This week has been…tough. A couple of weeks ago, I went to my boss and did the craziest thing I may have ever done – I offered to do way more work than I’m paid to do. I think I had some sort of breakdown, or an alternate personality surfaced, or controlled by government aliens. I basically said, “You know how I’m completely overwhelmed by my current job responsibilities? I think everything might be easier if I took on some extra work!” See? CRAZYTOWN. So, that all started on Monday and I ended up logging a bunch of overtime (a bunch = any at all).
On top of that, my guy was out of town this weekend. He left on Friday. I’ve been home alone with the boys since they got off the bus. All the stuff in the previous paragraph about work being insanely stressful? I’m REALLY looking forward to getting back to it. I am exhausted in a way I don’t think I’ve ever been before. I don’t want to go to sleep yet because it’s actually quiet and I’m basking in silence.
In The Kitchen is a sporadic (word of the day!) column featuring what we’re eating and making. Warning: Your ass may get fat. But in an awesome way.
This weekend has been a total shitshow and I don’t want to even try to process it at this time. So, I went to my happy place, Pinterest. I found a pin for Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies and figured that amount of chocolate would make me feel better.
The recipe is simple – brownies, chocolate chip cookies – but because you’re making two things, it takes a little longer and needs some pre-planning to get everything together on time. Is it worth it? After a day like today, after a weekend like this, after a really hard week? Absolutely.
