This and That
Happy 2008 to everyone. I am especially excited for all the families from our adoption agency that just got a referral for a child in Ethiopia. It's buzzin' at CHSFS!
Last night for New Year's Eve we had two families over for pizza and fun. There were 10 children and 6 adults. It was... interesting. I was in bed promptly at 10:00 pm and pretty darn glad about it too. Today David and I actually had time alone together and we went to a movie. A great movie, but get me in a dark room in a comfortable chair and I was afraid I would fall asleep.
I am indulging in some great Christmas presents. My fabulous hubby got me a gift certificate to Supper Solutions--which is a nice name for "I hate to cook and am too darn lazy to really think about it so I go to a store where I can create 12 meals and take them home and freeze them." Unromantic, you say? HA! You don't know me very well then. This is quite possibly the greatest gift ever. I do love to bake. I am a pretty good bread maker (from scratch, no bread machine!!!) but the whole cooking thing just rubs me wrong. Making a meal for 5 people night after night after night?
Things I'd rather be doing instead of cooking:
Stuck in an elevator
Throwing a tantrum
You get the idea. I'll be making my meals sometime in the next week and I'll let you know how it goes. Oh yeah--the kids. They're great. Loving vacation and other than normal sibling petty bickering we're having a blast.
