Recipe of the week!

It's called a "Recipe for Disaster".  Really, it is.

First, you take ONE sick baby and fold in the installation of ONE really big wood floor.  For FIVE days.

While folding in the wood floor (remember that this requires ONE husband and FOUR brothers day and night with ONE faulty compressor and TWO nail guns), sprinkle in FOUR more children who miss their dad and have cabin fever. 

Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, mix FOUR house showings, homeschooling, housework, and ONE faulty washing machine.  Then beat in TWO pediatrician visits, TWO antibiotics, and slowly add in the ONE baby who won't eat with an ear infection and a rash (from the first antibiotic) and the wood floor.

Mix well and stew on high.  By Saturday, you will have ONE tired, grumpy, and worn out Mom.  No one in the family really likes this recipe a whole lot.  :)

  1. Your recipe made me chuckle. :) Although not funny, being that it led to a very rough week for you, it was a cute perspective to write it in.

    I hope this week is much better and moving preparations go smooth for you! Good luck.

  2. Thanks... sometimes you just have to make fun of the chaos! It can only get better as the weather warms and plans get finalized, right?
