Happy National Pasta Day

TWIT and I would like to wish everyone a very happy National Pasta Day.  

I've told you this important news early in the day, so there will be no excuse for you not to have some pasta for lunch or supper tonight.  You have plenty of time to make lunch plans to go to a restaurant for some pasta, and you have time to pick up a box of spaghetti on your way home from work if you don't have any in the pantry at home. 

We've already planned out our menu for supper at The Compound - we're having our pasta in lasagna form.

Thank You, Patti LaBelle

The 'Rents and I would like to publicly thank Pattie LaBelle for her peach cobbler, and thank Wal-Mart for having plenty of them in the store tonight.  

We just finished having a big ole hunk of it, and we all three agreed it was as good as any we could have made.  

Thanks again, Patti LaBelle.  You and your peach cobbler rock!!

Rest Up Sunday

After a long, long day yesterday at the Southwest Community Festival, and after a long time of unpacking everything when I got home, today was a day of rest. I was already worn out from all of the lifting and packing in and out yesterday.  When the first front moved through last night, I sure felt it.  And another big front moved through this afternoon, and once again me and the Old Man sure felt it.

We just want to be able to have a good night's sleep tonight.  We are hoping the front has moved on through and will leave us alone.

Security Tip Saturday

It's hard to believe we're' one-third of the way into putting together the family emergency kit.  If you're new to TWIT, every Saturday for 20 weeks, I'll post a list of items to buy, and at the end of the 20 weeks, you will have compiled the recommended items for a family emergency kit.  Visit the archives for the previous 6 Saturdays to catch up.  Remember - when I list 1 gallon of water or 1 can of juice or fruit and vegetables, it's 1 per person in your household.

Week 7

1 gallon water
1 can ready-to-eat soup
1 can fruit
1 can vegetables
Sewing kit
Disinfectant (bleach, hydrogen peroxide, alcohol)

Happy National M&M Day

TWIT and I would like to wish everyone a very happy National M&M Day!! 

I am posting this early in the day, so there will be no excuse for you not to have time to get a bag (or two) of M&M's today and celebrate!!  I'm going to start celebrating as soon as I post this and have some peanut M&M's with a cup of coffee while I work.

Is This Week Over Yet?

Could someone please tell me if this week is over yet?  I've had one of my three people on vacation this week, and the other two have needed to leave early the past two days, leaving me alone to do the work of four people.  I will go on record and say that I know I am being too nice of a boss.  

But I digress.  My vacationing guy will be back on Monday and then I will have some room to breathe.  Until then, I will get 'er done.

I feel horrible for not posting for two days.  There is no excuse.  It is all on my procrastination.  

My cousin from Columbus, GA and his wife were here visiting for the weekend, and that took up a lot of my computer time.  And this week at work I am filling in for one of my guys that is out on vacation, and believe me when I tell you I cannot wait for him to come back.  I haven't taken my breaks or lunches the past three days, and have stayed over every night trying to play catch up.  So now you see why I haven't posted on TWIT.  But I promise I will do better.
