I actually had 7 solid hours of sleep Saturday night. Unmedicated. First time since 2002. Sadly I did not repeat it last night so I’m a bit vague this morning.
Havoc got poison ivy over the holiday weekend and spent all last week covered in it. He is highly allergic & one small patch on his leg get into his system and within 2 days it’s popping up all over his body. He could barely use his right hand Thurs-Sat due to the huge blisters on his fingers. So naturally he has just been a JOY to live with. I understand he is not comfortable & it makes him cranky but seriously…it’s been like living with a 2 year old with all the meltdowns everytime things don’t go his way.
My baking quest this summer seems to be the perfect chewy, yet solid granola bar. I can make great chewy bar shaped granola but as soon as you pick it up it crumbles to pieces. I’ve got about a dozen recipes from the interwebs and I’ve been working with them, making small batches trying to mimic Quaker Chewy Granola bars, though Mayhem says mimicing the Special K bars is ok too.
Feckless – 1. Careless and irresponsible 2. Lacking purpose or vitality; feeble or ineffective.
I come across this word constantly in books but no one ever says it out loud in real life. I think it is highly applicable in everyday life with small children or lazy coworkers so I am hoping to use it often this week.
My parents are coming to visit at the end of this week. They were coming Thursday but now will be here Saturday. They were staying until Sunday but now will be here until Tuesday morning. I host our monthly bunco group on that Tuesday evening.
This works out so well for me. My mom is a cleaning nut and I have long since given up on cleaning to her standards or being offended when she cleans rooms I thought were clean. So. My main bathroom and kitchen will be spotless when she leaves Tuesday morning & I think even I can keep ahead of the little mess makers for 12 hours so the rooms remain spotless for bunco.
Thank you Holly for hosting potluck. Please feel free to join in with your own randomness!
