There is this to be said for taking half a sick day — I finally got my wish list put up on the Christmas site.

Luke, what do you want for Christmas?

I really did try to go to work today.  I got there, I answered email, I tried not to bite anyone’s head off because I was just so amazingly grumpy.  And I sat there staring at my computer telling myself to just look at the stupid drawing and figure it out but I couldn’t get my brain to function.  So I came home.  It really is better for everyone all around this way.  I’ll get more accomplished Friday afternoon then I ever would today.

And hey!  I got my list up.

Justin is sick now, too, which we all knew was going to happen as soon as I wasn’t feeling well.  It’s just the natural progression of things.  Yesterday, I dragged us to the grocery store for flour, milk, and juice, and we came home with a bunch of other stuff, too.  And people at the store kept giving us funny looks, like two people staggering around talking loudly at each other was something unusual.  Just picture us 40 years older and  hard of hearing and everyone would think we were adorable.

Did you know that if you add 1 tablespoon of vital wheat gluten to all purpose flour, you end up with bread flour and your bread is much more fluffy?  I’m just now learning this and the loaf of bread I made yesterday was so tall it hit the glass of the breadmaker.  It was AMAZING.

Yeah, the brain is still not working quite right, is it?  I think it might be time for a nap.


  1. I’m so sorry you’re sick again… gosh you sure have bad luck. 🙁 But good work on the yummy sounding bread! I’m craving homemade bread now…

  2. I don’t make bread much any more, but I might try that trick. Where do you find the stuff?
