Ohhh gosh…

Today started with a hearty, hearty laugh. My mom and I were on our morning walk, having a great time, enjoying the weather when suddenly, behind this giant bush something dashes out aiming for my legs. My instincts kicked in and I let out a little “ah!” and jumped slightly. At the same time my mom stops, stares at the situation for like 5 seconds and just screeeeeeeeeams at the top of her lungs, bloody – hear her five cities over – murder. Ummm…it was a tiny kitten that proceeded to roll over and want to play!! My mom literally WIGGED out and I could not stop laughing. I lauged so hard I could barely finish our walk. I’m laughing as I’m typing right now. It was just such a huge reaction to such a tiny little kitten, I’ve literally never witnessed anything like it in my life. It was so.freaking.funny. Good times with mom :)

I was planning a tropical paradise oatmeal breakfast with toasted coconut, toasted almonds, a banana and some dried apricots – but the tropical breeze flew out of my sails when I realized I lost my shrededed coconut! Yes, I lost it – as in, I don’t know where it went! How does that happen? Anyways, I continued on with just “paradise” oatmeal, sans the tropical coconut part, and it was a true delight. I didn’t mix the banana in with the oatmeal while it was cooking today, and it made for a HUGE voluminous breakfast – I dig that. I literally almost couldn’t finish it! The dried apricots were also key – they added a sweet, chewy burst of goodness – awesome!

It looks delish, and I can’t wait to dig in :) I also packed a blueberry buckle yogurt – yum! Did you know there’s no such thing as naturally occuring blue food? (blueberries are purple!) It’s true!

We’re hitting the 80’s today people! I’m psyched!

In other news, my washer is broken and I have to get a repair man out – BUMMER!!!!!

Question: Have you ever been scared out of your wits and have it turn out to be over nothing?
