a fabulous time
went to the birthday party of my sister-in-law joanne saturday night. a huge bash for a very special birthday; 70. my niece and her husband (christy and michael) had done all of the cooking; about 12 hours worth. tons of snacks and goodies and then a full buffet followed by cookies, cake and a chocolate fountain. not to mention the full bar, a rum punch fountain and then a champagne toast. i can only hope that i look half as good as joanne when i hit the big 7-0.

fresh & cheap
ok, so the store is actually fresh & easy, but i think it is cheap and not so easy (i have to shop, check the groceries and then bag them). obviously that is why it is so cheap but i still think they need to change the name of the store.

i just got back and this is what i bought:

1 12 oz. bag of fresh mixed veggies
1 package of fresh sliced mushrooms
1 dijon mustard
1 package of (2) potatoes
1 bag of whole cashews
2 3lb. cans of columbian roast coffee (store brand)
1 can of black olives
2 cans of solid white tuna in water
1 small tub of country crock

my total? $23.02 after a $5.00 store coupon! i really love this store, i only wish that their selection was larger. the best part about my shopping adventure was that a little old man (i am guessing he was about 125 years old) in a fresh & easy green cardigan came over and gave me a pack of coupons, yes siree, another $5.oo per week for the next five weeks. when i thanked him, he said, "my pleasure sweetie". he was sooooooo cute.

being a mom
being a mom has got to be one of the greatest jobs ever even if it does require a 24 hour day. i watched this and as i was laughing it reminded me of a lot of the things that i said to kath as she was growing up. watch and enjoy!

5 1/2 pounds
yep, just the amount of weight lost between monday and thursday, all i had to do was get so sick that i could hardly stand up. and how am i supposed to keep those pounds off when i can hardly walk? something in my left food made a very loud popping sound late yesterday afternoon and i am limping like crazy.

Mel, was that you with a voodoo doll?

young at heart
read this and then watch the video and tell me that you aren't inspired. i think that this is just too cool, but then maybe it is because of my age, but i don't think so.

who you gonna love?
i went to see my tax lady today,
shaking all the way
she asked if i had paid quarterly
in response i said, "no way".

it's hard to pay quarterly
when all you make goes out
she said, "you made a lot though"
my response was, "oh i doubt".

i handed her my 1099's
and interest payments too
she input and input and input
then gave my total due.

i thank you virginia with all of my heart, you are the VERY best. by the time she was done i owed her more than i owed the i.r.s.!!!
