The cookie dough thinger

Last night Kat and her friends went to a dance. Afterwards, they came home and had a party. A big party – 4 girls, lots of noise, doggy help, and even doing some cooking at 3:30 in the morning. Bob and I were talking about it. And he asked what they were cooking and I replied I didn’t know. But they were using “The cookie dough thinger”. As you can tell I was a bit sleepy. Bob knew what I was talking about and started immediately teasing me about it. Sent out a text to lots of people.

Answer one: “the raw cookie dough in the freezer or the baking pan” received within a minute from one daughter
Answer two: “the hand held egg beater or the oven or the fridge” dragged out of a sleepy kid
Answer three: “Something that presqueezes the dough into balls for you?”

All wrong. The correct answer was kitchen aide mixer. And now we have a new term “THE CDT” And best of all, the kids were not even cooking last night, I probably heard a hair dryer or some other such thinger running in the wee hours of the morning.

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
