Cold...has struck again

Hello all. Do you like my new header? I've seen all these saWEET headers and tried to make one on my own. It turned out BIG! I think I need to work on it a bit. Besides, I may decide to go a COMPLETELY different direction. Who knows. It's pretty fun though.

First things first. Cold. Deathly cold. I've kinda been worried twice in the past 24 hours that my hands were dying. I'm not joking. I don't know about everyone else...but I quite seriously get scared. It gets so cold, that I think I lose my logic and sense, and I HONESTLY believe my hands might lose their functionality. It doesn't help that it takes about 45 minutes for them to warm up again. Moral of the story: Danielle, wash your gloves so that you can wear them again. Sheesh. It was 5 degrees. And I filled up gas. No...actually, take that back. I didn't fill up. I just filled it like...a quarter full.

Next, a big one. I forgot. About the big one. About the no sweets thing. Thank HEAVENS there was an angel to save me. Her name is Patty. So the story goes like this:

We were all out at Olive Garden having a fancy ol time when the waitress comes and gives us Andes mints. My natural instinct brought my hand to the mint, sat and counted the mints, counted the people, and again...instinctively said, "There are definitely enough mints for some of us to have two:)" No lie. This all happened. I look at Patty and she has a strange look. As I START TO UNWRAP, she says, "Are you sure you want to eat that?" I instantly went, "OH MY GOSH! I FORGOT!" No wonder I was worried! Patty, bless her soul, was like "I mean, I don't care if you eat it, that's fine...I just didn't know if you really wanted to...I wasn't sure if you remembered" I was SOOOO grateful she said something! Can you imagine me breaking suit over a freaking andes mint? Totally NOT WORTH IT! If I'm going to fall it will at least be something that is pure chocolate. Brownies...cookies...you know. Anyway. Thank goodness, I'm still on track! This is my seventh day. Shall I rest from my work? Eat a chocolate chip? I wish.

Speaking of Sam's Club. Which I wasn't. I was just thinking of it I guess. Anyway- I really wish my boss hadn't offered me a club card. Guess how much money I spent there in ONE trip? $173.26! Or something like that. What the heck did I get? Well....tons of frozen food...for lunches and stuff. At least I can say that I DID get some food storage stuff. Soooooo...anyway. Yikes.

Aight. That's all for now...guess what Clay is bringing home tonight with his papa? MY OVEN AND DISHWASHER! YES! I'm kinda depressed though....



'cause I can't make cookies in it.

So cold. No one else has any idea the level of cold we are experiencing. I was totally going to go to Sam's today and I just couldn't bring myself to leave. Too cold. The girls even went out to play today! Crazy. We need to plan a cook day now that you have the needed appliances. Love you.

It's really depressing you can't make cookies in your new oven. I guess next year??

I am not envious of your cold. So sorry. Maybe you'll be up for a California trip this spring??

Look on the bright side, Danielle, you can bake bread, rolls, casseroles, potatoes, and sweet potatoes, not to mention there is pizza,plus all of the meat, trust me you will use the oven. I am happy for you that you are getting new appliances. Sorry it is so cold brr! I hate it when it gets too cold here and we usually only get down into the teen. Not below. Yes Sam's and Costco are 100.00 dollar stores, but they have the best quality. They are fun stores also. I miss seeing you hugs and love grams

Oh my gosh I don't know what to comment on first, new oven AAAAAhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!I am so excited for you. Just making dinner will be cool. Tonight as often I used both ovens and it is just your Dad and I. I admire your no sweet thing, thank goodness for Patty. I totally believe you about the cold, I hate it and I get very ornery when it gets cold and I haven't been in that kind of cold except maybe when I used to go snow skiing.The header, very cool. I noticed Clay is gone? Love you !!!

Oh and I forgot to mention the other way cool thing, YOUR DISHWASHER!!!!!! I still have a very loving relationship with mine and it is 6 years and 4 months old. It was one of the first things to get installed when we moved.

AMY AND MIKEY said...

ha- the andes mint- I so do the same thing- I always count to see if I can have two. Ha. Well, I'm really glad she caught you becaues that is a waste for dropping the goal. dishwasher and oven- you've been going this whole time without both?! oh my gosh! YEAH.... the making the treats in the new oven deal- depressing..... I don't have a costco card- but I'm glad I don't- because you just end up spending so much money!- I mean it's a great deal- so if you ahve money- it's great! But whenever I would go with Amy Heideman, I would spend so much money! I'm so sorry about the cold- I can NOT imagine. But Danielle, by the sounds of it, if your not wearing gloves in that kind of weather, ....maybe you need to get some medzies??? Wear your gloves you crazy girl! If you dont' have your fingers, you won't be able to sew and cook and do all the wonderful crafties that you do! love you!

How exciting you get your new appliances.Bummer you won't be cooking the sweet things.So does that mean that Clay has to suffer from them too? Costco/Sam's Clubs are not always the best deal. You really need to do the math at other stores too. Remember that club stores only sell name brand stuff other than Kirkland. So the name brand chicken breasts may be found cheaper somewhere else in another coomparable brand. Cheese, milk and a few other things are unarguably cheaper but you really have to be careful there.
