I apologize in advance. I am beyond exhausted. Last night, Ex brought me the kids instead of taking them to work this morning because he didn’t want to be stressed on his first day at the new job. When he brings them he informs me Baby is teething. His back molars are coming in, he had a small temperature Saturday, he’s complaining his teeth hurt, and you can feel it right below the gum. Baby and I did not sleep last night. I decided to come in late to work a bit so we could get a couple hours of restful sleep but it really is not enough. I’m dead.
I made these cookies last night and used way too much butter apparently. The recipe calls for 2/3 cups butter which I don’t know how to measure out in Tablespoons and I have no internet at home to tell me it’s 11 Tablespoons. I used 13. They’re freaking delicious but yes I do see that I overdid the butter. Oh well. Now I know. I also know that if you let a two year old decide how many chocolate chips to put into a chocolate chip cookie batter, it’s a win-win situation. He loves pouring chocolate chips and you love eating chocolate by the pound.
That’s all I can muster up in my brain right now. So I’ll throw photos at you. These were from not this Saturday, but the Saturday before. We went bike riding with my parents and then went to a Gelato place down the street that I really, really, really like– my Dad’s treat.
P.S. It looks like I’m destined to blow the budget this month. All three kids needed new shoes and I’ve been driving around trying to take care of errands. I have $1.35 left and less than a quarter tank of gas. *sigh* I’m also out of certain things that are going to have to be replenished sooner or later. I have been stocking up on some stuff as there have been some good deals worth taking advantage of but still. I’m frustrated and a bit disappointed in myself. I won’t lie, I’ve indulged more this month in dining out than I wanted to. I am finding the months I go out to eat or buy lunch tend to be months I blow my budgets. Eating food I didn’t make myself is my major budget buster and one I have a hard time resisting when I get started with. God I just wish this income order was in effect already. And that he had never fallen so behind to begin with.
