I just reread my post on groupdrink from last night... boy, was I being a gloomy Gus! Once I did finally get out, I had a blast, and I’m definitely in a better mood today :) Read more

It’s been one of those days where I just kind of want to lay down and kick and scream and have a toddler-style temper tantrum. Not that it would solve anything, but I might feel better after. Read more

Here’s a Sprite-in-a-basket! This used to be Sam’s windowsill basket, but Sprite discovered it and it’s now his basket and she won’t go in it at all.

That sounds like a great experience. I wish there was some place like that near me! My boobs are very wide set (like, start back under my arms wide) and kind of pointy and bras were always, always a miserable experience. I literally just gave up and stopped wearing bras altogether about 5 or 6 years ago. I’m a 38D (I Read more

Oh, don't worry, the teenage boys pick up where they leave off! I think we're down to 6 bowls, 6 plates, and 5 small plates, out of the original settings for 8. In a year.

Last night, Husband dropped and shattered a dinner plate while doing dishes. This morning, Other-Husband just had to one-up him by dropping and shattering a bowl... that was full of oatmeal. On the bedroom carpet. Le sigh. At least it’s just a (frankly, quite ugly) hand-me-down set from former Housemate’s mom that I’m Read more

Oh, Heart... I’m so sorry about Boo! It sounds like he’s getting close, but will hang in there for awhile. My Shadow-cat is like that. He and Pepper have been living with A-MiL for the last few years and I feel like he’s just a little shakier every time I see him, now. Other than some sinus problems (poor kitty gets Read more

BabySmacks is no longer barfing... but he’s got a fever and headache and says his whole body feels tired and sore. I’m guessing it’s the flu. Oh, joy. Already have one kiddo with a cold, so I guess it’s dueling germs in the Smacks household. Read more

He's napping now, and I picked up Gatorade, 7Up, and saltines at the dollar store,  so *fingers crossed*

I got woken up an hour earlier than my alarm by BabySmacks barfing in a bucket on the other couch. So that’s how my weekend is starting. Next up is picking up Oldest for work, then taking KidSmacks3 to the clinic for bloodwork (he’s fine, it’s routine testing for vitamin deficiencies). Read more

So, Kinja’s latest trick is apparently that I can reply to the main post, but not individual comments. I swear I replied to a comment earlier... who knows? Kiiiinnjaaaa! Read more

Sadly, we are all so broke here that we just decided to defer Valentine’s Day until we get our tax return (Husband) and workman’s comp (Other-Husband) sorted out. We’ll go out for a nice dinner together when that’s all settled and bills are caught up. I’ll probably run to the store in the morning and see if I can Read more

We got a bunch of snow, and it’s insanely cold out. I love watching the seasons change and all that, but I’m starting to feel like I’m done with these Upper Midwestern winters. 3 more years til all our kids are out of school... we’ll just have to see what happens after that. Read more

Just heat them thoroughly before eating them and you’ll be fine. I have an admittedly lassez-faire attitude towards food safety in the home (unless I'm canning... then, I am obsessive about it!), but I have eaten everything from pizza to soup to a roast that’s sat out overnight because our fridge is tiny. I haven’t Read more

That sounds lovely, Mimi :) I love one pot stews like that, especially with beans.
