Sing in the Shower

Oh sweet shower. Some days I have to drag myself in to take a shower. It can be such a pain in the ass. The shower itself feels sooo good, but it’s finding the time to do it that sucks. It’s impossible to take a shower while my daughter is awake. Even if she is happily entertained with Sesame Street, there is no chance. I try to sneak into the bathroom to shower, but she comes in to peek behind the curtain and see what I’m doing within seconds. Usually I wait until nap time, but there are those days where I’m so behind on housework I run frantically around with a laundry basket and bottle of windex the entire time. In other efforts, I try to take a shower at night. You know how that goes. I am so tired and burned out from the day, I just say, oh, screw it I will take a shower tomorrow. And the cycle begins.

I would probably be able to take a midday shower more often if it weren’t for all the grooming you have to complete after. You can’t just shower and be done. Oh, no. You have to put on the eye cream, face lotion, body lotion. Then Qtip your ears, put on deodorant, comb your drippy hair, and put on clothes (bonus points if the match or include a pair or jeans). If you are really ambitious, you may even put on some makeup and dry your hair.

Baby Maya

When you first have a baby, you find it a miracle when you can take a shower. That only happens if someone else is able to sit in direct visual contact with your baby. A mother in law, close friend, or husband will do. If you aren’t a total paranoid freak, or have a baby that doesn’t puke all over herself every three minutes you can shower at your own sleeping baby leisure. That way you can relax, let your huge swollen boobs get some hot water therapy, and wonder how it is you have waited so long to take a shower. Those were the best showers of my life. Oh, and get in a thorough toothbrushing and armpit shave, too. It could be days before you feel this hygenic again.

Recipe of the DayBeef and Bean Casserole

Beef and Bean Biscuit Casserole

  • Can refridgerated buttermilk biscuits
  • small can baked beans, any flavor
  • 1 lb ground round, ground sirloin, or lean ground beef
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4-1/2 cup BBQ sauce
  • small chopped onion

Cook meat in large skillet. When thoroughly cooked, add the baked beans, BBQ sauce, and onion. Mixture should be nice and moist. Add more sauce if needed. Simmer on low heat for ten minutes. While this is happening, preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare an 8×8 or round casserole dish. Seperate the biscuits in half, making 2 thinner biscuits out of each one. Line the sides of your casserole dish with the biscuits. Pour in the ground beef mixture. Place the rest of the thin biscuits on top, and cover with shredded cheddar cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or until biscuits are browned on top.
