54 Days to NYC
Rest day...except not at all. Our first day back at school and between getting me ready and off to school and the kids ready and off to school, and then a full day at school and then dinner and swimming and fighting to get the kids into bed at the "school" hour and not "summer"hour, I fell into bed before 10pm exhausted. But not too exhausted to read. The Beach House is not quite as light as I though; more like Ten Year Nap in terms of weight. And like Ten Year Nap, I was both uncomfortable with the fact that someone could get inside my head like that while at the same time relieved that I am clearly not the only one out there that can identify with those thoughts.
A simple dinner of steak and double-baked potatoes. Once again, if you make the food pretty, the kiddies will eat it. I bake potatoes, split them in 1/2 (almost) fill with chopped steamed broccoli and then top with a little shredded cheese and put back in the over until the cheese melts. Now doesn't that sound much prettier and more appetizing than a baked potato with steamed broccoli on the side.
P.S. Those high heels with Nike Technology do not work.
