i woke up early yesterday. i made a batch of gingerbread cookies to send to a soldier serving in iraq. in making an icing, i somehow managed to dump a full cup of confectioners sugar on my pj's, socks, and the floor in the kitchen. i couldn't do anything but laugh. today, i'm going to make a batch of special dark chocolate chip cookies, and with any luck i'll get the package on its way tonight or tomorrow morning. woo-ha.
