Commencement was all-consuming.
I did no cooking all week. I couldn't even bring myself to cook this weekend. Maybe I will recover sometime this week. Maybe not. Thank goodness for graduation party invites.
If I had been able to get off my ass yesterday, I would've made these biscuits. Instead, The Help went to Jack In The Box and got me a biscuit sandwich. It was awful. If I hadn't been so lazy. . .
Actually, I don't think I was lazy. I think I was tired. Super tired.
Graduation was long. It had to be. The broadcasting demanded it. I'm sure if I had a child graduating this year, the length would've been a minor irritation. Unfortunately, every minute matters when you're wearing heels and standing for the entire evening.
Remind me not to take this beast on next year.
