So any of you born before the year 1990 should at least be familiar with this happy foot tapping bunny named Thumper from Bambi, he said, "if you ain't got nothin' nice to say, don't say nothin' at all."
I am of the opinion that a lot of bloggers try their best to follow this "rule" in regard to talking about themselves or their lives. This is the "safest" way to go, because then you don't get the ridicule of perhaps being told that you 'deserve' all the misfortune that has been falling on your head as of late... I have been waiting for some SUPER GOOD day to take place to write a warm "fuzzy" post about and give everyone a warm blog reading glow, but in the past week, I haven't had a whole lot of those days, so I am going to DISOBEY dear old Thumper's rule and say it like it is :)
here. I love how disturbed she looks and how you can almost make out a Hitchcock profile behind her)
Friday was a silver lining day. After dreaming of Enchiladas all night long, my friend Brookie -- or as Scarlett calls her, "Spooky", came over and brought the ingredients I didnt have, (which were a lot) and even bought me a 3 dollar pan and made me a bunch of chicken Enchiladas. She even bought all the garnishes and chopped them up so that Joe could decorate his enchiladas, and she didnt even help us eat them, she left us that Entire pan for ourselves. It was awesome and SO TASTY. It doesn't even end here. She watched Scooby for us for free so that we could go see a movie and actually have a "Date night" we saw the 'Date Night' Movie. We are so cliche like that. We saw the Valentine move on Valentines Day we are so not very original these days :). But it was wonderful to spend some time together just the two of us, and that was great.
Saturday, Scarlett and I ate at YC's Mongolian Barbecue for lunch, and that is one of my all time fave places to eat, and Scarlett's too. I have a couple pictures from there.
We had a great time... then I got a reminder from my calendar (I have started setting these to help with my absent mindedness and as a result absenteeism to all events I had desired to participate in) that cousin Michael Chappel's fiancee's Bridal shower was happening in 20 minutes! I was wearing a muumuu, so I made a quick dash home, grabbed some clothes, and a card that I made, Darn I should have taken a picture of it, it was pretty... threw some makeup in my pocket and headed over to my Mom's to pick up her gift offering. Then Scarlett and I attempted to trek out to the shower. It wouldn't have been so bad were there not a huge accident on the 60. I didnt really mind though, because Scarlett napped the entire way there, and I thought "Score! she will be in a good mood!"
Fred got the car all fixed up and ready for us to pick up by Sunday night. My car is running like brand new! (that's not my car but it is a cute red hatchback, was the best i could do! image from here) It hasn't run this well in a VERY long time. So again, we have no more pennies, but things could be worse.
We have each other. We have our loving friends and family. We have a place to live, and landlords who are working with us (my wonderful parents). We have food stamps to keep us in food. We have me- a less than mediocre cook... who somehow still manages to get the job done. I've made it into my second trimester now, of my pregnancy without incident. That is a blessing.
We have managed to pull all our information to provide to our Accountant and are still hoping we live through April, but I figure if it hasn't broken me yet, maybe I can make it! Another great photo of Scarlett to characterize my mood:
