Thank you, oatmeal. Thank you, Amanda Bynes.

I am struggling through a difficult time right now. It is something I will write about when I am ready, but in the mean time, I am thankful for distractions.

One of which is Amanda Bynes. Seriously. What the heck is happening with her? I have to think it is a mental illness more than a substance abuse issue. Or maybe a combination of both. I mean, I feel bad for her…but since the story is still kind of new, I am enjoying a few of the random things she is doing. Like this one in spinning class.

The other is my morning oatmeal. I haven’t had it in a while, and it was nice to have it this morning. My husband has eggs every morning. I think in the seven years we’ve been together, I can count on both hands how many times he has had a breakfast that does not include eggs. So, imagine my surprise this morning when I was going to make oatmeal, and he said he wanted some, too. He enjoyed it. I waited until he was 2/3 of the way through to tell him there were chia and flax seed in the oatmeal. Muhahahahahah! I made this oatmeal. It’s Kath’s whipped banana oatmeal. Best oatmeal ever, especially if you are sensitive to the texture of oatmeal, which I am sometimes, even though I love it. Weird, I know. It’s important to follow her method exactly to get the fluffiness.

The other distraction that I couldn’t live without is a list of shows that I could watch on a 24 hour loop. Shows like…
Criminal Minds
48 hours on ID
I (Almost) Got Away with It
Women Behind Bars
Police Women of ________ County
Unusual Suspects
Who the (Bleep) Did I Marry

There are a few others…but you get the idea. I just love them, and I don’t know why. I find the narrator’s voice soothing and comforting to have in the background of my life.

Well, I am off to watch the end of this Dateline on ID.

I hope you all have a great Friday.
Beth WA

  1. Glad you are back (again). I am here for you, friend, but you know that! I will be trying Kath’s oat this week. You have inspired me.
