There were cinnamon muffins at my place of work today. They were mini-muffins, with this perfectly crunchy cinnamon top. Something about them reminded me of when I was younger and I would go over to my grandmother’s house to spend the night. She would always make me cinnamon toast in the morning – white bread, butter, cinnamon and sugar, toasted to perfection in her tiny little toaster oven. I have never been able to replicate this toast. You would think it shouldn’t be that hard, right?
Well, apparently, Mimi’s cinnamon toast was magical because I cannot make it taste the same as hers to save my life.
Anyway, back to the mini-muffins. After I ate these, something inside me snapped. I needed cinnamon, and I needed it NOW! All I could think about was snickerdoodle cookies and Cinnamon Toast Crunch and apple cider with cinnamon…
Yeah, it was a little frightening.
So you know what happened when Rob and I went to the store after work? Yep, you guessed it. I got me a big ol’ box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. The breakfast of champions… mmmm.
Now, in the course of writing this post, I’ve realized how supremely lame it is. I have no excuse for my lameness, except to say this: I am roughly 3 1/2 weeks away from delivering this baby, and my brain is officially mush.
Yesterday I was leaving the voting polls and, instead of walking out the door like a normal person, I turned behind a whiteboard and ran smack into a wall. (But hey, I voted! Woot!)
I’ve also been calling students by the wrong names, occasionally forgetting where I am, and am incapable of accurately counting change.
(Plus there was a slightly terrifying incident today where I had a super intense dizzy spell… while driving home from work. Don’t worry, I did not have a wreck.)
(But I may not be driving again for a few days.)
Aside from the fact that Little Bit seems to be trying to MacGyver her way out of my belly using any means necessary (I swear she’s got 18 elbows and 23 feet), I’m doing pretty good. Tired, and apparently having some blood pressure issues, but good.
Oh, and in case you missed it, I’m giving away books. ARCs, actually. That means they haven’t come out yet. If you want to win one, by all means click here and enter the giveaway!
Y’all have a great rest of the week!
