    Let me start out by saying how very sorry I am for not submitting an article for the last two Sundays. I thought I would be able to fit it all in, but it all just came and went too fast. We went to Cincinnati to be with my family for Christmas. It was a great time for us all. It is the only time I get to see some of my aunts and uncles, so I really enjoy going. We are all so busy with our own lives so it is nice to take time during the holidays to get together with the ones we don’t get to see year round.

  • Sometimes breakfast can get you into a rut. Most mornings, it’s an afterthought on the way out the door consisting of cereal, toast, oatmeal or something you can eat on the run.

    My morning rut is a bowl of the same kind of honey nut cereal every day of the week. Occasionally I change it up with toast but most mornings, breakfast is pretty boring and, honestly, kind of sad.

    Then there are the times you are running out of time for breakfast and get fast food on your way to work or eat a granola bar at your desk.
