At the 'Rents

by Meghann on April 1, 2010

It’s close to 9:30, I’m sitting on my parent’s couch, and I can barely keep my eyes open – better make this quick!

Why am I at my parents’ house?

Well, that one is easy. I’m heading out of town this weekend for the Crooms 50k (YIKES!) and my parents seem to be the only ones willing to watch Maddie for any period of time. In the past I’ve had one friend send me several e-mails mere hours after dropping Maddie off saying Maddie wasn’t ‘adjusting well’ and would need to be picked up ASAP and after a bad experience a couple of months ago Kelly & Anthony have banned Maddie from their apartment. 🙁

Poor puppy.

Good thing my parents have unconditional love for their grandpup (aka devil dog).


The drive to my parents is awful at night, so I decided to stay the night and head back to Orlando in the morning.

In honor of mine and Maddie’s arrival, Chef Daddy was cooking up a storm in the kitchen when we walked in the door.


He had marinated some chicken wings in an asian influenced sauce and baked them at 350 for 30 minutes or so. I’m not the biggest fan of chicken wings (my Dad thinks I’m crazy because I really do prefer the breast of the chicken), but I did try one.


Dad had also steamed some fresh green beans that I loaded my plate on.


The left over guacamole from lunch made a great topping for my serving of roasted potatoes.


For dessert I had a serving of Peanut Butter Cup Fro-yo with some homemade strawberry-rhubarb sauce and a mini Reeses on top. 🙂


Time to hit the pillow.

Good Night!

Does anyone else have problems finding a dog sitter for their pups?!?
