We Are

We are recovering.  From plan changes.  From parties.  From cake.  From colds.  Things are getting back on track.  Slowly, but they are getting there.  

I did manage to clear out the kitchen desk from the Big To-Do list.  The top needs clearing, but it's one of those horizontal spaces that will just never be empty.  Ever.  Even the basement is holding its own after I tackled it on Saturday.  There was no way I was heading into a big family gathering with it looking like that.

  • We are, and have been, so excited for our birthday.  EXCITED.
  • We are allowed to stay up late on a school night to finish this Lego set.  
  • We are super proud to have built this set all by himself.
  • We are treating myself on my birthday with the first PSL of the season.
  • We are on-ice, where her heart and soul always rights itself.  Her roommates have no idea what they are in for.
  • We are baking up birthday celebrant-specific treats.  My first tube-pan-style angel food cake.  Looks pretty good.  Tasted even better.  See Friday's post.
  • We are baking up a chocolate sheet cake request.  Always delish.
  • We are rolling in Legos
  • We are celebrating
  • We are enjoying this as a back-drop for our drive time this week.  The second soundtrack volume comes out in two days, not that I'm counting.  I need to go get myself the first half on BluRay (since it was not gifted to me, I held off getting it until after birthdays) because the second half comes out in a week or so.  I may need professional help.
  • We are documenting roommate wars.  First strike.
  • We are upping the ante on roommate wars.  Paybacks will be hell after this retaliation.
  • We are not traditional cake people.  We learned years ago, that for this one, a tower of donuts (his favorite dessert) was the ticket.
  • We are giving him his fake ID - shout out to his sister for her forgery skills.  The fake one notified him of his enrollment in driver's ed, which will lead him to his real license.
Happy Wednesday,
