I love this time of year. I love that last week I was wearing capris and my air conditioner was on. I love that today it snowed most of the day. Spring is awesome. A few days ago we had a mega rain storm. Of course it was garbage day so garbage cans were floating down the river, er, I mean street. Adventurous!
Because it's fun to torture Parker, I told him to run outside in the rain. Because Parker will do anything for a laugh, he complied.
In other news...
I made this really yummy "Rustic White Bread" the other day from the America's Test Kitchen cookbook. Totally dreamy good.
There was just one little problem....when I cut the "X" in the top of the bread before baking it, I cut a bubble and the bread sort of deflated. After it baked, it left a really unpleasant looking area in the middle of the bread:
Guess what my sis-in-law Fern called it?? "Cat Butt Bread"! ha ha ha! I seriously had to cut that part out of the bread and toss it because I couldn't get the image out of my head. Welcome to the bizarre world of Carrie, I hope you like it here.
Oh hey, you know what is super cool? Parker started Spring soccer last week. Oh how I love soccer. Not really for the sport, but for the good company and good laughs! My good friend Jene' decided to coach the team this year. Since she was the coach, she decided to stack the team with fun kids who had even more fun parents. It has worked out great for me because I get to sit on the sidelines and chat.
Love this picture. It looks like Parker has a ponytail or else Emery (blonde girl to the right) has a seriously wicked horizontal ponytail. Parker loves his black jersey. Let's see how much he loves it when the weather warms up. I wanted their team name to be the Black Hawks but they chose Black Birds instead. Whatebs.
The sheetrock/mud/tape project is coming along quite nicely, thanks to my bro-in-law Jeff! He whines about having to come hang out with me, but I know he loves it! Ha Ha!!
I went to the back doctor today for my follow visit since my cortisone shot 2 weeks ago. He said "I hope to never see you again.". I think that means my back is doing great....Yeah, that's what I'm sure he meant. I'm sure he doesn't mean I'm an annoying patient who does nothing but complain....yeah.....
