This day started well enough. Around 11:30 I sent a text to a friend saying that even though we had started school lessons around 10:30 (usually a recipe for disaster) things were going surprisingly well.
Even still around 1:15 I sent a Facebook message to another friend that all was quiet in the house and I was eating a salad in peace.
Soon after that fateful Facebook mistake, all insanity broke out
around here in my mind. I felt like my head was going to ex-plode from child-care/dinner-making/house-cleaning (my head, and my temper along with it.)
I thankfully held it together, but by the time Russ got home from work (I had already texted him begging him to take tomorrow off... so he already had some idea of how things were going here) I was hanging by a nerve.
The rest of the evening was still a struggle. Right around the kids' bed time I got it into my head that I have to organize my recipe box right now. I had already planned on doing this some time this week, but at one point this evening it was organize that box or check myself into a mental institute.
Half way through getting my recipes cleaned up or cleared out, Russ came by with his brow raised quizzically.
"I'M ORGANIZING MY RECIPE BOX BECAUSE IT'S THE ONLY THING I HAVE CONTROL OVER IN MY LIFE!!"

|ohh! Christmas Snack Table menus from previous years stored right up front for reference|
and inspiration. (planning time is approaching, friends!)
|I had two recipes for hot cross buns. Do you know how many times I've made|
hot cross buns??? ( zero.)
|Besides recipes, loook what else I found in my recipe box - two unused pen needles, two used|
lancets, and a bloody test strip. (Aaron's Diabetes Command Center and my recipe box
share a corner kitchen counter space...)
|look at all the recipes I got rid of!! I only saved ones that I actually use. If I found a|
recipe for something that I've never made before but I might want to make it for a
future Easter brunch, I threw it out. That's what Pinterest is for, people.

I'm still feeling a little unstable but at least my project is done... and Russ got all the kids in bed! Isn't he the best?!
