So, my eighteen year old daughter is having issues; my husband buries himself in what else - sports and work of course! And the dogs and I get to stay home and deal with the teenager, the house and all of life's other messy business. Well, what did I do?
I cooked. I dragged my self with my three curious dogs in tow into the kitchen and cooked until I could cook no more. I blasted my iPod, and baked crusty white bread, then a tasty loaf of a simple sandwich bread, then a sweet and delicious honey whole wheat
bread and then a loaf of rye. When the final loaves were finally risen and in the oven, I started cooking egg salad, (to have for lunches on the sandwich bread) macaroni and tuna salad, and tomato soup, (to go with the crusty white bread).
Are the problems still there? Of course they are! But I don't have to think about what's for lunch or dinner for a while. The dog's drool cleaned most of the floor just outside of my kitchen, and I took out my frustration on kneading a bunch of dough, instead
of on my daughter or husband.
What's even better? Now that I am done with all that cooking, I'm going to be so busy cleaning my kitchen, that I aint even gonna have time to think about anything else; and maybe by the time that's done, my daughter will be through this crisis and on to the
next one, and football season will be over!
