Have you ever...

...realized that since you've been forced to take the last few weeks easy because of the surgery you had you've been able to get more accomplished during the day and still have time to chill out, maxing, and relax all cool and maybe even have time to shoot some b-ball outside of the school so you promise yourself that you won't let your schedule fill up so much anymore only to turn around and realize that you have something planned every day from Tuesday through Friday and you are so glad you only promised yourself and not the Hot Hubby so you didn't disappoint anyone by breaking a promise?

...set out to make a batch of cookies for your Hot Hubby who asked that you make them since he filled your flour bucket with the 25 pound bag of flour and then you decided to also make a batch of Just For Me Brownies because you just need some and you have people coming over almost every day this week who you think might need some to and when you pull the butter out to add half a cup to each recipe you marvel at how much butter you go through when you bake and figure that's probably the reason you don't bake much only to realize later, when you go to make two batches of corn bread, that you actually put one full cup in each of the previous recipes which may be why the brownies tasted so buttery rich and why the cookies just wouldn't set up right?

...had a moment when you realize that whether your Hot Hubby works nights or days, because it's just a stupid schedule no matter which side you're on, you'll still end up bearing a good portion of the domestic load which is the same load you've been bearing all along and two seconds ago it was light and easy and suddenly it's heavy and daunting and you wonder how things changed so drastically in two minutes and you frantically fight to go back to the weight of two minutes ago and then you remember that while some things remain the same other things change and the four of them won't always be this small and they won't always need you to do the brushing and dressing and nagging and reminding and plus... they won't always be this small?

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Hahaha, yes I have. Especially with the wrong amount of ingredients in recipes! (Like, just two nights ago...)
