In an effort to make my large ass a little less large I have been eating oatmeal. Lots....of oatmeal. I usually begin my day with a bowl of it.

I have discovered that I like it better made with milk as opposed to water. It takes 1 minute, 30 seconds in my beautiful microwave. When it comes out it is still all nice and smooth and full of oat-y deliciousness.
My most recent daily routine requires that I watch ER reruns while reading blogs and thinking of ways to spend My Dear Nathan's hard earned money before he hardly earned it. Don't worry, I feed Ryleigh her morning staple of peanut butter toast before I start all my hard work.
I am thinking, as I eat my "oatmeal" that I need to revise my routine to include eating my oatmeal before I begin ER and/or blog reading. By the time I begin to eat it the oat-y deliciousness has turned into a sticky, oat-y facial peel. I still eat it but it is no longer smooth, it is more....lumpy. The taste is still OK as far as diet oatmeal goes.
Once I am finished my bowl, I have learned the hard way, it must be rinsed out immediately. If it is not, it moves from facial peel-ish to cement-ish. I never knew that oatmeal was such a transitional food, I always just used to think that it sucked.
