weekend update

First of all-- thank you so much for all your sweet comments on my last post. It means so much to me to know you guys are thinking of and praying for me, and your kind words and advice are priceless to me. Thanks for reminding me and truly helping me feel that I'm not alone.

I accomplished the many things on my list! The house got clean (although the day DID start by me causing the washing machine to flood the laundry room....and did I mention I was at home alone?? UGH!!!)...the errands got ran...and we still had time for a nice date night last night. So all in all, a success!

The shower today was a success too. Plentiful food and good times with some girls. As always, I really enjoy myself once people are out here, hanging out and such. It's just the getting ready part that makes me such a wreck! I will have to entertain more often to remedy this, I suppose.

One of the best long-term results of the shower? This bouquet of flowers! I bought them to decorate the dining room. Then I kept them. :) And they make me happy every time I look at them.

Since the shower ended, we've just been straightening up and trying to mentally prepare ourselves for another work week. And catching up on things on the DVR-- Marriage Ref, anyone?? HUH-larious.

Also, we ate dinner. I know you're jealous of this klassy menu: hotdogs and asparagus.

Don't pretend you haven't been there. We're not the only ones eating this random of meals, are we? What's a girl to do when you have both a half package of hotdogs and half a pound of asparagus that will go bad if they're not eaten? I can't waste something like that!

OH! I meant to add this in earlier. In reference to my blog last week (too lazy to go find it and make a link) about my stinky refrigerator/sauerkraut guys are geniuses. Also, you are haters. But I will address the geniuses first: I'm not sure WHICH tip it was that solved my problem, since I implemented all fifty tips at the same time, but it definitely worked! I'm guessing it was the combo of the NEW box of baking soda and the little bowl of vinegar? Whatever it was, I thank you that I now have a non-stinky fridge.

And all you sauerkraut haters? You're a vocal bunch, aren't you? Do you have some kind of anti-sauerkraut society or something?? Geez! Making me feel like such a freak sitting over here eating my stinky sauerkraut. Thank you to the 2 sisters out there eating with me in solidarity. :) For the rest of you-- don't knock it til you try it. Most of you admitted you've never even TRIED it, so...yeah! I think I've made my point here. Although I'm not really sure what it was.

So...what'd you eat for dinner? There might be a special prize if you can beat the culinary genius that was hotdogs with asparagus.

Might be. Don't hold your breath though.

  2. Sunday is the only night we sit down to eat as a family while I am in school. So tonight we had a yummy chicken stir fry chock full of fresh veggies (broccoli, red peppers and carrots). It was made with a lemon pepper marinade and came out delish! My family loved it!

    As for your lovely meal...hey...we've all been there. Something is about to go bad and it has to be paired with an unlikely partner...not a pretty sight...but it's food so who cares!

    Hope you have a wonderful week! ~Susan

  3. Asparagus...great choice!

    How do you prepare it? I discovered this way recently and I really enjoy it...put olive oil on the asparagus, sprinkle on some kosher salt and pepper, put in the oven at 400 for a bit, and then for giggles if you're in the mood add parmesan cheese on top once you pull it out of the oven (that's optional).

  4. First of all, I didn't comment on your last blog but I love you, and I don't even know how difficult it must be to go through the hopeful/letdown cycle so many times. God must have a pretty special child in store for you guys, though... and I love you, too. (If that helps.)

    Second... last night, we had Papa John's. Mushroom. And tonight we're having Chick-fil-a, I think, isn't that horrible? But 100% of the proceeds at our Chick-fil-a are going to a charity that helps travel expenses for families of kids with cancer, so I figure all that fat and peanut oil going to my thighs is for a great cause. :)


I love comments almost as much as I love Mexican food. Seriously.
