If you need cereal, and you live nearby, I've got lots. I bought 9 boxes in the past two days. Why? Great sale and coupons. Cereal is so expensive when it's full price. Have you tried Banana Nut Cheerios? Yum. Same with Cinnamon Pecan Special K. I also have lots of Kleenex. I'm ready for snow. Well, not really, but I hear it's coming. We have a 100% chance of snow Tuesday morning through night. I haven't heard about accumulation. This time I have lots of toilet paper and milk and cereal so I'll be fine, just fine. I have books and movies and ice cream. What more could I need? That's a rhetorical question, of course.

Rob and I watched A.I. Artificial Intelligence last night. Neither of us had seen it before. It was freaky and at least through the first half I was wishing we'd never started it. It was, after-all, an amazing movie. I read up on various summary plots afterward, which helped with understanding it. Rob was snuggled up under his L.L.Bean fleece throw. I was snuggled up under this:

Oh, I'm cracking myself up! I got the camouflage Snuggie for Hanukkah and this was the first time I used it. The promo on the box says, "Read, eat, use the remote, fish, talk on the phone or work on your laptop in complete comfort. You can also use it outside to keep you warm at sporting events!... Now has pockets!" What about watching TV while wearing it? It's huge, and very comfortable and I was amused by it all night.

It's 10 PM and Rob is about to start his 10 1/2 hour shift. He's working admissions at a renowned private alcohol and drug addiction treatment rehab center. It's on 147 acres on the Chesapeake Bay. It's an amazing place. If you're friends with me on Facebook, you could friend him and find out about the facility. Plus, he's a nice guy to be friends with. This is a really a great job for him (although the hours and days stink), in a field he's very much interested in.

It's been a long day for me, and I think it's time for bed. I'll be back tomorrow, probably writing from the hospital while my mom has her procedure. Think good thoughts, OK?

I'm so with you on the cereal!! I had 2 bowls of Cheerios for dinner. But at $5.69 a box, who can afford it?

Your snuggie is so hot & sexy!! How can Rob resist you?

Good thoughts, great prayers in your direction.

But the question is: will you wear it at sporting events? I dare you! Haha!
I've been scrolling through your blog. I love the pic of your kitchen! It is huge and bright, and my dream kitchen! I'll trade you a normal, blue Snuggie for it?

Fish? Seriously? Teeheehee....

I am thinking good thoughts. It will be fine. Hugs, friend. :)

Now that's my kind of cozy evening. The Snuggie is cool.

Cereal! Yum! If I had lots of cereal and a *camo snuggie, I'd be all set for a snowstorm too! The cinnamon pecan stuff sounds divine.

Sending good thoughts.

*Mine is pepto-bismol pink!

I do a lot of camping. I can see where a Snuggie would be an awesome thing to have around the campfire. Fishing....ummm... ..no. Otherwise it might be a great addition to down time.

My prayers are with you and your Mom. I pray everything goes well.

Blessings Cheryl.

I'm not crazy about cereal, it always leaves me feeling hungry.
I heard the snow isn't supposed to start until afternoon. I hope so because I have knitting and a lunch date tomorrow and can't go if it snows too early. My car is really bad in the snow!!
Your snuggie looks so nice warm. :-)

Cereal and a Snuggie seem like a good idea right now, especially since it's snowing! I hope your mom is doing well, too. :)

I'd love one of those, I'm often wrapped up in a blanket while watching tv and blogging. :-) Rob's new job sounds so interesting, I hope it works out well. They need awesome people in spots like that!

Welcome to the wonderful world of Snuggieville!

First time I saw an ad I thought you have to be kidding but as you know not only am I a convert and have two, I have been dubbed the Snuggie fairy as well. I will gift you with one of those in a heartbeat!

I cannot believe you've got the Snuggli!! :) (Or that you are such a cereal maven!)
