Trixie, huh?
Will we be seeing pics of Trixie?

When Tom and I were dating and I would call his house to talk to him sometimes his dad would tease me and say he was out.
Out w/ Trixie & Bubbles for the evening!
That's so funny!

I need to download and edit the pics. I hope that they turn out decent. Some of the boys were hilarious!! I need to swap photos with some of the other moms.

Travis Trixie looked cute in his $15 dress.

Do you know what I just realized???

Now that Travis is in 8th grade, we don't have to rush to a football field for the start of a 4:00 7th grade game!

I feel like a free woman with the "free" time that his new schedule gives me.

Maddie is THE most unpleasent morning person I've ever seen - especailly at her age!
He's in the truck offering her a COOKIE for breakfast or just to improve her mood. I'm not really sure but it just made me laugh that he was doing whatever it took to make anything easier on himself.
If it works, go for it!

What a sweet way to celebrate your bday! The cake sounds sinfully good.

Did you ever find someone to do the OT?

I think I am going to puke. Fairfield's alumni magazine just went out, and it was discovered that we listed someone as deceased who is still alive. I proofed the article and didn't catch it. Ultimately, it's not my fault because I didn't write it and I'm not responsible for sign-off of the magazine, but I was asked to help proof when my VP was on vacation, so I'm so afraid someone's going to try to put the blame on me. I was just in tears in my boss' office. UGH. I hate work so much right now!

I knew it was going to happen sooner or later. I got him to say he would go one more time. So we will just see how that goes.

Has he made some new friends?
It's tough getting kids into the habit of going to preschool--especially when they are used to being home. I hope that it gets easier for him.

Yuck.

I'm sorry you had to deal with this!

What a crummy mess to deal with. Hopefully no one will try to blame you for that mistake. I think that the person who wrote it is responsible. You were only asked to proof the article, not fact check.

Look at this yummy recipe!!

Baby BLTís



Baby BLTís
  • 1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 3 oz. light cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • lettuce, for serving
  • 24 cherry tomatoes
In a small bowl mix together mayonnaise and cream cheese until well blended. Stir in crumbled bacon, green onions and parsley. Cut a small slice off the bottoms of the tomatoes (this will prevent the tomatoes from rolling around so much). Using a 1/4 teaspoon, scoop out the inside of the tomatoes. Fill each tomato with the bacon mixture and refrigerate for 1 hour. Serve on lettuce leaves.

This is a recipe that I recently started making, and my family loves it. Even my picky child, Cupcake, likes it! The last time I made it, she took leftovers for her school lunch.


Church Chicken

Ingredients:
2 TBLS butter (I used more butter since I used more celery & carrots)
2 stalks of celery, chopped (I sliced the entire bunch of celery)
3 medium sized carrots, sliced (I used about 1/2 a bag of the pre-sliced carrots)
3 pounds of uncooked chicken pieces (I didn't check the amount of chicken; I just bought one large package of boneless skinless thighs and crammed all of the chicken in the pan.)
1 cup uncooked rice
1 package of dry onion soup mix
2 cups of water
salt and pepper to taste

Prep:
Sautee celery and carrots in butter on medium-medium low heat for about 5 minutes.
Mix rice and onion soup mix.
Spread the bottom of a 9x13 pan that has been grease or sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Spread the rice/onion soup mix on the bottom of the pan.
Arrange chicken pieces on top of rice mixture. Place sauteed veggies over chicken.
Pour water over all & cover with aluminum foil.
Bake at 350* for one hour.

My changes are in pink.

The last time I made this recipe, I used 2 cups of rice, 2 packs of onion soup mix and 4 cups of water. I also forgot to spray the pan and cover it before I cooked it!! It still turned out really good.

Because you care about your work, it's hard not to worry or feel guilty.

I'm sorry!

I know. I noticed that last night.

I like Jimmy too and agree with Edie in that he really isn't in it for the money. I think he is good motivation for the team. I agree that (can't remember her name, the one that got voted off) really sealed her fate with her speech.

Hola!

I've had such a busy day! Went to see the Food Nazi this morning. She chewed me out (in her "nice and proper" way) for my poor food choices over the past couple of weeks. I was expecting that, but it still wasn't pleasant. Went to Kohl's to return some capris, then to JCPennys to look around for a bit before my hair appt. Tried a new hair dresser today. Mom and Cindy have started going to her and love her. She colored Mom's hair last week and it looks wonderful. I didn't think Mom would ever do that, but it looks better than it has since she started going gray 30 years ago! LOL! I just got my bangs trimmed, but honestly my bangs can be a ibtch the hardest part of my hair to cut. I think she did a good job. We'll see what they do in the morning after they've been washed and dried.

I tried on a bunch of dresses for Caleb's wedding after my appt and bought one. The attire is "beach casual" and the weather will be unpredictable, so it's hard to say what I should buy/wear. This dress was on sale for $24, though, so I figured I couldn't go wrong with that, right?

Grabbed some lunch, wandered around Hobby Lobby and then went to the dentist. THought I'd cracked a tooth, but thankfully I haven't. I love that our dentist has walk-in hours. He checked it out and thinks that I've just been "beating up" my teeth by clenching and grinding and night (his words!!!! ). I haven't had trouble with TMJ since I was in college, but if it doesn't improve I may have to start wearing a night guard. I hope I don't, but if I do, I do. I was just tickled pink to hear that I hadn't cracked another tooth!

Glad to hear that Jane is at PT. I've been worried about her!

Jess - Yeah for you for being strong and not eating all the goodies! I'm sorry about the mistake in the alumni publication. You weren't responsible for it, and I don't see how they can say you are. HUGS!!!!!!

Mels - Good to see you! Sorry you've been sick, and sorry to hear about your FIL and friend. Will keep y'all in our prayers. Can't wait to see pics of Trixie!

I was thinking about her while driving home the other day and had every intention of finding her number and texting her as soon as I walked in the door. I got distracted when I got home and it didn't happen, obviously. I'm very glad to hear that she's okay. I was hoping that she was at the PT center and not in the hospital for some reason.

I laid down and went to sleep when I got home this afternoon. I had planned to rest for about 30 minutes. I woke up two hours later thinking it was morning! That was an hour and a half ago and I'm still feeling hung over. Dang, I hate it when I sleep that hard so late in the day! I should probably go find something to fix for supper. Ed should be home before too much longer. Hopefully.

Oh well.
Okay. Maybe it's a bit overstepping my bounds, but as the resident editor here I will tell you that "Sisterhood of the LOSTies wishes Tracy a Happy Birthday" is correct. The verb tense matches with the main subject (Sisterhood) and not with the supporting clause (of the LOSTies). So, it's correct to say "Sisterhood wishes" because a Sisterhood is one cohesive group. Now, if you'd said "The LOSTies" then it would have been "the LOSTies wish."

Clear as mud???

I'm sorry I haven't been in here until now. I'm having a semi-carpy day and don't want to rain on Tracy's birthday parade. In fact, I won't even do it now.

I'll come back tomorrow when I am in a better mental state. For now, though, I just wanted to put my wishes in.

Love ya, Trace!!! Eat some cake for ME!!!!

Hey there!

Justine, I'm sorry that you are in a mood. I hope whatever it is works out or at least you can come to terms with it.

Jess, don't beat yourself up about the error. You know you do a great job!! Let us know what happens...

Colleen, if you think it's worth your while, you should consider talking to the branch manager at the PO. No one should be talked to like she did to you. Tell her to stick her stamps....


I am eating some "cheater" nachos. Chips on a plate, shredded cheese sprinkled on, micro'ed for about 45 seconds, topped with some salsa. Dinner!
