Hump Day?

More like, "funk" day.
I used to look forward to blogging. I would lay in bed at night and write all sorts of cute stories in my head. Some of them even landed in my journal.
I'm a huge whiner in my offline life. That's why I like to take a break from that side of me and write about the good things in my online journal(s). I keep saying, "I'll update my journal when I have good things to blog about." Okay, so when the heck is something "good" going to happen? Huh?
Truthfully, there are a few potential good things in the works right now in our life. But just as sure as I mention them, I'll jinx them and I'm just not willing to take that chance.
Let me get the news over with first:
a) I haven't heard from the good doc, yet. I'll email him as soon as I post this update. I just need to know whether or not my gall bladder is a keeper. If it's in good shape, that's great, but I'm back to square one and will continue the quest.
b) Stephen is still sick. Poor, baby. Not sick enough to go to the doctor or to lay around, but sick enough, they would call me to check him out from school because his nose is so runny. Plus, call me overprotective, I just like having my baby by my side when he's not up to par. We believe he has allergies. You know: runny nose, cough, red eyes, etc. However, it was after 1:00 am before he went to sleep last night and hit the ground running at 6:24 this morning. Something is wrong with this picture. He's been pulling at his right ear. I talked to the doc on the phone and he told me to go ahead and give him the Orapred (I think it is) that I have in the fridge to see if that helps the symptoms. If they come back, bring him in and we'll try another allergy med. My gut is telling me to get him in to see the DR. before the weekend.
So, considering I have no good news at the time, let me share something sweet. This is the peanut butter cookie recipe my mama always made when I was little. Even today, every time I make them, I feel like that four year old with no worries who ate them while I sat under the crabapple tree until I became sick.
Mama's Miracle Cookies (there is no flour in this recipe)
1 cup - peanut butter
1 cup - sugar
1 - egg
1 - teaspoon vanilla
Mix all ingredients together, shape into balls, gently press the tops with fork tines that have been dipped in a little water. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. These cookies are so yummy. You'll never miss the flour.  
note: I line my cookie sheet with nonstick foil for easy cleanup. Also, this makes a crunchy cookie. If you like them chewy, add up to 2 tablespoons of water.

Hi sweetie. I hope you hear from the Doc, soon. I hate waiting.

The recipe sounds really good. I have to look, but I think I have a recipe almost like that and it uses Splenda.

Hugs to you and "your baby" :-)
