Random Ramblings...

Now that I have made my announcement about leaving my job it is becoming harder to deal with work. I know the end is in sight but I still have a major case of senioritis or quititis. It is hard not knowing when exactly my last day will be. My boss hasn't decided what to do with my position yet so she may keep me till May 9th or she may only need me through the end of next month. Does she not realize what this is doing to my countdown schedule? I know its a silly thing to complain about but I'm just ready to be set free.

I know this is supposed to be Finance Friday, blah, blah, blah but seeing as how I put in my notice at my job this week and am about to be really broke I may need to rethink it and do Frugal Fridays or something. I will need to think about this some more. Besides what was I thinking doing it on Fridays anyways? Fridays are for important things like contemplating what the heck is going on with LOST and who was eliminated from American Idol. No wonder the economy is floundering. We have priorities people and they involve TiVo. And hopefully some day Grey's Anatomy will come back to Thursday night too.

Last night we were watching Idol and enjoying some takeout Mexican food and we discovered our child is addicted to guacamole and refried beans. It was a proud moment. Although from now on we will need to order him his own because Momma and Daddy are serious about their Mexican food and don't like being yelled at for not continually shoveling it in a small persons mouth until it is all gone. This was followed shortly by someone's first pooping incident in the bathtub. We may need to rethink the whole refried beans thing again.

How good was Lost last night?!?

My boys are good eaters (have you seen pictures of them?!?) and they, too, both loved all sorts of food from a very young age. Jack still loves Mexican sweet corn cake and they both will dig in to refried beans (smothered in cheese). They branch out, too, though. Jack loves a good Chinese dumpling while Will is a spring roll/hot & sour soup kind of kid.

I love hearing about other kids who don't just eat mac&cheese and bananas!!

Sorry your countdown is getting messed with -- I would be SO frustrated!! Hang in there. Oh -- and I think Frugal Fridays is a great idea!

Ah, pooping in the bathtub. Our son did that for the first time when I was pregnant with my daughter. He stood and made a big production of it all, and I had to turn away and do a sort of internal "lalalalalalala" to keep from puking all over him. Good times.

1. The good news is, refried beans look exactly the same coming out as they do going in.

2. Being a law student makes Frugal sort of an everyday thing . . .

3. Good for you again for quitting! Work sucks!

Uh-huh. As I was reading that post I was like, dude, do they realize what those avocados and refried beans are going to smell like in about 3 hours?

Since starting this new "diet" of mine, the one thing I've been oddly craving is guacamole. I don't get it.

that was hysterical!

the first time we gave our oldest some Gerber black beans and corn, the gals at daycare complained about how many poopie diapers they had to change. We waited about 6 more months before giving it to him again...right before we went to a 1st birthday party for someone's daughter. During the 3 hours we were there, I changed 4 poopie diapers! They're not kidding about the fiber in beans!
