Fragment Friday

*It's 11:10, and I finished my lunch at 10:40.  Yeah.  I kinda skipped breakfast.
*It's PAYDAY!!  Whoo!  Granted, I got pennies, but still, it's payday.  We're planning on going to dinner, and then the Goodwill Outlet after.  Don't know what I'll find, but hopefully it'll be worth it!
*I am cleaning the house today.  I've got a load of laundry in the washer, one in the dryer, and 2 more on the table waiting to go in.  Plus sheets and towels that haven't made it downstairs yet along with all the random socks I'm finding throughout the house.  (And then we wonder why we can never find Luke's socks in the morning!) Just sayin'.
*Ok, this Kaplan College commercial about the cute scrubs being the entire reason to have a 'medical' career is just annoying.  Like, seriously, doctors and nurses look down on you.  Hell, I look down on you.
*What do you do with dried Ancho peppers?  I could grind them up, I guess, but how?  Throw them in the food processor?

She called me because she knew I'd understand.  Shitty, but true.  Not shitty that she called, shitty why she called.  My BFF from high school was diagnosed with Leukemia last weekend, on my Birthday.  And this isn't all about me, at all.  This girl used to live behind me, we'd meet at the end of the street and hang out.  During high school we'd hang at Walmart on Friday and Saturday nights.  We went to Florida together our Senior year of high school.  She brought bean-o along because the boys were farters.  And she's going to beat this, I know.  It just knocked me on my ass, because I have NEVER been told someone close to me has the big C.  My cousin, but we aren't really that close.  A friend's wife from college, but I only know the husband.  Another friend from high school, but we weren't super close.  Yes, folks, this makes #4 (that I KNOW of) from my high school that has been diagnosed with cancer.  And we're only 19 years out of high school.  We're NOT OLD!  One was diagnosed 15 years ago, 2 of us were diagnosed 5 years ago, and then just now.  I'm really really bothered by this.  It's not fair. So of course I'm giving her all these resources, and I'm going to send her a box of hats and scarves since she's going to be losing her hair.

I went on a baking spree yesterday!

I made two loaves of Sourdough Bread, and then we actually had pizza with homemade crust yesterday.  Now, I'm officially out of flour, and can't do anything else until I buy more!  But, that's cool, because I'm back on my quest to remove store bought bread from our diet.  Charlie is all about saving money, but like I told him, if one day a week, I make several loaves, and I'm in the oven all day, we'll save money overall, because I'm only baking one day a week!  So our furnace won't be on as much!
Now, if I could only stop buying toilet paper.....  No, seriously, do you have that one thing or two, that you absolutely HATE purchasing?  For me, it's toilet paper and laundry detergent.  Now that we make our own detergent, the thought *has* crossed my mind to figure out something that can replace the tp.  I have some ideas, but am not sure if I want to take the plunge, and actually try and switch.  Charlie keeps coming back to the laundry, and the fact that we have our drain pipe from the laundry out in the yard.  Which might be the factor that doesn't allow me to do it.  BUT, in my defense, how is that different than cloth diapers?  So we shall see if I can convince the tree hugger to go even more tree huggery!

I'm having some major problems

The bestie and I went on a girls' weekend for my birthday, and we had a good time.  However, I got home, and just completely broke down.  Like I laid around all day yesterday, and didn't do shit.  And I am not feeling like my normal, happy-go-lucky self.  I don't know why.  We *are* having issues with our insurance company, but that's been going on since November.  So I don't know WTF is going on today.
