Domestic Goddesses, Assemble!

I realize that the little Domestic Goddesses blog has been neglected. So I started posting some mroe recipes there, and maybe I'll throw in some amusing anecdotes about my daily struggle to keep my apartment clean (despite living with two children, some fish, a cat and a husband). Are my other Domestic Goddesses doing anything interesting that you'd like to share?

We had Will's celebratory weekend this past weekend, taking him to see Cars which was very cute, but at 117 minutes, a bit long for a kids' movie. Alex was very rambunctious. If you go, stick with the movie through the credits. Pixar always throws fun stuff in at the end. Larry the Cable Guy was hilarious as Mater, Owen Wilson was lots of fun as Lightning McQueen, and Paul Newman was sweet and gruff as Doc Hudson. We also had a pizza lunch and he got a video game from us and from my mom, so I think he's pretty happy with life as he knows it. ;-)

Alex is determined to ride out the 'Terrible 2s' to its bitter end, with a lovely screaming fit in Bed Bath & Beyond yesterday. Sigh... serenity now... He did some yoga poses with me yesterday - now, if only the Zen bit would kick in for him!

It's definitely a 3-cup of coffee morning. And I've only had 2. Bleah.

I don't know why I haven't been feeling like running out to see cars... I always love pixar, this one just hasn't been grabbing me...

It wasn't one I would have run out to see either, to be honest. It was cute, but I probably would have waited for cable if I didn't have the boys.

The short at the beginning wasn't bad, but I've liked their past stuff better, too.

We have been waiting for cars for weeks! Duckyboy loved it, length and all. I think we "felt" the length more than he did, he was ready to sit through it again. Cute story though!

LOL, you're probably right, Janice! How was your vacation? It was a cute story though; I really liked Paul Newman's "Hudson" character.

I'm posting some non-cooking stuff...
