I think if I could find the right recipe...I would be 682 pounds. Thus I have not looked very hard.
Mine had oil in them. IDK...they are good enough I think.

I think you're just going to have to suffer the #firstworldproblem of not having the best tortillas unless you go back and get some from the source.

Sometimes I'm glad I dont know how things are meant to be...makes me happier with my lot.

At school. Relatively normal morning. They will mostly knock MIL out so I don't think it will be too hard on her.

I am home today. I don't feel terrible, but I don't feel as good as I thought I would this morning. My throat is much less sore - the penicillin is doing its job, I think. But I am still tired and achy. Have to wash all the sheets today. Kill the sickness!! So far Ezra is exhibiting no symptoms, !

When I had strep last year I was shocked at how long it took to get over it. When I was a kid it was 24 hours and I was good to go..not so much as an adult.

That's what I was saying to Mel last night. I remember the sore throat terribleness from childhood, but I don't remember this terrible body sickness at all!

Re: Basically it's Thursday

It is so true what they say about a watched pot. I need it to boil so that I can put my sauce in jars and let them process, I don't want to get ready for work until that is done because sure as sh!t I will splatter tomato sauce all over myself if I do. DH can take it out but he wants me to start it :eyeroll:
Ru I just keep picturing you at home eating oreos thanks to your profile pic

My dad was too but he still knew enough of what was happening to him to be scared.

I haven't heard from her, and I like to assume hat no news is good news... so... good?


Not Oreos, but I am trying to decide what to eat for lunch.
