ben was sick and teething super bad last week and thursday was definitely the worst of it. he was having a really rough day. he couldn't keep anything down and was so sad and so tired and in such pain from teething. i felt horrible the poor little guy. by the time jim got home, i was exhausted and not really thinking straight. i handed over the kids and went to make dinner. i had decided to make a pasta dish with a mornay sauce (which is just a fancy name for cheese sauce) and when you make a mornay, you are supposed to start with a roux. well, in my state of exhaustion, i forgot about that little (extremely important) step and ended up with a terrible, disgusting, sticky mess of cheese. i was almost in tears not only because i messed up dinner, but also from trying to clean it out of the pan. finally, i threw down my ruined dish wand and gave up. jim took over doing the dishes and after a while of him scrubbing i heard him say, "i know!" and run into the basement. he returned to the kitchen and resumed his work. he seemed to be making progress and i was very curious. that's when i walked into the kitchen to find him scraping out the pans with a paint scraper. yes, i had made such an impossible mess that my husband had to do the dishes with a paint scraper. it was a first and, hopefully, a last!
for the remix this week, megan chose this cute vest that she made by cutting the sleeves off of a shirt my sister had given her. i love it. it is a nice, lightweight material, perfect for throwing on over just about anything. and i like that it adds a little ruggedness to an outfit. here's what we each did with it. let us know what you think!
