Cookie Spills and Books

I've just finished doing homework for the last seven, yes SEVEN, hours.  The worst part is that is was for ONE class that I have a midterm in next week.  UGH!  I did do the homework with Hannah and Marie and we had a few glitches and also decided to make it a pot luck study sesh so I can't blame it all on the Prof.  (But I can blame most of it!)

I'm feeling better today but still not 100%.  Hopefully either tomorrow or at least Friday by the time I'm heading back to The Mitten I'll feel great again.  This morning was another day at the hospital so I had my usual cream of wheat, banana and agave before I left.

PS. Last night after my post I was feeling insatiable and had to have a dessert bowl with vanilla yogurt and Puffins.  So good!  These mini bowls are the best way to minimize my portion sizes.

For lunch I had the same ole same ole but I couldn't finish my orange because I was too full!

Today was my off work out day but Marie and I did walk to the public library to check out some books (I love reading on the train, it makes my commute to the hospital fly by!)  I also grabbed the third Twilight book on cd to listen to on my way to Michigan.  I am not the biggest Twilight fan but they do keep me entertained.  (I'm a 100% Harry Potter fan...aka nerd!)
I made a pasta salad with whole wheat penne, tomatoes, green onions, peas, broccoli, cheese and a little bit of Italian dressing.  (Not enough actually.)  Hannah made a salad and Marie made an awesome Mexican dip.  Studying for hours on end is the worst but making it into a mini potluck definitely lifted our spirits.

We all had a MONSTER sweet tooth so I volunteered to make some homemade chocolate chip cookies (one of my study breaks.)  It was an epic fail, sort of.  I forgot to add the butter until the very end(duh!) so the batter looked/tasted funny (I am a professional chocolate chip cookie dough taster) so we decided to make it into a cookie cake.  When I smelled something burning I looked in the oven to discover it was spilling over everywhere!

The cookie didn't end up tasting too terrible but it was more like a cake than a cookie.  We indulged nonetheless.  I have the rest wrapped up to give to my fav maintenance man tomorrow because he'll eat anything and I'm not keeping it around my apartment!

Look, I already have my vitamins laid out for tomorrow, I must be off to eyelids are struggling to stay open.

Night bloggies!
