This morning around 4AM I woke up sweating from a bad dream. What I remember is that I was driving in a car [with no passengers] and was stopped at an intersection. After looking both ways and didn’t see anyone coming, I proceeded to cross. All of a sudden, I looked to my left and there was a car coming. It plowed into the backside of my car and my car started spinning out of control. I immediately woke up, shot up in bed, and couldn’t get back to sleep.
I’m guessing that dream stemmed from the worries I’m having about Ryan’s surgery this afternoon. I know that it’s on his ankle and they’re not going anywhere near any vital organs, but there is always risk involved in surgery and I don’t like that. I don’t like when things are out of my control [i.e. spinning out of control] and welp, surgery is certainly out of my control.

I’m beginning to think that hospital visits are becoming a holiday tradition in our family. Last year Ryan had an appendicitis and this year it’s his ankle. Next year I told him it’s my turn but for happier reasons- hellooo parenthood. Read: I am KIDDING! Absolutely and totally JOKING! Just trying to lighten ze mood! Sorry momma and Ryan if I caused you a slight, momentary scare That’s still a few years away.
Moving onto yummier thoughts, What I Ate Wednesday [WIAW]. I’ve been feeling snacky and loving cranberries + walnuts lately…
shopping for Thanksgiving fixin’s at TJ’s but got a little sidetracked
veggie-filled salad topped with an egg & a bagel with PB + apple butter
always gotta end the day on a sweet note *holy cranberry, these. cookies. are. awesome!*
Ryan’s surgery isn’t until this afternoon so we’re about to head out to Target for some retail therapy. I’m planning to pack a lunch and bring my computer for some blog reading while his ankle is getting all fixed up. I hope all y’all traveling today stay safe and out of traffic!
Question: What’s your favorite holiday combo? I was all about pumpkin this fall but chocolate + peppermint and cranberries + walnuts are tasting mighty fine nowadays!
Question: When you’re stressed or worried, do you get bad dreams?
