Yep. Jack’s home sick with croup and a wicked fever. He wasn’t very hungry until after the Motrin kicked in. I decided to make the most wicked pancakes ever. Want the recipe?
Jack: Mom, these are the best pancakes ever! Well, I haven’t tried them yet but when I do I know they’ll be the best.
Here’s the Pancake recipe (I’ve posted it before… But what the heck.)
Mix dry ingredients…
– 1 cup flour
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
– 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Then add wet:
– 1 + 1/3 cup milk (any kind…)
– 1 beaten egg
– 2 tablespoons melted butter
– 1/2 teaspoon real vanilla
Mix only until blended and largest lumps are gone. Use a pretty hot griddle. I set mine for 350 and flip them when the bubbles rise to the top. Yum!
So…we finished eating pancakes and sat on the couch to watch Star Wars. Episode 4. Again.
I noticed something out of the corner of my eye. It was black and moving quickly. I jumped back and realized it was one of the wolf spiders that lived in our Christmas tree. I had forgotten about them. I had found a few dead ones after I stopped watering the tree and thought they were all gone. This one landed on the table and literally turned to look at me and then backed slowly away. Yeesh.
Okay I’m gonna get back to the boy with the fever and the 59th episode of Good Luck Charlie.

As I was looking up to see what a wolf spider looked like, a box elder bug landed on my arm.
I nearly threw my laptop in the floor and now I feel like they are crawling all over me. haha…
Tell Jack we all hope he gets well soon, but not so soon that he doesn’t get to watch all of the Star Wars movies and Good Luck Charlie… 😉
Thanks! I told him what you said and he’s like “people can talk to me from your blog???” You officially blew his mind. Lol! And funny about YOUR bug story!
“people can talk to me from your blog???” — oohhh Jack there’s so much you don’t know hahaha!!!
I’m waiting for the day that he reads ALL of this… :O
