13 Years Ago Today...


...our youngest son, Craig, was born!  And now we have two teenagers in the house.  It's hard to believe how fast thirteen years has gone by!

You're probably wondering how I'm doing after my big excursion out into the snow yesterday (I'm sure the suspense is killing you...). 

Well, I definitely did a little too much - big surprise!  I felt a bit crashed both last night and first thing this morning - not horrible, but tired and a bit achy.  But I took my medications after breakfast, including the beta-blockers, and within a couple of hours, I felt well enough to take a shower and...ready for this?...bake a pie for Craig's birthday!  Seriously.  Baking is usually something I can only manage on a really good day, but I managed fine today.  Both of our boys have been obsessed with banana cream pie lately, so I made a homemade black-bottomed banana cream pie - store-bought crust but still...

I'm a little tired now, but afternoons are always the worst time of day for me.  I feel like I'll be able to manage our dinner out tonight for Craig's birthday without a problem.  So far, so good...

Time to go whip the cream (too bad I won't be able to eat much of this dairy-heavy pie!).
