Seriously, I hate cooking. I hate to think about cooking. I don't do recipe swaps (I wouldn't mind dressing up the card, but the recipe? forget it!). I always tell DH I make one thing - reservations!

NO ... I only like my cookies after they are baked!

I make very good reservations ... I even use DH's credit card to pay for the meal .

I just kinda find it easy to remember how many days ago we had chicken (for example) so the next time we have chicken has to be either less than 7 days or more than 7 days but not exactly 7 days.

The only reason I try to avoid a "pattern" is because the FIL gets upset if the pattern is broken so it's much easier to avoid one than deal with a cranky old man over what we served for dinner. He actually dreams about food so if he thinks we're having meatloaf the next day anything other than meatloaf disappoints him.

Difficult to live your & DH's life together around another person! My grandfather lived with us after he broke his hip at age 90+ and used a walker when I was a teenager. My mom was stuck at home because someone had to be around all the time to help him get up and down in chairs/out of bed/to the batheroom, etc. It's not your own life or your own house.

I know it could be worse but it is still frustrating because it's the little things that wear you down and if you "complain" it is often viewed as being petty or ridiculous or similar by those not living it (and sometimes by those that live it with you 'coz it's his Dad, kwim?). Plus FIL likes to manipulate and bully and, while many know this, most allow him but I didn't in the beginning and rarely do now (exceptions are when DH is very stressed and "tension" between me and FIL would be unfair to DH.)

Luckily for my mother, Grampa went to live with my aunt for 6 months out of the year so they traded and mom had a break.

I'm not sure what your FIL's issue is but the difficulty is to remember that people with illnesses that change their brains is that they are NOT the people they used to be...same body but "different" brain. Other family members tend to forget how difficult it is for the people "stuck" doing the caretaking. It puts a big strain on marriages because you should be having your own "family" but there's this extra person who is not your child that you have to arrange your whole life around. Caring for your kids is one thing but caring for parents/grandparents/other relatives is totally diffirent.

I have no room in any room of the apartment for it (and, after seeing them both at an Expo, I like the Hobby Hideaway better.)

Default Reminder: Directions to Stampin' for Soldier Oct 3

The Stampin for Soldiers Holiday Cards mass production gathering organized by Sandee Richards of Ava is:

Saturday, October 3 from 11 to 3
St. Marys Nativity Church
1125 State Route 26
West Leyden, NY 13489
Directions: Take Turin Rd north in Rome...it is actually State Rt 26, follow it through Lee Center, West Branch and Ava. When you get to West Leyden, the church is on the left side of the road just before Hilltop Market (Gas station) and the turn before Rt 294. There is a house right next to the store that the priest used to live in. It is about 16 miles north from the intersection of Chestnut St. and Turin Rd.
Cardstock will be supplied, cut, and scored and stamps, ink, and embellishments will be available. We will put together several styles of pre-designed cards in an assembly line manner so we can get as many cards made as possible in 4 hours.
Please bring your own tools and adhesive and lunch.
Please come to help us put together lots of Christmas and holiday cards for the troops to send home to their families!! There is no fee for Stampin for Soldiers but donations will be accepted to offset the cost of supplies and shipping to From Our Hearts (Sandees moms non-profit organization). Please let me know who can attend so I can tell Sandee how many people to expect. Thanks in advance!!!!

I have had one hell of a weekend.......

Long story short - got a call at 11pm last night from one of our former neighbors. Our other neighbor came over and said that our side door was wide open, and that her tenants had admitted to taking alcohol out of our house. (we still had some stuff left in the old house). i called Sherriff's and when I arrived there were two sheriff's cars (one of them K9) and a state tropper were there. Evidently when they arrived, a light in my house went on and they had to go in guns blazing.

Didn't find anyone.....went next door, found a couple of bottles of liquor/wine - but the tenant said that it was the roommates and they were in Endicott babysitting. THey have also been dumping their garbage in our dumpster that we have during the move and clean out. While I was out there, I didn't notice anything else missing besides the alcohol. Made my statement, neighbors made theirs, and the cops said that they had to pass it on to the detective dept. When I got home I couldnt remember if the kids 4 wheelers (toy....battery operated) were still on the back porch becasue it was so dark.

Detective called today for some more details (I was surprised he called so soon). We went out to see if there was anything else or any damage done. The 4 wheelers were still there. Come to find out - besides the alcohol, they also got:
3 rugs, 1 floor lamp, kitchen curtains that my mom had made for us, master bedroom curtains, the alcohol, a pile of change, 2 porcelain dolls of my daughters, and a set of china that was from my husband's aunt (Wedding present). They also had taken a new pasta straining pot set - took it out of the box - and put the box in OUR dumpster ALONG WITH THE REST OF THEIR GARBAGE. All this stuff was packed or was supposed to stay for selling or renting the house. We've been taking the last minute stuff a little at a time - whatever we can fit in our cars if we are out there.

In the words of a former principal of mine..... you can't make this (^&* up.

Logging out for awhile ... DH is cooking breakfast and we'll have more coffee. then, i need to create some "controlled chaos" (vs. random,uncontrolled chaos) before my sister, BIL and adult niece visit this afternoon. You know the messy craft areas being posted for the contest --- my L/R and D/R are worse!

I can't help but notice the ad on here, right now - for "promiscuous seductive boas". WHOA

Gayla - I doubt they can get fingerprints from the trash because it's been raining here. I don't even know if they'd go that route - it's pretty cut and dry. We know who it is, and the detective said that our case is the top of the pile right now....he's been pretty proactive so far. We met with him today to give him the list of stuff and some pictures.

Just got a call from our nice neighbors - who got a call from the jerky neighbors who have been helping us. He said, that she said she has some of our plates and pictures of other stuff....like she did a walk through (They're being booted in 30 days because they are selling the house anyway) and took pictures as "part of that process".

Haven't seen them yet...so here's hoping!!!!

Gayla -
We didn't really have THAT much stuff left (comparitively speaking). The scary part is, that both of us would have assumed that the other had packed stuff up and moved or got rid of it. Without this initial phone call, we may have never known - or realized too late. Someone was looking over us. On moving day, we packed every truck and car to the gills. Since then we've been going out while we can to get more stuff, throw more stuff away, etc. Free moments have been fleeting since I returned from convention.

The landlord found the china dishes, one of our rugs, and a Little Tykes Slide & Swing Castle that was in our backyard (again, I thought Jason gave it to my sis on moving day). TOTAL LOSS of all the items: $1500.

Bottom line, criminals are stupid. When we found out that the landlord found the dishes in their apartment, we called the Sheriff's department hoping someone would go out and arrest them - but they wouldn't since it had already been turned over to the detective. I hope he is able to get out there today and see the stuff and arrest them....as the dishes were packed in a suitcase and two duffel bags.

What really screwed them was the dishes - over $500 worth and the custom curtains - $250.
