Behind The Butter

my so called life

A huge thank you to Heather for such a lovely recipe guest post this morning! I know what recipe I’ll be christening my new oven with (once I finally finish moving). Heh heh heh

Right now though, I could really use one of these. And more coffee…because coffee is always a really good idea, no? Especially when you just discover you have more cavities than you thought (fact), wireless internet will take ten days to set up, and half of your ingredients for the dish you’re about to make are in one house and the rest are in another.

Oh, and I have a pimple. I totally have a pimple!

Yes, I’m a wee bit stressed out…why do you ask?

Beam me here.

    Did you hear this yesterday? Too funny it aired the same day you wrote about the book … anyway, maybe you can give it a listen while you’re moving/cooking and it’ll help melt away some of the stress. It’ll be almost as good as sitting down to read the book! 😉

        Yoga has the same effect on me – oy.

        Oh my, that’s a lot of stress. I hear ya. I suggest not trying to do everything at once – get a Wireless “Stick”, haul out a bottle of wine, ditch the recipe (more time running between houses and losing ingredients) – and order a pizza.

        Oh and don’t try licking your nose like that. Only he can do that and get away with it. 😉

    Jenna, hang in there! Moving is ROUGH. Very rough.

    I know you will be feeling so much better when this is all over. But pimples, cavities, and things randomly just all over the place..not fun!

    Hang in there. Have some more coffee. Or one of those blackberry margs you linked 🙂

    Sorry to hear about your cavities, I am going through a similar situation. I have to go in for a complete exam on Monday and I am not looking forward to how many they will find! Hope everything works out for you!

    Stress that is SO worth it! We all need little things to get us out of our groove because once you get back into it, it’ll feel soooo good. 🙂

    This sounds familiar… oh yeah, sounds just like me! lol Moving is tough! It will drain every bit of energy out of you, like a full-time, pay-less job!! Hang in there. Deep breaths. 🙂

    I actually read recently that dogs lick their noses when they are de-stressing or something like that. Can you lick your nose? It might help! LOL

    Good luck on the unpacking. Getting settled is never easy, but once you do it feels great. Try and focus on the end result. It will be worth it! 🙂

    It’s amazing what coffee can do for you in the morning , isn’t it?! This morning after dropping off the kids at school, my dog, Chloe and I decided to do some errands. After returning to my car, I found that Chloe had drank my entire Starbuck’s Misto {decaf, thankfully}…..and I was so looking forward to that Misto!
    Hope the rest of your move goes smoothly and you have plenty of coffee to get you through!

    Dare I say at least your car is still intact? Either way, you deserve some pajama pants, comfy slippers, and a hot mug of chocolate goodness.
