We're out of Cocoa Krispies....

I'm not even sure if that's how you spell the darn things, I just know we had 3 boxes (dude, they were on sale) and now we have none.

I'm not normally a sugary cereal person. I like grape nuts, and wheaties, and multi-grain cheerios, and oatmeal with just a bit of brown sugar.

But cocoa krispies are my one weakness, on the oh-so-rare occasion that I break out of my cereal habits. Especially since last week I banished all 'junk' from the house in an attempt to get back on track with my "diet". So cocoa krispies were my one splurge. And since I spent the day with a feverish 3 1/2 year old boy (over 102 at last check) I just wanted some sugar-laden cereal. *sigh*

On the upside, I spent most of the day snuggled on the couch with him, which ain't so bad! It did however, prevent me from doing anything of purpose. Cleaning...laundry...cleaning...eating a meal, ya know those pesky things.

The good news? Raisin Bran isn't so bad, the boy's fever seems to be under control for the time being (motrin + tylenol = good stuff) and feeling better. (of course, he feels JUST better enough to be feisty and a bit cranky....but I'll take cranky and demanding over the ashy feverish lump he was most of this afternoon)

So if you have chocolate, enjoy some in my name. I'm off to help the husband wrangle the now erupting tantrum in the kitchen. (who knew that he LIVES to feed the dog, and if you take that joy away from him, woah boy!)

Though I shouldn't.....the husband is the reason I'm out of cocoa bliss....evil man.
