I am so glad that english muffins with peanut butter have made an almost daily return to my diet because I just love them.
This combination was once my standard breakfast of choice for a good seven years straight with maybe a 1% failure rate every 365 days during that time period.
I forgot that I owned a cast-iron skillet. How does that happen? Like, one week I am not even putting it back in the cabinet because I am using it every single day and then suddenly, I put it away, forget all of the meals I was making it with it and never use it again.
Every time I change my sheets, I struggle to get them on the bed the right way. I am totally clueless as to which way to position them around the mattress and get it wrong the first time I try every single time. You would think that by now I would figure it out but alas, each week, it’s a battle.
Trader Joe’s stopped carrying my favorite onion rings in the frozen section months ago. I have less than one bag left in my freezer and refuse to eat them because I don’t want to run out of them but not eating them isn’t doing a thing for me either.
I broke out my jean jacket last week and I feel super cool wearing it. No one needs to know that it’s from the year 2000.
I clean out my closets on a routine basis but always hold on to certain things, even if I haven’t worn then in years, knowing, just knowing, they will come back in style.
I long for the day when my chunky Gucci loafers, circa 1999, are in style again. The three pairs in my closet, positioned next to the ugliest Prada boots on the planet (what was I thinking in 2001??) are certain their time will come once again.
Yet at the same time, I have a few handbags I want to sell. I still love them, they are classic and definitely trending but they remind me too much of the time period of my marriage.
Funny how I feel that the clothes and shoes can stick around but my purses, sort of like my jewelry, need to be refreshed.
When I stopped wearing my wedding rings after my divorce, a part of me stopped wanting to wear the rest of my jewelry too. It was a subconscious thing I think; I never take my earrings out, I always have a necklace on but bracelets? Other rings? An afterthought. I just don’t care like I did.
Or maybe it’s something else…I think that when I want to wear some of my favorite pieces, I realize they really aren’t my favorite anymore because they are tied to old memories which I am not interested in wearing around my wrist.
Those oatmeal raisin chocolate chip protein cookies that I mentioned in yesterday’s post? We finished them so quick that my son asked me to make another batch last night, right after I finished cleaning the kitchen and right before I was putting on my pajamas and calling it a night.
But he told me they were the best cookies I have ever made (aside from my original chocolate chip cookies) so how could I say no to that?
Recipe coming soon!

Have you ever eaten the EXACT SAME breakfast every day for a long time period?
How often do you clean out your closets? Do you hold on to certain things because you can’t part with them?
Am I the only one who can’t get the sheets on a king-sized bed in the right direction?
