Does anyone else get stuck in “Mom” mode? Like I have a lot of friends, or I like to think I do. I would say the majority of them also have kids which really has nothing to do with anything, but I love them all dearly. They are my “people”.
But as much as I’d like to say that I make time for my friendships they are so easily forgotten and put on the back burner. It seems like everything else comes before them or I let it come before them. Work, husband, child, cleaning, grocery shopping, laundry, etc. It’s just so easy to let those friendships slip by and pretty soon I haven’t talked to the in a month or more!
Thanks to technology these days it’s a bit easier to keep up with them by stalking them via Facebook. At least Facebook is good for something because it sure doesn’t like my blog anymore. That’s whole other post though!
Lately I’ve been trying to focus more on time with friends and family. I’ve tried to put down the blog. Seriously I’m addicted. I’ve tried to let the cleaning go by the wayside, which really isn’t hard to do because come on who wants to do that?
Last weekend I invited our friends over for supper and we had a fabulous time and then I wondered why I didn’t do this more often? Supper wasn’t a five course meal, my house wasn’t spotless, but we had a wonderful time and none of it mattered!
Earlier in the day my house was packed with both of my nieces and my sister-in-law and it was filled to the brim with laughter and fun. This is what life is about and I need to remember to make time for these people. Why is that so hard?
Ok off my soap box. Please someone tell me they do this exact same thing!
These bars were inspired by my Mom’s Scotcheroo recipe, which I’ve never shared because I think everyone obviously has made this recipe. Am I wrong? Do I need to share it? It’s seriously a staple and the go to recipe in our life. We recently had a Relay for Life Fundraiser and I had to ask people bring pans of bars. I’d like to say I’m pretty sure 3 our of the 7 pans were Scotcheroos and I was like hmmmm ok so that’s excessive. Want to know what? Every. Single. Time. That’s what I had to replace on the tray first. Needless to say we needed all 3 pans of them! It’s a staple around these parts!
Instead of using Rice Krispies I used Peanut Butter Cheerios which are like my new favorite cereal and I skipped the chocolate because well I get sick from it.
But if you want chocolate on top go for it! Not that these needed any…. there were amazing just like this!
