Ahhhhhh...It's Over.

This weekend. It's finally over! Hubby was gone on business all weekend (a first) and I had to work the 3-11 shift all weekend...which made for some piece mealing together of childcare...thank you to friends who pitched in and helped out!

But, here I sit. In my bed. Pooped as can be, awaiting my prince's return at some point tonight, and wishing I had NOTHING on my calendar for several days. Which is not the case.

However, right now. At this time. I have nothing to do but snuggle my girl, who just crawled in bed with me.

So, goodnight!



Five Question Friday! 9/28/12

Fer cryin' in the mud...I  tell you what. This "coping mechanism" of mine? The one in which, when I get stressed out, I just want to sleep? Yeah, it's sorta inconvenient.


It's like I'm a freakin' ostrich or something, and just wanna put my head in the sand until it's all over. Or, just cozy into a cave and sleep it away, like a bear in the winter. I wish I was one of those people who either 1. run for a stress reliever (running makes me more stressed out) or 2. cleaned like crazy when they get stressed. But no, Instead, I just want to pull the blankets over my head and sleep it away.

Anyway...enough gripin'! Let's get to the questions!

Thursday Night 5QF Sneak Peek!

Look!! It's before 10 o'clock and I'm getting the sneak peek up! Yay me! 



I'm looking ahead at a crazy busy weekend and kind of having a small pity party. You feel bad for me, right? I thought so.

Anyway, before I get distracted from this post, let's get to the questions this week!

Petri Dish

It was inevitable, right? With kids being steeped in the proverbial "petri dish" combination of oodles of kids in the close confines of school hallways and classrooms, that eventually, one of my kids was bound to get sick?

Right?

Exactly...and so, today, I have my Belle home with me and Baby Girl. She's been battling a sore throat, woke up today with a headache that progressed to barfiness.

I think the throwing up may have been related to an ibuprofen in an empty tummy...but, school policy says no attendance within 24 hours of puking. So, low and behold, she actually feels much better and BONUS!! I get an extra day with her!

We're watching a screening of a new movie (cute!) and still snuggled in bed in our jammies. Kind of a perfect day, in my opinion!


In the Kitchen with Gram...Angels and Berries!

Mmmmmmmm...I love me some angel food cake! This dessert is incredibly delicious and HOLY MOLY is it easy.
Be prepared to be amazed.
You'll need:

In addition to the berries (don't tell them, but we forgot to put them in the first photo...so we gave them their own separate photo, heaven forbid should they be left out.):


You'll need half an angel food cake. I suppose if you were more ambitious than we, you could crack open an angel food cake mix and actually bake the sucker yourself. And if, perhaps, you make your own angel food cake? Well, I don't want to speak to you. OVERACHIEVER.


Boil yourself some water.


Then, pretend like you're making jello, and pour some into the water, stir and stir and stir until it's all dissolved.

Now, here's the tricky part. You know how you add ice/cold water to jello? Well...we're gonna sub that part for some good ol' frozen berries. (I know my Gram is just DYING that we're using Good Value berries, aren't you, Gram? Un…

Funk.

In. A. Funk.

Must. Get. Out.

Please. Send. Help. (Preferably chocolate, shoes, or the latest and greatest gadget.)

G'night! Hopefully this funk will wear off by morning...if not? Well, there's always teaching "Theology of the Body" to a group of 15 year olds to look forward to tomorrow night. :-/

Nevermind.


Monday Mumblings

What a weekend! Party Friday, party Saturday, party Sunday...*yawn*...I'm pooped!

I "co-hosted" a shower for my SIL and soon to be arriving nephew Saturday and people? The baby stuff? I want another baby because OMG the baby gear has improved since my baby was a baby!

Let me show you...

Have you seen this?

Or these?

I die. The baby stuff makes me want another...I mean, look how comfy that little bed is! And that snuggle pod? No wrapping, to pulling, no velcro, just ziiiiiiip!! and snug as a bug, that baby is all swaddled.
There are geniuses in this world, people, and I am (unfortunately) not one of them.
Next on agenda: Invent latest and greatest baby gadget/gear/must have and retire to the mountains.
Or something.
And then, last night we had Belle's birthday party and as is tradition, she received a VERY special gift from my parents...



Friends, SHE'S GOIN' TO DISNEY WORLD!!!!!! (And I get to go too!! …

Five Question Friday! 9/21/12

Facing a busy weekend...and then, hopefully life gets back to its boring, leisurely pace! Today is a party at my BIL's, Saturday a shower for my lovely SIL and future nephew, and 
Sunday is Belle's birthday party!


Phew. Makes me tired just thinking of it!
Anyway, I wanna get to bed (it's currently 1:03 am), so no more small talk! Just the answers...

Thursday Night 5QF Sneak Peek!

Okay, so, technically it's Friday morning, and, I almost considered just skipping the "sneak peek" but I thought "what if someone in California is doing nothing but sitting around with nothing to do", so I decided to just go with it.


Here you go...(and THANK YOU!!!! For so many awesome question suggestions!)
