I'm having a dinner party for eight friends at my house tomorrow. Since inviting everyone a few days ago, my vacuum has quit working and today my garbage disposal went out. "HA!", I say. I can laugh into the wind because it really doesn't matter - that's one of the blessings of being of a certain age; it gives you perspective.
On the flip side...I had planned to go to the store this morning, then come home to make a cake for tomorrow night. I never made it to the store (long story). I looked at what I had in the pantry and began grabbing anything that I thought might be a good blend of flavors. I began with a Yellow Butter Cake mix. Then, besides the usual eggs and oil, I dumped in a can of mandarin oranges, some orange yogurt, orange juice concentrate, and a handful of Craisins.
A good dessert can cover a multitude of "oopsies".
You can quote me on that!
We're not the typical family.
I've recently become Caregiver/Guardian to my Mom as she deals with Dementia. I'm married, have three grown children and also an 18 yr. old daughter who lives at home and recently made us grandparents to her beautiful new baby girl. That means that we have four generations of women under the same roof. Mister and I have been married forever. . .It's not the life we dreamed about, nor the one we would have chosen, but most days we find a way to laugh and bumble our way through. We're enjoying the journey, even with the unexpected side trips along the way. FOLLOW ME, if you dare! LOL!
