It's hard being at the top of the food chain...

You always hear that moms "don't get time off..."

Ain't that the truth. 

I've got myself a lousy cold- that I actually think is becoming an ear infection- and I'm just really tired. Tonight, I'd love to go to bed at like 730 and just try to get a good nights sleep....

But between the kids, dinners, homework (thank god we have no activities this evening)-oh and the dog- I'll be lucky if I make it sleepy time before 930. 

Thank goodness for Advil and extra strength Tylenol to get me through the duration.....

Nom nom nom...

I equate food with happiness. 

Not in the sense in that I eat to feel happy or that I'm an emotional eater; but in the sense of sharing food. 

Cooking makes me happy. I look forward to football Sundays and thinking about what I want to make. Or holiday dinners and a room full of people. 

Food shopping makes me happy or rather the look of the cabinets full afterwards. 

Food is a gift that we can share- it binds us and bonds us closer together. 

And- it's delicious!

Mary Catherine Elizabeth Cheyenne Louisa Theresa Anne Marie!

I am cracking up right now. 

I'm watching the show that's on CMT about the Dallas cowboy cheerleader auditions. 

Let me tell you- the names are a riot!  Everyone either must want to be a model, an actress or they just don't believe in last names! 

Ashley Lynne. Tessa Christine. Paula Marie. Jennifer Kathryn. Jenna Denise. 

You get the picture. 
It's really, really funny.

It's funny how busy my life is now and yet so boring. I don't mean boring in the sense of dissatisfied- I mean in the sense that I don't have anything fun to blog about anymore. 

My job is awesome- so I don't have any gripes there; my kids are older so we don't go on fun "mommy and me" adventures any more so much as they are scheduled events:  basketball games, singing lessons, tennis lessons, after school activities and such. 

It's not that I don't enjoy blogging because I do- I just feel that I don't have any interesting insights or even randomness to share at the moment. 

But like life itself, I'm sure in time this too shall pass....

Life is....

Always moving. 
Calm. (Then suddenly chaotic)
Genuinely enjoyable at times.
Ideallic, occasionally. 
Sleepless at times! 
Very, very...
Zag nab it good. :)
