i'd like to say one thing more about pain pills and pain, and then i'll shut up. promise. this was told to me by our doctor, and also by more than one nurse: holding off taking pain medication, allowing the pain to build up, makes it much harder for the pain pill to do its job. taking the pain medication before the pain becomes unbearable, then maintaining a level of tolerable pain is a much more effective way to go. you actually use medication more efficiently this way--that is, less of it, and probably save yourself a great deal of suffering as well....

SO has been baking and I have been right behind her trying to keep up with washing the pans, cooling racks, mixing bowls. (...and a roasting pan from Friday. Ooops)

Shrek is nodding off to the TV...Me? I'm waking him up to ask him if he's done watching TV and why doesn't he just go lay down...the football pre-pre-pre-game shows are ridiculous!

Absolutely! I have primary quality control responsibility. Today's anise cookies and eggnog cookies were both excellent.

Dad taste tests all the regular baking (though I have to watch his sugar levels) and DH of course is quality control on the gulten free items.

Yesterday Dad had to taste one each of the five shapes of whipped shortbread I made with the new cookie press....had to make sure they were all the same! Thankfully the sugar content was low.

Watching Come Dine With Me, drinking cider, waiting to reheat my homemade tomato soup for my dinner, and cook mum and her hubby pasta and cheese, mum's craving apparently! Bad sign! ;)
