This oatmeal recipe calls for cooking the oatmeal first, and a few steps but can be easily transformed into a super quick overnight recipe if you want/need it to be! See notes below. Otherwise, if you can keep watermelon around long enough without just, ahem, eating it, try out this watermelon and lime protein oatmeal parfait! It is clean depending on your protein powder of choice.
I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’ve been overwhelmed lately. There are so many new things to learn, figure out and do in multiple areas of my life. Luckily some of these things have been accomplished.
- I now have a new license, plates and tags. Now I just have to remember to get new tags in 2 years haha. My new license is good for 6 years though? Say what? I thought all licenses were only good for 4 years, but then again I’m probably biased because I’ve only ever gotten a license from one previous state.
I did finally get to change some things around on it that were not quite accurate for so many years, like my eye color. (My eye color changes, but much less frequently now.) When I first got my license I thought hazel was green/blue. WRONG. Haha. It’s more like green/brown but I have no brown whatsoever. So I fixed that. But no name changes for me like McLovin.
2. I am trained on one computer system in full and partly trained on another. I won’t be fully trained on the latter for a couple weeks. (Huge mess, ugh). But, hopefully this will be a good start for when I’m on call. I still have at least one more computer system to be trained on. (Seriously, having everyone have the same EMR/EHR (emergency medical/health records) system would make things so much easier. Even with all the training it still takes a while to actually figure out how to use it.
3. I can get back and forth to at least one of the parking garages I know of by work and back to my apartment without using any map! Actually, my nav and google maps were trying to take me through the city to get back EVEN THOUGH I could get to the garage via an expressway pretty quickly. I was all like:
So, I analyzed a map the old school way and figured it out on my own! Yay! I knew there had to be a way to get back via the expressway and not ALL through the city taking at least 15 minutes longer. HIGH FIVE. I also have now gotten back and forth this most efficient way (at least as far as I have come up with) without getting lost and without any navigation help to this one garage. Still not quite sure how to get to the other hospitals in terms of where to park (or at least for a couple where they even are lol), but I suppose (hope) I’ll figure that out soon enough.
Oh well, how about some food! Perhaps you still have watermelon leftover from the holiday weekend? Or, maybe you just bought one and want to use it in a recipe? Try out this watermelon and lime protein oatmeal parfait! Check out the notes section if you don’t want to cook anything!
How long do licenses last in your state?
Have you been lead astray by your navigation system of choice? Any stories out there?
