Kids Meal

Dinner tonight was as though I was 10 yrs old. Grilled ham and cheese and chocolate milk. I did make it a bit more grown up, I added steamed veggies.

I am definitely ready for the weekend. Its a long weekend. I plan to try canning for the first time. My friend E said to expect it to go wrong. I am going to try and can Chili. I have a pressure cooker, instructions and supplies. I just bought the pressure cooker, I got the Presto 23 qt and a soup pot so I can prepare the Ball Mason jars. I am very excited.

After losing power twice last year with Hurricane Irene and Winter Storm Alfred and losing the contents of my fridge and freezer twice I really want to be better prepared. It seems that my generation is really traveling back in time. We garden, we knit and now, we can!

Definitely ready for bed. Is 8:30 too early for bed? Well Just in case I will pack my bag for the weekend in clean cat litter

Another week another -$1.50.

I have been due for an upgrade on my phone on October 6th. I Called AT&T a few weeks ago. They wouldn't let me pre-order early without paying an insane fee. The lady did say to check a few days before my upgrade and I might be able to do it early. Well, lo and behold I checked yesterday morning and I was due for my upgrade a few days early.  So I did it! I bought the iPhone 5 from Apple ! I went with the 32gb and white, I also bought the adapter so I can use my other accessories. It should be here October 31 -Nov 6.  Ugh! I hate waiting but I am very excited. My iPhone 4 has been cracked since the MS walk in April. I am the doofus who dropped it. (there might have been some other drops/cracks that may or may not have happened at a bar while drinking beer)

I finally managed to get my hours back to 8-4:30. Granted I am usually at work at just after 7am and stay until just after 530ish. Last night I left on time and man, the lack of traffic was amazing! Made it to the gym by 545 and it wasn't overly crowded.  Made it home to make dinner and watch tv and not feel rushed. It was awesome! I don't think I can do it again tonight, I have too much to do but it was so nice yesterday.

Thanks to iPhone 5 Purchase. No more spending for awhile. (I say this as I am looking at plane tickets to see family at Christmas)

Ok, back to reality and your normally scheduled program
