I guess it's not really your fault that Not-So-Ex has had to work the entire holiday (and 10-12 hour shifts at that)... And it's not really your fault that it's been so cold that I haven't really wanted to leave the nice warm security of my apartment... But I do blame you for the fact that I finally get all the good movie channels and there's still not a single thing on. Seriously, a girl can only watch Season One of True Blood so many times.
But I have to say that it was pretty awesome of Not-So-Ex to ensure that there was a well-stocked fridge before he started these insane work hours. If there's something that I've always wanted to try but never had the time, it's been made. Last night I decided to try (yet again) Angel Food cupcakes and, for the first time ever, they turned out just right! And I also made peanutless peanut brittle (or as my mom insists I call it, "brittle"), which has always been a dream of mine. All those summer vacations to the beach or Gatlinburg where I would sit and pour over the peanut brittle looking for the package with the least peanuts were building up to this one moment. And it was everything I dreamed it could be! LOL
While today is definitely the end of our mini vacation, I hope it will be the end of the boredom too. I have some things I have to get done in the kitchen (like gifts for the kids' teachers since they missed the last day of school before the holidays). Plus I have to get the kids ready to head back to school and myself ready to head back to work. And I should really schedule some Beatles Rock Band time before we all have to get back on the grind.
And, while I know the huge paycheck that will come with all this overtime will be wonderful, I really want my hubby back home! It's so funny cause I can remember a time when I was trying to get used to having him here all the time and how weird it was to go from being on my own to having a live in boyfriend. And here we are like 6 months (maybe?) later and I miss him when he's just working! LOL
But anyway, this week also includes the return of thesis work as I have lunches scheduled with my Director of Photography (DP) and my Co-Producer. I'm excited to get moving again. Seeing the actual finished script (at least the rough version) was a real motivator!
Well I guess I'll get back to scouring allrecipes.com for more stuff to make! Later!
