I am in!
We started moving on Friday and worked through out the weekend. Saturday turned out to be the hottest day on record this year hitting 102 degrees and of course that was the BIG moving day. Holly Hell was it hot. Thank god my girl Julia came over to help. Of course we took a break and headed to a New Mexican restaurant for a Margarita.
Mindy came over on Sunday and helped me decorate and down a couple bottles of wine. She met my roommates and enjoyed one of the fabulous meals they made. We had a blast and our girls played for hours together.
Last night was my turn to cook and of course I wanted to show them that I too can make a yummy meal. They decided that they wanted lasagna so I began to mix all the ingredients, and fry up some ground turkey. I went to turn the burner on the stove on and BOOM, a spark and a loud noise and then nothing. The oven stopped working and I am standing there with enough ingredients for two pans and no way to cook them. We ended up cooking one pan on the grill and one in the microwave. Ever had lasagna that has been cooked in the microwave? Not so great. It ended up being eatable and we had enough wine to mask it if it weren’t, so I guess it was not a total loss but geesh, could the cooking gods give me a break over here. I was trying to show that I have some skills.
Toots comes running in yelling “mommy, the toilet is peeing in you trash can”. Um, WTF??? What do you mean? “It is peeing in you trash can, come see”. Yep, the toilet was leaking and my trash was full of toilet water. I will never doubt her again.
But really, I am enjoying myself and life is good right now!
