I'm breaking in the new cookie sheets and scooper I got (boy it's so much easier than using a spoon!), along with the new double timer I got. and a new chocolate chip cookie recipe - I was supposed to get butter-flavored crisco sticks but I got regular by mistake, let's see how these things taste.
I may have undercooked the first batch a wee bit, but they did come out pretty yummy!
I picked up my dress from the tailor this morning (removing the tacky flowers on it and stitching up the neckline) on the way to work, so I showed everyone at the office and they loved it.
Several of my friends commented on what a trip my mother was, how we're so alike with some mannerisms, but so different in other ways. one friend said "the apple may not fall far from the tree, but thankfully this one rolled" lol!
oh, and did I mention that my former roommate/friend of 15 years, FORGOT about my shower on Saturday?! I kid you not. The shower was 2-5, and at 4 pm I got a text saying "sorry I wasn't at your shower. No real excuse other than being a scatter brain"! the irony is, she would go ape if someone said they'd do something, and didn't do it.
I didn't think of it at the time, she probably thought the shower was already over.
I am sorry that happened.
I tend to get busy in things and lose track of time, never totally forgotten anything important tho. I now have a calendar on my phone and reminds me 15 minutes before an appointment. LOVE IT!
That's too bad about your friend Tina. By the time she realized it at 4 it was probably too late to get dressed and get there before it was over. I can't wait to see the altered dress. I wouldn't be able to trust myself with those cookies.
So good morning everyone.
I'm off today so I'm trying to decide if I should work in my yard or scrap. My yard really needs to be mowed.
Hi all. I tell you something - my new job may not be paid as well as the old one (although the pay is still pretty good), but the hours are fan-flipping-tastic! I arrive on time, I go home on time (mostly) and I can easily fit the work in the time available.
Who could ask for anything more?!
Tonight I spoke to dh (hes in Denmark this week) and said - I may stop being ambitious unless something falls in my lap, cos this job is fun, a challenge, lots to do, and I'm enjoying it. Can we cope with a little less money.
