I Used to Be excited...nOw I'm just pAranOid....

Here's the 'SCOOP' LOL yes this is actually about icecream.

Awhile ago I wrote a letter dripping with disappointment to Farr.....well it was actually a post on this blog.

Anyhow the Public Relations person at Blue Bunny LOVED that I spoke so highly of them. So the guy/gal offered to send me free coupons to get more BLUE BUNNY ICECREAM. YUM!! I was SO excited.

Trevor and I researched to see if this guy/gal was legit. Well seemed to be. So I emailed him/her a shipping addy. (Not my home).

Have we received the coupons? STILL WAITING.

Am I getting a little ANnoyed? WELL NOT REALLY. THEY WERE FREE.

Am I getting a little PARanoid? YES. WHAT IF THIS PERSON IS REALLY A 'HOO HOO' OR 'LA LA' AS ANDREA WOULD PUT IT.

wHeRe aRe My fReE cOuPoNs???? :( :( :( :( oh and :O for the paranoid part.

What the KEIFER?????


Yes, this is what KEIFER looks like. Leave it for a few more days and it curds up quite well leaving a liquid underneath the curds.
You are then supposed to strain the liquid into some sort of smoothie (add bananas to kill the taste) and drink it.
That, my friends, helps to regulate the bowels, give you more energy, and build muscle mass (good source of protein).
This is basically what I call a "super-power yogurt-curd-like substance"
If you want a start....let me know. LOL
(Disclaimer: I am not usually a homeopathic typa person, but uh okay I tried it and so far it seems to be a 'super-power yogurt' .......then again, could it just be I am drinking smoothies more often, thus getting more amounts of fruit, therefore feeling 'regular' and more energy and better muscle mass?)

Yeah, UH, WHOOPS!!!!!



So we had some family visiting from out of town and of course I wanted to make my famous yummy, sauce-made-from-scratch, lasagna!!!! We came home from church and I slaved away making this yummy meal!! After getting the sauce to the PERFECT taste I began to put the layers in the casserole dish. My bag of mozzerella cheese didn't have enough in it so I grabbed another bag from the freezer. All the while the others took a nap, awaiting a melt-in-your-mouth meal:



To my surprise, after being in the oven for 45 minutes the cheese STILL hadn't melted!! WHAT THE?!?!?!?!?!?
I bravely picked off a piece to taste it just to see if it went bad or something. To my HORROR, it didn't taste like cheese at all!!! It tasted like a potato!!!! ACK!!! I put HASHBROWNS instead of mozzerella cheese!!!!!!! In spite of my horror, disappointment, and embarassment I grinned for the camera as I thought of the blog post this could turn out to be. (Most of it ended up being hashbrowns, but some was indeed cheese.......)
Well I got the table all set and woke up the crew to tell them the sad tale as to why the 'cheese' didn't melt. BLESS THEIR SOULS they ate it ANYWAY!!! :) And it actually tasted pretty good :) lol!

POOP BLESSING:

I DON'T LIKE CLEANING!!! For those of you who do, more power to you!! I love to have a clean house but just don't like the cleaning part. Cleaning with a 3 1/2 year old and a 10 month old running/crawling around makes it even harder!!!

So to the subject of SPRING CLEANING. After catching a few nasty viruses this winter season I decided our household needed some DEEP SPRING CLEANING.

However, due to my dislike of cleaning, my procrastination, my laziness, and my already exhausted self from getting over kids' bouts of sicknesses, I was NOT finding motivation to do this DEEP SPRING CLEANING.

Then one day, SOMETHING HAPPENED. Let me start this by saying we have been blessed that my 10-month-old has NEVER pooped in the tub. Well, it happened, and Trevor wasn't home to clean it up. I picked her up to clean up the MESS.

Little did I realize (sorry to be a bit graphic here) but the poop was not so solid and the water didn't help. When I picked her up, without realizing it, A LOT OF POOP got on the bathroom rug and I STEPPED IN IT. AND NO I DIDN'T REALIZE I STEPPED IN IT CUZ I THOUGHT THE RUG WAS SOPPING WET FROM GETTING HER OUT OF THE BATH!!! ACK!!!!!!!

It wasn't until I had walked through the house several times gathering some towels to put in a load of laundry that I started to notice streaks of POO on random places of the carpet. I cleaned them up wondering HOW DID POO GET FROM THE BATHTUB TO THE CARPET???

I went into the kitchen and was so sick of stepping on the letter magnets on the floor so I sat down to pick them up. It was then that I noticed MY FOOT COVERED IN POOP!!! EWWWWW!!!!! AND IT WAS DRIED ON!!! YES, that's how long it took me to FIGURE OUT that I had STEPPED IN MY KID'S POOP!!!

I went to the bathroom to clean off my foot and saw the smashed poop in the RUG. IT ALL MADE SENSE NOW!!! ahhh!!!!

THAT'S WHEN THE POOP DISASTER TURNED INTO THE POOP BLESSING!!!
I was SO SICKED OUT that I suddenly found MAJOR MOTIVATION to do some DEEP SPRING CLEANING.


I blockaded the girls in a room while I disinfected everything with lysol and clorox, the toys, the doorknobs, deep cleaned the bathrooms, washed all the rugs, opened all the windows to air out germs, washed all the blankets and beddings in the house, deep cleaned all the floors, you name it I pretty much did it. I WAS SICK OF GERMS......FLU GERMS, COLD GERMS, RSV GERMS, AND NOW THE POOP GERMS.
TOTAL HOURS OF DEEP SPRING CLEANING: 5 1/2!!!!!
OH HOW MY HOUSE SHINED!!!

My fellow bloggers. The lesson here is that LIFE IS FULL OF 'POOP DISASTERS'. BUT IF YOU GET THROUGH IT AND MAKE THE BEST OUT OF IT, THOSE 'POOP DISASTERS' JUST MIGHT TURN INTO BLESSINGS!!!!!!

YAY!!!!

SRING!!!!!!! I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO happy Springy weather is here!!!! I cannot stand the winter months! Hooray!

Here's a thought:

"It's better to shoot for the stars and land in the tree than to shoot for the tree and land in the mud!!!"

Nothing to do with Spring, but I like that quote.
