Would schedule a graduation party...on a Wednesday...three days before leaving for a week in a cabin?
A crazy woman, that's who.
Never mind that I have towels to gather and wash, clothes to pack, meals to plan, shop for, and pack...that is all on hold until tomorrow. Today, we are going to the berry patch down the road for strawberries...
I made lots of cupcakes last night, with the help of Charlotte Claire and Camille. This is sometimes harder than just doing it myself, but it makes it fun. I didn't have enough cocoa powder, so I substituted a can of chocolate sweetened condensed milk for the two cups of milk, adding a splash of half and half in to make up for the other two ounces, as the can was 14 ounces. Fuzzy math. I also added two cups of boiling just brewed coffee instead of the water the recipe called for, and oh dear they are good. They aren't dense and chocolate-y like the ones I usually make, but they'll do.
I won't list the things I have to get done today, but believe me, it's enough.
The things I have to do are running through my head, and when I finally fell asleep last night, the newsreel of items I need for the camp, Jon's first youth conference weekend (does he have enough clean clothes? And he lost the only pair of sneakers he owns, left them in his friend's van....).
This fine morning, I drove Suzanne to school for a Living Environment Regents, then welcomed Davian. I had coffee with my son Samuel (yay, Sam's home!!!!!), then made French Toast and eggs for breakfast. I am at the point now where I KNOW I have tons of stuff to do, but am procrastinating starting in on it.
Maybe I'll send the kids to the berry patch with money and stay home and do things...like sit here, ha.
Yesterday after picking Ev up from school, Suzanne and I, and Evelyn, went to Aldi for some fruit, eggs, salad stuff...then we went to the fabric store, not for fabric, but for one of those cool coloring books for adults, and new markers, for the cabin in the woods.
Sam went to the school to pick Suzanne up from her test, and now they're home...so bye for now.
