Expiration Date

Expiration Date

So yesterday’s adventure was looking at expiration dates.   Fig Newtons expired in May of 2013 and the Oreo’s were good until 2012 sometime.  And my mom buys Top Ramen like she is in college and poor.  And who has Progresso soup that expires?  Im pitching everything in this photo as it is WAY past its shelf date.  Thankfully the RIce A Roni was safe!!!

Mom’s vision continues to improve, unfortunately that does not help her hoarding problem.    I am reorganizing her pantry and told her if it doesnt fit in the space I give her – SHE MAY NOT BUY IT!   I had to make 3 shelves just for dog food and treats…She has 4 GIANT bags of Pupperoni – or whatever its called. plus about 5 other kinds of treats too.

Went out with the girls from high school last night again…fun as always. We laugh a lot.  I will try and post pictures from last Thursday’s happy hour…..

This poor 28 year old guy and his 23 year old fiance decided to sit at the end of our table.  Big Mistake!  That is his dessert .  We abused them but they were good sports!  Frightening that we all have children (adult children) their age!

Mom (AKA – the old bat) had cataract surgery on Monday. Everyone said they could see better right away, naturally this is not what is happening in her case.   Vision is still blurry and feels like something in her eye.  Went back for follow up today…and doctor said her vision will get better but her eye is just swollen but will be better soon.   Until then I will be chauffering her around.  After her appointment today, we bought a new sink , faucet and garbage disposal.   Last week we ordered new carpet to be installed.  She  loves it when I do all of this maintenance stuff…..well, really I just spend her money.   While I slave away here caring for the invalid…..what are my siblings doing?   Well Jason just got back from Hawaii and Justin is in Bali!   Jay (Jennifer my sister) she is in Modesto, which is a lot like Bali only  NOT!  Ill give Jay a pass as she is coming this weekend ……..and ……..she has to live in Modesto.  This will all backfire on them when the old bat kicks and I get the house!!!   I am the apple of mom’s eye……see what I did there???  Look at the picture closer!!  I am just too clever today.

Good Friends!

Thank you Liz for this amazing quilt!! Morgan had a billion sorority t-shirts so I asked Liz to make her a quilt. It had to have taken so many hours of work, although I wouldn’t know since I did NOTHING! It looks great and Morgan was so surprised when I sent it to her. I owe you!
