Fuzzy head= Bad bread
I haven't been sick for a long time, so I can't really complain...but having a cold makes being a Mom (or a functioning person, for that matter) difficult. Last night, as I rushed to make dinner, pick up Hannah from the YMCA's after school club, and make cinnamon rolls for Hannah's snack day at school, and head off to make curly hair bows at a friends' house, something had to slip my mind. The first thing--I totally forgot that the whole reason I put Hannah in the after school club was that every Wednesday afternoon Rachel has speech therapy--which she badly needs and I have fought hard to get--and I simply forgot and didn't go yesterday. The other, mildly important thing...while making bread, I forgot to put in sugar. I didn't realize it until the cinnamon rolls were baked and iced. Fortunately, they still rose beautifully and when covered in sugar and icing they taste sweet enough...and I guess its better than leaving out the yeast, which I have done twice this winter. Bread without yeast doesn't work much better than a Mom with a cold.
