Yes, that's right. Because I can.
Have you seen Katie's Matsutake 2012 Awards? They're genius, like Katie herself. Go see them, and then give yourself an award. I picked this one because it sums up my low-aiming goals for each day. I'm not saying I made dinner last night, even. I'm saying sometime last week - or maybe it was last month - there might have been a non-takeout pizza, actual meal made in my kitchen.
And -let's face it - we all have those days. Mine seem to happen every time I am working on some craft thing. I usually make peace with myself by announcing that "cooking repetitive meals using cream of mushroom soup is not my especial gift". But Katie has brought a sense of solidarity to this slowly-freaking-out-on-my-own existence, so I salute her back with this award,
along with the rest of you guys! For reading my blog, for sending me cardboard box sources, for not saying I'm a bad mother because I stayed up several nights in a row reading the Hunger Games books, for telling people about me on your blogs, while simultaneously omitting the words "raving lunatic", for making me laugh and smile and sew things I would ordinarily never dream of sewing, like ruffles.
P.S. Katie, I didn't get any top mom craft blog awards, either. Didn't you read the fine print? They said we had to be sane.
P.P.S. Did you notice it's dinner time now and I'm blogging instead of cooking?
