Notes From A Working Mother

October 1, 2011

Well guys, I did it. I made it through a whole week of work! I have so many things to say I don’t even know where to start. I guess with the fact that I am not, as feared, now incompetent at my job. I’m pleased to report that I remember how to do everything, and not only that but I am more awesome at it than before. This is obviously due to the fact that I was grossly pregnant for about a million years and I am no longer thus, meaning I have TONS of energy that I’m not used to having, and also my hands are no longer numb, well, two fingertips are and probably always will be,…

ah, saturday

January 16, 2010

Let me just tell you how much I loved today. A LOT. Any good day off starts with sleeping in, which I did. Then, after some lazing around, David and I decided to cash in on a Cracker Barrel gift card he got for his birthday. Although we’ve been trying to eat healthier this year, we give ourselves one meal a week where we eat what we want. This was DEFINITELY the meal. My love for breakfast food is deep and true, only surpassed by my love for dark chocolate, Blue Bell ice cream, and my Tempur Pedic mattress. And living beings, of course. Anyway, David and I basically ordered one of everything. Not pictured: the hash brown casserole, French…

The Day After

November 27, 2009

I woke up at 9:30 a.m. today, and that is approximately eleven hours of glorious sleep. The only reason I even left the bed was because my husband got up, and I couldn’t bear the cold room without his warm body next to me. I have mentioned that I have refused to turn the heat on in the house, right? But did I also say that my husband still insists on turning the fan on full blast at night? Waking up is a beast. So after a hot shower I promptly planted myself in our recliner by the fire, underneath a blanket, and commenced reading. Four days ago I realized that the library book I checked out for book club,…

Burning Questions

November 14, 2009

Y’all have been there for me in the past, so answer me these questions! 1. I need some new music. Suggestions? I like acoustic guitar and piano-based stuff, but not exclusively. Over the Rhine has become my all-time favorite band, but some of my other favorites are Nickel Creek and Sandra McCracken. Recently I’m really enjoying Katie Herzig. I need some new Christmas songs too, just not the cheesy ones that they play on the radio. 2. What are your favorite kitchen tools and gadgets? I’m still working on my Christmas list (even though it is super long already) and I want to know what I can’t live without. 3. What are your favorite iPhone apps? I’m especially looking for…

Breakfast Casserole

November 7, 2009

I’ve been craving a breakfast casserole all week long, because I’m high class like that. I decided to make one for our dinner exchange tonight, with a fruit salad side. I didn’t have a recipe, so I searched and searched. I ended up combining a few of the ones I found, and it turned out pretty well. Next time I’ll probably use less hash browns and sausage and more eggs. Ingredients: 1 (2-pound) bag frozen hash browns, thawed 1 pound pork sausage 2 slices cooked ham, diced 6 eggs 1/2 cup milk 1/2 teaspoon onion powder 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder salt and pepper to taste 12 ounces shredded cheddar cheese 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13×9…
