but I'm going to give it my best shot.
Okay, really quickly...because the above sentence made me think about this...Severyn loves to watch CMT. There is a show on CMT called "The singing bee" and we watch it on occasion. It's okay, not something I have to rush home to watch, but it's got it's funny moments. Anyhow, I LOVE how people mess the lyrics up on a song! It cracks me up! I laugh, because I do it too! I'm sure most everyone does. You're sitting in your car, the sun is shining, your windows are down and you're lost in the moment...belting out the lyrics to whatever song is on the radio (don't act like you've never done this!). So last night on the singing bee, a contestant was singing "Hit me with your best shot" but her version was "Hit me with your pet shark!". Wow. (I'm laughing now just remembering it) and then, when I think I'm finally finished laughing at pet shark contestant, another lyric crushing contestant sings "poop scoopin' boogie" to what I'm positive was suppose to be "boot scootin' boogie". **sigh** It's the little things that make me laugh.
Okay! On with the post!
So after I bellyached about how much I hated grocery shopping, I decided I needed to woman up and try a new tactic! (yes, this is what I'm saying may not last long..but whatever).
So after I made my post on grocery shopping, I went online and read a few cooking blogs, and then....I made a menu and grocery list!!
Tonight, we are having sweet & tangy roast, it's slowly simmering away in my crock-pot as I type this. I really do believe that the inventor of the slow cooker should win an award (heck, with the noble peace prize being handed out to just about anybody these days...I vote the next one going to Mr. or Ms. SlowCooker!ha! and come on, you can't tell me the slow cooker has not helped create peace among some families).
I hope I can keep this up.
So last night I got my grocery shopping done (oh and ps. I did get eggs and pie shells and I actually needed them! Go me!), I prepared my slow cooker meal for today and I decided to turn a tornado loose in my office. I am in the process of slowly pulling everything out of my office closet and going through every paper, file, box, drawer, rubbermaid container that I have. Remember, I am getting organized in 2010! The good news is, the closet is looking great! The bad news is, everything that was in the closet is now in piles on my floor! However, once again, I've been reading blogs and getting inspired. I'm also taking pictures along the way. I. Hate. Clutter.
I'll post updates along the way, we'll see how well I do at giving it my "pet shark"!
