I have been quite the busy bee this whole week. I suppose when you return to being the only woman of the house, that happens!
Cooking is all me again ... which hasn't been so bad this week. I told dh though by next week I'll be sick of it. Sad but true! I haven't had to cook dinner (except 3 times I think) since April/Mayish? And I wasn't even cooking too much when grannie came home from Florida since dh was doing most of it as I was busy with the baby. So I really haven't truely cooked on a regular basis probably since April'05. That's when dh took over when the morning sickness made me puke 2,515 times a day - then grannie came home, then she left and a week later I had a baby and then dh mostly did the cooking until grannie came home again and cooked!
I will admit, right now I am enjoying the cooking. This week I've pulled out 2 of my old favorites and tonight tried something new that I've been wanting to try for about a year now! [The bummer was that it wasn't really that good, but at least it wasn't bad!]. I have the entire menu for a month planned and it is full of old favorites, some other new ones I have been wanting to try and I even will attempt one of the favorite things grannie makes!
I have also been reorganizing, cleaning, decorating, schooling, listing a few items on e-bay and trying to train a a baby to go to sleep this week. I even managed to make it to the Y today which felt wonderful to work out (but I admit towards the end I wasn't sure if I could make it to the end, but I did YEAH!)
It's been a good week so far. Tomorrow I have a moms club board meeting in the am, and a friend coming over in the afternoon, sometime there I need to get to the library, and we are slated to get a kind of big snow storm ... at least 6 inches. Of course the predictions are changing every 10 minutes so we'll see if that pans out.
I'm thinking the library trip should be in the am though, just in case the snow hits - the kids and I can stay home and we'll have plenty of books to keep us busy!
But now, well now I am off to watch Oprah on rerun and sit and knit for a bit. I haven't had a chance to just sit and relax at all this week - too much to do and not enough time to do it all ... so since I have successfully put baby to bed, I am going to steal a few moments all for me!
