Crunch Time

Yes, I bought a box of Captain Crunch the other day. I know, it lacerates the inside of my mouth but I love it. The berries are the best. Didn't they manufacture a box with the berries only once? I wish they would do that again. I dig that stuff. I had to fight off Mackson for control of the box, and even though he had several bowls, I got what I needed from it. Namely love and comfort in the form of food.

I also have 12 days until everything is due, finals not included.

Note to Harold: I will need this Saturday and next Saturday to myself. Alone, no husband, no children. I need to spend some serious time with my computer, pumping out papers. I regret that it has come to this, and that I am a terrible time manager, but I know you will understand. Because, in exactly 23 days I will be walking down the aisle at the Marriott Center, wearing a black cap and gown, with a pretty tassel (of what color I am not sure), prancing along to get a piece of paper I have been striving to obtain for over 20 years. And despite the fact that I am about to gross out the other readers of this blog I need to tell you....I LOVE YOU! You have been the best husband, friend, supporter any girl could ever ask for. I know these past 9 months haven't been easy, but we are rounding the last corner of a 26.2 mile marathon, can you see the finish line? My body and mind hurt but are numb at the same time, I have soiled my clothes, my carb storage is depleted (work with me here), and I have sworn off any marathons in the future. But I can see you there, cheering, loving. You rock.

I LOVE Captain Crunch cereal also. Seriously, I could eat the whole box in one sitting but it does do major damage to the mouth. I think it's great that you express your love for your husband. He deserves it and you deserve him. Can you walk with Abbie, Scott and Dale or is there some order that you walk? I called dubs on holding Ella during the graduation. :) Good luck with your final preparations.

You must be so excited. With Justin working so hard to graduate I can really appreciate the weight that you will feel lifted from you when you walk down that aisle. YEAH!! Seriously, Captn. crunch is YUMMY! I've only had like two bowls since I've started my diet. But DANG it's good!

Just be the Little Engine that Could! I know you can, I know you can, I know you can..... Good Luck! I think after this is all over you should take Harold and the Kids to Disneyland to reward them for their love and patience!

Hey Jeanna it is okay. It is great when you have such great support, especially from the ones who count the most. Congrats! That is such an accomplishment and you deserve to bask in the moment for as long as you want.

I am reminded of the Crunch Berry "treats" that they served at the Morris Center/MTC. So good, but truly inspired by the devil. I think there is a direct correlation between the treats and the freshman fifteen. Yes, I ate my share of them.
