  1. October Meal Plan

    by , 09-28-2008 at 12:52 AM
    We have a lot of birthdays and events going on that involve eating, so there is quite a few days that we are not having a "meal". I am having my In Vitro procedure on the 16th approximately, so I am making a big pot of Comforting Chicken Noodle Soup so that I have that on hand. Last time I did this, I was so sick from the anesthesia, that I didn't eat much at all for a week. At least if I have soup on hand then if I can eat, I will have the soup.

  2. 9/27/08 - Eat Out Night

    by , 09-28-2008 at 12:38 AM
    Tonight was our designated eating out night for the week. We ate at Firkin & Bull, a british pub. It opened back in April and we had been there once, but it was so packed, I think we waited an hour to be sat, that we haven't gone back. So, we decided to go there again and got in right away, no wait on a Saturday night at 6pm. There was barely anyone there. Seems like there are too many restaurants here for any new ones to last very long. So, we got Pepsi and Dr Pepper to drink. Dh ordered ...

    I had Chicken Pot Pie on the menu for tonight, but we had so much Mostacolli Meatballs leftover that we just reheated it for tonight. I was proud that we used up a leftover and didn't go out. I think I'm getting more in the habit of cooking and eating in.

    Also, today i did not have any Pepsi!! I am so glad!! Day one of many.
  4. Ex's, child support and all the Bullshit that goes with it!!

    by , 09-26-2008 at 09:58 PM (Mommy's Blog!)
    When I was separated in 2001, my ex paid his temporary child support through the divorce until it was finalized.
    In August of 2002 I was forced to move home (about 650) miles from where he lived because of losing my 2nd job. My Ex proceeded to quit his job of about 20 years as an air traffic controller, use his G.I. bill to put himself through school for computers and live with his Mommy! Of course, not paying a dime of child support!
    He went to the state, had his child support amount ...
  5. The Invisable Paycheck -- Day One

    by , 09-26-2008 at 12:02 PM (The Long Road, But Worth Every Step)
    Have you ever had dreams where you were surrounded by everything you could possibly want and/or need in life??? One where you had it all... because you could? One where money was no object because the world was yours for the taking???

    Ya... me neither.

    The Old Man gets paid today. Today starts the first --invisable paycheck-- which means for the next two weeks we have to live off what was left over from the last paycheck.

    I know I need to be responsable. Face ...
