Protective gear, 24/7

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

Tuesday morning I took my last chocolate chip scone out of the freezer and put it on the counter to defrost, so I could snack on it when I got home from school.

When I did get home from school, I was distracted by cookies and I completely forgot to eat or re-wrap the scone.

Cookies are very appealing. They’re something of a brain black hole. What should I have for dinn… HEY COOKIES.

Yesterday morning the scone was all dried out, so I crumbled it over some cottage cheese and cut up some strawberries on top.

Then I pretended that had been my plan all along.

I had a showing of my house at lunchtime (anyone want to rent an adorable Louisville townhome?), and afterwards I was disheartened. Happily, Crockett had also had a moderately crappy morning.

What? I don’t like to be cranky alone.

We went out and let other people prepare food for us.

That always cheers us up.

Thank you, OLI, for my never-fail happy lunch of green chili.

I took the girls for a walk and then settled down to get some homework done prior to….

HOCKEY.

Full disclosure: I don’t really enjoy the actually hockey as much as I enjoy the beer and the yelling.

Beer and yelling.

Me, in a nutshell.

The beer was 1554 – I love it when there’s a non-Bud Light option.

Not that I won’t drink Bud Light, if that’s all there is at a sporting event.

I totally will.

Sadly, the Avs lost in overtime.

Also, you don’t get to see the nachos we ate because we both woke up, unhappy in our bellies, at 3:15 this morning, and I blame the nachos. They’ve forfeit their right to be pictured by making us sick.

Please accept this lovely picture of happy coffee in exchange.
