Morning Ritual

As I've grown up, my mornings have always been really important to me. If I have a bad morning, chances are the rest of my day isn't going to go too well, either. As my routines change, so do my morning rituals. At school, for example, I would always try to wake up at least an hour and a half, or two hours before class so I could make myself breakfast, enjoy a cup of coffee, and take my time getting situated for the rest of the day.

Right now my morning weekday ritual involves the following:

Coffee, Oatmeal with peanut butter and granola, and today some blueberries. This is accompanied by a little book reading as I wait for my coworker friend Melina to arrive at my house for our daily carpool.

All the while, I must entertain these two creatures in order to prevent them from eating my breakfast if I need to walk away for a second. I am able to prevent this about 50% of the time.

ps. I hate that dog toy so much. It has these pointy bumps on it so Mickey tries to play tug of war with it and it hurts. And it weights like 5 pounds so he always drops it, and often he drops it on my foot. I avoid it at all costs, but it's also his favorite.


  1. oh goodness! i have a golden and she is my absolute favorite. These pictures actually look so much like her! Something about dogs eyes make me give them almost anything they want, if you know what i mean. =]

  2. yay! why hello there, new blog!! (yay for ny blogs!)

    the schnitzel i'm getting is from the schnitzel and things truck- they're usually in midtown, but follow their twitter for exact location-

  3. I hate that dog bone too, but it makes him so happy!
