I should be sleeping. I have been up since six o'clock p.m. yesterday. The problem is that during the night I managed to drink 2.5 pots of coffee. I am now wired. I have cleaned the kitchen, polished the counters, vacuumed the main room, changed all the bags in the trash baskets, cleaned the bathroom and several other chores. I am tired and I have laid down and tried to sleep. Not happening. So I will continue to clean until I crash. And then nothing will be able to wake me. Why do I do these things to myself? I don't need an enemy. I am my own enemy. Stupid, stupid me!

Addie, I've become convinced in my years that most of us are our own worst enemy, we don't need others! Left to ourselves, we'll self-destruct if we don't take care!!

I am on my way. Put the coffee pot on. Up all night last night also. I have my days and nights mixed up. But then I am not planning on going anywhere, so it doesn't really matter.

Actually, I did, thank you. I fell asleep at the computer. I woke up when my head hit the keyboard. So I went to bed and slept right through.

We buy french toast bread. It's pre-flavored with sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. SO then adds more stuff and makes french toast with it. Delicious. She cooks up a loaf at a time and freezes the cooked french toast in twos. Then we can just nuke it and add syrup.

Well, this morning I took out two slices and nuked them. Then I mixed some frozen blueberries with maple syrup and nuked that. Combined them and dug in. YUCCH!

She had made some low carb french toast with her lo carb bread and NO SUGAR. It really sucked so bad I didn't eat it. Now this is a two-pronged problem. First, I don't have the breakfast I wanted. Second, SO will be "miffed" that I ate her low carb bread.

  1. You were preparing it for her as a surprise breakfast.
  2. The cat, dog, bird or other pet ate it. while you weren't watching.
  3. You have no idea. You weren't home at the time.
I like her idea though of preparing it in advance. But doesn't the nuking make the bread soggy and tough? I have never found breaded items to do well in the zapper.

You have to be careful when microwaving breads. Go too long and it's ruined. Just the right time and it's soft and warm. After all, it's french toast, it gets covered by hot syrup before you eat it.
