If you are wondering what happened to the original (from earlier today) post I deleted, I apologize. I had, what I like to call, posters remorse. Since I have not actually started the job, I thought it better to wait and post all the juicy details after it was in fact, my new job- not just an offer that I accepted.
I felt the same way about having a baby shower when I was pregnant with the triplets. Call it superstitious, call it not counting eggs before they hatch, whatever.... I just did not want to jinx anything. The same holds true about my new personal shopping position. I will wait and keep the post in draft mode until my job is a current one, not a future one.
So while I am waiting for my career to begin, I am nesting here at home. I am starting to build up the batch food reserves in the freezer so that my dinner plans will continue without much interruption. I can work hard, come home and have a nice meal ready with little effort. Between batch cooking and my crock pot, I doubt my full time work schedule will have an impact on dinner time.
This also means that the blog has been a virtual snooze fest. I have been documenting all the food items and recipes, but if I continue to turn this spot into a food blog, my readers will fall asleep at the screen. YAWN!
Before I go on a food blogging binge, here are a few highlights from the mouths of babes this week:
Eli reported that he really enjoyed having hot lunch at school. His favorite side dish was "BAR-GANZO" beans. I made him repeat it three times before I realized he was trying to tell me he had garbanzo beans. It was at that precise moment when it dawned on me....hot lunch at a Jewish school is far more interesting that public school hot lunch. Doy!
NEWSFLASH! Natalie has a lower tooth that is loose. While it will be a few weeks before that sucker comes out, she is finally on the path to joining her brothers in the club. THANK GAWD. I could not take much more of the insanity. Now, Charlotte is asking me to check her mouth too, so the tooth drama will continue for years.
I cleaned CJ's glasses before school this morning. You have no idea how ridiculously filthy and smudged a 5 year old boy can get his lenses. They were so gross, I actually used both steam and a lysol wipe on them. When I handed them back, he put them on, looked up at me and said, "WOW, these are so clear I can see even better than before, it is like my eyes aren't even looking through glass!" Note to self, clean his glasses more often.
While I have not spoken to Mitchell on the phone, I have been keeping up with his new college life via his posts on facebook. A parent can learn a lot from social networking with their kid. I know that Mitchell is fine, he is adjusting well to dorm life, and that he and his roommate have, and I quote: "just signed a roommate agreement sheet. Rule number 1... No fat chicks." end quote. Nice. At the risk of being de-friended,(again) I can also share these from the heart of Mitchell Slutsky gems: "First day of class tomorrow! Not only do I get to walk across the entire campus for my first class but I get to wake up extra early to go buy a text book. Tomorrow is gonna be so fun!" I wonder where he gets the sarcasm? As a concerned parent, I was glad he updated his status later that evening, "saw about 1,000 girls i would do today... things are looking up" I don't think he is depressed and home sick.
So to conclude, prepare for the following posts to be more food than fluff. I will get back to the regularly scheduled programming, eventually.
