I've been more more ADD than normal lately. I pull up my work email and realize that I got an email from the house title company. Work email clearly lost out.
I start grading an online quiz and have a decorating brainstorm and suddenly the quiz is left half graded. Pinterest has been taking over my life a little.
This morning I was doing laundry (in order to avoid doing real work for as long as possible), I started doing some lesson planning, and suddenly I realized that I hadn't yet come up with a Mexican hot chocolate recipe.
I'm in charge of making the holiday drink for our department Christmas party, but I had yet to find a recipe. So, mid-laundry and mid-lesson planning, I found a Mexican hot chocolate recipe. My clean laundry sat in the dryer and my (partial) lessons sat on my desk as I made this warm, delicious drink.
This hot chocolate is thick and rich and amazing. It's also pretty darn sweet. (The next time I would start with only 1/4 cup honey, depending on who I was making it for.) The cinnamon and cayenne pepper add a bit of spice. It will warm your belly and keep your mind off of other distractions, like work and real life responsibilities.
