Hey all you out there. As you are probably aware already I went on a blogging world hiatus. I realized that despite my feeble attempts at being absolutely great at everything, I am a mere human and I can't do it all (although I will still try !!). Life has taken over and lots of stuff has been going on so I am taking a minute just to update you on a few of the little things consuming my time.
On a sad note I have not only been consumed with the joys in life but also loss. My family has had to endure another family death again. For the second time this year we had to say goodbye to a grandpa. Everything comes full circle and this past year has definitely shown us that!! Regardless of the sadness I know that I will see them again, until then!
Speaking of being a working mom, I will add that on my weekends I pretend I am a stay at home mom and don't leave the house. Nick does his gym thing and will run errands but I like to stay home fantasizing that he is working and I am taking care of the boys. I cook and bake cookies and all that crap. This past weekend I made a bomb chicken with enchilada sauce and cream cheese. I also made a chicken soup and baked chocolate chip cookies from scratch. I tried to emphasize to Nick the life he would be living if I was at home all day but he didn't bite the bait... whatevs!!! Sandwiches and random mis matched meals are hear to stay. If you don't know my husband let me just describe his eating habits to you. He is a garbage disposal. He eats an insane amount of food and will do it freakin fast. I don't know if you know about the family meal deal thing sold at Albertson's. Its a whole rotisserie chicken, 1 pound of macaroni salad, 1 pound of potato wedges, and 4 dinner rolls. Well, let's just say he buys it for himself. I get a bite hear or there (with permission of course, if I dare stick my hand in while he is eating he might just chew my hand off!) but he eats the rest!! He also can eat a random assortment of stuff that does not in any shape or form make a meal. Here is a random night menu for him:
appetizer: Protein shake (chocolate)
Main dishes: tuna from the can, 3 hard boiled eggs, left over meat if there is anything, brown rice, maybe a salad,
Dessert: Protein shake and oatmeal. heck he might throw in an iced coffee as well.
I could never eat like that. I might have thrown up after the protein shake though. Those things are nasty. He swears they are good.. I would rather starve then put that in my mouth YUCK! Since I have a refined palette I will let you taste the delicious meals I made by sharing the link to the recipes I used so you too can pretend to me a stay at home mom, or just have a great meal if you already are one.... you know who you are!!!
THESE and only these are the reasons why I am not blogging everyday... well that and what the heck do I write about everyday. I definitely don't wanna whine and moan and groan about the same things over and over. I also don't want to look like a crazy mom showing you my kids every five seconds even though I will probably do it anyway!! So I will attempt to at least have a weekly blog recapping the week and any new stuff that I do. Maybe this weekend I will leave the house and go somewhere with my little monkeys... or maybe I won't. Whatever the choice stay tuned for another post!!!
