First, thanks for your comments on Thursday’s post. I feel kind of ridiculous now. In the grand scheme of things, my problems weren’t so bad. Guess I was just feeling crabby. Yesterday, however, was a *great* day, totally making up for it! We got a bit of snow and freezing rain the night before so the school called for a two hour delay, which was great for us. We had a leisurely morning. I made cinnamon rolls. Jake got some extra play time. And by the time we went out to wait for the bus it was sunny and relatively warm! I got a lot of cleaning done and I also made pizza dough from scratch for the first time. My brother sent me a great recipe and the dough was perfect! My mid-afternoon I had last night’s dinner (BBQ chicken and bacon pizza and salad) prepped and in the fridge so I just threw the pizza in the oven when Drew got home.
It was also a good mail day. I got a suprise postcard from my friend Angie in New Zealand! Plus, I got the rebate for the printer I bought on Black Friday (which I totally forgot about!), and I got the sake set I won on Ebay! One of my wine-related goals this year is to learn about sake. I felt like I really needed a sake set to have the full experience, but I didn’t want to break the bank either. I fell in love with this one, won the Ebay auction, and I feel like I got a good deal. I was the high bidder at $7.49. I looked around online to see if I could find it for sale anywhere. Pearl River (in NYC) has just the cups, and they are priced at $2.50 a piece, so I am pretty pleased! I can’t wait to use it!
Today I am working and it is pretty dull, so I am trying to catch up on blogs. Tomorrow my brother and sister-in-law are coming down to visit, so that will be fun. And then on Monday we’re all off, so that will be nice. Hope you are having a great weekend!
