Probably because I've been home with a pinkalicious girl. She saw the doc yesterday and she does in fact have pink-eye. It has now progressed to both eyes and she's on an antibiotic. I'm not a fan of antibiotics and this particular child has already reached what should be her lifetime max of them, but I do think it was necessary this time. She likes being home with me. I like having her here too, but I really don't think I can watch the Chrissa (American Girl) movie with her again today. It's great, but I've seen it four times since Sunday.
While she's watching the movie, I think I'm going to do some menu-planning. I enjoy the planning much more than the shopping! I don't know if ya'll know this--or if you even care--but I plan my menus two weeks at a time and since the first of the year I've been posting them on my recipe blog.
Yesterday when I was at the grocery store picking up Abbey's prescriptions, I grabbed some veggies for salad. I ended up with these cherub tomatoes. I don't usually buy this kind because they're pricey but yesterday they were on sale and OH MY GOSH. They are so good and sweet. I almost ate the entire container. Have you had them? They are SO worth the price. So worth it. I'm thinking of going back and getting some more this afternoon.
Speaking of food (because I seem to be on a food roll here), I really REALLY want to try Whimzie's White Chocolate
Popcorn Crack. The sooner the better. Sounds like the perfect treat for this sweet/salty girl! Maybe I could add some green food coloring and make it a St. Patrick's Day treat. (Some dear friends plan a St. Patrick's Day meal where everything on their plate is green--except the corned beef. We joined them for their dinner a couple of years ago and our kids thought it was the grandest thing. They especially loved the green rice krispie treats I made for dessert!)
I'm still counting down--3 more days of school until Spring Break. I think I'm going to make it, but this week is feeling very full. VERY full. I've got everything I need to do and everywhere the kids and I need to be written down, but I'm still feeling like I'm going to forget something.
I don't think I've mentioned my trip next week. John has to do some work-related travel and he asked if I'd like to go with him. (Well okay honey, twist my arm.) So the two of us are going to a fabulous city that I've always wanted to visit. Wanna guess where? (If I've told you, you're not allowed to guess...and ahem, YOU know who you are!)
That's more than enough rambling for now. Maybe I'll have something exciting to talk about soon. Maybe. Maybe not.
*UPDATE: I made the white chocolate popcorn a little while ago. It is YUM-O! And I LOVED Janna's St. Patrick's Day craft/dinner ideas!
