*Sometimes I feel like a total fraud and like I have no business giving advice. Mainly this happens when I'm blogging or posting on a message board. I'll be mid sentence and think "wait, who am I to tell this person you can just make half a 9x13 recipe for an 8x8 pan?" And then I remember, "oh, cause I've done that before" and then get all excited that I can actually answer. Same thing happened tonight when I blogged about the monkey cupcakes I helped make (check out the post on Central Cooking). I was making a suggestion and thought, "oh wow, I actually know what I'm talking about about!"
*We had storm warnings popping up all around us tonight, nothing really happened here except some heavy rain but they kept breaking onto the tv to update the warnings. Doug and I joke that it takes them so long to spit out the warnings that we'll all blow away before we know the storm is here. I hate severe storms, I don't mind rain or even thunder but anything worse freaks me out. I'm a major worrier, so if there's a tornado watch I start to feel panicky and start about my routine: making sure I know where my purse, tennis shoes, keys, flashlight, and cell phone are, getting the place where we'd cower (the hallway here) cleared out, etc. Last summer when we had a fish I'd put his bowl (it was a beta so no power needed) into the tub, just in case. See? Total freak.
*That house I mentioned the other night was already sale pending, darn. But then our realtor started telling Doug about an 800-some foot 3 bdrm....... ummm, that's smaller than the 2 bdrm we rent. So now I've spent the last few days trying to figure out how you ram 3 bdrms into a house that size. The things my mind thinks about during the day :)
Ok, that's it for now. It's time for bed. Doug is going to be building our cornhole/bags/whatever you call it set tomorrow. We call it bags here but maybe that's a Midwest thing. It's going to be Fighting Illini themed (ILL - INI!). I'll post pics when we're done.
