Oatmeal to the Rescue

Roxy cuddled me all night last night  :)  We were taking care of each other, I guess! She slept about half way up the bed right beside me so I had to curl my legs around her – it was pretty cute. She is not a fan of the eye drops, but she has to have them. I slept well, and my back/shoulders/neck are starting to feel better, but I woke up this morning with a killer headache again. I’m going to have some Nick-made coffee (yay!) and take one of my pills with breakfast so I can stop this thing in its tracks – I hope it doesn’t come back today since I’ll actually be at work all day today.

I really wanted a big bowl of oatmeal this morning, so that is what I made


  • 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt
  • 1 small apple, chopped and microwaved in bowl with some cinnamon BEFORE adding the oats
  • more cinnamon!
  • 3 Tbsp TJ’s Omega Trek Mix
  • 1 tsp real maple syrup


I love cooked apple in oatmeal – who knew? I’d never tried it until a few months ago, but it’s so easy and so good. This will definitely be on rotation in the fall.

Nick is making coffee as I type, so I should have an amazing cup o’ joe to take with me to work this morning.


Did you watch American Idol last night?

We kind of watched this season, but missed a lot, so I was okay with either one of them winning BUT did you see the entire awkward thing with “bikini girl” and the judge, Kara? That was strange.


  1. your oatmeal looks so big and satisfying and inviting, yum!

    i hope you get to the bottom of what’s up with roxy :-/

    good luck at work today. no headaches allowed!

  2. I’m not an oat girl myself but that bowl looks awesome!! I hope you and Roxy both have great days :)

  3. That oatmeal looks awesome! I love cooked apples with cinnamon :-)

    I love it when Arthur falls asleep on the bed. Hope Roxy’s feeling better today!

  4. Yummy bowl!

    No, I am not an idol fan. I heard that no one expected the winner to win, though!

  5. hahah that bikini number was hilarious. She was totally suprised!!!!!
    Love that omega trailmix. I have never put apple in my oats but that is a great idea!

  6. That oatmeal looks great. I need to try it with cooked apples, that sounds delicious! I hope you and Roxy keep hanging in there :)

  7. That is the best looking oatmeal I think I’ve ever seen, hehe! Apples/applesauce are so delicious in oatmeal and they give it the best smell.

  8. My favorite part of Idol was when “Norman” came on stage! Someone told me he’s going to be in a movie soon!

    Hope you are mending well!
