Well, I missed a day writing yesterday but I was really sick. My throat has not been so sore since I can remember and it made it hard to breathe because even that hurt. It’s still sore today but not like yesterday, holy hell, it was bad.
We did end up getting about 5 inches of snow and that turned into a day off for the kids. Marshall and one of his friends went around the neighborhood shoveling and made some money, so he was good and tired for the rest of the afternoon and night. Regina’s boyfriend came over and they watched tv all day and Adian stayed home from work because the roads were in bad shape.
I made a one pot fettuccine alfredo dinner last night and guess what? It was like the simplest thing ever and tasted pretty dang good. I only wish I had some shrimp to throw in there and it would have been fantastic. Here is the recipe if you are interested. It used things most people have on hand it really it was one of the easiest dishes ever. I’ll be making it again when I don’t plan ahead and everyone is bugging me about being starving! I just love simple recipes like this!
Today I want to deep clean my kitchen, speaking of the kitchen the stupid dishwasher is leaking and we really can’t avoid replacing it any longer. It’s been in need of replacement since I bought the house 10 years ago and I’ve been putting it off and putting it off. In my defense every time I am in Lowes I walk through the ding and dent section hoping to find an LG waiting for me there, steeply discounted, but I haven’t had any luck yet. I suppose I’ll have to break down and buy one brand new but I really don’t want to pay a billion dollars :( On the plus side I will have a beautiful, brand new dishwasher that really works well!
In the past year we’ve replaced almost all of the major appliances and systems in this house, new washer and dryer, refrigerator, water heater, furnace, and 3 ac units. The only 2 items left are the dishwasher and the stove. I still have a balance left on the refrigerator and really wanted to pay that off before moving forward on the dishwasher but it is what it is. Hand washing dishes isn’t a long term option for me. Been there, done that, hated it, and don’t have the time, especially with a new baby on the way. This is the story of adulthood, isn’t it?
Well, I hope you all have a great Wednesday! I just heard Henry crying so I better get up there and see how he is doing this morning.
