Grrrrr......I want to write blogs almost solely on food but today I need to rant.
First off - I made the big mistake of going to a Mexican dinner party with no flour tortillias. Everything was corn. I brought a can of refried beans but that didn't help with all the corn chips & corn taco shells. I've had a dorito every now & then, usually to have a stomach ache later but this was awful. Diahrreah (sp) like you wouldn't imagine & the worst tummy ache ever. Last time I eat corn, EVER again. Never that much. I think I had maybe a dozen tortilla chips and a taco shell filled with refried beans (beneficial) lettuce (neutral) tomatoes (nuetral) & cheddar cheese (neutral). Unlike Pedro, this was not a "holy chip" - in the movie, Pedro must be an A then....LOL!!! If you haven't seen the deleted scenes of "Napolean Dynamite" on the DVD & you like deadpan humor; definately check it out. I cracked up with my husband all night long. :-)
In case you haven't noticed, I really haven't been blogging much or been on the forums. Our DDR workout is going great but exercising for an hour 3-4 days a week does take away from computer time. The good news is, starting this summer, around late July, I'm quiting my job and staying at home for a while. It's not until you have a place & start living with someone that you realize how much there is to do. Worse part is, I actually like house work and get a sense of great accomplishment doing it but never have the time. And our place is small. If you've ever lived in a small place, you understand that they are actually harder to keep clean than a large place. Don't ask me how but, my family has proved this theory right over and over again :-)
So, this summer (end of June, after gradutation) I will stop teaching, start fixing all the meals & doing laundry & the like. And once I get a system down, start my own business from home. I've always wanted to do that and I'm fortunate that my husband actually brought up the idea. I'd been toying with wanting to be a house wife for like 8 months & then one day, as I was complaining about my job, he said "I wouldn't mind if you stayed at home & did all the work around here that needs to get done." Totally different response from when we first started dating but I'm not about to look a gift horse in the mouth!
My friends, all in their 20's, think I'm crazy. I mean, who becomes a homemaker now a days? Especially without kids? They just don't get it, I think mainly b/c they're still living at home & don't realize how much there parents actually still do for them. I know it won't be all fun and games but I'm willing to give it a try for the summer. Since we eat out a lot & Carlos gets his shirts pressed, we're hoping to save a little money just on that. And if I grocery shop once a week & only buy the things we're going to fix, that will save a lot too. (Will get weekends off, Carlos says everyone needs a break, even house wifes :-) At least I won't be stressed out by anyone but myself :-) And of course, this means more time for blogging! Yeahhhhhhh!!!! And having the time to fix all sorts of compliant meals. Double yeahhhhh!
But, since I do go to work tomorrow, I better get moving on this day.....still too much to do & too little time. Oh, I can't wait for the summer.......
PS - Carlos allergies have really been acting up. Unfortunately he's not as BTD as I am (Still eating pork, coffee, wheat & the like that bad O.....) so, I've been reading up about how pet dander sticks to the walls & how they should be washed every few weeks if you have severe allergies. And my friends think I'll be "bored"....yeah, right!
