*There's only one more episode of True Blood. After this Sunday I'm going to have to go elsewhere for my weekly dose of bloody, violent vampire sex. Or maybe I can just print and cut some True Blood paper dolls and play True Blood the home version.
*Last week I made a Wacky Cake, after seeing it mentioned over on Mandy's site. I love the idea of a cake without eggs and milk. I decided to not frost it, and just sprinkled some powdered sugar on top. The kids loved it and even fought over the last piece.Jay wasn't as thrilled. When I mentioned that it was a recipe from the Great Depression, when expensive ingredients were hard to come by, he said something about being able to taste the depression. Whatever.
*A lot of you have asked what I'll be doing with myself now that both kids are in school. And the answer is sadly, not much. The girl is only in half day kindergarten from 8:20 until 10:40. That doesn't give me much time. But I'm definitely making the most of it and I'll take what bit of alone time I can get.
*The woman that lives below us also has a kindergartner and she and I walked the kids to school together this morning. You all know that I'm a bit of a loner and a social freak so this was a huge step for me. I learned that she sews too, has been doing so on and off since she was a teenager, and right now she's in the middle of making Halloween costumes. I was so excited to learn this because now, at the very least, we'll always have something to talk about. Sometimes I think it's so much harder for women to make friends because the interests of women can be so varied. I mean, men can almost always find some common ground talking about sports, beer, and grilling.
*The downside to my new friendship is that I cannot remember her name. She mentioned it when I first moved in five months ago but I've forgotten. The last time her son was playing at our house I sort of casually asked what his moms name was and he told me, but I couldn't totally understand what he said. (Keep in mind, he's five.) Then he said, "But I just call her Mommy." Yeah, I don't think that will work for me.
