Although I have a freezer full, a stocked pantry and an over-flowing fridge, tonight I'm ordering Chinese for dinner. Why?

Why not!

Seriously, I'm ordering it for a plethora of reasons. Let's review, shall we?

  1. It's been one HELL of a day with the boys and my patience has been wrought to extinction
  2. It's 102 outside. To grill the chicken would cause the door to be opened/closed repeatedly which will make the AC run an exorbitant amount and heat up the inside of the house.
  3. It's 102 outside. To bake the chicken inside would require using the oven which will heat up the inside of the house making the AC run an exorbitant amount of time.
  4. It's 102 outside, who really wants to do anything at all other than to sit beneath a ceiling fan and count freckles on your arm while sipping a tall glass of iced sweet tea.
  5. Did I mention my kids were driving me crazy?
  6. While I'm writing this, Ben is in his playpen screaming and grunting and whining and pouting and I'm sure throwing the entire contents of said playpen into the walkway in my room.
  7. I'm getting blood work done tomorrow and I can't eat anything after 7pm tonight until I'm sure around lunch tomorrow... I deserve it.
  8. Cause I can... so I did.

The heat makes me want to DIEEEEEEE.

Hope you enjoyed your Chinese. My family ate cereal and sandwiches.

Because I am wife and mother of the year. ;)
