Re: B2B - Back to Basics "Why are these pink?!" Tuesday

Ok, I finally made a deer corn heating bag. It's like a rice sock, but evidence I've researched and long forgotten suggested that deer corn is a better option. So I bought a giant bag of deer corn (because they don't sell small bags and it's only $6) at the start of deer season, whenever that was, and it's been sitting in my garage for months. I finally opened it today and made a quickie one, probably the equivalent of 4 cups in a freezer gallon ziploc, covered it with some sweatshirt scraps. Heated it in my 1200 watt microwave for two minutes and put it on my sore baby-carrying back. It was a lot hotter than I expected, and it stayed HOT for 25 minutes. It still had residual heat in it an hour later. I'm totally sold on this, it's a great idea. Going to try to bag up a bunch tomorrow or next day, make the covers later, before the bugs figure out I've got a giant bag of open food in the garage.

Well they were fixing a mini power outage at work and ended up shutting down the power for an entire block so I'm home early.

THe kids watch all educational TV and disney or disney-type movies...except for DH's football and music videos (he watches old classic videos, prescreened, not the risque ones in front of them) and then when #1 spends the night at grandma's house, evidently they eat hotdogs and cheetos and watch infomercials LOL, thus the snuggy reference.

I think I and the kids could do without cable, we'd just watch movies on occasion and TV from the internet, but DH would never do it. But I could never unplug from internet, and there's not a cost-effective way to do high-speed internet only.
We have DSL-only from Qwest for $35/month, and our phone is Vonage over the DSL line so $28/month, no cell phones or TV. The cheapest for adding cable would bump it up to $99 for a short promo and then $115 and up a month. And we watch DVDs, and I'm starting to check out online TV, but not much.

So not only am I overdrawn until tomorrow-I can't even afford to e-file my taxes to get my $2600 back

thats funny i sound like a commercial
I'm waiting for my debit card to show up...

I agree, we should do more stash pics! When could everyone have some pictures ready? I'm doing diaper laundry tonight or tomorrow morning, so I can take pictures then...how about Friday for posting them all, or would Monday be better?

Thanks! I soaked it overnight with like 4 scoops I think, and when I checked today they're still pink but slightly less so. I think I'm to the point now where I'm okay with the idea of them being slightly pink, I guess they'll fade eventually.

We don't have cable here, just movies (the ones we own and a lot of Netflix every month). DH and I are both paranoid about bit torrent stuff so we don't usually download shows or movies unless we're paying for them through iTunes or something. We had cable before we moved here, and I found that I had it on a lot when I wasn't watching it, so I'm glad for DS's sake that I don't have that option here. DH prefers movies to TV anyway, and I don't really care that much either way.

sorry, that's so frustrating!

I was sort of medium nerdy in junior high and high school. In junior high and through about 10th or 11th grade I was really active in youth group so I didn't mind as much that I wasn't one of the cool kids at school, then senior year I was sort of on the fringes of the cool kids and that resulted in all sorts of embarrassing behavior to try to maintain the semi-cool status. I was always really insecure and shy, well into my early 20s. Because I was shy people used to assume I was stuck up, and I got a lot of the "ice queen" type references all through high school and college.

That sounds great, I'll have to tell my mom about that -- she has a bad back and I know they've probably got a bunch of deer corn around since they feed squirrels and other critters out at their place.
