Wanna a cookie ?

Hey,




I baked cookies !! Everybody, hurry over and we can have a tea party, Okay? I know, I said just last night that I was going to be good and cut out the junk food. Did you really take me seriously ? Well, don't do that anymore.



Actually, I just got so bored this evening - I had to do something. So I decided to bake cookies and torture the dogs. Hehehe. Everytime I turn my back on the table, one of them casually strolls past and raises his/her nose to the edge of the table and sniffs deeply. They know better than to actually help themselves, but they get as close as possible. Then of course, they walk back to the kitchen threshold, lay down with their chin on their paws, sigh deeply, and pout. It's the most pitiful thing you've ever seen.



It's been another one of those days. It's SO cold, nobody wants to get out and do anything. So I'm stuck with a bunch of couch potatos. I shouldn't complain. They're just relaxing and hanging out at home. I'm just not a big T.V. watcher, so it's hard for me to relate to that kind of mindless relaxation. I have to be doing something, reading something, making something, and if all else fails . . . eating something.



I did have to go to the grocery store this afternoon, so I informed my husband that he needed to find his shoes and go with me. While we were out, Jasmin called on the cell phone. She wanted to know WHY Roy was going with me to the store ? "uh . . .because, he's my husband and were spending time together, you know . . . just hanging out together ? . . ." Ater a long pause, she said, "uh, Okay . . .whatever. . . " Is there a reason why it should be strange for me to just want to be with my husband ? My kids are so weird. Even Jasmin, who is grown and married, just refuses to see Roy and I as being like . . . a real "couple." If Roy and I get all kissy face and affectionate in front of them, they just freak ! (Sometimes, I do it just to get rid of them.)

Anyway, since this has been such a dull and boring day, I'm going to answer one of Mel's quizes. Here goes . . .

Cookies are a good junk food... especially since I"m most certain these were made with nuts and fruits! Hold on, they were made by a nut and commented upon by a fruit, does that count? Healthy enough!

I find it amazing that children view their parents as individuals opposed to a couple, especially a romantically involved couple. How odd we humans are!


As for that video for 12.95... I knew you looked familiar, but never made the connection!

It sounds as though you had a marvelous day, hope tomorrow follows suite!
