I Don’t Recommend Making This

Yesterday I kept Elliott home from school. She woke up with a cough. It was cold. It was raining. It was windy.

Pros and Cons of being “stuck” at home on a rainy day with a coughing kid:


Plan Holden’s party



Straighten up

Make soup

Fold and put away laundry

Do more laundry

Make the guest bed for Uncle Rodney this weekend

Write thank you notes

Less likely to spend money (unless I shop on-line, which I don’t do much)

Have a Chocolate Peanut Butter milkshake while one kid is napping


Have a Chocolate Peanut Butter milkshake while one kid is napping!

Why did I do that? Why did I pull out the Dreyer’s Slow Churned Rich & Creamy Vanilla Bean Light Ice Cream, lowfat milk, TJ’s Organic Midnight Moo Chocolate Syrup and the jar of peanut butter???

Why did I throw it all in the blender with some crushed ice???

Why did it seem like a good idea at the time???

Because it looked like this:

I don’t need to be eating this…a rice cake maybe? Some water? But not this.

So, I don’t recommend making this. It’s NOT good. Who likes chocolate and peanut butter together? Who likes ice cream? Who likes milkshakes?

Today is a new day! I will put on my NB’s this evening and do a little run…I am going to run AWAY from Milkshake Land!
