We’re decorating as fast as we can, considering we just put away Thanksgiving. Please don’t push my panic button! I’m leaving several up in January to compensate.
We had homemade Belgian Waffles using that Belgian waffle mix last week. They made a delicious dinner but next morning both of us had elevated levels on our blood sugar readings. We obviously can’t make the waffles a regular thing but with some extra exercise and a careful diet that day, I think we can repeat them sometimes.
Actually, all waffles do better if allowed to rest overnight. And if you want to go the extra step, you separate the eggs, beat the egg white separately and fold it in as the last step before putting the batter in the fridge.
I’m fairly certain that Sockness Monster has been destroyed a few times by Mortimer so this isn’t the first substitute. Something’s different this time.
One of a mom’s standard rules: do not ask what’s being served before deciding whether or not to accept a dinner invitation. Of course, nowadays, after accepting a child should tell their friend about any food allergies or restrictions. He could then say that he could stay another time if that’s a problem.
And I decided a long time ago that paws or pause works just as well.
On a good day, I’d tell him how sorry I was that it happened but maybe it would be better if he kept it up off the floor. That would surely earn some eye rolls and a disgusted sigh but it’s better than my real uge to just yell at him.
I’ve learned to paste a smile on my face and agree with whatever they have planned— bedroom, food, or activities. Unless it’s going on 4:30 and they’re about to plan dinner. That’s when I tentatively say that I’ll go out and purchase some ham from the Honey Baked Ham store that they like. I always offer to bring a few meals with me but they want to do it themselves. The late offer of the ham is always accepted.
Yup, and everyone is safe, happy, and spending time together.
Unfortunately, this type of unspoken misinterpretation happens too often. I’ll be thinking that my husband is doing too much and needs to sit down and take a water break and he’ll be thinking that I wish he was doing something I want him to get done.
