Today is probably a grocery day for me, again. We nned some variety with the meats... we have pork and we have chicken thighs but we have been eating a lot of those. Need to look at the sales fliers and see what else is good. Kids to camp- last day for this really early one... waking DD up at 6:50 in the morning is not going well.... pay bills too.

My dh told me that I had done enough this week and that today I should rest, surf the web and read a book and just relax. I will still cook all meals from home.

That was great to hear since I have drank two cups of coffee already today and I am still dragging.

I had one kiddo this morning and one this afternoon who is leaving at 3:00. I PUPA downstairs and we went to the book sale. I bought a few books for 50 cents a piece and found 2 air supply CDs for my sis for Christmas.

DH received a sizable check yesterday for a retroactive pay raise and a daycare family paid me for the week dad was out of work so we are back in good financial shape so DH is in a good mood again.

I am hoping to make some t-shirt scarves this afternoon. My sister requested them for Christmas.

I take it he hasn't divorced you yet.

I have had a mild UTI all week and went to the doc in the box last night. My pharmacy had already closed, so he faxed the Rx and I need to pick it up this morning. (The alternative was to go to Walgreen's, but I'd probably still be waiting for it).

DS came home from work Wednesday afternoon with a 103 fever, took yesterday off and is also off today. He told me he was going to call the doc. The fever comes down with aspirin, but goes back up when the aspirin wears off. The only other symptoms are severe body aches and a mild sore throat. I asked the doc in the box about it last night, and he suggested strep, but he doesn't seem sick enough for that.

DS cooked breakfast for me this morning. It's fun to see him develop his own way of cooking things. His food doesn't taste like mine anymore.

We've been watching the Olympics a lot--really enjoyed the sculling yesterday afternoon. Getting a little tired of swimming and gymnastics. Today, I have a lot of cleaning and rearranging to do in the basement before the company comes next week. (Seven people will be staying with us, if you count the 2-month-old baby.) Also need to do laundry, and it's a good day for hanging clothes. I cooked a really good dinner last night(parmesan encrusted cod, sweet potatoes with cranberries and maple syrup and corn on the cob...all very easy, and all very good) and will have to work at it to match that one tonight.

found some good deals - a old but in excellent condition suitcase for my craft room, new shower caddy, 5 new candles, and a christmas pinecone wreath - think I'm gonna take the christmas stuff off it and just have it for fall. Also went to farmers market - no bargains there anymore but did get some great fresh veg and artisan bread. Now I've had it for the day so I expect I'll be napping soon

So I got some homework done.  We're having leftovers for supper tonight to clean out the fridge before we go shopping tomorrow.  I need to make cake frosting tonight so it'll be ready to make cupcakes tomorrow, for a birthday party on Sunday.  I need red frosting which is notoriously bitter.  I bought some no-taste Wilton paste coloring, but I read online that it still can be a little bitter if you use a lot, and red will be the only color of the frosting.  People on that website recommended 2 things so I'm going to divide the batch and try both.  One said to put some cocoa in the frosting before adding the red tint, that it takes much less to get a nice deep red.  Another person said they use red koolaid powder to color it, of course it flavors it as well.  So I'm trying both.

When the kids were little I used one of those Wilton kits to make Raggedy Anne. She was adorable, but the red frosting was so bad we scraped it off! Even my little cake-crazy kids.
