As promised, today's post will include a lot of verbal diarrhea and no pictures. You're welcome.
So, I pretty much covered the winter formal in yesterday's post. I will, however, mention that I really, really enjoy my kids' friends. I especially like the fact that they all feel comfortable enough in our home to help themselves to pizza and sodas from the fridge while standing around the kitchen island, gossiping and joking around with each other. I don't think I will enjoy the quiet in my house once both of the kids have left the nest. But, I'm not thinking about that right now.
Once the kids left for the dance, I had a couple of hours to recoup my energy before they returned for round two of pizza, sodas and kitchen conversations at which point I excused myself and retired to my bed, where I kept an ear out for the kids until they eventually all went their separate ways.
Sunday morning, I got up early and hit the kitchen for a marathon red velvet cupcake baking extravaganza. Which, makes baking cupcakes sound so exciting! It was not. The cupcakes turned out beautifully, however, and, are now in the freezer, awaiting a dousing with cream cheese frosting later this week.
While the cupcakes were baking, I was cooking several different dishes to stock the fridge with for the week, which will make my evenings a lot less stressful.
Then, I did a test run of table decorating for my Spring Luncheon table, making notes of items I still need to pick up.
As is the case every Sunday of my life; laundry was running on a constant rotation throughout the day.
Throw in payroll for the hardware store, general housekeeping, and, kitchen clean-up following all the baking and cooking, and, my day was complete.
I'm actually looking forward to going to work today, just for the rest and relaxation.
