When the cat's away...

So, I know my husband isn't my boss, but somehow without him here I find little motivation to do normal things.  Usually around four o'clock I start thinking "I'd better get things cleaned up, Hubby will be home soon."  "I should start dinner, I don't want him feeling like he would rather eat a bowl of cereal than wait for me to make something once he's here."

Today, I feel more like offering the kids a bowl of cereal in paper bowls, all of us eating on the couch, and then throwing the mess away and going to bed when the kids do at eight o'clock.  I can't do that though, because the smallest chef only naps at eight o'clock, and will wake back up as soon as I get asleep if I attempt it.  Maybe I'll take a bath instead.

On my menu for today is fajitas.  I can go as far as saying that will not happen.  I didn't buy the meat.  But maybe I'll make something like that anyway.

So, these mice will play and hubby will probably have a really nice dinner on the client's dime.  I like to live vicariously through him for those dinners.  I could go for a nice steak and baked potato right about now, but only if someone else were to make it and feed it to me.  Also they'd have to clean up.

I did make a cake last night, which still needs to be frosted and eaten.  If we have that for dinner does it count?  It's homemade and has eggs, flour, and milk in it, so it's healthy.

I also made two loaves of sweet white bread, which is delicious.


  1. I agree, being husbandless makes cooking dinner totally stink.
    Mine tends to come up for 1/2 an hour for me to feed him, and then he goes somewhere else -- but at least it does make me cook.
    Good luck!
