I just can't keep up with this thread.  It's like, in the old days, using the telephone on a party line.  

 

I missed Cinco De Mayo, didn't know it was coming up.  I need plenty of warning for Holidays if I'm gonna hit the right day!

 

And one more thing, when exactly is Mothers Day.  I know its coming from all the commercials on TV.

 

Oh, I made brownings last night.  Hips be damned!

Mother's Day is this coming Sunday -- shall I send a memo to your kids ;)

 

It's hard to miss Cinco de Mayo this close to the border -- the college crowd and older folks start partying about the 2nd or 3rd and stop on about the 7th!  I actually warned my new drivers of major holidays and using extra caution for drunk drivers and yep, include the 5th of May week in that category here.

 

Make some nachos and I'll send a margie over to ya!

I'm afraid to ask.  What's a Margie?   And it was a nice thought about the memo but if they actually got me anything for Mothers Day I would have to give them the money for it...lol

I think that is an affectionate name for a Margarita.

 

They could wash & wax your car or something.

Oh heck ya!.  Add me to the "Margie of the Month" club  :D I like em shaken with salt....

 

I could possible get my Son to wash and wax but since I told my daughter in a very nice way to "move her assets out of my house", she might be a hard sell.  I'll look for something on Facebook from her. :lol:

I love chores as gifts -- hubs deep cleans the kitchen floor for me this week every year -- my birthday follows right after Mother's Day so it gets lost in the Mother's Day celebration for my Mom every year -- my crappy old kitchen floor gets shiny next weekend -- it really is one of my favorite gifts -- sometimes I ask for it for Christmas too :)

I was thinkin.....if you use triple sec, you would not need "orange cake mix" as I would think that would be "orangey" enough. There's always orange extract??. 

 

and for the love of mike, you chicks are killin me with the cakes....I'll just have the Rita as we call them 'round here. Hand made, no mixes, the old fashioned way.

Thanks to the Mex cartels and crap weather. The fruit stand peeps (who get some of their produce from there) are none too thrilled.

I've been getting 4 for a buck until last week. One is  now .79 and J had to squeeze that sucker with pliers to get anything out of it. :blink:

I usually frown upon Garage Tools in the Kitchen.  I take a box of garage tools out of the house every week or so.  It's interesting too because nothing in the house is getting fixed but there's tools everywhere....huh.

My favorite is hearing them bounce around in the washer or dryer.  How many wrenches & bolts and washers can you fit into 1 pair of jeans?  1 pocket has the phone & one the wallet - so... doing the math and extrapolating from my extensive research (getting them out of the wash/dryer )- the answer is 1 wrench, 3 allen wrenches,  3 standard sized bolts, 3 pennies, 1 nickel, 1 quarter, 6 washers, 2 zip ties and 1 pair of safety googles.  Thank goodness the boys don't have any of those painters pant style with the extra pockets!

Only tools inside this house are mine and they are not allowed to migrate to the shop!

 

Cobbler's kids had no shoes.....Contractor's wife does all minor repairs (otherwise I have to hear either A: why blankity blank is not needed or B: get right to it - contractorease for one day in the future if I remember the conversation)

 

Luckily when things are leaking flooding or floating away he does spring into action dragging the boys in tow :wub:

Have to reply to myself because all joking aside, my man is wonderful about taking care of business.

 

Multi-talented, he does electrical, plumbing, woodworking, fixes cars (HUGE motor head! he had a '68 corvette when we met and he let me drive it!!) and he does fix everything. He taught me how to lay hardwood floors, plus our beautiful slate floors back in NY --around the woodstove, etc, etc,

we made that house pretty special.

 

OOH and he can get a cork out of a wine or champagne bottle in a few seconds flat. whoohoo!! (and we say whoohoo! every time it pops) 

 

I was just joshing. I always give him credit for being the handiest guy I know. 

Even if I find golf tees, nails, and other assorted things in his pockets.(do not ask)...and in the washing machine.  :lol: I have only one little boy but he's a handful LOL

Got groceries today, picked up a brownie mix since I was craving them (HEB store brand, new item, not that good to boot.  Should have gone with KAF.), and after I made it and pulled the pan out and set it on top of the stove, I reached to the top shelf of the upper cabinet to get my cooling rack down.  Burnt myself on my tummy!   So I blame you all for my fat hiney and my burnt belly, lol.  It hurts really bad even though it is a minor burn, I guess it is the location.  I burn myself often enough that I keep burn spray in my kitchen pantry, LOL.

 

Tonight will be grilled chicken with carrots and corn on the cob.  It is pretty much Mexican food season year round here in Texas so no special celebration tonight, haha.  And Cinco De Mayo is everyone's favorite drinking holiday, stay off the roads late at night.  We had tacos yesterday so I suppose that counts for an early celebration :)

You can blame me for the extra calories -- but the "Lucy" moves are all yours -- I know because I am Queen Klutz and do that stuff to myself all the time -- Irish too!

yep...still recovering from walking down the stairs a few weeks back -- just now thought to myself...yep it's much better, perhaps its time to lose the ankle brace -- um no -- tried to stand on my tippy toes to grab the Tequilla for the cake and ouchie!  

 

hope your tummy is better very soon -- I'm sure brownies will make it better :)
