Pot Lucks

Reading time:

So, what’s so “lucky” about a “pot”?  I was doing some assignments for my teds wood working review class when I thought about this as we are having a potluck soon.  So, in my boredom, I started questioning the meaning.  What does a “potluck” mean and what makes it so lucky?  I’m not sure I’ve ever heard anyone ask this question before.  All I know is that I like eating food and I feel awesome when we have one.  Anyway, now I have to finish my assignment then figure out what I’m going to bring.

Valuable Lesson

Reading time:

So we learned a valuable lesson this last weekend. We didn’t know this before but apparently you cannot put Wax Paper in the oven unless something is fully covering it, ie: if it’s underneath a cake, etc. Well, you don’t know what you don’t know. You cannot have Wax Paper exposed to the direct heat of the oven. Believe it or not, the packaging states that also. I have never had to use Wax Paper in the oven until this weekend, but I won’t ever again, unless I’m baking a cake of course.  Which I think will be next week when our group for no essay scholarships meet.  No Wax Paper though.

Back To School

Reading time:

I am finally going back to school and I haven’t been to school in over 20 years. You would think it’s like getting back on a bicycle and peddling but it’s much harder than I thought. I forgot all of the things we used to do, book reports, reading, homework, extra assignments. Not to mention getting up into a routine like that again. I’m not alone though, most in my consolidation loans for people with bad credit group feel the same way. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Balloons

Reading time:

Balloons are such a happy item to have. It’s amazing how kids like them so much. I found out that you can even draw faces on them and make kids even happier. We were at our group dinner and we were able to bring our families. They had balloons all over the place and towards the end of the evening, an amazing thing happened. The instructors teaching our anatomy and physiology study guide material got down all the balloons that were decorating the place and put faces on them and gave them to the kids. It was awesome.

Scrambled Eggs

Reading time:

Well, if you don’t like scrambled eggs, try adding some other items to it to flavor it up a bit. You can add just about anything to scrambled eggs, chicken, cheese, whatever. This morning I tried adding some turkey pepperoni and some low fat mozzarella. Add a little bit of pepper for a little zing and viola. If you want to really add some extra flavor, add some taco sauce. I know this sounds different but If I were able to get everyone in my quick scholarships group to try it, you may like it also.

Appointment

Reading time:

We have an appointment today that will change our lives forever and I could not be more excited. This is much bigger than the appointment I had for. Even though that was life changing this is even bigger yet. I am so excited I can hardly wait. We are enrolling in a college locally. I have never been to college before so I really don’t know what to expect. I’m really glad that we are going to be doing this together though so one of us isn’t left in the dark. The last hurdle we came over was consolidation loans for bad credit, now that we’ve accomplished that, on to better things.  Here’s to bigger and better things in our lives.

Funny Puppy

Reading time:

Our dog is so funny. I’m sitting here doing my school work and he’s laying in my lap with his head resting on my arm, even while I’m typing. Sometimes when my husband is working, he goes and lays down right under his feet. It’s really cute. Last night, my husband was working on his class for and he was sitting sideways with his feet to the left of his desk. Our puppy actually started sitting on his feet. It’s nice to have an addition to the family.

One of the funniest was when we were watching a best term life insurance companies commercial with a dog and he started whining like he wanted to play with it.

Chicken Recipe

Reading time:

A friend of mine from our debt consolidation group gave me another idea for a recipe last night. This is another chicken recipe. All I had was some chicken and I didn’t really have a lot of spices or things to make a fancy recipe so we used some things I had around the house. We used butter, garlic powder and a tomato diced. When you mix all of that together in a skillet, then add like a cajun or creole seasoning on top. It turned out very delicious.

This is much better to watch than this video:

Carpet Cleaner

Reading time:

A friend of mine gave me a great idea the other day, it’s something I wouldn’t have thought about on my own but glad she gave me the advise, so i’m passing it along. You don’t always need to buy expensive things to get the same results. For this example, for me it was carpet cleaner fluid. I was going to pick some up the other day and totally forgot. A friend of mine was like, that’s okay, just use laundry soap. You know, I wouldn’t have thought of that on my own. What a great idea, like easy scholarships was a good idea, spend less is that point and it’s something that I already had.

I have been looking for new music lately. I am very happy to have found a few great groups that I can rely on to give me great music anytime I need it!
