What is that saying, “When it rains, it pours?” No kidding. I thought my life was busy and hectic when I worked 60+ hours in an advertising agency. That’s B.C. – Before Children. My job as “Mom” really is 24/7. But, I love it. That’s what I signed up for. Tomorrow I take off with my friend Lori, a.k.a. Recipe Girl, and head out to Big Bear and Camp Blogaway. This will my first time weekend away from the hubby and kids. YIKES! Not to mention that this is the first blogging function I’ve ever attended. SWEET!
I haven’t had a chance to think about it too much since a million other things are going on in our lives. A big Cub Scout camping trip is this weekend, too, and I had to plan and shop for the camp dinner and it’s 90 hungry campers even though I wasn’t going. The Professor had his 10th birthday and a science project. We made a Root Beer Float Bundt and a “lava lamp.”
Middle-Child got sick on me with his allergies, again, and the Princess caught croup. There was a fishing trip mixed in there (no fish caught) and Easter with friends. Kids were doing the state’s standardized testing at this time, too. There’s the gardening, volunteering at school and I could on and on. But, I’d rather talk about the Root Beer Float Bundt.
I saw this cake on the blog, Piece of Cake. I fell in love! I made it the same day for the Professor and his friends. They had seconds. Yes, it was that superlicious good. It’s also super easy to make and is one of those one-bowl-gets-dirty kinda cakes. You can find the recipe here.
I upped the sugar factor and served it with a glass of root beer. It’s a birthday thing, you know.
Now I must return to food shopping, laundry and packing. I can’t wait to meet some more bloggers and chill out in Big Bear. It should be a beautiful weekend and I hope to learn a lot.
Have a great weekend!
