Milkbones from Jake

Just a few thoughts from my first Thanksgiving. Turkey is good. Turkey taken off the counter is bad. Being chased thru the house is fun. Being tied up outside while everyone else is inside eating turkey is not fun. That was my first Thanksgiving.

New Goals

For whatever reason, the past couple of years I have been setting silly goals for myself. In 2008, what started out as wanting to make one new recipe a week turned into almost 300 new recipes in a year. I couldn't decide on which goals to reach in 2009 and ended up not doing anything. 2010 found me conquering Farmville on Facebook and learning how to blog. Not sure what I'll do in 2011 yet. Thinking of learning Photoshop or something similar and maybe challenging myself to spend less at the grocery store. (Is that possible with 3 teenagers in the house?) Guess I have a little time to think about this.

The Witching Hour(s)

Today wasn't so great. Well, it started off ok, but went downhill fast after school. The eldest started "critiquing" people, the boys argued over who was to use the computer,the puppy went crazy and ran thru the house growling and biting (biting only me of course) and FL simply had a melt down, literally throwing herself on the floor and screaming. For 3 hours. It only took 4 hours 16 minutes for her to fall asleep tonight. Granted, I put her to bed about 6:30, but still. . . . .
