Got my numbers wrong since I was going from memory. My total cholesterol is actually 260, not 250!

I'm sitting here eating a bowl of cheerios in 1% milk. My dad and sister made me load up on boxes of cheerios, 2 for $4 at Walgreen's tonight. I guess I'll add a bowl of cheerios a day to my list. I like cheerios but haven't been eating them often since the store brands are noticeably inferior and I prefer to buy store brands to save money. It's kind of weird going from a "save money at all costs" way of thinking [due to my former surplused condition] to a "avoid cholesterol at all costs" way of thinking.

You know what's annoying? If I buy more than a quart of milk, I end up throwing some out. But the store (well, Kroger at least) only sells quarts of whole (3.5%), 2%, and skim milk! I had to buy a half gallon. Fortunately my girlfriend will be visiting soon and will help me consume some, but it looks like I'll be throwing out 50 cents every time I buy milk now, at least until I can taper down to skim.

I'm still hungry. Hmm, I wonder if I can have another bowl of cheerios.

  • Hi David, I'm glad to see that you're alive and well, even if your cholesterol is too could drop an email once in a while, you know my address. It seems all the addresses I have from you are outdated.
    • Wow ... hey, good to hear from you. Didn't know you were watching here. :) Email should be the same as before; let me email you and see what happens.

  • Give powdered milk a try. We can't tell any difference in taste from the real thing, we can mix up as much or as little as we like at a time, and we don't feel bad about throwing it out since it's so inexpensive.
