I am home sick from work today. I have a terrible cold. Yesterday I still went to my Grandma's birthday party, because I thought I just had a sore throat due to allergies. By the time I got home around 5:30, I was feeling awful! Anyway, I'm home today nursing the cold. I guess the upside is that I can watch the Olympics all day! I feel a bit guilty because B left at 7:30 this morning to travel to the U.P. (upper peninsula, MI) with his boss. I was so out of it last night, that I went to bed early and didn't really get up long enough this morning to wish him a good trip. Oh how I hate being sick!!! He's driving now, so I won't hear from him until tonight. :(
So, the cookies I'd planned for the party yesterday? I know I shouldn't have attempted to make a new recipe, and I was right! The recipe said to put the dough I made on Friday in the fridge for a day. Then the recipe said to roll out the dough and step by step put the cookies together. I couldn't even roll it out, it just crumbled everywhere! I was so mad at myself, because I had nothing to bring. Thankfully, my mom had cookies to bring and there was a cake. I don't know what I did wrong when making the dough? I guess I learned a lesson to never make a new recipe when I'm expected to bring something to a party.
Other than the cookies and my new cold, I had a fun weekend with friends and family! I hope you all did too!
