Just call me Suzy Homemaker...

When I left you yesterday, I had just watched the Super Bowl This Is Us.  I then spent the rest of the day getting things done.

I made a pot of Trisha Yearwood's kale and chirizo soup for my lunches this week.  I left out the potatoes so it would be low carb.  It was pretty good but it did a number on my stomach.  I think she should market it as a detox soup... if you get my drift....I'm not sure I'm going to be able to finish the soup unless I know I'm going to be home for a while...if you get my drift...

Moving on.

After that I prepped a chicken dish that I am having for dinner Thursday night.  I had to take a whole chicken, butterfly it!, and then put it in a marinade where it will sit for 48 hours until I roast it.  This recipe gets rave reviews and if it turns out as good as it supposed to be, I will tell you all about it on Friday.

In addition to all of my cooking I managed to do three loads of laundry and I ironed a 8 of Dan's shirts.  And I was only able to suffer through the ironing because I was watching The Bachelor.  See, something good does come from trash TV -  Dan has freshly laundered and ironed shirts and I didn't have to pay the dry cleaners to do them.

Dan had to take his customers to dinner so I took Peter to the high school basketball game.  I didn't want to go on a school night because I'm lazy but he really wanted to go since it was against their rival school. It was an extremely  tense game and we ended up losing in the end.  It got so tense that Sister Anne would not the Pit (that's where all the students sit) leave until the other school's fans left.

She literally made them all sit down and then proceeded to lecture them on the ins and outs and hows and whys of acting like good Christians at a sporting event - especially when we are a Catholic school.  Although, in the kid's defense, I feel like the other school should have been lectured as well considering some of their PARENTS were escorted out by the POLICE OFFICERS because they were taunting out cheerleaders.

As I mentioned - it was TENSE.

So that was my busy Tuesday and now it's Wednesday.  And did I mention that I also got my car washed yesterday so of course that means it's raining today.

I've got some bills to pay, more laundry to do, I'm having lunch with Jennifer, and then after school Sarah is getting a few inches chopped off her hair.  And I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Dan will be home for diner tonight.

My constant blog writing companion napping in his favorite spot - a desk paper tray that is also currently holding a folded American flag.  Is he comfy?  He must be because here he is a couple of days ago pre flag pillow:

Someone really needs to clean this office!

Oh Wally and his paper tray. That game sounds like tense was an understatement. I can't wait to hear if the chicken was good or not.

We find that putting a box with a towel in it on the desk in a spot you designate helps spare the rest of the desk. Stitch fix boxes are good for this, but most boxes work, even copier paper box lids. It's so endearing when they want to be close to you while you work!

High school sports or really most sports are just so intense. I wish the parents would just let the kids play and have fun.
Your soup sounds yummy!!

The only way I can even think about ironing is with some good Lifetime movies or trash tv!!!!!
Your chicken dish sounds good.
Have a cozy evening. : )

I remember some ridiculous parents from this one particular school at football games and the taunting and gloating - it was insane and made me so angry! It's a GAME and they are kids! Those parents are definitely not modeling good sportsmanship.
