Early to bed and whatnot

I was full of ambition to head to the gym tonight as soon as the kids were in bed. A sizable Mrs. Field's cookie, along with a peanut butter and honey sandwich were heavy on my conscience. (I will not mention the pasta with cream sauce I made for dinner.)

Is there any better flavor combination than peanut butter and honey? No, there is not. Write that down.

But as the day went on, I got tired. See, I stayed up stupid-late last night telling y'all all about my scones. Cause apparently that was just *so* important it couldn't wait. Late-breaking scone news!!

Then, Grace started waking up this morning at 5:30. She had some emptying of cupboards and looking for choking hazards to do, and wanted to get a jump on the day. Thank the sweet Lord that Jason got up with her! But I lay awake, willing myself to go back to sleep.

So tonight when we tucked the kids in at 7:30, instead of changing and heading to the gym, I crawled into bed. It had to be done. And I'm still here.

As my mom says, I've got a severe case of the cain't-help-its. There are only a few cures--sleep or peanut butter. But not at the same time, obviously. I've got option 2 covered, so I think it's time for bed.

Good night! Be good to yourself. Xoxo


  1. I’m sorry but I was not able to read anything past the words you wrote about tucking kids into bed at 7:30. :-)
    BTW I looked at the link the other day about the choc cake recipe and it looks great--does it have to be done in a jelly roll pan??? Also, the scones looked so perfectly yummy! I made 24 cupcakes with sprinkles last night from 10:30 to midnight. And sent them all in to school. :-(

  2. My Lily's favorite sandwich is peanut butter and honey! And the other day, she wanted peanut butter and honey on saltines. What can I say, I made them for her!

  3. Hey Michele! It's really yummy. The first time I made it in a jelly roll pan. It got a little messy! I think you could do just fine with a casserole dish. The second time I halved the recipe and baked it in a square pan. That was the perfect size for me, er, us. The full recipe is ginormous.

    Ginny-- lily is on the right track. Saltines...might need to try that! :)

  4. When Jonathan was small, a pediatrician told me that a peanut butter and honey sandwich on whole wheat bread served with a glass of milk contains all the essential amino acids!
    You are simply nutritionally sound!

  5. Peanut butter and nutella. That is the reigning champ in my house.
