It is time to crank this thing up! I am actually looking forward to posting again. I have to admit that I kind of missed it.
But I did enjoy my break. Not only did I take a break from blogging, but cooking as well. Yep, a whole month without cooking! We ate a LOT of cereal, popcorn, and deli sandwiches. The kids loved it. Chris complained very little and he lost a few pounds so I think he was cool with the whole deal.
I am dreading cooking again....why do I dread it so bad? To me, it is a colossal waste of time: think about what to cook...come up empty, so peruse allrecipes.com for 45min, make a list of needed ingredients, go buy them, unload the car, put them away, pull them out, cook, set the table, feed kids, eat dinner, clear the table, load the dishwasher, sweep the floor, pick up every last crumb so the army of ants doesn't invade us...(all the while wishing you were outside playing with the kids and their daddy). When you're finally done, and it is time to RELAX....Wouldn't you know it, you're hungry again, and now the dishwasher is ready to be unloaded!
Holy Cow, surely food should not take up this much of our day. I think I'm taking another month off cooking. Feel free to join me in a cooking strike if you would like...maybe we could make it a national month long holiday. :)
