I woke up this morning feeling good after having a good night’s sleep. It is time for breakfast, I think I will have cornflakes and milk for breakfast. The cornflakes are a great way for me to start off my busy day. While eating my bowl of cereal, I remember that I also needed to make my sandwich before I get off for the day.
