Its the Simple Things in Life

I couldn't sleep tonight, big surprise right? In response to your question mom, I don't use that stuff on Sunday and Tuesday nights for fear I will over sleep and miss my 11 AM class. Clearly sleep and I need to work on our relationship...
At about 11:52 PM I realized I was dreadfully hungry. My predicament? Our microwave is broken, so my oatmeal and hot cocoa diet has been severely lacking. I currently have no cereal and no bread, and so, there was nothing for it. I made a pizza on Monday, but I didn't want that either. So I decided to make my hot cocoa and oatmeal on the stovetop.
First the cocoa. I have to admit, although I am taking a cooking class, in which we discussed the proper use of measuring cups, I am still anti measuring in some cases, so I didn't pour in enough milk, causing my cocoa to be super chocolate-y. Due to the fact that I purposely put in less sugar than the recipe calls, it was a half a mug of dark chocolate heaven, pleasing to my poor palate which hasn't enjoyed it's night cap in about a week.
Then the oatmeal. Since I didn't want to dirty two pans I just used the same one, and since its late and I'm tired, I didn't wash it. So, my oatmeal had a cocoa flavor, it was probably the best oatmeal I've eaten in a long time. In the end I was grateful that I had opted for the stove top. It takes longer yes, but the result: pure happiness.

Is your BYU-h class still on your Blackboard? Cuz all my BYU-H classes still are and they are also on there twice. I don't know what to do but it kind of annoys me.

Have you seen those posters for the Bookstore Progressive Sale that have Bro. McMurtrey on them??

Sorry I am leaving comments that are completely unrelated to the post.
I feel I should make an attempt . . . I have not been eating as much oatmeal lately. I suppose that after about three years of eating it mostly everyday with few exceptions finally took its toll and made me a little sick of it.
