Think I have the plague

It’s not bad enough that I don’t have a three-day weekend for the holiday I caught the friggin plague from Ry. I am miserable and cranky. (And ever so grateful to whomever came up with the idea for Puffs Plus with lotion.) I tried to venture out earlier but even going to the supermarket wore me out.
So during my wonderfully exciting weekend I have managed to catch two really good movies. Yesterday I finally got around to watching Hot Tub Time Machine. Loved it! Especially the soundtrack. I have to remember to add it to my Amazon wish list. Now the only John Cusack movie I haven’t seen yet is 2012. For some reason I am just never in the mood to watch it.
Today I watched Surrogates with Bruce Willis. My nerdy self of course loved this sci-fi flick. It’s a scary thought considering how much people get addicted to being on-line and replacing real life with their “Second” life. Watched that using the new Netflix membership. Yes indeed I am really bored.
I did just make a jackpot find of a whole box of unread books. I received them right before Christmas and for the life of me couldn’t remember what I did with the box. I eventually began to think I was mistaken and wasn’t missing anything. The box went under my bed and I of course NEVER venture under there unless searching for a missing kitty. And now I am going to go pick one to read. Happy 4th!

Charcoal is lit (finally!)
Chicken is on………

Ribs came out perfect!
Although I have since found out you’re supposed to braise them first.
Tasted good and were super tender which is what counts ao it’s all okay in the end.

Everyone enjoyed..can’t ask for more than that 🙂


My first beef short ribs and they were delicious!

Wow! Style Sheets

I think I may have a love/hate relationship with style sheets. The possibilities are endless, the learning curve sucked! It’s taken me almost a month to redo my layout into a word press theme. At times I have wanted to cry and kick my laptop clear across the room.

I seem to be missing most of my blog post images. It s going to be soooo much fun putting them back. Ewwww!

Anyways it’s the 4th of July weekend and I am free from work for a whole THREE DAYS!!!!!! I have been sitting here trying to work up the enthusiam to get up and go to the supermarket to pick up the rest of what I need to barbeque tomorrow. And that is exactly what I am doing now……….
