Before Christmas, I was busy. Now, after Christmas, I'm still busy. Surprise surprise!

But it's not the same kind of busy. Thankfully this current time of busy is more manageable. When I get busy I usually throw cleaning to the wind. Not because I enjoy living with messes, but simply because, you guessed it, I'm too busy to care!

Truthfully though, my life is not so crazy and hectic and busy as I make it sound, but I do manage to get through each and every hour of every day wishing I had more time!

Today I've been home alone since 8am. I told myself all day yesterday that today I would cleeeeaaannnn. But wait a second, American Idol recorded last night... I had no intention of watching it this year, but it saved my record settings from last season... and since it was there, I had to watch! Long about 10 o'clock I decided enough was enough and if I didn't start now, the whole day would be down the drain.

So I set the timer for 1 hour. And I resolved to not check my email, facebook, phone, anything for sixty minutes. And it worked! I got a ton done! It was so inspirational, I set the timer for another half hour and kept going.

And then since I had done the stuff I don't like so much, I decided to make some granola (because baking I don't consider housework or even work at all. I love to bake... and I love sending it to work with Steve for his co-workers ;) Well, the granola was a big fat flop. Really gross in my opinion. I had never made it before and I'm pretty disappointed. I did learn one thing about making granola though... the flag batch should probably not be enough to feed 10 small children for a year.

I have a lot of gross granola in my house now.

Depressing as that was I decided to make banana muffins. Which are in fact, something I make regularly. I am a banana snob. I love them, but only before they turn all the way yellow. Once they're all yellow I'm just like blech. So they get made into muffins!

Oh! And I took a picture of it. See how my day just flies by when I'm so busy ;)

Gorgeous! I am still loving your china pattern.

We have the same philosophy on bananas. :)

Love this! I'm with you on the banana thing too. Brown slimy bananas make me gag! So funny!
