I love when problems solve themselves

Sunday, September 29, 2013

I've blogged before about the lovely family that lives a few doors over from me, the ones who helped me get my laundry into the house when I was worn out after a major laundromat run. Last night the wife came by with their little girl. She came to give me some of her homemade tamales! Guess how long those tamales lasted? That's right, they were part of my dinner. But as to how the problems got solved, first of all I offered her my boxes of Barilla pasta (yes, that's who my problem is with) and she accepted (gotta feed the kid). Paul, I completely acknowledge your view but I respectfully disagree. I felt his remarks were homophobic and sexist. But we can agree to disagree with no bad feelings.

Then I asked her if she'd be willing, a couple of times a month for a little money, to take my laundry to the apartment laundry room and wash them for me. She agreed. This will work out very well for both of us. I really need to bake them a batch of cookies ASAP.

Right now I'm watching Chopped and eating a Chobani yogurt for dessert. I never thought I'd consider yogurt a dessert, but Chobani or Fage Fruyo make fantastic desserts. The calcium and protein don't hurt, either.

Monday is month-end, always the nuttiest day of the month in my office. Got to get my rest tomorrow, because Monday I might even be there until midnight. Oy...

    I'm so glad everything is working out for both you and your neighbor friend. I bet her tamales were delicious. My friend always makes me about a dozen of the ones she makes around Christmas. I believe she said it's a Mexican Tradition to eat tamales on Christmas Eve. So glad your neighbor is able to do your Laundry and I'm sure she'll appreciate the extra spending money you give her for doing that. Seems like you've had a great day and that makes me happy to hear. Take really good care of yourself and have a wonderful new week. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I used to have wonderful neighbors like that. It seems that they are fewer and father in between lately.

    That's a win-win solution! And that is so wonderful to have such people for neighbors! I am happy for you.

I love Fage yogurt too. I get the plain and add my own fruit. Saves a few calories. Greek Yogurt is so protein packed!
