You Can Put Your Boots in the Microwave, but it Doesn't Make Them Muffins.

Friday brought the first football game of the season. The high temperature was 104, the game was an hour and a half away, and the bus didn't have air conditioning. Cue my annual football-season-sinus-infection. With all the dust, bugs, bug spray, and exhaustion, my yearly junk returned much earlier than usual, but at least I have an extra day to recover. 

This one's particularly icky. Luckily, the sinus part isn't as bad as I'm used to, I just have a scratchy throat and stuffy nose. The worst part is that I feel super weak and tired all over. I've slept a LOT this weekend. Hopefully, I'll kick the majority of it by Tuesday, or I'll have it forever. 

So I feel poopy. Really poopy. What do I do to make myself feel better? This. I do this.

Mug brownies are like my main food group, so I wanted to try this one because it has peanut butter.

I didn't use any chocolate chips or any of the toppings because my pantry is a little on the empty side. Oh well. Overall, it was really pretty good, but *gasp* maybe a bit too chocolatey for me.

I did manage to make it to Walmart earlier for a teensy bit of couponing. I paid about .50 for two packs of colored pens, took $1 off some color catchers and stain spray, made .02 on whatever "BN Toddler" is, got free frozen peppers/onions, and price matched pork loin from $3.98 to $2.19, cantaloupe from $1.78 to .79, milk from $3.3something to $1.99, and Dunkin Donuts coffee from $7.5something to $5.99.Image

And now I'm worn out again so back to bed. Ugh. And in case you were wondering, the title is my sinus-drug-induced-rendition of a radio commercial from our area. "You can put your boots in the oven, but it doesn't make them biscuits." And I was absolutely certain I was correct.
