I had big plans for Super Bowl, big food plans that is! I had perfectly planned out appetizers, main course, football shaped dessert for weeks now! The excitement is over and the Packers won! I must say that I could care less since I loathe football, but it's an exciting time for men, LOL! I do watch the commercials though. Reality is I had a sick baby who was running a fever around the clock, so needless to say I rarely slept this past weekend. I managed to grab a nap with the baby yesterday afternoon, got up around 6pm and came in here and was pleasantly surprised! I saw my husband and 3 kids in the living room floor eating dinner! He had gotten them the $10 family meal from Long John Silver's! I can't begin to tell you how happy I was at that moment! You would've think he cooked a seven course meal, LOL! I was just so happy that they had food to eat and I didn't have to spend time in the kitchen after feeling bad!
I had planned on entering a cookie contest this weekend. I made the cookies, filled and decorated them, they didn't look so hot, so plan #2 was to make some royal icing. I didn't have any meringue powder so I found a recipe on the internet to use with egg whites. Well that didn't turn out good either, my colors weren't dark enough,ugh! I'm not even going to attempt #3 try, at least the kids can eat the cookies (minus the ones I decorated with the egg white mixture!)
This morning after sleeping a combined total of 5 hours (which I was thankful to get!) I woke up to a table that I couldn't even see the bottom of because it was so cluttered with dirty dishes and Long John Silver's boxes, but it shows that my family was fed.
I fixed a quick breakfast (scrambled eggs and cinnamon toast) and started to clear the table off. I was still grabbing cups from the table as the big kids were eating breakfast this morning. Normally my husband takes the kids to school before he goes into the office, but he's training out of town all this week so me and the little kids gotta drop them off. So I'm very thankful that my husband can drop them off for me all the other times. Nothing like a change in your routine to make you thankful! I just put baby down for a nap and I'm trying my best to get my 4 yr old to nap too, since he stayed up way too late last night! Not sure if it will work or not, but if it does, then maybe I will get to nap too. Maybe I need to start doing caffeinated drinks to get some more energy, LOL!
