Dream Home, part 4: The Waiting Game

I don't know about you but when I am waiting for something, I try to keep myself busy.

First my worry wart genes wake my ass up at 4: 15 am.

Then I turn into a Betty Crocker/ Martha Stewart wannabe.

That'd be a spinach and feta omlet, potatoes and sausages!


"I like it when my Mom is trying to keep herself busy!"

Then I make my kids go outside and "have fun" in the blizzard we are having just so I can take pictures of them.



Then when the kids are good and worn out I put them both down for a long winters nap and wait some more!

The floors get scrubbed, clothes get washed, and then my crazy domestic brain starts to think about chocolate cake! Hot Damn! Some how we happen to have all the ingredients to make it, with homemade chocolate frosting too!


My kids wake up just in time to help me frost.



Then we eat a totally Weight Watcher Friendly Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese frosting!
And I am very, very good at lying to myself at this point!

And then we finally get a phone call...

Later today, I swear. I cannot neglect my kids any longer!

Ooooooh, seriously girl, that was wrong on sooooo many levels.

First, you dangled fresh baked chocolate cake in front of my eyes and then teased me in to thinking you were gonna tell what happened!
