Blogging under duress

Daughter + 3 are here visiting and she is making me write this meaningless post (all the while standing over my left shoulder). Do I feel as if I'm in prison? Yes, I do. She's making me do this, especially when I'm in the middle of COOKING for tomorrow's big dinner. We are having our "official" Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. Yesterday we ate at daughter's in-laws' house, so today I'm cooking for us for tomorrow.

I've already been chastised because I wanted to make this with yeast that was totally expired (can we say 2003?). She also is making me rewrite this until I tell the truth about the yeast. Bad mama.

So, I'm off to the store to purchase some good yeast so I can make my bread for tomorrow.

In between being poked in the shoulder by daughter, one granddaughter MESSING with my mouse while I'm trying to write, another sitting on my cedar chest begging me (over and over and over again) to help her feed the fish in the fish tank, and baby brother coughing, sneezing, and tooting all at the same time right next to my head -- it's been an interesting afternoon. If there's any typos in this useless blog post, it's all daughter's fault. (Insert daughter laughing hysterically.) I wish she would stop poking me in the shoulder.

I forgot to tell you how we were all awakened at 1:30 a.m. by daughter who plunked baby brother on me all the while dancer girl was puking all over her sister in the other room. Bad grandma -- I probably fed dancer girl too much chocolate last night. Husband was nice enough to wash all the bedding and clothes while daughter bathed her.

Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and didn't exceed your caloric limits too badly. I'm planning on making several pumpkin pies so we should easily exceed ours.

Sounds hysterical :) Can't daughters be a pain in the neck (said most affectionately)? Mine were here bugging me and bossing me around yesterday and today. It was loads of fun :)
I hope DG got over her upset tummy quickly and that you sailed happily through Thanksgiving day with no further mishaps.
You just behave yourself and do as daughter says MK, and all will be well (no one will get hurt).
Thanks Alipurr for stirring your mom up and making her do a post :)

I had a difficult time keeping Motherkitty and Kittenyarn from asking Dancer Girl to try and eat a little more off her lunch plate. I told Dancer Girl to spend the day just hanging out and watching old Disney movies on the Disney Movie Channel.
She also slept the whole night without another incident or an Extra Motherkitty Cookie.

Talk about keeping it real in this post. Too funny, Motherkitty.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

This was hysterical! I hope you're going to be posting a bit more, but first enjoy every moment with those grands! I know you truly love having them!!

She lives!!! Great to hear from you MK!

This post was hysterical, and I loved reading all the add-on comments from Alipurr and Tomas!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Well done, daughter! I'd rather see a post under duress than silence from Motherkitty.

Hope you had a wonderful day together. Families, eh?? There's nothing quite like them, is there?

Way to go Alipurr! Crack the whip, she keeps us all waiting out here in blogland, just for some news, waiting, waiting...

It sounds like you all had a good time (well except for that one episode..), good to hear from y'all again!

That was hilarious! Those daughters can be pesty, I know, but we sure do like having them around, don't we? And the grandkids, too, of course...

This post was hilarious and worth the wait. Way to go'll have to visit more often so MK will post more often.

I'm sure while you were writing the post you two were laughing hysterically. I know I was reading it!

Hope Dancer Girl is feeling better.

I hope you don't mind me saying this post is hysterical and I can TOTALLY relate. The bread looks divine too.

You're gonna love the stew. Cut the carrots REALLY thin, mine came out a tad hard. It was absolutely delish! Enjoy! xoxo
