I woke up at 5 am. NO HEADACHE. HOLY CRAP I FEEL GOOD I'M GOING TO GET THINGS DONE.

Drove to store to get missing ingredient for cake because dammit I'm making cake, no headache in days!!!

Bought wrong missing ingredient

Thunderstorming outside, too bad, I'll make the missing ingredient FROM SCRATCH

Hey this turned out pretty good

Cake is in oven

leaving the dishes for a kid to clean up because I earn the money around here and I cook for people too dammit (before you get mad, "clean up any dishes that didn't fit in the dishwasher" is a standard kid chore, and they're teenagers)

Made out massive to-do list because TYPE A HOMIES (I know the correct catchphrase has the B-word in it but I don't like that word)

let me repeat: NO HEADACHE. I haven't posted about it but I had one for 3-4 days there, I lost track.

Yay for feeling better!

I am also making cake today. I bought a bag of Meyer lemons and need to use them before they rot. That or zest and juice them and make lemonade. Will have some left after the cake so may need to.

I need some teenagers to do my dishes.

It feels SO GOOD to not have a headache and to have energy!

I have our lemons in the fridge - we really are torn what to do about them. I hate to just use them for lemonade, you know? I'm thinking maybe lemon pie for mother's day/father's day? Yes, we've kept lemons that long, it's do-able. Or maybe Easter since that's sooner. (I have a plan for sort of an Almond Joy cake but that's not dependent on seasonal fruit!)

It seems like we use a *lot* of mixing bowls, large bowls, etc that take up the top rack of the dishwasher so fast. I'd rather make the kids wash those by hand and use the dishwasher for actual dishes and glasses and so on.

A couple of people suggested I make a Shaker pie with the lemons, but that involves pie crust. Still, I could use a store-bought one. Pie crust is one thing I've tried but not yet conquered, and also really don't have the counter space for. I only used 3 lemons, and have 6 or so still to use. I'd make lemon bars but I need more eggs.

My dishwasher is my drying rack, so sometimes I have to nest the mixing bowls a bit for them to all fit.

I could make my own pie crust, but store-bought is so darn convenient... and everyone likes it...

As a fellow (or sister if you prefer XD) headache sufferer, I have one word: MIRACULOUS.

I don't like the B word either. Everybody throws it around so casually, like it isn't a misogynistic word, and in a day and age of allegedly heightened awareness of sexism. Huh?

I hear you! I honestly feel like I could conquer the world because NO HEADACHE. Mom asked if I wanted to find a new doctor, but I know the causes of my headaches (hormones and weather) and there's nothing I can do about the second one, and only time will take care of the first one.

The B word: I'm just... did everyone forget that it's a very insulting word? I hate seeing it *everywhere* nowadays. Yet people use it to refer to friends and... eesh.
