    And tonight I'm making the cross rib roast for my boyfriend and our friends Dana and Jane. I'm going to use green beans from the freezer and the frozen Orida steam and mash potatoes I got for free. The salad I took to DBF's should still be good, so I'll make that too.

    My Lowe's card just "lowered" itself to exactly the amount I owe. I had just decided I was finally going to bite the bullet and buy myself a washer & dryer (I've been hauling my dirty undies around for 2+ years!) and they go and do this.
