Caffeine, Cookies, and Kate

It's been quite the week at the Angry House. We had our theme park week. Angry Husband helped my crazy aunt move. I came down with a slight kidney/bladder infection. I worked. And it was HOT! Seriously hot!

My mind has not been good lately. I have my hands in too many cookie jars, and I'm trying to piece it all together. I need to really cut down on some of it. But the worse part of my summer is coming to an end. You see, I've been working the swing shift at work. What is the swing shift? For me, it's Friday through Monday, from 4pm to 2:30am. Blah! Do you think I go to bed when I go home? Do I eat properly? Do I work out? NO! I have sacrificed everything the past four months. I realized this last Fall, when I worked the swing shift last time. My workouts completely stopped, and I drank way too much caffeine. So alas, tonight is my last night shift, and I'm squeeing with happiness. I get to have dinner at a normal time, sleep at a normal time, and hopefully I won't be as grumpy.

I'm going to try and organize my life back this week. Hopefully, I can. Our house is a DISASTER zone, I have random bags filled with paperwork that I need to go through. And I need to purge Angry Toddler's closet. I think our trash can is going to be very very full.

So I went to the grocery store earlier today with Angry Husband. This is what I bought, the newest People magazine, a Monster, and Lofthouse Cookies. These are probably the only store bought non-bakery/non-homemade cookies that I will eat. They are FABULOUS!!! Oh, and I got the magazine, because yes, I'm following the drama! It's like a trainwreck that I cannot stop watching!

So hopefully, in the next week or so, I can get back to being normal. Plus we have no swim lesson for two weeks. That makes a big difference in trying to get things done around here!


  1. Oh, I love those soft sugar cookies!!!! mmmmmm.....

    I may have to get that magazine too. Shhh! Don't tell anyone though.

  2. I heard about the crazy hot temps in Southern California...I don't deal well when it gets over 100.

  3. What exactly does squeeing sound like? Congrats on being through with swing shift by the way!

  4. I heard someone once call those cookies, "cupcake cookies". Must agree. Super soft and yummy.

  5. I know what you mean...It must be hard to get back on track after the swing shift. Cut back on the Monster;)

  6. yum, I want those cookies. the frosting is super thick and the cookies are perfectly crip but soft. (whatever that means)

    i like People, but I can't bear to hear another story about Jon OR Kate.

    I hope those kidneys are feeling better! sounds painful!

  7. Those are the BEST cookies EVER! I love them and have a hard time passing them up when I see them...I can't stop eating them!!

  8. I freakin' love Lofthouse cookies. They are pretty evil and I think they taste like birthday cake. Glad to hear the swing shift days are coming to an end. Sorry about the infections, though. Sucky.

    You'll get back into the workout groove. Wanna aim for the Surf City 1/2 in Feb? I'm planning to come out for that event.


Thank You for taking the time to comment on my blog. I really appreciate it. At least I know that someone in my life actually agrees with me.
