Long Live the Queen!

Okay, people, I may have been a douche-bag mom yesterday, but today I more than made up for it.  I was the most kick-ass, totally non-douchey, uber-housewife IN THE UNIVERSE!

Here is everything I did today, in poem form:

Made lunch and breakfast, walked kid to school with dog.
Emptied dishwasher and cleaned kitchen in order to make,
Banana Bread.  But not before I
Stripped the bed to wash the sheets
And ran the Roomba in the bedroom.
While banana bread baked, I made ten small batches
of walnut pesto.  10 small batches because I don't have a
Food processor, only a mini-prep.
Then, I cleaned up after the banana bread and pesto, and decided to make a second loaf of
Banana bread, for a dear friend who lost her dearest dog, and if anyone deserves some lovin' from the oven,
Its her.
Then I made cookie dough, and put in the fridge to chill.
Then my mom took me to lunch, which I totally deserved because I was rocking the free world.
I picked up my offspring from school, and took her to piano lessons.
We came home and rolled out, cookie-cut and baked three dozen sugar cookies in the shapes of ghosts and pumpkins.
We made icing and decorated them.
Then my parents came over for a martini and to see the awesome black widow costume I made for Leila.  I truly am a wonder.
I cleaned the kitchen, put clean sheets on the bed.
Then I made a big bowl of flavorless geletin that will feel like guts at the third grade Halloween party tomorrow.

Now I am in my pajamas, about to pour a well-deserved bucket of wine, dig in to some Halloween candy, and watch some thing mindless on TV, while patting my self on the back, tooting my own horn and singing my own praises.

Tomorrow, I'll probably do something douchey again, but for now I am The Queen.

Thank you, and goodnight.
