Life In the Fast Lane...

The times, they are a-changin. And if you can sing along to that opening line, you are getting old too. I was in Joann Fabric with a friend today when the song "Get Down On It" came on in the muzak version. So we danced and sang and wondered when did we get old enough that the best roller skating song ever ended up on the muzak list. I heard a commercial on the radio for a new restaurant that should probably remain nameless advertise "Remember the grilled cheese sandwich that mom used to make for you? In today's hectic life, slow down and stop in for a grilled cheese. Or the specialty, sloppy joes with a slice of cheese on it. So good you'll come back for more." When did life get so busy that we have to go out to eat to get a grilled cheese sandwich to remind us of home? I want my kids to know what home cooked food is, even if it is grilled cheese and sloppy joes, which both happen to be a staple in my house. I let Connor help me make an apple pie today. I was so proud as he unrolled the pie crust from the red box and laid it gently on the pie plate that used to belong to my grandma. Hey, it's a start.

  1. Your homemade pie crust comment cracked me up. You know, I should just buy that kind in the red box, unroll it, sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on it and I bet it would be as good as mom made! I am working on a post--thanks for checking. Just so crazy busy. Thanks for the prayers!
