What a week. Not only did Thursday's carbo loading leave me sluggish and with jeans fitting a wee bit tighter than I would care to admit, but I still feel like I'm playing catch up---trying to get all the things done that I've neglected this week. There have been numerous times I wanted to sit down at the computer and type a few thoughts, but either I was busy doing other things, or there was just too much happy household chit chat to form anything even slightly resembling a coherent thought. So now I have all these little bits and pieces floating about that don't seem to go together, yet they must be expelled from my brain.
*Earlier in the week our neighbors to the left brought over some banana cake. It was delicious.I had never had banana cake before. It was similar in taste to banana bread, yet with a fluffy cake like texture. I totally need to get the recipe for this. Also, I love how my neighbors have taken to the idea of passing food around. I need to think of something else to share now.
*Did anyone else watch the 24 movie last Sunday? Did anyone else almost have a stress induced heart attack? Jeez, that show wears me out, I don't know why I watch it. Oh wait.....yes, I do---It's because Kiefer Sutherland is really, really, really nice to look at. It has been far too long, Jack Bauer. Far too long indeed. *The girl and I spent Wednesday making chocolate bottom pumpkin pies. Here is what remains:
It's taking all the self control I have to not shove it in my face.
*I made my own laundry detergent this morning using a recipe found via Simple, Green, Frugal, Co-op. I'm now feeling very self-sufficient.
*My dad took my son to Busch Gardens for the weekend. I miss him already. It just seems as if he hasn't been home enough lately. Plus, even though my dad treats my kids way better than he ever treated me, I still feel some anxiety when he takes them.
*The story about the Wal-Mart employee getting trampled to death is incredibly disturbing. What is wrong with people?
