Motherhood is not for weenies

If you think . . . .

you are a reasonably likeable person, with an adequate level of skills and talents. 

you have attracted some great people into your life because you are a good friend and enjoyable company.

you are logical and mature about life's problems, and have a good sense of what's worth a fight and what isn't.

you have reached a level of self-comfort and self-confidence in your place in the world

Then go ahead and raise some teenagers, because they'll let you know in no uncertain terms that you are completely wrong.

Cookie Day 2014

Cookie Day today!

Making my Mocha Chewies, Peppermint Kisses, some rolled cinnamon bun cookies I found online, and cream cheese Spritz cookies - if I can find my cookie press that is.  It's not as much fun without MG - but schedules didn't align this year.

Not really feeling it this year - probably because I'm still suffering the effects of influenza a week later!  Nasty nasty bug going around and it just sucks all the energy right out of it's victim.  Like hanging around with Dick Cheney on your birthday.

The NY Italians are coming so I'll be feeding 13 adults in the world's smallest kitchen.  Shouldn't complain.  My Grandma fed 7 kids and a hard working husband with no indoor plumbing, a wood stove, and barely any money.  But she didn't work 30 minutes from home all day long either.  So maybe Gram and I are even.
