an afternoon rest...
Tonight, the girls are having friends over. I made chocolate chip cookie dough, still have to bake some, and we're making pizzas.
I don't feel like doing anything, btw. Duke woke me up at 6 a.m., and I knew I wouldn't be able to go back to sleep because I had to be up a bit after seven anyway, to work at the college basketball game at the Dome. So my feet hurt, not to complain, but listen...the stadium is all cement floors, and we had to stay open until the game was over, and of course we had to open way before game time to prepare food, ect. We sold pretzels and popcorn, hot dogs and coneys, sausage subs and pizza, and nachos....cotton candy, caramel corn, candy, water, soda. The lines were long, it was busy. By the time we got home and I walked up the driveway, my feet were longing to be up, here in the comfy chair.
Now I am sitting down for the second time, the cookie dough is made, I cleaned up a bit...but I have to go bake, and make pizzas. Is it just me or does my life revolve around food?
But first, something very cool: Kathryn bought me a new laptop/chromebook! It's coming soon in the mail! I almost cried when she told me, I don't want her spending her money on me, she has a new job, and is only working until July when she goes to Norway for a year, she should be saving up. My little old Samsung Chromebook has seen better days....the screen has to be in a certain position or it goes black, it's missing keys, the puppy chewed up the charger so it has this wonky one that only charges it when it feels like it. One false move, and it shuts off. So Kathryn surprised me and ordered one for me.
She wanted to wait until it arrived, but the other girls were so excited to tell me, she couldn't wait.
So tonight they are having some friends over, and I want to make it nice for them, so I am reluctantly getting out of my chair...only my feet are reluctant, the rest of me likes doing fun stuff like making cookies, ha.
