My trip to the DMV yesterday was a success. In total, it took about 45 minutes to painlessly accomplish everything I needed to do. I was pretty efficient and had all of the documentation that I needed handy in a folder (like a giant geek).
What really helped though was that I decided to make the best of it while I was there. I chatted with the other people in line and sweet talked the older ladies in the office. Rather than standing there with a grimace on my face because I didn’t want to be there, I decided to put on a happy face and roll with it. It is amazing how much of a difference a positive attitude can make!
Don’t get me wrong though. It still stunk like poop to be there.
I was a little sore and lethargic yesterday, so I made myself a gigundo green smoothie. Later in the day, I had my new favorite snack.
A Power Bowl!
These consist of a mixture of fruit sprinkled with ground flaxseed (I prefer Spectrum Essentials Organic ) and cacao nibs (mentioned on my favorite things yesterday). The nutty taste of the flaxseed really takes a regular old bowl of fruit up a notch. Plus, it is loaded with fiber and essential fatty acids. Sometimes (if I’m feeling crazy), I also add goji berries.
It is a beautiful day in the neighborhood, so after I consume this monstrous bowl of Puffins, I am heading out to enjoy the weather.
I’m also taking my stepdaughter to see Gnomeo and Juliet later. Should be cute! Has anyone seen it?
