Curse you, egg bake.
For years, we've made an egg casserole for Christmas morning breakfast. It's nothing special---eggs, cheese, sausage, bread, milk, and just a dash of cardiac arrest.
I made it this year, as always, and we all ate honking slabs of it after we opened our presents.
Then, about an hour later, my stomach twisted, and I gave the toilet a present she wouldn't soon forget. (Of course our toilet is a girl--only a girl would put up with so much shit.)
"Too much coffee," I though to myself, and moved on with my day.
This morning, I woke up with a headache. "A little coffee should help with this," I thought.
Coffee--the cause and solution to all my problems.
Later on, after a morning including Owen wetting the bed, requiring the full strip-down, and Joel's screeching demands of "CRAC-KER! CRAC-KER!" (I really need to remind that boy that we live south of the Mason-Dixon line...) I sent the boys outside to cluck at Jimmy's chickens and decided that I should have something besides coffee for breakfast.
Cue leftover egg bake.
God, I'm dumb. I'll spare you the details this time.
I officially declare this to be the Egg Bake from Hades. Next Christmas, I'll have Paul make a nice spinach and mushroom frittata.
In other news, I'm evaluating this blog and would appreciate your feedback:
1) I'm thinking of posting less often--like three-five times a week. I've made it a goal in the past to post daily. Is less more?
2) What do you think of the format/design? I will not pay anybody to change it up, because we get to spend all our discretionary funds on a new oxygen sensor for the Subaru, instead. Harrumph. Anyway, do you have suggestions about what I could do regarding the pictures, colors, etc?
3) What about the name? I've changed it a whole bunch of times, and consistency is good. However, I don't want people to think I'm that Maya Rudolph movie, either.
You may notice I've...
*Removed my last name, in the event that it matters someday.
*Acquired a button, thanks to Unknown Mami.
*Changed my status picture to this arty shot my brother took several years ago:
I don't look too much different, but in the spirit of full disclosure, it is over ten years old. To be totally fair, this is what I look like most of the time:
Thanks for your suggestions!
