Graduation Season

I know, I know, you feel like this...because you didn't hear from me yesterday. I'm truly sorry, but I've been horribly busy. I achieved my blog-30-days-in-a-row goal (32!), so it will be okay.

Yesterday was super busy. I got up early to drive an hour to this goofy kid's kindergarten graduation. Congratulations, sweet nephew of mine! Then I ran some errands, helped my mom with some lawn work, spent another hour in the car, made THREE batches of homemade ice cream, whipped up a batch of cookies, baked a strawberry pie, thoroughly cleaned my disaster house well enough to show to potential buyers, went grocery shopping, searched the town for a new outfit, returned overdue library books and paid my fine, painted my toenails, watched Up with John, and basically ran around like a crazy woman all day long. I confess, I used the T.V. as a babysitter. Don't tell anyone.

The cooking part of my day was for this goofy girl's graduation party! My little sister is all grown up and graduating from college! Congratulations, Courtney!!!

I ended up making all the ice cream for her party because ice cream makers are apparently easily broken. The ice cream making was going to be divided up between three people, but of three ice cream makers in the family, two of them were broken. That seems weird. Do ice cream makers break a lot? Anyway, I took the only working one and made three batches of SCRUMPTIOUS homemade JENELLEmade ice cream. My mom thought I volunteered because I am her most sweet and helpful daughter, but really I volunteered because I thought there would be leftovers for my robe and ice cream diet plan. Alas, because I am an ice cream genius and a superb chef (or possibly because of the heat and humidity) there was very little left for me to pig out on. The greedy graduation party guests gobbled it all up. SAD.

As far as I know, I don't have a graduation to attend tomorrow, but I'm too tired to remember.
