- I'm so tired of being hungry. I eat every hour, on the hour, and I am sick of every bit of food in this house. I made peanut butter balls, and they were AMAZING because one little chunk of peanut butter and honey, dipped in chocolate, kept me full for an hour. How efficient!
- I would like a Wendy's frosty, a package of marshmallow pinwheel cookies, some fried chicken from Albertsons, and some kimchee. Please.
- My husband is urgently reminding me that I only want a bite or two of each, so PLEASE Myrnie, don't purchase these items at Costco. And then he reminds me of the great Fruit Snack debacle of 2004, when after weeks of pining I finally caved and bought them at Costco...and could only eat half a bag before they made me nauseous.
- After spending two hours in a car, without food, ferrying family members around towns, I was nearly in tears by the time we got home tonight. I ate tortilla chips dipped in apple butter, because they were closest to where I was standing to prepare dinner. (I had only planned on spending 45 minutes TOPS in that car.)
Nesting is starting to kick in, on my "up" days. I cleaned the upstairs playroom with the girls for TWO AND A HALF hours yesterday. Yikes. We organized the toys, recycled a tub full of papers, sent all the Tupperware back to the kitchen...I even got out the crevice tool and vacuumed the baseboards and window sills. The girls were shocked when I was true to my new mandate: You get out one toy, you play, you put it back. I sat next to the toy cabinet for an hour enforcing this rule! (Please don't let them know it's because I was too tired and sore to get up.) But, in my defense, this is the "upstairs" toys- things they don't get to play with unsupervised, like board games, art supplies, and play dough.
(I love the way Ernie wears her headbands)
The husband swears I did this last time too, but I don't remember being so miserably hungry all the time! So tell me, moms: What do you keep around for emergency snacking and meals?
