We got hit with a half-inch of ice overnight, fortunately we did not lose power, but my husband’s office building did, so he is home today. The boys were already off for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, so it’s a whole day of togetherness.
So far, I have done the following:
Made homemade pancakes for breakfast
Made homemade chocolate chip cookies for snack
Made homemade turkey club sandwiches for lunch
Why so much cooking? Because my husband and boys are DRIVING ME CRAZY. They have the LOUDEST VOICES on the planet. The boys play Lego Star Wars II on the GameCube and SHOUT back and forth to each other, even though they are sitting right next to each other. My husband is hard of hearing due to years working at Kinko’s with those louder than heck copy machines blasting away, so he watches TV with the volume set to stun.
My only escape is the kitchen. If I gain back the three pounds I lost, I’m blaming this damn ice.
