A better night

Monday, February 23, 2009

So last night at work was much better.  Still busy, but definitely less frustrating.  Probably because I already knew what I was getting into.  And also because one of my difficult patients was not my patient that night (the day nurses had switched them so that one nurse did not have a heavier load–I was so glad they did that–it makes it more fair, and more tolerable, and I was much less grumpy!)

This morning I attempted another bowl of oats, trying to find that perfect combination.  And I think I did a really good job.  I definitely (I’m using that word a lot in this post, aren’t I?) liked these better than the other two bowls.

NO PICTURE because I was just too tired and kind of forgot!  But in the bowl was:

1/2 cup old-fashioned oats (which I’m beginning to like the chewier texture more and more now)

1/2 cup whole milk

COOK for two minutes in microwave.

Then…

1/2 small box of raisins

1 spoonful of brown sugar

MIX together and let bowl SIT for approx. 5 minutes (those oats are really hot when they come out and the taste is not as good when you eat it immediately)

LASTLY…

1 spoon of White Chocolate Wonderful pb on top (remember how I said I really wasn’t a huge fan of this peanut butter on toast or by itself because it was dryer–well, it’s perfectly fine when it melts in your oats–very flavorful)

I really really enjoyed this bowl of oats and it satisfied my hunger.  In fact, I’ll probably have it again tomorrow.

Today was my first day off and as usual, I tend to feel a little discouraged that I don’t do too much.  Slept from about 9:30 till 1:15, got up to make lunch for Kimm and me.  Then back to bed from 2:30 till 6, made dinner for us.  Then reading and catching up on the blogs.

Tomorrow I hope to get a lot accomplished.

First and formost I need to call UMASS and inquire about a “final” notice I got that I owed close to $3,000 by March 13th.  I know this is in regards to the classes I took this fall, before I dropped out.  But first of all, I have never received any notification prior to this that the money was due, and secondly, I vaguely remember calling about this bill because it was originally placed on a school loan and when I dropped out I had called my loan place and asked about it and they said I didn’t owe anything.  So now I need to find that information somewhere in the clutter upstairs by my desk.  So I guess I will be organizing some paperwork, by necessity 🙂

Then I want to clean the bathrooms.

Organize my finances.

Try a new recipe.

Unpack some more stuff.

Tomorrow night we are probably (?) going to Target because we need to get a cordless drill to do some work on the house.  Also to look for blinds for the living room so our neighbors can’t look in anymore!

That’s all I can think of right now, but I’m sure if I can accomplish even HALF of that, I’ll be in good shape.

Hope everyone had a good start to the week.
