This is NOT what I was hoping to see…

I went into the Laundry room yesterday to get something and this is NOT what I was hoping to see! I nearly screamed out loud it was so big. Huge! Monsterous! Gigantic! Nasty! Soon after that I’m hoping he died from being drowned by bug spray. After some research, I found this: So it looks …

Brilliance…

Uh! Why don’t I learn my lesson! You can’t take paint that’s been sitting for a couple of years and expect it to actually match when you’re trying to make touch ups. I had this problem at the old house. Today I had the brilliant idea to find the old paint and do some “touch-ups.” …

Chicken Cordon Bleu

I used to love getting the chicken cordon bleu in the frozen section until I realized how much sodium they had. Really overall, just super unhealthy. I love being able to recreate something that I love making it the way I want to and that gives you the liberty of making it healthier. Chicken Cordon …

Today

I think I’ve ran off my fan club. Haha! I know I haven’t been posting on a regular basis but many of you know things for me haven’t been great. The new house is wonderful and I have great neighbors. In fact, the boys played with the 2 boys next door and we ate dinner …

Restaurant Meme

I saw this meme over at Susie’s. Since I haven’t been absent from my little place here I figured this might be something fun to do and to let you know I’m still here. Like Stacy, I like the usual Chili’s, Red Lobster, etc, but I decided to do unique restaurants. These aren’t in any …

The Lowdown

So I thought about it today and decided I’d let you in on the lowdown for those that are interested in what happened. Last Wednesday, a week ago today my principal told me that they would not be able to renew my contract for next year. I was in complete shock and disbelief. I’m like, …

Quiet lately…

I guess I’ve been pretty quiet here lately. You should be thanking me though, because if I was writing here every day you wouldn’t want to come back. I’m just not real happy right now. I’m upset, because we’ve had 3 houses that we would live in and all 3…poof…gone! We’re running out of time, …
