It’s really windy out there.
Like, really windy. I’m an absolute mess… Hair tossed, bangs uncombed, scarf flailing. Good thing I didn’t wear a skirt today. I tried calling home… It didn’t work though and I couldn’t hear a single thing. I hope whatever my mom had to say wasn’t important.
My car and I haven’t been getting along very well. He is rude and likes to misbehave. He doesn’t listen to me. He enjoys his bad smell, broken turn signals, and flat tires… And those are the good days.
Onto better things… Like snacking on granola bars. They were so quick to make that I’m still changing into my sports bra. Don’t look though. Rude
I nuked these bad boys on high for 30 seconds. I wanted to eat it, but decided to add oats instead. I think that only made matters worse. That’s how things go sometimes.
