The yard sale was a huge bust, no one showed up.  So I spent 45 minutes lugging everything out, to sit for 6 hours to lug everything back inside.  Argh!  Such a pain in my ass!  I swear, I'm never doing one again, I'm going to rely on ebay, facebook, and craigslist to rid my house of my crap from here on out!  I posted several books on Paperback Swap, and luckily only 1 isn't on hold for someone.  So that means that 5 books will be mailed out.  So then I can browse for other books that I want to read or actually keep without spending a ton of money on them!  Which, Charlie hates, but oh well!  ;)  
Dinner is simmering in the crock, I'm trying REALLY hard to like my crock- I think it's a texture thing.  It's Santa Fe Chicken, so we shall see.  The boys also have Scouts tonight, so I have to have dinner ready within the next half hour.  :)

Er Mer Gerd!

I know I said I'd update our successes with our pinterest menu.  Fail, however, the two items we tried are fantastic!  Both will be making it into our dinner rotation, and that's no mean feat around here!  Luke even loved the soup, which is an Italian Sausage and Bean soup with Pasta.

Luke hates beans, but he actually ate them, and asked for more!  Whoot!  I am thrilled!  He's also kind of not a soup kid, but whatever, he loved it!  :)

The other thing we tried was this, which is also super good.  Luke didn't like that one as much, but it's still awesome!

I am making biscuits and gravy tomorrow for dinner- Thank you Loveless Cafe, for your sausage gravy recipe, and hopefully your biscuit recipe!  :)  Shush! I know that's a closely guarded secret! And I won't tell if you won't!

I was talking to Luke yesterday night, and we've decided to try and go to Disney every 2 years.  He had a blast there, and he really does want to go back.  Yay!  So now we've got to figure out a way to be able to put aside about $200 a month for the next 18 months or so.  We'll do it, I promise.  Charlie even wants to go back, even though he says it's just for Sweet Tomatoes.  Which, to that I say, phooey.  He loved it, he just won't admit it!
