I made an AWFUL dinner tonight. Truly terrible…my self-esteem is really starting to sink here. KUR-PLOP, here that? Yup that was my self-esteem dropping and here is why:
Last week I pulled out my sewing machine in an ambitious effort to learn how to sew. My best friend had recently pulled out her machine and was sewing within about an hour… me, not so much. It took me an hour to thread that stupid machine. After I had everything threaded and ready to go (or so I thought) the stitches wouldn’t stay. I was so positive I could conquer the world of sewing, or at least begin my conquering (yes I know that word does not really fit there) efforts but alas the sewing machine had different thoughts. I left Fred, the sewing machine, out so that I will not forget or forgive his presence and I am now on a rampage in submitting his will to me…. This has become WAY to vindictive for an inanimate object….
Fast forward to this evening-
We are on a budget. A Dave Ramsey kind of budget. Cash only and No Debt allowed. I went grocery shopping last week and apparently didn’t buy enough food. Thank goodness for the garden. It has been supplying us with veggies for a couple of days now…. ANYWAYS, I found a Paula Deen recipe for Mac and Cheese and it is the Mac and Cheese of doom. It was so bland and for some odd reason the noodles that I stocked up on (they were on a major sale) are pretty gross. They taste slightly sweet. Who sweetens noodles?! Soooo, I ended up with a weird combo of sweet and bland with a whole lot of cheese and butter. We ended up eating Peanut Butter and Jelly instead.
These two things are only some of the side effects of my summer time blues. I have a love hate relationship with summer. I enjoy the idea of summer. Pool parties, BBQs, Fourth of July, no school etc… and in all honesty I have been participating in all of those things. However out here in the land of endless heat we kind-of shut down. Everyone hibernates and only comes out in the morning and the evening so the boys and I are restless and bored. Now before everyone jumps on the craft band wagon let me say this; there are only so many crafts that one mother (meaning me) can do. I have patience but not enough to launch into a new craft every.single.day.
Alright, I am done complaining. But I do want to know, Do you get the summer time blues??!
