Do you like Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain?

Trivia #1: The actual title of that song is "Escape," not "The Pina Colada Song."

Trivia #2: That is what I want to do today.

For real. I just want to pack my bags, leave a note and catch the first plane to somewhere that's not here.

I don't really have a good reason. The kids were fairly normal today. Will hasn't made me want to gouge his eyes out lately. I just woke up sick of everyone and everything. I could easily see myself living totally alone in a secluded beach cottage, never speaking another word to anyone (blogging, maybe, but not speaking) and being totally O.K. with that. Tomorrow may be a different story, but as of today, I want to escape.

In other news, this post was supposed to be a recipe. I made chicken in mushroom and wine sauce last night. I took pictures of the process. I even put my ingredients in cute little dishes. But, alas, I'm no Annie Liebovitz. The pictures are kinda crappy, and after all that preparation the dish basically ended up tasting just like Ikea's $3.99 Chicken Marsala.

The final product

And I have to wonder if the alcohol didn't cook out quite as much as I thought it did. It's the only explanation I have as to why I thought it would be a good idea to post a rather large picture of my rather large (And flat. And square.) butt last night.

So, anyway, if you don't hear from me for awhile you'll know that I took the leftover cooking wine and hopped a plane to an undisclosed location.

  1. It looks good assuming you like mushrooms which I don't. :) Did it go over well with the fam even if you were overly critical of the dish yourself?

    I totally want to be at the beach without the pina colada or rain (I'm more of a daiquiri girl). I will be meeting a friend I haven't seen in years for margaritas though so that'll do tonight. I'm definitely sick of everything. I need a mental health day! Join me?

  2. Well, it didn't *look* appetizing, but I know it was I had my husband make it for dinner.

    Yes, he makes the bacon...and fries it up in a pan.

  3. I know why you want to escape today. It's because you spent the morning at EAMC. It's that dark vortex thing I mentioned when I saw you in the pharmacy. If you go near it, it just swallows up your whole day, even when you think you've broken free from the tractor beam. (I'm trying to speak BSG - is it working? I don't actually watch the show.) By the time my husband got home tonight I was about ready to gouge my eyes out with a plastic spoon. Here's hoping tomorrow is better for us both...

  4. P.S. I saw some really cute little salad plates at Target today and they made me think of you.

  5. I'm SO impressed that you even took pictures during cooking. Mine are either before or after--NEVER during!

    That's when I'm busy screaming about cutting those $&(*@ mushrooms!

    (oh, I DID get your comment about your house--we are totally twins!)

  6. I want to run away all the time for no reason. The problem is, I live in a foreign country. No where to really run to.

  7. hey, lets run away, where do you want to go. we both have that extra 2000 dollars we didnt spent, so we can go anywhere!

  8. You KNOW you have been aching to come here. Just do it.


Be nice or I'll punch you in the taco.
