Costco run. It’s crazy to me how much we buy in BULK now. Every time I make a Costco run I am reminded of the fact that I now have a full on FAMILY to feed and take care of. Duh. But I still feel like a 16 year old so much of the time that sometimes this fact hits me over the head. Like it happened over night. Like I went to a sleep over at my friend Koni’s and we watched Dirty Dancing (because nobody puts baby in a corner) and we ate an entire pizza and stayed up late talking about the cute Senior who was flirting with me in school. Then we went to sleep and I woke up and was 34 and married to that cute Senior who was flirting with me in school and we have three kids. And we buy everything in bulk.
Cleaning out my purse and balancing my checkbook. Julie and Elizabeth (my “grand kids” as Ellie calls them) wanted to help.
Kenny took the girls camping at some cabins with a group of other dads/daughters. They had a blast stomping around in rain boots and roasting hot dogs by the fire. And while I didn’t enjoy the clean-up that followed their little weekend adventure, I did enjoy some peace and quiet in the house. I put Kole to bed early and a certain werewolf and vampire kept me company. :)
A few weeks ago I decided to try a new recipe. I made a chicken/chili soup. It took forever to chop everything up. Then I got ambitious and decided to also make banana bread/muffins at the same time. WHAT was I thinking!?
I got in over my head quickly and made a huge mess in my kitchen. Which always puts me in a bad mood. But the chicken dish did turn out pretty good. Kenny really liked it.
Have a beautiful Thursday everyone!
