Before 7:00 on Monday morning, I awoke to my Dad saying, “Time to wake up. I am heading to work.” With a sense of deja vu (my dad woke me up every day of high school), I unsteadily pulled myself to my feet and gave my dad a hug. “See you Friday.”
After doing some morning stretches so that my muscles would actually work, I put on a comfortable, warm outfit and went downstairs to the kitchen.
For a few days, my mind had been working on a recipe for Rice Krispie Treat Oatmeal. My experiment made a great breakfast (the recipe should be posted next week).
Despite the fact that we don’t have school this week, one of my professors assigned a discussion board Monday morning (and even sent an email to confirm that he did expect us to do it!). I read the prompt and wrote my response before starting a blog draft for the oatmeal recipe.
At 9:30, mom drove me to the airport. Due to the unusual amount of snacks in my bags, my bag was searched at the checkpoint. Nonetheless, I was at the gate long before I needed to be, and I started enjoying all of those snacks.
I edited a video for part of the first flight, but I get weird feelings in my head when I fly, so I ended up sleeping.
Between flights, I ate the Chic-fil-a wrap that mom bought me on the way to the airport.
After another flight, I met up with my brother, and my uncle drove us to our grandparents house…
…but they weren’t there! The plan was to surprise our grandparents, but it was such a surprise that they weren’t even home! We went out for pizza at a local place called Fricanos.
After pizza, we went back to Grandpa and Grandma’s house (they were there!) and talked for a while before bed.
