1. I’m eating leftover enchiladas for lunch and you KNOW they’re good because I’m not a big fan of things left over. I tried something new last night and partially fried the corn tortillas before filling them and I used pepper jack instead of Monterrey jack and OH MY WORD they are delicious and I had to get another bite of them before my tribe gets home from school and devours everything edible from the fridge.
That’s the problem with teaching kids self-sufficiency. They learn how to operate the microwave and suddenly, you’re out of food.
2. Typically when my friend Heather calls me to go on a field trip with her clan, I jump at the opportunity because chances are there will be popsicles or cupcakes involved.
She speaks my love language.
Yesterday she pulled a switcheroo on me, though, and we ended up on a three mile stroll down the sidewalk hike through the jungle by the Art Museum and did I mention it was straight up noon and a thousand degrees?
I’ll do most anything to hang out with this little one.
We walked to the halfway point of the bridge that crosses the interstate and waved at the drivers that ignored us because they were all on their cell phones.
And then I went to Sonic for a Route 44 Diet Dr. Pepper with vanilla to try and rehydrate.
3. I won my parking ticket appeal. Shhh.
Have a nice day.
