So as of today we have two less people at work. One just quit to get the hell out and the other got a better job with the bigger agency up north. I just wonder why we can't get the really annoying people to leave? Someday, someday..
Last night for dinner we had Crock pot Chicken Tortilla Soup. I had Melissa throw all the stuff in the crock pot for me. Other than leaving the pieces of onions rather large she did a good job! It was pretty good although I didn't really like the "soup" part of it. It kind of had a funny flavor. I'd maybe make it again but less liquid or just drain the liquid off and eat it like nachos. That's what Jess did.
Of course mine doesn't look as pretty, probably since I used my phone for the picture. Scott ate two bowls than promptly fell asleep so I think he'd give it two thumbs up!
Today Melissa had to turn in her cell project. Jessica helped her with it I think. I was laying on the couch when Melissa started working on it and then I woke up (we must be a bunch of slugs around here lately, we're all falling asleep all the time) she was done and it was in the fridge. I drove the kids to school today so she wouldn't have to take it on the bus. I was pretty impressed with it!
and I'll always have the green dot of food coloring on my favorite table cloth to remember it by. Kids are great!
I'm listening to another Wally Lamb (audio) book on my commute. This one is called
"The Hour I First Believed"
The main character and his wife work at Columbine (pretty sure it's a fictional story though) at the time period of the shootings. So far it hasn't got to the shootings, but it telling a story about a girl named Violet, talking to the shooters at a pizza parlor they worked at and the main characters relationship with his wife. I'm going to have to put it on my iPhone because I don't want to stop listening to it when I get home or to work every day. It's pretty interesting. (Definitely not for the easily offended types though)
It's been super windy here the last two days. Today the power at work went out two times. The first time I was at lunch and it came right back on. The second time was right after I got back from lunch and it stayed off for a couple minutes. Sadly it came back on.. Hopefully we don't lose any shingles off the roof. Scott just fixed the ones that flew off a couple years ago. The wind did blow off one of the kids toys that's been stuck up there for God knows how long.
I was paying the bills when I got home today and actually went in and looked at my cell phone bill. Once again I've been getting charged $3.99 for like THE WHOLE YEAR for some stupid thing I never bought. Of course the totally annoying even toned voiced man at the AT&T customer service said he can only take two months off. Even though I have something in place that isn't supposed to allow these kind of charges to be made on every line but my own. Somehow I think I must have set up it on my phone too and it dropped off some how. Guess it serves me right for not checking my bill with a fine tooth comb every month. Rat bastards.
Someone knocked on our door a bit ago and it was the son of the neighbor that passed away. He's been working on the house a bit and noticed that all of a sudden the metal clothes line base is missing. Weird. I told him maybe the people he had cleaning the place up took it to the scrap yard? No idea. But I got to meet the neighbor (he's the son but he lives right down the street too, everyone is related to someone out here). He seemed like a really nice guy.
I have a pork tenderloin in the crock pot for another new recipe.
Hopefully it's good.
Should be done soon.
I bet you can't wait to see it!
Leave me a comment. Lately I've been getting more spam than real readers comments!
