OK so last night I remember lying in bed (I did a lot of that yesterday since I wasn't feeling well) anyways I was thinking that I should get up and write a blog. It was about whatever it was I was thinking about. But since I wasn't feeling well I didn't write it, nor did I write down even a few of my thoughts so that I would blog them later. Now (as I knew I probably would) I am regretting my decision to ignore my thoughts~ because of course as you probably guessed I have forgottnen them all together! Man I know it would have been an amazing blog too! I guess I can kinda blame it on the illness! Which I am glad to say was pretty much a one day thing! But I have learned blogging is like my dreams... I rarely remember my dreams when I wake up and so I know that if I want to remember them I need to write them down as soon as I am awake or its gone forever! So I need to do the same with blogging!
So my relief society lesson worked out. Mostly because Emily was prepared. I said a few things but I wasnt feeling well and I pretty much cried the whole time (common for me) and so I don't even know if anyone understood me or if I made any sense! I am glad that we were co-teaching though because like I said I wasn't prepared, and since I wasnt feeling well it worked out in both degrees! So ummmm yeah...
So I learned something about myself tonight.... or have decided on something... I enjoy cooking and quite frequently enjoy trying to make new things and using new recipes. I also enjoy to bake and so again I often bust out my cookbooks and try to bake something new. Well a couple months ago I decided to try making lemon meringue pie. It ended up being lemon meringue soup. The meringue worked well (except it did shrink...ugh) but the lemon didnt set!!! I was so upset and vowed never to try that again! At least not anytime soon and not for dessert when feeding several guests! So that was that. So tonight as I was feeding guests again, one of them requested banana cream pie for dessert. I busted out the cookbook and the recipe was made quite similar to a lemon meringue pie and even suggested using a meringue top. But it also stated you could use whipped cream instead of meringue (whew!) so then I went shopping and stuff... it was getting kinda late and so I got some bana cream pudding/pie mix to use instead to save time. I followed the 3 easy steps on teh side of the box and attempted to make the pies.... they didnt set! So again I served soup instead of pie for dessert! Now I have baked a lot fo cool stuff and decorated some amazing looking cakes.... I can do cheesecake and pumpkin pie... but apparantly other "cream based" pies and I don't get along! So I dont think I will be trying anything like that EVER again! Or at least not any time soon!
At least my dinner and salsa turned out great... if I do say so myself! I fed a total of 14 adults and 4 kids so I feel pretty good about myself. Except of course for the pie thing! Then my twin helped me with dishes and we played some nintendo. Well first we played a lil mario kart on the super nintendo and she whooped my tailgate to shreds! Man i am gonna have to practice that one more often before we do that again! Then we played the regular nintendo. I must say I dominated the wrestling, the tetris and the circus troupe games! I have a lot more experience on those though so I think she was at a disadvantage there! But I learned she is quite a competitive chick! I sitll love her though!
Then it was on to a little piano practice.... I still cant get my rythems down... although it might help if I had taken more time to practice than I have.. I think Ive gotten a little better though. But I am kinda struggling on my newest songs! I hope my teacher doesnt get too frustrated with me at my next lesson! I havent practiced as much as I would like but even so I wish I was doing better! Since my relief society lesson was on individual worth and knowing our own worth I wont say what I want to now about how I feel like a loser sometimes when I am practicing and struggling! But I know its all in time! I just gotta keep going! Well its getting late and this blog is getting long! TTFN!
