Well, the good news is that I have a really good blender -- yippee! The bad news is that I just blended the rubber stopper thing from the blender lid into our peanut butter, yogurt, spinach breakfast smoothie this morning. I didn't even notice! First, I thought it seemed to be having a harder time than usual to blend up the ice and even recalled for a moment the amusing story my friend Julie told me about blending up her little plastic stopper -- hilarious! Then I idly wondered where my stopper was and bent down into the cupboard and did the thorough yet efficient hand sweep in the dark thing. Next, I lovingly poured the jewel green nutritious deliciousness into everyone's glasses and demanded that they drink it all up or else! I drank a little and noted absently that the flax seeds I had added seemed especially tenacious. Wait a minute, that's not a flax seed, that is plastic. Oh ~~ the lightbulb illuminates above my head ~~ that's where the stopper went. I hurriedly yanked everyone's glasses out of their hands, scooped out the black plastic chunks, mournfully poured the rest of the "breakfast that actually wasn't cold cereal" down the drain, and got out the bowls with resignation.
In other morning news, Charles woke up at 5:38 which happens to be exactly two minutes before we leave for seminary -- and we were still on time!!! I was looking all over for him in the basement, then was going to check if he was still in bed when I ran into him groggily making his way down the stairs. After a promise that we could run back home before school, he put on his shoes and walked out the door. Amazing.
Phin has a little cold, didn't sleep at all well, and is wiping snot on the couch at the moment. Oh, now he has fallen asleep and looks super sweet.
How is your day going so far?
