Deja vu

All over again.

Gosling stacked the Uno deck and dealt to me and his sister while dad was off playing guitar and recording some new songs. He gave himself all the Skip cards and Wild cards, but quickly realized it’s not really that much fun when no one else gets to play. It made a nice lesson about [...]

Spun Up

Posted on February 27th, 2011, by Trina

The kids spent a few hours this afternoon with the salad spinner, trying to figure out how it works. The current theory is that it pumps air into the bowl and that’s what dries things off. More investigation is necessary. I took video, but it is having problems uploading. Things we know: tortillas and cheese [...]

Silent Auction Night

Posted on February 26th, 2011, by Trina

Woke up, made lemon bars, ginger crinkle cookies, and carrot cake muffins for the school silent auction tonight. Then I went to work for the afternoon, and shot on over to the silent auction. I didn’t win everything I bid on, which is a good thing, but I won a programmable thermostat and a shovel. [...]

A celebration dinner, of sorts. We went out to sushi where the kids devoured a bowl of edamame in no time at all and we all got our favorite sushi. It’s actually nice going out with them again!

Another one bites the dust

Girl scout cookies and tissues. That about sums up today’s doctor visit. There’s nothing she can do, I’ve been referred to another doctor, a joint specialist, but I can’t call until Monday to make the appointment. I have a lot to say about the appointment today, good, bad, and ugly, but I’m too raw and [...]

El Gato

Posted on February 22nd, 2011, by Trina

Newman is taking full advantage of my new-found invalidity. I missed the last step before the landing coming down the stairs yesterday and shredded whatever was left in my knee. I’m trying to get my specialist appointment moved up, but I’m still waiting for a call back. Walking isn’t too hard, but bending the knee [...]

More Bread

Posted on February 21st, 2011, by Trina

The kids took it upon themselves to make bread today. Without a recipe. When they were discovered, they had mixed flour, water…and cornstarch, thinking it was yeast. We added more flour to soak up the extra water, some actual yeast, and a bit of sugar, kneaded it, and the kids came up with Monkey Bread [...]

I’ve been taking at least one picture a day to post, but I often have a hard time choosing which picture to highlight. Sometimes I throw in a few, just for giggles, but today I need to pick one. I could post the one of my often goofy husband who makes it possible for me [...]
