I was so excited to have the chance to sleep in this morning. For the first time in a while I did not have one alarm set, I had the luxury of no set plans until noon, and Abbie was sleeping in my parent’s room, which meant they had the honor of letting her out in the morning.
I went to bed around 11:00 and fell right asleep. I woke up after a blissful night of sleep assuming I had slept and slept for well over 10 hours, I then rolled over to see the clock read 7:00. Damn. I rolled back over and closed my eyes and tried to go back to sleep, but it was no use. My body was already awake and there was nothing I could do to reverse that.
When did I stop being able to sleep in? Is that something we just grow out of? I don’t know what it is but I have no been able to sleep past 8:00am since who knows when. Oh well, at least I make the most of my day this way.
My Dad and I were looking forward to waffles this morning, that plan was quickly aborted when we discovered the waffle maker was broken and beyond repair. I wish I would have known about this a couple of days earlier, a new waffle iron would have made the perfect christmas present. Oh well, I’m sure my Dad will enjoy the flavor fettuchini noodles I got him just the same.
With no waffles, I went to plan B: Pancakes.
I made Whole Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes. I used Aunt Jemiah Whole Wheat Mix, but instead of egg or oil I substituted pumpkin and cinnamon.
I topped the pancakes with Cinnamon Apples & Real Maple Syrup. They were of course delicious, even though I’m sure the waffle version would have been that much better.
I have a few Christmas items to return this morning, I’m hoping the day after christmas rush has did down a bit. Then I am meeting Caitlin and Kathryn at the park for a little Post-Holiday Boot Camp Work Out. It should be another great day. 🙂
