Happy Hump Day, Gang! We survived our big nor'easter. As they predicted, we got just a few inches after a day of intense rain, but my parents got 17" and other areas got over 30"! Nuts.
I made x16 batches of dough yesterday! I love my new big mixer :) I roll it out and freeze it, so that I can just pull it out to cut and bake which is so awesome. But the only problem is that rolling out that much dough wreaks havoc on my arthritis and my hands are completely swollen and sore this morning. I am going to warm up my moist heat mittens and let my hands rest as much as I can today, so we'll call this a day off. Thankfully I dug in early to my schoolwork yesterday and I am waaaaaay ahead for the week. This is definitely going to be my easiest semester. Yay!
QOTD: What song is stuck in your head right now? I have that unbelievably annoying commercial jingle for the drug Skyrizi running through my head. "Things are gettin' clearer · Yeah I feel free ...to bear my skin, yeah that's all me"
Brisket 2.0 was a disappointment. We'll keep trying!
B: protein coffee & egg bites
L: chicken tacos
D: veggie burger with tzatziki on mini naan

Good mornin everyone.
yesterday ended up pretty awful. My mom and me had a pretty big fight. Meaning she screamed at me a lot. She wanted to write the narcotics unit and I wanted to wait to see if he'll do it again. She called her sister to get her opinion and she agreed with my mom of course. I told her I don't know why she even asks my opinion. She screams at me that she has to fight with me too and she's sick of it. Then a little later tells me she doesn't even want to wake up here anymore. Ahhh nostalgia from my childhood. I got pissed which means I cried...A LOT. I do not like being yelled at and manipulated. She acted butt hurt all day until Rachel came over around 3ish. Now she won't have me write to the narcotics unit at all. Mind you I already made a crime stoppers report. I'm over this crap.
Today is a not much of anything day. I have to make some French bread pizzas for my brother and his family along with us. I also need to bake a cake and do the dishes.
QOTD: a version of bittersweet symphony that a friend sent me yesterday. That and down with the sickness...LOL. What a combo.
B: oatmeal and coffee
L: small slice of the pizza
S: cheese, banana and ???
I could never live with my mother. Different reasons than yours but...ugh. At one time she wanted one of us to move into the spare bedroom in her senior apt. That would involve my sister or me selling our houses and moving our spouses, pets, and all our crap into her 1100 sq ft apt, or leaving our spouses, pets, and all our crap behind so we could live in her spare bedroom. And no way my brother would leave North Carolina. We'd have to dynamite him out. Then she suggested she move in with one of us. Ah...no. I couldn't take the constant, subtle complaining and the equally subtle manipulation tactics. I love my mother but....just no. Sorry you have to deal with this.

Good choice, Trish.

The only thing that keeps me from moving my mother in my house is her smoking. Life would be so much easier if I didn't have to run over and take care of her. But she gives me no choice. Good luck sorting things out with your mom Mel.

My mom wouldn't move in because I have too much purple in my house.

LOL. My mom because it's no smoking in the house. Last time she was here, when DS was born, she would smoke on the deck. At one point DD who at the time was 4 asked why is Nonna in time out all the time and can she go out keep her company while in time out?
