I am in a tizzy! Michael's nephew Spencer is arriving on Saturday to spend the summer with us and for some reason I am worried about feeding him. When you only cook for two and suddenly this 6'5" person is dropped in the middle what exactly do you do about food?
When you add a new baby you have time to ease yourself into this, if you have a house guest for a few days you can handle it, especially if they are self entertaining, car driving people. If you have a kid for the summer every rule feels like it goes out the window.
Will I have to start cooking white starches? How much food will I have to get in the house? What in the world will he eat for lunch and breakfast (hopefully he like oatmeal a lot). What are we going to do with him while we are at work?????
On top of all this we have to move out of our place for a week so the landlord can re glaze the bathtub and put the new floors in the two bedrooms. We will be staying with a friend who lives down the street and suffer living on the Stono River for a week (poor us). Michael, myself, Bear the Dog and Spencer. Hopefully Bear decides against chasing the cats which is what he did the last time I brought him down there.
Many hours later after starting this particular blog I am sitting here somewhat calmer. I will make lasagna for dinner on Saturday (I think) since my fantastic Sister in Law better be spending the night rather than driving all the way back to Greensboro NC, I have invited the youngest daughter and boyfriend for dinner so they can meet their extended family. My cookbooks are packed, the bookshelf put away, desk is cleaned off, I went through my shoe collection and either threw out or donated a bunch (the ones I could part with) but best of all tonight is the Earth Wind and Fire concert and I will be meeting JuJu! Thankfully she is the sensible one and thought of texting when we get there so we can catch up. I promise at least one picture tomorrow!
