Today I did something that I had not done in the past 6 years. I made a batch of home made chocolate chip/oatmeal cookies. That’s pretty big news for me. I’m not the baker or the cook for that matter. But we are heading to Charleston this weekend for New Years and I wanted to bring something that was not store bought. 2 burns (to myself!) and 40 cookies later I think they turned out pretty good. But the whole process did remind me why I do not like to bake. It has been a slammed weekend for me. Dave has been gone to NC for an event and I took down all the Christmas stuff and am getting the family ready to be gone for a week. I can’t believe all the stuff that goes into getting everyone out the door. After Charleston we are heading to a late Christmas with Dave’s family. So I’m exhausted and looking forward to Dave being back tomorrow and finished things around the house.
