What I ate Wednesday

Posted Dec 05 2012 5:43pm

Today’s breakfast did not go as planned; ah life!  I wanted to make a spinach and feta omelet with all the goodies.  The culprit behind instant oatmeal breakfast:  the boys locked my keys in the car last night.  I had to walk the them to school this morning.  Luckily we only live a mile from the school.

Chris and the boys loved these.  They really are super easy.  I also made a fruit salad and Homemade Refried Beans to go with it.

Meanwhile in adventures of the Jennings clan…

During Thanksgiving holidays the boys and I were getting a little restless.  I decided to take them on an 8-mile run/scooter ride through our State Park.  I ran they rode.  Just as we were turning around to head back home Chase runs into the back of my foot.  My foot comes to a complete stop and that is when gravity took over and I went down, super manning it across the pavement.  My knee and hand took the brunt of the fall. I have not taken a fall like that since grade school.  I was so embarrassed sitting in the middle of the road in complete shock as it is dawning on me, the car is 4 miles away!  I get up and everything seems to be within working order.  Of course I wanted the boys to think I was tough, so on we continued.  Although I did run the 4 miles back at a slower pace.
