Of course, this brings to mind all of those News Blurbs - you know, the ones that grab your attention and make you actually want to stay tuned for the 10 o-clock news... and then they save that story for the very end. Staying up 'til 10 is really no big deal for me... but most days staying up 'til 11 is a touch harder - apparently it has something to do with getting old? At least that's what the teenager says. You know what though - half of the time that News Blurb that promises "new findings about your health" is telling me that excessive fat can harm your health - or that drinking a lot of water can reduce your risk of constipation. What's with that? Why is it "news" when we've known it forever? (or at least we SHOULD have known it forever!)
So what have I been up to? Well, you'll just have to trust me that you don't want the details because it turns out I've been rather ill... can't seem to completely kick the flu bug that I picked up. I woke up feeling a little punk still this morning and saw my son picking at the last of yesterday's Cinnamon Pull Apart Bread... kind of felt nauseated - but then realized that it wouldn't make me feel SICKER, so I had a piece... I was right, didn't feel any sicker at all, even after two more pieces :)
F.Y.I. - Cinnamon Pull Apart Bread is a great way to utilize that dough that doesn't quite work out... I was going to teach the boy how to make Cinnamon Rolls... but using the old recipe in the new bread machine just didn't work as well...
Hopefully now that the kids are back to school I can be a blogger extraordinaire :) Tomorrow I'll finally tell the story that I promised a long time ago... since some of you have thought I was exaggerating when I said I spent 1/2 my childhood on crutches. (yep, a little exaggeration... it was really closer to 1/4)
