People! Please! Put down those torches! I am in no way forcing my poor children to eat a vegetable that they despise. First, they all ate it last week and enjoyed it. True story. Second, they were free to leave it on their plates - all it would cost them was the measly cookie I was handing out for dessert. There's none of that ridiculous "Sit at the table until you eat it" nonsense around here - if I don't have the kitchen cleaned and EMPTY by 7 PM, I go berserk. Nor is there any "If you don't eat it now, you'll see it for breakfast" shenanigans. Who the heck could eat cold sauteed zucchini for breakfast? I think I would feel sick just serving it.
Sheesh - next time, tell these frightening childhood stories to your therapists, okay? I'm going to have nightmares.
I did take note of your complaints about my slow-loading blog. That happens to me, too; but I had been thinking it was just my poor, overloaded computer that was at fault. Flinging caution to the winds this morning, I checked out Blogger's new templates and was pleasantly surprised - they've come a long way since this blog's Creamsicle days, I must say. So I trepidatiously clicked on a few items and - TA-DA! I have a new look. Blogger even let me keep my polka dots.
Refreshing, isn't it? Feels almost as good as when I get a new hairstyle and it didn't cost me a penny...
Oh - and most important of all - Derfwad Manor is back and all is right with the world. Hooray! We missed you, Mrs. G!
