I’m pretty sure I was fast asleep by 9:30 p.m. last night. When Ryan tapped me at 4:50 a.m. this morning asking me if I wanted to skip the gym in favor of sleeping in, I was stoked.
We woke up at 7 a.m. That’s 9 and a half hours of sleep. And I feel so much better this morning! We both do. Sometimes a little rest is what the body needs to bounce back to normal.
A little rest and a good breakfast!
No signs of a sore throat this morning!
I made scrambled eggs by first sautéing chopped onion, red and orange pepper and zucchini in a bit of olive oil before adding a mixture of three eggs, a splash of milk and cream cheese.
The cream cheese was a last-minute addition since we’re all out of shredded cheese and scrambled eggs without a hint of cheesy flavor just don’t do it for me.
The cream cheese melted perfectly and added a nice punch of flavor to the fluffy eggs.
I also had a lightly buttered half of a toasted bagel with raspberry jelly.
And a cup of coffee to get my mental mojo goin’.
Now I feel ready to tackle the day!
Yesterday Monica tweeted a link to an animated video of her “first car story” that I thought was so adorable. All of the things she talked about in her first car story reminded me of my first car and made me smile.
I think most people look back on their first car with a sense of nostalgia, even if it was a piece of crap. It was your first car, after all!
My first car was a teal 1994 Toyota Corolla and it was the jam.
It lasted me years and years, surviving a few accidents and fender benders.
Some fun facts:
- It would shake if it ever got above 70 miles per hour
- It was easy to pop the locks and was broken into in college… and my laptop was stolen during finals week
- The dashboard would shake and make a clicking sound sometimes, but a swift smack would make it stop every time
- The hubcaps randomly flew off on more than one occasion
- One time when I was driving it in a residential neighborhood, my high school boyfriend secretly slipped it into neutral and I couldn’t figure out why I couldn’t get it to go and started freaking out
- In college my friend Minda named it the “Teal Tortoise”
- My dad wouldn’t let me put any stickers or decals on it to “keep it looking nice”
I loved that car!
