Fun Day, Yup you heard me right
My MIL's nieces are here from Missouri. They are both chiefs so it is always wonderful when they come because they cook wonderful food and are fun to be around. My MIL always perks up. Yippy, none of Julie's cooking!
Yesterday they bought out the store to make homemade lasagna, the chiefs way. I make lasagna I heat the oven, put the box in and wait 90 minutes. They make the lasagna you spend at least 5 hours cutting, chopping, grating,peeling, slicing, browning, tasting, baking, laughing, sipping on a cold beer and whipping up a wonderful side salad lasagna. The results are much more impressive then the boxed one I usually serve and I have not seen my MIL eat such a large potion in months. And a salad! Plus the really great news! She made 2 and we froze one. We can have it again.
Ricks cousin is addicted to Menards our home repair store. Every time she comes we have to go to Menards. We have to walk every single isle. Its a hoot. They are leaving today and then tomorrow we have more relatives coming on for a couple of days and Saturday another. Of course this is my first day back to work so I will only see them for short periods.
Yesterday my van bit the dust again. We have been having trouble with the fuel rail. Thought we had it fixed, but as soon as the weather cooled priceless gas started shooting out all over. Rick tried to fix it which made him reek of gas which in turn gave me an asthma attack. So to replace it will cost us 500 dollars. Gee, what fun. Now what rock will I find that under. So we are down to 1 car. Hard to do when we are living in 2 houses. And our furnace which we put a new fan motor in now needs a new fan. Plus my dental insurance went up 120% and my medical. Can we say ouch here!
I walked Zoey in the woods and heard a loud crack. Looking up I was a branch coming down with a squirrel hanging on for dear life. It hit the ground with a thud. Poor little thing. It sat there stunned for awhile but then took off. Even Zoey looked concerned.
Well, time to pop in the shower and get over to my MIL's. I am hoping work goes well and the next 4 nights fly by. Have a great weekend.
