Have I gotten too busy and neglected this LJ again?

Yeah. I have.

Finally did close on our house on the 21st of last month. Took a week off after that, since I had the days and we would save some money on day care costs if we started Abby and Jon this week instead of last week.

Abby seems to like her new school, though I don't think Jon likes being dropped off. He screamed yesterday morning, and while it was my first instinct to stay for a bit longer but I had to get going to work, so I did not. Same thing today, though he didn't scream he just cried a bit. Not my favorite part of day care, let me say that.

Have been doing a bit more cooking to save a bit on the budget, made three peach pound cakes in the last couple of weeks. All turned out well, however, I accidentally used 1/2 cup of butter instead of a full cup of butter for my first cake. So, it tasted good, just a bit different. Tasted much better with the full cup in. Richer, obviously. Failed miserably with the peach cobbler recipe I had. It was okay, just not really what I liked. We're going to try with Rachel's mom's cobbler recipe and see if I like that better. I'm planning on making some pseudo-fried rice tonight as I'd like to try out a recipe I found for White/Shrimp sauce...though I think it's a bit strong. The rice vinegar and garlic powder scent that emanated from it was quite powerful. I've done fried rice (sort of) before, and it was edible, so I'll try it again. Last week, made Alton Brown's stove top macaroni and cheese for the kids. They loved the stuff, so I'll have to make it again sometime. Also made some bow ties with Alfredo sauce...wouldn't mind making that again sometime--and I STILL need to dig up a chicken Diane recipe since I've been thinking about that for some time now.

Okay...so now I'm hungry.

Re: Congrats!
Thank you.

Or are you being facetious?
