But if the world ends today... then none of that matters!
Actually the Stern German and I have big plans for tonight... first a cocktail party at my parents' assisted living place (starts at 5:30... everyone will be ready to go to bed by 6:30)... then we are going to meet up with some friends for a night out.
We don't really do stuff like that... well, mostly because we really don't have that many friends! Yay for us... not for not having that many friends... but for going out.
Now I'm ready to tell you the five highlights of my week... there were actually quite a few... so I'm not positive these are the top five... but they were pretty good.
1. The Grand Boy helped me bake some cookies... and he's getting good at it.
When I told him we were making chocolate cookies... he smiled... when I told him he was going to roll the balls of cookie dough in powdered sugar... he shuddered with excitement.
That kid discovered a great love of powdered sugar the week we made Puppy Chow. He would lick his finger and stick it in the bin... repeatedly.
We made my bloggy friend Michelle's cookies from her post last Friday... Check out the recipe here. She calls them Chocolate Pixie Cookies... they are pretty delicious.

|Pretty sure that's chocolate...|
It's always good to have a plan... even if several of the nights we go out for margaritas!
Some of the items are:
Wild Rice Soup
Tacos3. We survived our first snow day of the season.
I was kind of surprised that school was cancelled... it didn't seem that bad out.
I was trying to think of something that the Angsty Teen and I could do with my legally blind, geriatric, bariatric father... so I baked up some cut-out sugar cookies and made up a few containers of colored frosting.
4. The Angsty Teen took a nap on her first snow day of the season.

|Those are paint sticks for a five gallon bucket of paint.|
That's kind of a big car...
