It turns out my niece is a vegetarian. So my meal plan is out and I'm struggling to reinvent everything without having to spend more money. We'll see.
I'm also struggling with the impulse to *splurge* while she is here... you know... cinnamon rolls from the corner, chinese food buffet, indoor rock climbing.
How much sleep did you all get last night? How much do you think you get in general?

And you do not need a bread machine to make it.
Does anyone live in Vancouver? We like to think it rocks there.
I'll leave you with this....
"It looks like a tornado went through there." Mrs F remarks to Kid after surveying the living room.
"It did. A tornado hit." Kid explains.
Oh... in that case... awesome creative play... carry on.
