Aren’t Saturdays supposed to be for relaxing, watching cartoons, and hanging out? Ha. Not at the Papen house. We were up and at ’em at 7:30 this morning, and didn’t stop until a few minutes ago. I’m ready to fall over from exhaustion.
Jeffrey was exceptionally helpful today since I have limited mobility in my right arm…he even took EG to do the Costco shopping for the Super Bowl tomorrow so that I could stay at the barn while Gabby rode the boys (I’m now hyper-sensitive about anyone being alone with the horses). Ellie loves her daddy – and since they don’t get to spend much time together during the week, the weekends are pretty much all about them!
I can’t believe tomorrow is the Super Bowl! I can’t believe that I got nothing done today to prepare for having people over! Ok, so maybe it just feels like I got nothing done. I did make Jambalaya, Pulled Chicken, and started an experimental Po-Boy Beef (we’ll see if it turns out or not)…but the house is a mess, the tables aren’t set up, and I have no idea how I’m going to pull tomorrow off, especially with a gimpy arm. I didn’t even make my signature painted cookies?!?!? WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME??? 🙂 Thank GOD Jake said he would cook; that’s always a treat so maybe things will work out after all!
My poor husband, I was so cranky tonight – and I thought it was just from the pain…then I realized something. You see, I have this horrible, horribly weakness: I forget to eat. When he and I started trying to figure out what I had eaten, I realized that all I had had all day was a breakfast sandwich from Starbucks, a tiny snack at about 10 am, and two bottles of water. No wonder I was cranky!!! I KNOW I need to eat, but I just don’t remember to do so…I used to have to set my alarm on my phone to remind me, and I’m starting to think I need to do that again. It’s such an odd quirk for someone to have who loves food as much as I do – no? I need to work on eating on a more regular basis. I’m sure that my husband would appreciate the change in attitude! Food changes everything!!!!!
