not movin off the couch...

I use to think weekends were for kickin back, taking it easy and rest!! WTHeck? I am pooped! When you try to cram too many fun things in the weekend-you get one crabby mom on Sunday!

I won't bore you all with the crazy details, but all I can say is 12 girls overnight after the basketball game??? The Bird ( our daughter, last one in the nest..other sibs call her The Bird) is a cheerleader and her squad felt they needed a "Bonding" night. So in a super weak moment I said yes. Didn't turn out too bad. I sent Dr & the dogs to the shabin for the night and I hung around with a glass(bottle) of Mr Kendall Jackson chardonnay. The deal was everyone had to be gone by 10am. I woke up about 7:30 and wiped up some breakfast and here they came... a few Mom's came in for coffee too.

I used my griddle on my stove for the first time. Yes-Have owned this stove for 5 years and never wanted it to get dirty??? Yep that's how I roll! But -I loved it!! Minimal mess and perfect pancakes. The one thing I have in my kitchen that I love & use all the time is my warming draw. Keeps everything nice & hot!!

Spending the rest of the day in front of the tube with my eyes closed or working on the "wedding shrug" project. #1 daughter asked me to knit her something to wear after the ceremony. So I have to August to come up with something. I have a idea-making a practice run on some yarn I have laying around, but have my eye on some pretty silk, La Luz 100% silk. Beautiful!

Ps... My Job!
I mentioned I changed jobs! This is a much better gig for me. Yes, I am still Mediating. But I am a contract Mediator now. Work less- Make more??? True. I still have a contract with a Native American Tribe to be all their mediation, love them!! I work from home and pick my hours. Most of my divorce cases are motivated parents who want the best for their family and are willing to work on it. So it's better. Much better!!
Off to the couch..


  1. I WANT THAT STOVE!!! I keep trying to figure out a way to get one of those in my kitchen and I think I'm fighting a losing battle. Mainly, the island would have to go.
    You good for cooking breakfast. That is something I will not do. I will go to the donut store and buy dozens but the smell of breakfast makes me sick.

  2. Good for you for using your griddle. The pancakes look yummy. I don't have one, but I do have a warming drawer and use it often.

    Good luck with your knitting project and congratulations on your new job.
