When In Doubt, Drink Milkshakes

We got a late start this morning. Our weekly library visit, plus an essential fabric store visit, ran us past lunchtime. On the way back home, the children were (loudly) bemoaning their state of starvation in the car whilst refusing all offers of available sustenance. I told them 'twas better to eat a single granola bar than to curse the hunger.

No one listened to me.

I'm popping popcorn for the kids now (after dutifully neglecting them after lunch while I dozed on and off for an hour like the 80-year-old I'm not) and I put extra oil in the pot. It's that sort of a reckless day, you know? And now I think I may have invented deep-fried popcorn. Serendipity is my friend.

And that's all I've got, folks. Some days my muse deserts me. She's probably over at Chik-Fil-A, drinking a peach milkshake. Because I know that's where I'd like to be right now, if I were 10 pounds lighter.

I have a skinny muse.

  4. I never knew there was another flavor of milkshake other than chocolate. I learn something new every day. Thank you.

    Keep resting. It is the best way to ward off becoming an 80-year-old before your time. Hope you're feeling better and find yourself to be ten pounds lighter tomorrow. I'm convinced that I can lose ten pounds by then.

  5. Babe, don't aqologize: kids suck you dry. They will even suck the marrow out of your bones if you don't watch out. It's incredible that any of us moms have any creative juices left at the end of the day. But it's also insquiring that (sorry, a letter on my keyboard isn't working, must have been a drink squilled on it) AS USUAL, we can create a funny story out of...well, not much. Yay, us!

  9. Dutifully neglecting our kids and then giving them special popcorn is one of the joys of motherhood. I prefer to give mine a 5-10 minute "mommy needs a nap" time frame, with the promise of a smoothie afterward. They give in, not because they love smoothies but because I'm falling asleep anyway AND no one is making them do homework if I'm napping. Win-win scenario!

  10. I think that muse was, looking at that second picture, desserting you. She pulled a fast one there.

  11. I don't know if a peach milkshake sounds good to me. I like classics--vanilla and chocolate.

    You are so fun.

  12. that made me hungry and smiley. A peach milkshake sounds great. Also, a banana one is good. Also, I resent you for making me think about milkshakes at the beginning of my dr. imposed diet.
