PM, thanks for the info - actually I bought a jumbo pack at the unnamed superevil superstore over a year ago for dh to use on the cars, and they are still sitting in the package in the laundry room. Might unpackage them and see how they work.
Did the time change last night? I honestly don't know anymore. I've been having strange nightmares about my job, I don't know if it's because we're now a one-income family or just the idea of not going back, but ugh I'm getting tired of it!
Mamas with bad days, how's it going?
Andy your cheesecake sounds delish, I think I forgot to mention that Lauren has issues with soy too, suckeroo for us, or we'd be making one. I had one of the soy delicious ice cream sandwiches Weds. night and the little bum rash she got was worse than the dairy one, the soy rash came with sores. It's so awful. Much better last night than it has been, but still looks uncomfortable. I really hope those are the only issues we find, I can't imagine cutting anything else out of my diet.
And the wedding last night, chicken cordon bleu, pasta w/cheese mixed in the sauce, potatoes w/butter on them, cheese in the salad, etc. etc. and so I had a few bites of salad with the cheese picked out, a bite of pasta, a big heaping serving of green beans, some bread, and a piece of beef that had suspicious (dairy, not spoiled) gravy, but it might have been ok. Guess we'll see. And no desserts for me.
Ok, done pouting. I did eat a nice big sandwich before we went just in case.
Oh and the power yesterday stayed off until 4pm, we had a line down in the neighborhood. The house was 55 when we got home from the wedding ceremony, which is just too cold for me. As a teenager my dad would turn the heat down in the house to 62 at night (still does) because he decided he likes to sleep in the cold. I guess he thought as kids we needed to be warm, but once we were teens we were left to fend for ourselves.
And this couple who got married, yikes, talk about omens everywhere. They've been off and on for years, the first engagement ended with him breaking it off, the second with her doing the drama fling of the ring at him. The third time they got engaged she asked for another ring (specifically she wanted bigger/more) so they reset the stone with 2 others (one bigger of course) and she was smug about it. Then they reschedule the wedding 3x (or maybe more?) and the last time they moved it from June to this weekend for their family. The day after the shower she tells him she's not going to do it. He called me to discuss ettiquitte about the gifts, and I sent him to a counselor. Wedding is back on. Then it's off, and on again. The morning of the wedding the power goes out (at his house, the church, the reception site), the pope dies during their Catholic wedding, there is snow blowing around inside the church, the florist arrives literally as they are walking down the aisle, etc. etc. Just a big chaotic mess. I personally have bad feelings about it lasting, but maybe all of the trials they've gone through will make it that much stronger.
So I want to run away somewhere warm too. Mostly because there is 5" of snow in my yard. But just getting away from everything else would be nice too.
