I had some inspiration, from talking to some old friends. I really am at a different stage of life, and it’s hard to make conversation with them now. I’ve always had trouble making conversations; me being an introvert, but it is harder now with non-moms… 😓
I never thought I would be the one to grow apart from friends….I thought I would be the one left behind.
I guess this poem is for all the non-moms out there. If you are drifting apart from your friend who can’t seem to make conversation, unless it revolves around baby or husband… just know they are trying. It is difficult to remember small details from before kids or marriage.
I have slowly discovered that not all days will be a new recipe day…sometimes you want an easy dinner that you know exactly how to make it and you are not panicking.
I’ve had those nights for the past two dinners. One night I made hamburgers; the other I made One Pot Beef Stroganoff. Both delicious!
I really do love this cookbook. Anyone who wants to mix up their Cooking, or husband who want a change…get her or yourself this cookbook!
Which I do think having dinner plans made ahead of time is a smart idea, but not when you are on a mission to discover new recipes. So I think I will keep this one around, but I’m going to start a new cookbook.
I already glanced through, and it looks delicious!
So hopefully by my next cooking post I will have a recipe planned. But this post is for all the moms…exploring is good, but don’t burn yourself out at the beginning. Do your everyday recipes when you get tired. Keep cooking as a fun thing to do not a hassle.
Have a happy Wednesday. It is currently 28 degrees….this is a normal Spring…🙄 I do miss actually Spring…
I decided today I would write a poem. It’s been a while since I wrote poetry but my style hasn’t changed. I needed some inspiration so I looked up the word of the day….and came upon The Happiest Word: Laughter. I understand their reasoning. But my happiest word would have to be birth.
Birth. Bring into life. The mom’s in the world…you understand. Even if there are days where you think you will lose all your hair you just need to remember that when they opened their eyes and saw you for the first time…they knew.
Elizabeth has been too much of a sweet sweet to draw…but knowing her personality, I will have something soon.
I felt so accomplished, but it was abruptly dismissed.
Probably a mom has experienced this many times. My feeling of accomplishment was taken by surprise snow. I despise surprise snow when I have to go somewhere. Well it was a crisp 18 degrees this morning; so the snow keeps on giving. Enjoy your Wednesday.
Another comic of my life. It keeps me drawing even if it’s simple drawings.
All moms in the world may understand this…
But my daughter loves to clean. She got a set of toy cleaning tools for Christmas from her grandma, and Elizabeth uses them constantly. It’s nice usually, she likes to clean up her own messes and gets upset when she cannot get it clean.
However when you want to relax and your toddler decides it’s cleaning time you cannot say no, because you want to continue her love of cleaning; so that you will have a helper in the future.
So I mustered up the energy and I mopped. The floor is clean but I was exhausted.
