my plan is to glam it up with beads and gold sequins and crap like that. by the time i trim those little suits out, her dolls wil be trendsetters.
she's only 6. i am going to her school for grandparent's day. yes, i am considered a grandmother. she recently enrolled at a new private school. i can't wait to see her cute uniforms.
when i was in 10th grade, my best friend transferred toa catholic school. she was looking forward to the uniform. i guess that would have been a good thing for me, given that in 5th grade, someone gave my mom a box of 10 identical t-shirts. my mom decided it would be a good idea for me to wear them instead of buying me school clothes. i ended up getting the teacher writing on the t-shirt, to number them from 1-10. the kids in my class had been teasing me. i went to a very poor school, seriously in the ghetto. those ghetto kids felt superior to me because they had more than 1 shirt to wear..if that's what it took for them to feel better about their situation, then by god, let me be the one to help them.
i think my mom making me wear the same shirts every day killed any fashion sense i might have possibly developed. when i shop now, i tend to buy multiples of the same things, but in different colors or patterns. i'd rather shop on-line because it's so much easier. i try to always get promo codes and discounts from the internet before i buy anything. getting free shipping can be a big deal.
i found someone's cellphone monday. she called it and i told her i would send it to her. so i packed it up for the mail. i just looked over at the bookcase and i see that i never put it in the mailbox for pick up. the postal service would work for me if i let them, you know, actually put things in the mailbox and stick up the flag.
i hope karma doesn't kick me in the ass for that. i really had good intentions. as soon as i finish here, i will walk down the hill to get the mail.
i am trying to come up with something fun for my blog.if i could get a few more readers. i am thinking of having certain subjects i write about each day:
- mellow monday- SERENITY NOW! 'nuff said
- tv tuesday- where i bemoan the lack of "j&k+8" on a weekly basis.
- way back wednesday- tales of jordache, jontue and painful heartbreak in the disco era
- truth-or-dare thursday- spill your guts or do my bidding
- foodie friday- ummmm, recipes
- something something saturday- just something extra
- funday sunday- i will start doing something fun every sunday
actually, this entire thing is not to get a lot of readers, but to keep me from thinking about the money situation. the numbers are still running through my head. i have a reproduction chroome dinette set i am going to pull out and try to sell on craigslist. that would probably pay a car note.i really only have 2 weeks until my finances are looking better, whther my husband works full-time or not. he's supposed to be back at full hours in a month, but dang, these two weeks are killing me!
last night for dinner, i cranked up the oven and threw the contents of all those tiny bags in the freezer on a baking tray. we had tater tots, chicken strips and fish sticks. i also grilled 2 chicken breasts and made some bacon. i ended up with a chicken, bacon and honey mustard panini, and a bit of tots. i got some ribs out to make later this week and i have ground beef for dinner. i have freezer space! i think tomorrow i am going to a different store than i normaly would shop. i have heard they have a lot of cheap meat and i can get my coupons doubled.
not to be cliche, but i miss living near a taco bell. i have to drive either 13 or 15 miles to get to a taco bell. so i make a lot of taco meat at home. i have also learned to make burger sliders- the nearest krystal is 22 miles away. you get a dozen for about $5 doing it my way. that was what i made for my sister and her fmaily for our annual christmas dinner. oh, and we had cheesy tots!
of course, if i had a smartcar, i would drive there. hey smartcar people, if you are reading, give me a car! i promise to tell everybody how cool it is!
