Now I know....

I'm trying to be more conscious of the time I spend on the computer. I told myself that could run down to the computer and do that cupcake post in 20 minutes. I was so sure that it would only take 20 minutes that I didn't set the timer on the toaster oven.

When I finally hit publish, I realized that I had been on the computer for an entire HOUR (this time). "No wonder I'm hungry", I thought, "It's two o'clock." ...."Oh no! I'm cooking!!!".....


This used to be a Grilled Vegetable French Bread Pizza and I'm now eating yogurt.

As my dad always said, "Stay in the kitchen when you're cooking!" I guess I'm still rebelling. I'll add my own tidbit. When you're blessed to have kitchen appliances with timers.... use the timer!

Now I know it it didn't take 20 minutes, it took an hour...

OK, this is scary, because this is exactly what I would do. We just got a new gas range, but it doesn't have a timer. I do stay in the kitchen most of the time, but I have found myself running down to the computer to check email...I will follow your lesson, and stay in the kitchen.
