nobody puts baby in a corner!

by teresa

I have a mosquito bite on my eyebrow. It is really aggravating me.
I wish it would get cold enough to kill all those little buggers.

My sister called the other morning in a panic.
"Has Kristian and Ben left for school yet, she asked."
I had just gotten back from taking them and when I told her she sounded very upset.
I asked her what the problem was.
"I think she took my girdle to school!"
That made me smile all day.

Tackled a new recipe last night.
Chicken puffs.
It was good, but had so many steps that I will never make it again.
And the clean up was horrible. Flour and honey all over the counters.
Tonight I am keeping it simple....turkey tacos.
A crowd pleaser that you can make ahead of time, store ingredients in separate containers and everyone can assemble their own at dinner.

Tonight is a parents meeting at Ben's school for the strings program.
And so it begins...
Thirty minutes a day of the moaning and screeching that is 5th grade violin.

Before I go I wanted to express my sadness at the death of Patrick Swayze.
Ghost is one of my all time favorite movies. When someone dies I picture the "after" happening just like the movie showed. The good...and the bad.
It also makes me want to run off to Michaels and buy a potter's wheel, some clay, put on the Righteous Brothers' "Unchained Melody" and wait for Chris to come home from work.
I'm just sayin'...it was a really good movie.
RIP Patrick Swayze.
