...and her trials of dealing with a working mom

I'm Baaaack

Ugh... what a roller coaster I've been on.  Training for a new job, trying to figure out a schedule for Ainsley and I, and maybe doing something occasionally to keep my sanity equals no internet time.  Which actually helps my sanity.  But anywho...

I interviewed for another job that pays 10K a year than my current one.  This may should ridiculous, but I think making more would make it a little easier to leave Ainsley every day.  At least I would feel it's more justified.  And if I don't get this position, I'm hoping to change my current job hours from 8 to 5 to 7 to 4.  It would give me some time to play with Ainsley and maybe make a decent dinner more often than I am now.  I'm typically a winter kinda gal... I like dark dreary days.  Makes me want to snuggle up and read a book.  However, I'm really looking forward to summer this year.  More daylight so I can take Miss A to the park and we can work in the yard a little bit.  I have a long list of projects I need to do with her too.  Thank you pinterest....

This evening I did get a chance to cook a little.  I won't tell you about the chicken.  It's not even worth typing about.  The mashed potatoes I tried were awesome though.  Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures.  I do have some of Miss Ainsley though!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 oz crumbled feta cheese
5-6 medium Idaho potatoes
5 cloves of garlic, peeled ( I always use WAY more garlic than any recipe calls for)

Peel and cube potatoes.  Put in saucepan with garlic.  Cover with water and bring to a boil.  Once boiling, reduce heat and cover.  Simmer for 15 minutes.  Drain, put in large mixing bowl.  Add remaining ingredients and mash.

  1. She is absolutely precious and the potatoes sound fabulous! So far so good with the cleanse diet but I'll keep you posted after day 7 :)
