I’m trying very hard to not be ill and praying I can win the battle. I sipped hot water with honey & lemon this afternoon and then took an Airborne this evening. I can’t afford to be sick — there is too much to do!
We’ve got church in the morning, then I have to drive to Costco to pick up the chocolate cake w/chocolate mousse filling and chocolate buttercream frosting. (I will say the kid has good tastes!) I’m not thrilled about making that drive for the 3rd time in one week, but I sure am glad the cake is ordered and I don’t have to try to make one again tonight. (I made a triple chocolate cake last night, which is already half-gone.) The party begins at 2pm tomorrow at the roller skate rink (which is in a 100-year-old building). I’m still trying to figure out what to feed the kids… I might be giving Costco an extra economic boost, because I am tired. And then I have to feed the older teenagers at church after that — and I don’t really know what I’m going to feed them, either!
Anyone wonder why I have trouble losing weight? It’s because I have to think about FOOD all the time.
It’s not that I normally worry about feeding teens other than my own — it’s simply my turn. I signed up for this date months ago, not realizing that my introvert son H-J would choose to have a birthday party. Such is life.
The good news is we are having some really cold weather (I think the high tomorrow will have a “real feel” of 17 F) so I can leave whatever I need to in the car and it won’t spoil. H-J’s party is from 2-5pm and the high school youth meet from 5-7pm. Yes, there is a bit of a time overlap problem going on here.
SuperDad put up some outside lights today, because that is what you do when it is early December and 25 F outside! This did mean that I had to remove all of the fall decor… he decided that pumpkins would look a little bit peculiar with Christmas lights.
He’s probably right.
