I will not be blogging much in the next few days as I am leaving for New York for an extended weekend with my KoD. The kids have mid winter break and are spending it with their other parent. I had reserved a rental car at the beginning of the week at a good rate, but yesterday I cancelled it. Empress CaresALot called me, and asked if I wanted to drive down with her and her kids as they had a family simcha to attend. Heck Yeah! Her timing fitted in with mine, the schedules aligned perfectly. Such a gift from God. Usually I have to do the drive alone. Sometimes I relish the peace and quiet. Sometimes, well, I start talking to myself to relieve the boredom. So to have a driving partner and built in entertainment (the kids) is just phenomenal. We will be cranking up the 80s music and singing at the tops of our lungs.
I spent a couple of hours in the kitchen today baking 144 chocolate chip cookies for my KoD and my boys. It was a great feeling watching the boys walk in the door after school, sniff the air and jump into my arms thanking me for baking them their favourite treats. Then they tried stealing them when my back was turned. Which of course, I did not notice at all. Nu uh! (For the recipe and how-to pictures for the chocolate chip cookies go over to my fan page on Facebook- linkage up top, on right).
Have an awesome weekend everyone, I hope to be back to blogging by Tuesday, if not before.
