First. Oatmeal. My arch nemesis since I was a little girl and just the sight of it nearly made me throw up. I remembered while we were at Costco on Saturday that I liked that packet oatmeal with the strawberries and marshmallows a few years back, and I needed something easy for breakfasts (and sometimes lunches) here at work. So we picked up a variety pack of instant oatmeal for me. 55 packets.
And spare me any lectures about how the "instant" oatmeal isn't nearly as good for you as the oats that you cook on the stove. It's better than Reese's Puffs.
Sadly the pack doesn't contain the strawberry one. But it has apples and cinnamon, maple and brown sugar, cinnamon roll, and regular. Probably never gonna eat the regular. Ick. Even adding your own sugar to the regular one doesn't make it good.
I had the Maple & Brown Sugar one for breakfast this morning--and I LIKED IT!! Miraculous. I think the gods must be smiling on me and my crazy eating habits because I want to do well in the family fitness challenge this summer, so the gods are letting me not choke and gag over the thought of oatmeal. And I had an apple. And I took my Lifepak Nano vitamins. (Which I would NEVER pay over $150 per month for even though I've gotta admit--they make me feel really great and energized--but someone Jeremy works with gave him a full month supply of the vitamin packs--Jeremy's always getting presents for doing his job--a golf club here, a football team issue hat there, a shirt here, $20 there, expensive vitamins here, etc...) And I had a bottle of water. And we're running tonight. I feel amazing.
Now. On to the reason(s) why I've been MIA for the past week.
1. It was my anniversary this week so there was a lot of celebrating going on.
2. I sold 7 paintings this week between my grandfather's shop and my shop, so I've been busy with orders.
3. I'm getting ready to take my grandpa to the Ogden Arts Festival this weekend, which is a ton of work.
4. I've had nothing to say.
So, there you go.

And Jeremy got me these from the beside on Etsy for our anniversary:
And. I lost half of my Nike + iPod thing. The receiver is in my shoe, but the little dongle that you plug into your iPod--totally fell out of my purse at some unknown location. So I have to buy a new one this week.
Also, new prints are available on Art By Jay! Only $20! And the ACEOs are still only $7!
