My mind has been anywhere but here lately. I have been thinking ahead in about 15 different directions. I am trying to get mentally prepared for Homeschooling to start again, and how I am going to find time for it all. Then, I am thinking about Baking with Betty, and leaving my kids for 2 days. To some, this may not sound like a problem, but I have attachment issues. 🙂 It is hard for me to trust someone else to take care of my babies as well as I do. I think I am having a panic attack just typing about it! 😉
Then, everyone around me seems to be having babies lately. I love the little cuties! I have a new nephew, and one of my best friends is due any day. I wish she was closer but her hubby is stationed in Italy. Makes it difficult to stay in touch, but thank goodness for facebook and the telephone. We were talking about babies, and pregnancy the other day. I was telling her how much I loved food while I was pregnant. 🙂 Ok, I know you aren’t supposed to go crazy with food while you are pregnant, but you have to throw caution to the wind sometimes, right?!
In the strange way my mind works, I was thinking desserts, and Italy, and….TIRAMISU! OH, I haven’t had Tiramisu in such a long time! It is one of those things I typically only order out! Not anymore! I came up with a quick and easy Tiramisu anyone can make in under 15 minutes! Pop it in the fridge, and it is ready for dessert! Wanna see?
