I was going to write this whole long post today about the benefits of going back to basics. But life has a habit of getting in the way.
Today, life is defined as two kids, one with flu like symptoms, and the other, with something that looks a lot like chicken pox.
I started my day with such vigor. I made a batch of bread this morning. I also made a quadruple batch of banana muffins (thanks to a sale on bananas!)
And then kid #1 got sick. I spent all day with her. I was exhausted by the time the kids were ready for bed. Unfortunately, it was while changing kid #2 into pajamas when I noticed the unmistakable spots.
So... I guess we'll get back to basics tomorrow. And I can be thankful for whatever I did manage to accomplish today (even though I left myself with the mountain of all mountains of dishes).
