Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Not sure what's going on

The stars just aren’t aligned right…or something.

When Max woke me up at 5:45 this morning, demanding a drink, I should have just turned over, hid under the covers, and prayed that I’d disappear, just for a while anyhow.

As I ambled down to the kitchen, I soon discovered that we were out of two morning essentials….any form of coffee, and milk. Lack of the first item led me to be groggy and irritable all morning. And it wasn’t until I left the house for Cameron’s 9AM soccer game was I able to sip my morning vice….a LARGE (I refuse to say “venti”) Carmel Macchiato from Starbucks.

But not having milk was worse. Lack of this dairy product meant that I was not able to turn on the TV, pour the boys their cereal and milk and head back upstairs to sleep a little more until Ella decided she wanted some attention. In order to feed the munchkins, I actually had to whip up some batter and cook some pancakes. I even ended up making pancakes and eggs for my husband.

My unusual domesticity continued through day as I made some apple crisp and some sweet potato soufflé, both from scratch, both somewhat time consuming.

I’m not sure what’s wrong with me. I think the winter blues are settling in early.

YOU GO GIRL! To make anything from scratch requires a high five.

Care to come to the A-T-L and make us breakfast? I am sure that my husband would appreciate it as his current morning dietary intake consists of cereal and milk in a bowl.

Lately, I have not even had the energy to cook dinner. I am soooooooo lazy!

Oh my, I've been the same way. Dinner has been a joke....chicken nuggets, hotdogs, pizza, or whatever Melvin picks up on the way home. I'm not sure why I'm in this dinner funk. I just can't think of anything to make!

It's the fall weather. As soon as it hits I turn into some sort of freakish baking mutant, and I already am a freak in that area. It's very frightening. I am sure there is a support group for exuberant fall baking syndrome.

Best thing since sliced bread - the crockpot or slow cooker! Just toss some meat, potatoes, veggies, spices in at the beginning of the day, pick up a loaf of bread, and 6-8 hours later - DINNER! No fuss, no watching, and you've still made it from scratch (and, if you've made enough, it's dinner for tomorrow night, too!). Such a lovely, lovely invention......you can cook just about anything in it, too! Love, love, LOVE mine!!! (And I normally cook from scratch most days, even with my crazy schedule, but the crockpot is central on a lot of those days!)
