Quaker Oatmeal Squares

Today's featured cereal is my sister's and my latest discovery. It sounds like a boring cereal, but let me tell you, the Golden Maple kind tastes like a combination of Golden Grahams PLUS Waffle Crisp. I think Julia and I finished that box in less than two days. It didn't have a prayer.

I was glad to have enough energy this morning to help my sister with some last-minute packing for Snowball, b
ut in the last four hours or so, palpitations have been really fast and painful. Just hanging out in bed, thinking about how when I was sick at school on my top bunk, I would count the little holes in the ceiling tiles, and then estimate how many total there were in our room and hallway and floor...because I am really weird.

My ceiling at home, luckily, doesn't have any holes in it, despite my efforts as a child to add more natural light. So instead I think about other totally thrilling things, like how I've never really grown out of my fascination with laundry chutes. It's like a built-in toy for your house!

"Bless this highly nutritious microwavable macaroni and cheese dinner and the people who sold it on sale. Amen."
