Have you ever gone somewhere, to a store for example, and seen your husband/boyfriend there unexpectedly? (And not in the "uh, oh" sense!) Well today that happened to me. I ran to a local McDonald's to pick up lunch for the people in the office. I decided to go inside because the line in the drive-thru was out of control. I tried calling my husband at work on the way in to see if he wanted me to pick up a sandwich for him and drop it off, but got his voice mail. I knew it was a couple minutes into his lunch hour so I didn't bother leaving a message figuring he already had something figured out. Anyway, as I walked into McD's I saw the familiar backside of my husband. It honestly made my heart skip a beat. I was kind of caught off-guard by it because we have been together for over 12 years (that includes 4 years of dating and 8 years of marriage, at the end of this month). I guess sometimes you forget or take for granted how someone can make you feel.
So in case anyone is wondering, we ended up having a frozen pizza for supper. : ) By the time I got home I really didn't feel like making anything.
Which reminds me of an email conversation I had earlier today with my friend, Angela. I was telling her how when I am at work I can think of tons of things around the house I want to do after work. Then by the time I walk through the door I forget everything or I simply don't feel like doing it. It would be perfect if everyone (or at least me) just worked part-time. Then I'd have 4-5 hours a day to do the things I've been thinking about every day since the beginning of time. I even tried the Flylady website, http://www.flylady.com/ to organize. That didn't really work for me, maybe I need to try it again. I can tell you this, I hate to throw things away. I'm a pack rat. That's a big part of the problem. I just need someone to come in and start tossing stuff for me. I'd probably never miss half the items I've accumulated!
With the weekend coming up it has me thinking about sleeping in and having a nice breakfast of pancakes, something I really like but that I don't have time to make during the week. So my tip for today comes from a book titled "20,001 Kitchen Secrets". To make your pancakes fluffy and lightweight substitute club soda or seltzer for milk or water. I have not tried this, but I do plan on trying it this weekend. I may even throw in a few fresh blueberries! Yumm!
