Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies

I can't believe it's November. School is 1/4 done. Summer is only 3/4 of a school year away. Wow, 3/4 of a school year....sounds pretty far away when I put it like that. Well, since the first quarter of school is already over, guess what that means?!? Quarter finals and quarter grades!! *Gulp! I am totally not looking forward to that. At least these grades don't go on our transcripts...right?! But anyways, how about some cookies?

Sorry about the sudden transition from school to cookies. I just couldn't bear to write more about school! Ugh, just thinking about it makes my brain hurt! At least these cookies make it all better! They were sturdy, oat-y, and chocolate-y. Yum!
