Maybe it’s because I’m getting old(er). Maybe it’s because I was never very good at multi-tasking. I’m not handling doing lots of things at once very well. Not at work, not at home, not combining work and home (where home = school and fitness and oh, right, grocery shopping and cleaning and playing with the dogs…). Something is always getting neglected. Which something changes day to day, except for grocery shopping. That gets neglected every day. Which means we’re eating SO much crap. Pop tarts for breakfast today, guys. I can’t remember the last time I even saw a pop tart. I went to CVS this morning to get more allergy medicine, needed something for breakfast, and grabbed a box of strawberry pop tarts. Yum, sure, but not good. Yeah, I could have picked up a box of nutri-grain bars or granola bars. Or those milk and cereal bars. Frankly, the milk and cereal bars both fascinate me and gross me out. They say they’re made with real milk, but who wants to eat cereal with solidified milk holding it together? It’s probably more like frosting, and frosting for breakfast doesn’t sound all that appealing either. Anyway, yes, I took the easy, junk-foody way out. And that was dumb. But it was quick. This morning, I’m trying to learn how to solve higher order homogeneous linear differential equations with constant coefficients (before I have to go to Baltimore for work) so I can finish my quiz on time.
