Sour milk and sour grapes

I made Adam oatmeal this morning. It smelled SO good. I love the maple and brown sugar flavor. I put some milk on it to cool it down- he doesn't like thing too hot. I noticed somethng smelled off, but couldn't place it. Was it my nose? Am I hormonal? Definitely not pregnant. So, I give it too him, he starts to eat. Then the light bulb goes off in my head- is it the milk? I smell the carton- hmmmmmm, not too bad. I take a sip. OOOOOOOMMMMMMMGGGGGGGGGGG. It's on the verge of bad! **spit** GAG* GAG* GAG* spit**. I almost retched.

Adam got one spoonful in his mouth- hopefully not too much. I made him a new bowl and he was fine. But I cannot get the nasty taste- or the memory of it- out of my mouth. BLECH!!!!!!!!!!!!

So that's the sour milk part. Here is the sour grapes part. We enrolled Jason in the local Catholic school. Technically it is in the next county over, but it's closer than ours. So we're switching parishes. But, too make a a long story short, we will have to pay non-parishoner tuition for THREE YEARS. Holy cash cow! That's going to be tough. But we both want it, and believe it is very important to have Jason there.

((SIGH)). Guess I'm going to have to work more.

Sounds like your morning got off to a banner start. I hope the rest of your day went better. Tuition costs are sky high. We started looking into private school for Shelby and OUCH!

This post cracked me up - the same thing happened in our family over a carton of milk gone bad - it went bad only a day after its expiration son spit it out.

Our produce seems to be going bad sooner than it did before, and I bought a brand new syrup that was so badly fermented it tasted like whiskey.

I wonder if it has something to do with the state of our economy, cost of fuel, food transportation and vehicle refrigeration issues?

Been there done that, with both the milk and the Catholic school. All will be well, and we will never work enough, they keep spending our money. Hang in there.

A horrible way to begin a morning, I've been there!! Took a huge mouthful of tea & the milk was off. Couldn't smell it as I was blocked up at the time. The taste is worse than mould on bread, argh!!

I think it is disgraceful that you have to pay tution fees but at least he wil be where you know he wil have the best education & no price can be put on that.

I've had eye strain & not been blog hopping much so sorry I haven't stopped by in a while.
