It’s so gloomy here, just like my mood. It’s suppose to rain. I live in a desert so when it rains it floods because the ground is so hard the water has no where to go. Then the roads flood and everyone loses their minds.
I’m moody. I’m really ready for the next step. I’m in the waiting place.
THE WAITING PLACE
by Dr. Seuss
Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come,
or a plane to go or the mail to come,
or the rain to go or the phone to ring,
or the snow to snow or waiting around for a Yes or No
or waiting for their hair to grow
Yep this is how I feel. It’s terrible. I have a play date with the Jedi today. So I’ll get some adult conversation which is wonderful. I’m desperately trying to keep busy.
I met up with a friend of mine today, she’s been my friend since before I became mom to the Jedi. Her twins are the same age so they enjoy playing together. We had a good chat and it made me feel a little better. She reassured me I cannot please everyone and it’s not my job to either. So I feel better.
Better enough to make Texas Eggrolls. They’re delicious and simple. I take 5-10 jalapeños and broil them for 10-15 minutes. Then I chop off the stems and mix them with two packs of cream cheese. (Pretend I took pictures, it’ll make us both feel better)
Then take a big spoonful of the mixture put into egg roll wrappers and fold up. Then deep fry in your favorite oil!
So delicious! We’re also having left over ribs, macaroni and cheese, corn, and salad for dinner. Yummy!!
The dictator eventually just used the icing as war paint, and Jedi took it super serious. It was messy fun and good family time. I’m really hoping to break this funk. Tomorrow I hope to clean and get things ready for the coming week.
The Jedi finished product.
