Things have been feeling a little crazy around here, so I did what any sane person would do and ceased buying processed snacks for my family and proceeded to make my own. Because that makes total sense, right? Rather than buy a box of Cheez-Its, I spend my evenings in the kitchen making the dough, rolling the dough, cutting the dough, piercing the dough, and (finally!) baking them. I also made homemade Ritz crackers. Because obviously people who make homemade crackers need a cracker repertoire. I don’t want to be a one hit wonder.
They’re really tasty, though!
You want to know what else is crazy? Last night, it was dark here by 7:00. DARK! I am not ready to hibernate! I am not ready for winter! How can this be? It’s October, friends, which means I’m ripe for Christmas music any second now. AND I STILL HAVEN’T PUT AWAY ALL MY CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS FROM LAST YEAR! I keep a small box in the basement to catch any strays after we move the main boxes to the attic, and I never got around to that box of strays to the attic. Maybe next year I should just keep the tree up? Tahd? I’m going to do it.
Another crazy thing…
I was on a call in the school pick-up lane, and when I finally looked behind me, this is what I saw. Which makes me feel even more sensible for making the homemade crackers. It’s not like my hands are full or anything. I should probably start grinding my own wheat during all my spare time.
Also, I lost my debit card about 6 months ago. I had it while I was sitting on the couch one night, and then the next morning, it was gone, and I had to get a new one because of all the looking and none of the finding. Imagine my surprise when Gabe nonchalantly handed it to me yesterday. Said he wanted to play a wii game and went to eject the disc that was in there, but a debit card popped out instead. I’m not going to name any names, but ISLA DID IT.
In less crazy news, my 31 Days series is live over at my new site, Loving Motherhood More. I’d love it if you join me there and subscribe to the newsletter on the sidebar! I have all sorts of fun, non-crazy things planned for it, and none of them involve telling people how to make their own crackers.
