1. Flossing. I used to lie to my dentist when they asked if I flossed regularly. I felt like, "hey - I don't have any cavities so get off my back." A couple of weeks ago, I decided to give flossing a try, and now I have a pack of floss in my purse and use it at least once a day. Flossing is where it's at.
2. Oatmeal. You know all that stuff they say about fiber being good for you? Well, turns out they're right. Eat oatmeal every day for a week and you will see what I mean. But I'm too hip for boring ol' oats, so I use 1 part steel-cut (aka Irish oatmeal) to 4 parts Quaker old fashioned oats. Top with a little butter and brown sugar and you're good to go.
3. Front-closing bras. Let's face it: I have a large rack. My old bras just weren't cutting it anymore - I was constantly pulling up straps or resituating myself, if you know what I mean. So yesterday I went to Lane Bryant and got two of their front-closure racer-back bras. My back and breasts are thanking me today.
4. I received my 2006 National Poetry Month poster in the mail today. I am so psyched. I've sent away for them for the last 5 years and look forward to each year's arrival with great anticipation. So besides being Mr. Awesome's birthday today (Happy Birthday!) it's poetry Christmas for me.
