I wish cookies could fix everything

So today was a very very long day, my Grandma is in the ICU because of complications from a recent surgery on her lungs. She started having problems Saturday night and I was at the hospital along with family all Sunday. I also had an MS check up with my Dr. today so after my appt. we headed back to the ICU to visit my grandma, who was sedated for her comfort and to make sure recovery goes smoother. Actually when we arrived today things were waring off so I was able to show her pictures of the boys and give her an update on random things which she seemed to enjoy as she was very alert to the pictures but then she was given a larger dose to sedate her again :( but I did enjoy the small amount of time she was kind of awake with me. As I said the day was long, we were at the hospital for 7hrs and then I came home to a disaster which always overwhelms me, I enjoy what I call "controlled chaos" LOL yup I'm a freak and I came home to everything OUT of my control. After reclaiming what I could of my home and the spew of toys all over the place I made butterscotch chip cookies (after I put the kids to bed :) and here I am now, cookies fixed my day and I would like to share the recipe with you....(whoever that may be LOL)
Butterscotch Chip Cookies
2 sticks (margarine or butter softened)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup DARK brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
1 cup butterscotch chips
Cream together sugars and margarine til smooth; then mix in eggs, baking soda, salt, and vanilla. LAST add the flour and chips. Drop dough by tablespoons onto UN-greased cookie sheet and then flatten dough w/ your palm a little bit (so the cookies aren't puffy), bake at 375" for 7-8 minutes or until edges are light brown. Cool and enjoy!
*forgot a ME update, the appt. went well, nothing new which is great, I am feeling very good, my eyes have adjusted to the prisms in my glasses and my diet is still going strong; my mom actually asked me durring lunch today "What is it about Alfredo Pasta you can't have? " LOL my mom needs a cooking lesson...the answer to that EVERYTHING about it! I can eat it if I make it w/ soy milk but that's not your regular Alfredo sauce :P
