We ddont normally eat out but before school starts and also my FT job starts, we have been hitting all our favorite places to pig out. So we have completed DD's bucket list for the summer as she says. So yes, I am complaining how much food we are eating.

Dd#1 - (15) - nothing to read, in spite of owning many books and having access to a library
Dd#2 - (14) - lag -- that annoying moment between the moment you click on something on your computer, and the thing you want happens
For me - overeating. There is just so much food and it all taste so good. But I need to stop because I have a walk-in closet full of clothes that my a$$ is getting to big for.
The luxury of worrying about what time my kids go to bed! And what they're doing for the rest of the summer! And how to decorate the walls of our new place without painting since it's a rental. My kids are excited that they will no longer have to share a room when we move. These are good problems to have.
Hey, that's my summer excuse for not baking!
I guess my FWP with regard to food is that I can simply choose between raw, cooked, microbiotic, organic, etc. It's pretty sad that with all those choices, I can't figure out what to eat. I'm practically starving over here.
One thing that I miss, though, about my semi-rural roots are those all-you-can-eat Chinese places, buffet-style. I think they still have two or three in my hometown. When I was a cash-strapped student, I'd save all my coins and for $3.99 could pig out on Fridays at the Chinese buffet. Oh, those were the days. MSG...mmmmm.
I've got another one to grumble about:
My cleaning lady never comes when she says she'll come. She'll call and leave a message announcing she'll be by late Friday night and then won't come till Tuesday! It drives me nuts! I feel silly because it's really not critical when she comes. Just the fact that I can never rely on her message... ugh!
We recently moved from our own home into a rental. Before we moved we bought a new range. I love to cook, my new range is beautiful and such a treat. I've never had a new range before. Well, I didn't realize that our rental has a cooktop and wall oven. An ancient wall over. A Kelvinator. A Kelvinator whose thermostat is off by 70-150 degrees, so I pretty much just play "pick a temperature..any temperature" when I bake. Instead of replacing it my landlords are fixing the part...well it's been 3 months since we moved in and it's still not fixed. And the cooktop is an old coil cooktop. And both of the big burners are in need of repair. But the guy who came to fix it did a half ass job, so now one of the burners just doesn't work and the other, while the wiring looks scary, is still hanging in there. So I went out and got a hotplate, instead of calling back my landlords to fix it ...AGAIN.
