Crossing off things
Sunday, May 24, 2009
from the to-do list which has been growing more quickly than my waistline did the last month of pregnancy.
First three power point slides shows-Check!
First quiz-its a pop quiz even-Check!
Being a good friend and helping my best friend pimp out her new website-Check!
Getting the website loaded properly-Not so much. Oh well, can't be perfect and she's getting what she paid for it... Hopefully up and running today.
Cooking an insane, positively obscene amount of food for hubby and buddies-Check!
The husband unit plays WoW... Yes, I am married to a World of Warcraft junky. His guild had a modern world meet up about 70 miles away. His best friend, a guy who has known my husband longer than I have, picked him up Friday night on the way to the meet up. The Guild is coming down here for a Crawfish boil and BBQ (cause I can't eat crawfish because of a shellfish allergy, and well, they are not going to be that rude with me in the house). The bad part of this is that I have had to clean the house (which I would have had to do all by myself anyways even if DH hadn't gone because well, cleaning is not his forte) as well as prepare the side dishes like potato salad, coleslaw, baked potatoes. I am very impressed with myself. As I was boiling eggs and potatoes for the salad, I snacked on a single boiled egg instead of the potato salad.
I admit it... I am a carb junky as well as part Irish so potatoes are an integral part of my blood.
I also am not telling the husband that I made the potato salad with fat free mayonnaise because he would be completely disgusted by it. He thinks the words fat free are the equivalent of saying that Santa is just a myth and that Star Trek was terrible.
Oh, I also got a preview of my office.... I wish the reality was as good as that sounded. I am going to get a desk in cubicle land but I have a desk and a file cabinet and two chairs. Now, I just have to pick out a picture or two to go on the desk as well as my favorite McDonald's toy. I stole my nephew's Happy Meal toy a few years ago (like ten years ago) when they featured a series from the Toy Story movies. I have one of the three eyed creatures from the crane game which has sat on my desk since I managed to filch it.
Okay, enough rambling... Ciao for now
