"It was bound to happen and one night it did..." -- Garth Brooks
I came home late and I didn't blog last night. I know. You're tearing your hair out, thinking what could possibly have been so important to her that she let us down? Was there an emergency of some kind? Is she alive? For the love of God, is she in the hospital somewhere with NO INTERNET ACCESS!?
No. I was just too tired. I heartily apologize.
As I sit here at the computer with my homemade sausage McMuffin with egg, I realize the world didn't end even though I said I would blog every single day. I know there's no point in blogging twice today to make up for it. I'm okay, I don't feel like a failure, it's no big deal. But it kind of irritates me. This is me in general -- I throw myself wholeheartedly into something and then when I'm bored, tired, overwhelmed, I drop it like a hot potato. But I'm not letting that creep in. That's part of the reinvention. I'm going to trek on with this, even though I might not do it every single day. It will be a year-long process. I will read 100 books. I will continue to write every night that it is humanly possible for me (or every morning as the case may be...) And the more followers I have, the less likely I am to let them down, so by golly, bring your friends! Yes, YOU!
My homemade sausage McMuffin with egg recipe:
(Mine has fewer calories/fat than McDonald's)
Make an egg over-easy on the stove
Put a frozen sausage patty in the microwave
Toast an english muffin
Put a slice of American cheese on the muffin
Flip the egg over, turn off the heat
Put the egg on top of the cheese
Get the sausage patty out of the microwave and soak up the massive amounts of grease with a paper towel
Put the sausage patty on top of the egg
Flip the muffin over
Put the whole thing in the microwave for thirty seconds
Yeah, I'm an awesome cook. N O T. But really, the whole family likes these, so it's simple and quick and everyone's happy. Well, the people who are here are happy! Steve's reading in the office, so he got to eat. Michael's sleeping, and I'm a big proponent of letting my kids sleep in on weekends when there's nothing to do because I know how much I love to sleep in (I got up at 10:00 to fresh coffee my husband made, and it was a beautiful thing.) Aria spent the night at her Grandma's house, and Zachary spent the night at his friend's house because he had to leave at 4:30 this morning for his Northern Lights competition (show choir). Poor thing won't get home until after midnight tonight. Last night, we didn't get home until after midnight either -- we ushered for "Crumbs from the Table of Joy" at South Bend Civic with some friends of ours, and one friend came to see it, and one was in the play, so we all went out for wings afterward and another friend came to meet us there. Lots of fun. Tonight we have tickets to see "Frost/Nixon" at New World Arts, which should also be enjoyable.
I'll be doing some reading today, I assume, since the weather is bright but cold, so I don't want to go outside. We don't have to leave the house until almost 7 to get to the show, either, so I've got a nice day of vegging out. Ahhhhhh.
Hope everyone has a fantastic day. I really appreciate you reading and posting -- please continue to do so!
