Darling Hubby fixed the sewer pipe last night. It only cost us about $100 dollars and 3 trips to 2 different Home Depots, Walmart, Kmart, Target and finally Lowes so we could get a replacement saw blade for his Black & Decker Navigator. Those things are darn hard to track down. No one had them but Lowes. We finally got the whole thing finished and cleaned up by 6pm. We started after lunch and spent much of the afternoon driving around looking for blades so we could cut the cast iron pipe off. Replacing it took all of 15 minutes.
After Bug went to bed Darling Hubby and I had a date night were we curled up together on the couch and watched Tropic Thunder. It was an OK movie. Darling Hubby raved about how funny it was and while I did find it funny in parts I wouldn’t say it was my all time favorite movie. Would I watch it again? Yes, I think I would. I’m sure there are things I missed the first watch through. I think the best part had to be Robert Downy Jr. “playing a dude, disguised as another dude” and the “trailers” at the beginning. I think, overall, it was a good story, but some of the language and topics might be offensive to some.
Today I baked 2 pumpkin pies. I don’t think I should have been allowed to cook today, though. I kept forgetting to add the salt to everything…first the pie crust and then one of the pie fillings. *slaps self in forehead* I think I managed to fix it well enough. I hope they are edible. I’ll be pretty disappointed if they aren’t. I hate wasting good food. They smell and look good though.
I still have to make another batch of the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins for Thanksgiving. I thought they were so good that I want to share them with Darling Hubby’s family and my parents. I told my mom about them and she even wants the recipe. I’ll probably do that Wednesday. I think tomorrow I have to figure out how to make kaiser rolls. Anyone have a good recipe they want to share? Darling Hubby wants to make BBQ pork sandwiches for dinner tomorrow and we don’t have any good rolls. I think I’ll whip up some pizza dough in the bread machine (a thing on the internet said lean dough, like pizza) and try that…At least Darling Hubby is on vacation this whole week so he’ll be around to help me. We ended up canceling our game night tomorrow since one player couldn’t make it like he thought. I’m debating on skipping craft night too and just staying home with Darling Hubby since he is on vacation. I’ll still get to work on my crafts…I just won’t spend the time with the girls. I guess it all depends on how nuts Darling Hubby drives me tomorrow! lol
Off to take something for this headache that is developing and work some more on the cream colored scarf. I got a little over 2 feet done. Only a few more to go!
