Happy Birthday to Me

Okay, so I had a birthday.  This is what my cake could have looked like, but my husband sensibly opted for a single candle in a cupcake instead.  No need for a blazing birthday inferno.  I had a nice day at home with my family, eating lobsters and playing Uno.

You probably noticed I changed my blog template back.  Whatever.  I learned a lot about HTML code that I never wanted to know, but I've finally put things back to normal.  Duplicate blog posts, weird slide shows, and funny locked ad widgets or gadgets or whatever they were have been banished after several frustrating hours of searching through help guides and FAQs.  All in all, it was a colossal waste of time.

Today's the last day of the Memorial Day weekend, but we don't have anything special planned.  I've been avoiding things like laundry, grocery shopping, and cleaning the bathrooms, and it's starting to catch up with me.  If I don't buy food today, I'll be packing Uncle Buck-style lunches this week:

School Lunch from the 1989 film, Uncle Buck

A can of sardines, a mayonnaise jar full of milk, a banana that is clearly past its prime, raw bacon, and who knows what that slimey green thing is in the Ziplock bag?  Don't judge me -- even if I sent good food in their lunch boxes, my kids wouldn't eat it anyway.  Sometimes, if Anders brings his food home instead of throwing it away, I can get away with sending the same sandwich to school three or four days in a row.  There's not much you can do when the kid won't eat any sandwich other than peanut butter and marmalade, and he goes to a completely nut-free school.

I hope you're all enjoying your Memorial Day weekend and getting everything ready for the coming week.
