If you haven't caught on yet, I plan on posting every day this week with the happenings in my life. It'll either be interesting or boring, I make no promises. Like I mentioned in a previous post, I feel the need to blog but I don't really know what to blog about and there's not been much going on. So I thought I'd let you all have a sneak peak into my *exciting* daily life! Feel free to hit the red X at the top right hand corner of the screen at any time. ;)
Today was a day with Braxton. On a normal day with him he's here from 10:30-3:15. Today his mom worked more hours so I had him from 7:45-5:15. So naturally I had to get up at o-dark-thirty which I'm not a fan of, but it's worth it if it means I get to spend time with that little cutie! Have I mentioned I'm not a morning person? Those who know me will attest to that with both hands raised! haha...
Let's see...what did we do today? Probably an hour after he got here he went down for a nap and I was right along side him because I wasn't feeling too well. (Praise the Lord I'm feeling better now!) I won't say how long we slept. Ahem...=) After that it pretty much went like this...eat lunch, poop, play, eat some snacks, poop, play, eat dinner, poop, play. Lol, I'm not exaggerating when I say this...those who have kids or have ever watched them will say it's true. Usually there's another nap in there, but alas it was not meant to be today.
Braxton turned 10 months old this weekend, and is busier than ever. He's walking all over the place now, which means I'm constantly on his heels trying to keep him out of stuff or away from the fireplace! Ahh! He's talking more and more each day and is such a joy to have! It makes me think of the day *Lord willing* when it'll be my own kids I'm chasing around. Can't wait!
After he left I got started on dinner. Potato soup was on the menu. A friend mentioned doing potato soup with roasted potatoes and I thought that sounded delicious, so trusty, old Google helped me find a recipe. The recipe I tried is from Allrecipes...Roasted Garlic Potato Soup It had really good flavor, but was THICK. If you decide to give it a try, I recommend adding more milk than it calls for. I didn't, but definitely will if I ever make it again.
One more thing...I learned a very valuable lesson tonight. When the oven has been roasting potatoes, cooking anything really, for any amount of time at a very high temperature....DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT have your face right there when you open the oven door. VERY hot steam comes pouring out of the oven and it H.U.R.T.S! I'm ok now, but it seriously was stinging! I hope you all learn from my mistake. :)
Ok...that's all I have for Tuesday...see you back here tomorrow!
