Homemade popcorn is the best! Not the one you put in the microwave I’m talkin about the ones you pop in a cast iron pan! Just the way my  Oma used to make. I miss you!

Vegetarian?

Posted on

Ok, my daughter and I are trying this out. I’m NOT a vegetarian, but I don’t eat chicken, beef, pork or lamb. I do drink milk and eat cheese, fish and eggs. Good thing is I’ve lost 4 lbs since I started it little over a week ago. It all started when my  17 y/o daughter came home from school saying they watched the movie “Vegucated” I think that’s the name of it. She was very disturbed on how the animals were treated. I don’t think I could sit thru that. I have a hard during thru Shark Week! Lol (poor seals), and the commercials about mistreated cats and dogs. How could anyone be so cruel. I know people want/need to eat meat and I’m hoping the slaughter of animals somehow can be alittle more humane.

And my day….

Well this morning went great, after getting my first eye exam in maybe 7 years (yikes!) I know it’s bad but no insurance was my problem. Luckily I only needed reading glasses and I could buy those at Walgreens or Wal-Mart 2.50 was prefect for me. Now I have a great vision plan which entitles me to get glasses and contacts. Hmm, contacts that would be nice not having to deal with glasses on top of my head constantly falling on the ground, misplacing them because I put them down somewhere and I can’t find them which has happened to me quite a few times. Green contacts I’m thinking. 🙂 TAXES to be done tonight. Alot of people dread this time of year but for me being a single parent of 2 kids…it’s like Christmas. My tax return is usually very nice. Thank God. This year I’m using it to pay off my daughter’s car, it used to be my car, 2 car payments suck.

That’s just a couple grand, her father (the ex) is matching it. The rest in the bank to save for a rainy day.

Rainy Days….

Posted on

I love having my day off and it’s raining. Love that my house is so cozy and I don’t have to drive in it! Watching movies and making waffles for the kids. Wish my honey would get home from working his half a day. This is cuddle weather for sure!
