job interview in a few hours!  Eek.  I’m sick of these-I’ve got one tomorrow too.  So please, think warm fuzzies for me around 10:30 pacific today 🙂 This one isn’t for a teaching job, it’s with one of my two favorite non-profits.  (I will give you a gold star if you can guess either one-TWO if you can guess both)

And really, worst case scenario of these interviews is I keep staying home and making cookies.  Which, let’s be honest, isn’t that bad!

  4. Ha when I eat my Oats with Pumpkin, I always think it looks like baby food which might explain why I like it so much. I still eat baby food sometimes (sssshhhh)
