MY LIFE AS I LIVE IT

I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

What Was I Doing?

I hate that question...I ask it all the time. I'm in the middle of something...think of something else I need to do and I'm off. Then, I'm wondering 'what was I doing?' This is my day today, especially.

Mark should be home in about...4 hours? Yeah, with any luck he'll be running late. In the next 4 hours the boys and I need to pick up the house, all get our showers, get packed for our visit to Lubbock (mom-in-law) and I need to bake TWO chocolate pecan pies. Oh yeah, do any of you have a good recipe?? No, I did actually download one yesterday on-line to buy the ingredients with, so I do have that. So, all I really need is prayer...because as all those who know me, I'm not the family cook here. In fact, I come in just after Charlie, who's behind Casey, who follows our main cook (and well deserved, because the guy is just fantastic in the kitchen) Mark. Just shut up, those of you who are doing the math, yes, that puts me at last. So?? So you see why the prayers and good wishes are needed. Did I mention FOUR hours to get all of this done. Yeah, I've got to get my butt in gear... Okay, so what was I doing??

Don't feel bad, I always forget things too. I'll be watching a show on tv and when commercials come on, I forget what I was watching. Ezel will come in and ask what I'm watching...I have to hit info on the remote to see what it is.

Just don't stress out, and if all else fails, just buy a damn pie!

I have to pack tonight and get things ready to go to San Antonio...good luck! Love ya :)

Everything will just fall together--it always happens that way. I've been preparing all day actually---and then tomorrow cooking half my dinner, and Thursday morning---I'll be cooking till 7am.

One day at a time, and just enjoy it---cooking is meant to be enjoyed.
