We have an unbelievable number of things going on every single day between now and the end of school next Friday. In some ways it's energizing to be so busy, but mostly it's stressful. I don't understand why, say, the Spanish play at school needs to be today - why couldn't it have been in April? Both of my boys have August birthdays, and so both of them are celebrating birthdays at school this week. Cal's favorite color is pink, so his birthday cupcakes are pink. I love that about him. I was particularly tense driving the boys to Abbott's Little League playoff game (yes the playoffs are also right now) yesterday evening. Cal: "Mom?" Me: "Yes?" "I love you." He has a way of doing that when I'm upset; and as you might imagine, it really helps reset the mood.
A question for you bakers out there - do you use the convection setting on your oven when you bake cookies if the recipe doesn't specify?
Wishing you well this Wednesday, whether your day be busy or unhurried.
