1) Sleeping through your alarm is not a good way to start your day,
particularly if it results in you missing the first twenty minutes of astronomy
2) If you are attempting (for the second time) to make healthy cheesecake
pancakes from ”I Breathe, I’m Hungry” (http://www.ibreatheimhungry.com/2012/01/cream-cheese-pancakes.html),
pay attention to your burners! The first time I tried this recipe, I

pie overnight oats today. Recipes come from Chocolate Covered Katie (http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/) and The
Oatmeal Artist (http://www.theoatmealartist.com/).
5) For some reason I thought it was a good idea to start a blog on the day of
craziness! I hope that turns out to be true!
