Well, you know about how this wimpy Texan couldn’t stand the cold. Fortunately, it warmed back up. Whew! With the warm, however, came some unwelcome guests. Ants and bees. Yup. There were ants in the kitchen and bees in the house (we opened the doors and windows… we need new screens badly.) Are you kidding me? Ants? In January?
The warm weather didn’t last (though it’s not bitter cold) as we went from over night lows of 60° to 40° this morning! Brrrr! Are you kidding me? FORTY?! No, it’s not sub-freezing, but 40 is still cold!
I already messed up the sweater I am knitting. I had to rip it out. I’ll be starting again today. *sigh* More on that over at my knitting blog.
The nice folks at DirectTV offered to pay the contract cancellation fee the cable company will charge us for early cancellation, so we are going back to satellite today. Yippee!!! Of course, that means the the 4 feet pile of junk in the corner of my bedroom has to be relocated put away. Before noon.
SuperSoldier’s deployment was delayed. He was very frustrated. First he was told he wouldn’t leave for a month. Now he’s on “Standby” for the original flight out. We may not know he’s manifested until the last minute. I get it. It’s the Army. I’ve lived that life for all of my adult life and still, this is killing me. Imagine how it is for him.
Last week I made a 2 week menu and shopped according to it. Now I can’t find the menu! I have no idea what I am cooking. I really need to start doing those things on the computer instead of stray pieces of paper.
I just can’t think of seven things. If I think of another one, I’ll come back and edit.
Ahh, yes. There was one thing I wanted to gripe about. My rolling pin. Chief got a lovely Polish Pottery rolling pin for me for Christmas. I love it. Or I should say I loved it.
Honestly, immediately after I opened it, I could tell by the weight that it was hollow. I was surprised by that, but figured they knew what they were doing. Not so much, I guess. I made pizza last weekend while the kids were here and this is what happened when I rolled out the second crust. The dough is not hard to roll or anything. I would say that I was using it under normal or typical circumstances and the handle just broke off. I can’t believe that it is made in 3 pieces. I can’t believe it is hollow. We are going to return it. It is too expensive to be sitting around here broken. *sigh* Hard to believe the $8 wallyworld rolling pin is so much sturdier.
