  1. August Challenge

    by , 08-07-2008 at 02:22 PM
    Ok. So I have a lot to do before my classes start up. I'm only taking two but they look like they are going to be a bit challenging to this non-mathematical person!! We shall see. Two days before my classes start we also have dd's 2nd birthday so I really need to get the house in tip-top shape.

    One of the most important things I need to do before then is to get on a schedule (mostly for cleaning, but also for studying). Dh has this habit of wanting me to spend the evenings after the ...

  2. Trip to OHIO, should be packing, but having fun on FV

    by , 08-07-2008 at 12:43 AM
    Well I had a late day at the first job, and couldn't make it to the second job at a decent time. so I stayed home. It is always nice to hear from the VP that you are doing a good job. I figured I would pack but instead I am messing around on FV. I am only bringing one bag since the airlines is charging $25 for the second bag. I bought a orange citrine ring for Christmas to give to my mom early. I would be afraid to ship it. That way she gets to enjoy it for awhile. I am only going Sat eve.9th tothe ...
  3. My baby comes home tomorrow!

    by , 08-06-2008 at 01:45 AM
    No, I didn't have a surprise baby but lately, I've been wanting another addition. It may be because my friend Eugene and his girlfriend had their baby girl about three weeks ago (and she's so gosh darn cute!). It may also be because my youngest, Dakota, has been gone for the last week. It's so surreal because well, it just is. He was around the house all the time and has had previous trips to his grandparents. Every single time he's gone, I've missed him so much. It feels so empty in the house without ...
  4. Day #5 Hamburger Helper

    by , 08-05-2008 at 10:25 PM
    Today I thought I was going to have to stay late at work, but nope! I left at normal time. So, I just made the Hamburger Helper that I planned. They had a new flavor in the store called Sloppy Joe. I don't think it tastes like sloppy joes, but dh says that it tastes just like the manwich mix in a can. I have never had manwich mix in a can, but the Hamburger helper tasted good anyways. We had peas and texas toast with it.

    Dh's grandma will be getting out of the hospital tommorrow. ...
  5. How to Horrify Friends While Saving Money on Food

    by , 08-05-2008 at 08:16 PM
    First, it is important that you know that my best friend is a chef. In fact, she is a GREAT chef!

    And today, to her horror, I mad a shocking confession.

    In order to reduce this weeks grocery spending , I had spent 48 hours eating my way through a package of hotdogs without buns, dipped in ketchup and mustard. Actually, I ate 7 of them. And worse, I didn't feel deprived - I actually enjoyed them.

    Kind of like the cookies that I stole from the cookie ...
