Writing and cooking are very different for me – one I love and one I hate. But they are both giving me trouble occasionally. I haven’t been able to write a decent sentence since December twentieth and Mollie came home for Christmas.
I really loved her being here, especially since LJ and Collin couldn’t come. But there is one big problem – I cannot write sex orspanking with my child in the house! My couple will be all hot and steamy, they’re rubbing against one another, their hands are straying, he tosses her on the bed… and Mollie pops in the room, “Do we have any bologna?” It just somehow breaks my train of thought. But finally, everyone is where they belong during the day and I’m getting some writing done.
Now the cooking problems – I’m trying to get healthier things in my diet. I bought spinach, cauliflower, zucchini and yellow squash. Basically, yuck, but I’m trying. I decided to add cauliflower and spinach chopped fine into my rice hoping I wouldn’t taste them. Itworked. We had the rice, salmon and I also made a spinach sauce to go over it all – no receipt for the sauce I just threw in things I didn’t hate, butter, garlic, a tiny bit of flour, milk, red pepper flakes and spinach. It was good! I was stunned. But, it took so long to get it all ready and cooked, the kitchen was a wreck and it took a long time to get it straight again.
Nick was there, he helped both with the cooking and the cleaning. But to me it just wasn’t worth the time and effort. Yes, dinner tasted fine but I would have been just as happy with a bag of chips and a few cookies. I keep waiting to mature out of this way of thinking, but I’m beginning to doubt that it’s going to happen.
Those are my problems these days – I hope all yours are as minor.
I’d love to have you drop by the Reading Room today – Cassie is answering a few questions.
