Let 'em Eat Cake

Will there be cake?
If not, when was the last time you had a birthday cake?

In what thrilling manner should I celebrate my birthday next week?

Is your life as interesting as you'd like it to be?

Most of the time
About half the time
Not most of the time, but it has its moments

Kids or no kids?

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is having their induction ceremony celebration this Saturday. Free admission, lots of live music and activities for both kids and adults, and then fireworks at 8. Sounds awesome, right? Well, originally, my husband and I were going to drop the kids off at my parents' house and go just the two of us. But then I looked at the website and saw all the kids stuff and now I'm not sure. My kids are 5 and 7, and while they would appreciate the kids stuff, they won't appreciate it like we appreciate rock music. Also, they go to bed around 730 so they'll be cranky if we stay late. Also, being there for a minimum of 6 hours with them makes me cringe a little. So, tqc, should I take them and have a family day or be selfish and go see the stuff I want instead?

ETA: Thanks everyone who commented! We ended up dropping the kids off, and good thing we did - my parents had plans to take them to the zoo! Hope everyone has a good night tonight!

Hi guys,

Do you think that a casserole containing cooked chicken breast, a sauce made of butter/flour/stock/mustard, and cauliflower, topped with mashed potatoes, would freeze well?

Favorite meals to make and freeze? (Recipes appreciated!)

Medical Question

Collapse )

Can thyroids heal themselves?
If I was misdiagnosed, why did I respond to the medication so well, and why am I having these symptoms?
Wouldn't there have been some side effects deeming the medication unnecessary and dangerous to my health?!
Have you ever had something like this happen to you?

I'm going to wait for the follow-up with the doctor before I decide whether or not to go for a second opinion. I was just wondering if any of you had any ideas about what is going on.

Edit: I would like to add that my grandmother shared that she went through a similar thing when she was younger.

TQC, I recently had major oral surgery and I am on a very soft/liquid diet for at least a week more. that being said, I am now quite sick of eating soup and applesauce.

do you have any suggestions for other foods I could eat during this time period? I don't own a blender, and I don't like cottage cheese. anything else is fair game.
