72 hours. That's how much time I have to complete everything I need to for my asylum case. I haven't slept much because I am so scared and nervous about what is going to happen. I feel a bit sick to my stomach. In the midst of this, I ate a miniture box of Golden Grahams Cereal. Because my clients are young and don't eat oatmeal, I had bought them some assortments of other cereals to eat for breakfast. Because they can not take everything at once, and because they reject some food, I've had a pile of sugary cereals, granola bars, and the like sitting in my office for the last few weeks.

Today, at 4:30pm, after missing lunch, I turned to the pile and opened the box of Golden Grahams. My god is that cereal disgusting. Don't get me wrong - I was hungry so I ate it all. But good grief did it make me wonder about the state of our nation's cereals for kids. No wonder kids have cavities. That stuff is nasty. Like little sweet flavored chips of dried cardboard.

Yeah, those sound nasty.

Good luck for the next 48 (?) hours!
