a day that should be scrapped

One of those days… A day that just plain sucks for no particular reason… A day where your son takes forever falling for his nap, and you pass out with him for about 3 hours in mid afternoon, and when you wake up the daylight is over, dinner is not made, baby is hungry, husband will be back any minute and you still feel completely crappy.

Oh yeah, it also is a statutory holiday. Meaning that everything is closed. Any thought about doing something that comes to your mind is an automatic no-no. Library? Closed… Community center? Closed… Shopping? Closed… And of course your husband is one of the few people in the country working a full regular day… So much for family fun...

So you figure yesterday’s leftovers will mostly do. But just in case, you make a half-hearted attempt at a soup, and call it a day.

And tomorrow better be better. I mean it.

Sorry to hear you had a blah day - hope today is better!

If it makes you feel better, my attempt at dinner last night consisted of spreading some beans and cheese over a tostada and calling it a day. Your soup is gourmet by comparison!

Dinner was like that in our house last night!

Wow. You, like, totally described my day on Monday. To the letter.

Tuesday was a bit better. Wednesday, meh.

I'm a 29 year old mom of two! A toddler (kiddo one) and a new baby (kiddo junior). I am also the most horrible (as in I barely ever do it) cook that I have met in my life. This blog is a diary of my attempts to feed my hungry growing family

PS: My name is not actually Vasilisa... But I find that honest reporting comes easier when there is a shred of anonymity. (Apparently, posting pics of my sons doesn't count...)

PPS: For those of you wondering where on the planet I am: I'm cosily tacked away in the Torontonian suburbia of the Great White North (Canada).

The Beginnings

What is all this?


To music, naturally.


All kinds of books. Haven't figured out how to post links to them yet.
