Thoughts and apologies...

So I had all these great intentions of blogging more often. The blogs I read are updated at least weekly and hold my attention because I know what's happening. Sadly, my best intentions of blogging often have gone astray! Not that I don't think about it, I think about it a LOT! "I should blog about this" is a common thought in my mind.

Here are some other thoughts I've had recently:

1. I think mothers with toddlers should be exempt from ANY kind of housecleaning code. Particularly when your son feeds himself sauerkraut and mashed potatoes and then you spend days finding all the things he touched on his way to get clean in the tub.

2. Cats. Why can't they stick around our farm? We have terrible luck with cats. My poor daughter got a kitten from a neighbor and promptly named it "KittyBoy" (and it was, I checked). She spent the day bossing it around and it died two days later! To her credit, she accepts death with a "KittyBoy all gone" and a shrug of her shoulders.

3. My daughter is a copy-cat of her mother. She has a kitten at Grandma's house named "Socks" that only comes inside when she's there (at her insistence) and is wrapped in blankets and read to. Grandma and Grandpa didn't know if it was a boy or a girl so when I was allowed to hold "it", I discreetly turned it upside-down and took a look. I turned to Grandma and said, "Boy" and gave it back to Jana. A while later she was walking around with Socks and flipped him upside-down and said, "Boy!"...twice!

4. Will people appreciate my homemade Christmas gifts? I love homemade gifts, but maybe others don't...I guess we'll see.

I have a super easy, super good cookie recipe to blog on later.
Until then, I think I'll go sample one...
