Of course, #1 DID NOT sleep in. Up at 6:15. I swear I could set a clock to her time. And, she typically lets me know she’s awake by screaming “I’M A.WAAAKKKKEEEE!” Yeah. It’s that pleasant.
After breakfast and getting every body squared away, we had a mini tv-a-thon. The roads were still bad, so we had to stay in. A little tv never hurt, right?
And, holy cuteness, #2 is adorable. She loves to climb into the chair (yeah, it’s #1’s, but she never uses it), turn around, sit down and give the biggest smile.
I had to capture that on film. I’ve sort of been on a camera hiatus, and this definitely re-motivated me.
So, I did.
#1’s idea of making cookies involves sitting in the chair nearest the bowl the dough is in and eating spoonfuls of it.
So, I actually made the cookies. She just ate them.
But, rats, our oven is horrible. Elecrolux, did you hear that? We need a new oven! The temperature is all over the place. I know this because there is another thermometer that we placed inside the oven to tell confirm what I thought (more on that in a second).
So, this is what happens when your oven is no good. Flat, crispy cookies. Baking FAIL #320,546,966!
What you don’t see here is the dough that spilled over the side of the cookie sheet and onto the racks in the oven. So, I decided an oven cleaning was in order.
I waited until the kiddos were in bed (thank goodness, because the oven and stove top get REALLY hot), and set it to clean.
I left the kitchen, and came back a couple minutes later.
Holy crap!!!! My oven is ON FIRE!
What to do….what to do? I pulled on the oven door, and was reminded that it was locked. Oh, well. Can’t do anything about it.
So, what’s a good blogger to do? Take a picture of said inferno in the oven.
In the afternoon, the girls were TIRED on being in the house. And so was I!
“Let me out! Let.me.out!”
We then headed to the library where there were only 2 (okay, maybe 3) breakdowns.
And, then, I got a call that school was canceled today (which meant daycare was closed) but that I needed to come in. Yeah, that’s not going to happen.
And, then the choirs sang and I got an email that daycare was going to be open today!
So, it’s back to work for me!
