What I Can Do

But, despite my shortcomings, I am able to do a few commendable things. I can post occasionally (if not for the masses, then for my few dedicated fans who know me best), I can encourage my children in simple crafts (hopefully, more to come on this!), I can parallel park in really small spaces (oops, not so much anymore with a minivan), I can unclog the kitchen sink (where I do occasionally wash ALL of our dishes), I can upload (or is it download?) the pictures off our camera onto the computer, I can bake a delicious batch of cookies (cracking my eggs singlehandedly) and thoroughly enjoy it, I can dream about all the lovely things I'd like to make for my home or family or self, I can sing all the verses to American Pie, I can type a blog entry one-handed while bouncing a baby on my lap, and I think I once carried all three of my children downstairs at the same time (3-story building).
Today, we're snowed in and have already made pumpkin cookies (minus some of the dry ingredients that went flying all over the kitchen when my son turned on the mixer without being told), and have plans to make Christmas ornaments and take a bath. My, what a busy day.
Stay tuned for Christmas ornament pics.

I confirm that you can do all those things and MANY more, not the least of which is that you make your parents proud and happy!

Geez, she is SUCH a mom. Anyway...

Sunday I made some oatmeal cookies for our college crew at church who are away at school, as well as for other friends with whom we hang out. I got the recipe from Cooking Light and it was a big hit. I, too, cracked my eggs with one hand.:)

And now it must be made clear that we have TWO multi-talented daughters who make us proud and happy! Where did you two learn to do the eggs with one hand???

I can't do eggs with one hand.

And I like this post a lot, Megan. Made me smile.

Jess, did you watch "Little House on the Prairie" as a kid? I did, and Caroline (sp?) always cracked her eggs one-handed and I thought that was SO cool. I immediately started practicing (I think I was about 8, and I don't remember any horrible mishaps) and now I do it without thinking. You're already good at so many other things, you really needn't feel pressure to master this as well, but should you put your mind to, I know you would join the one-handed egg-cracking club before long. Megan, I'm not at all surprised that you're in the OHEC Club, though I wonder what inspired you to join and when that was?

Jess, sounds like an egg-cracking survey coming on (call your mom!)

Megan, come on over to My Blog and vote! :-) Your talent seems to be rare!!

You may have to start an online egg-cracking class, too. ;-)
