Actually the dumplings came out rather well, of course cardboard tastes good when its covered in gravy too. So, I had that last night, tonight is left over prime rib, and tomorrow will be more of the chicken again. Good thing I like leftovers!

How far away does your brother live?
munich, so not like he's running over to assist... ;-D he did offer his credit card, however, so maybe i can treat myself... ;-)

we went back to my parents house today, and things really do seem less bad over there than they could have been. my parents learned decades ago not to store anyting precious on the lower levels of tehir storage shelves. i'm cleanign the floor, getting the water heater replaced and a quote for a new furnace, but they've got to hand wash all their own crap and pick out a new washer & dryer. we think it was about 2.5 feet of icky water there...

that was a surprise shift for us... my SIL made a comment about bro HAS to go to the store by 1 (there's a larger one that they go to that is about 1/2 hr drive) so that he'd make it in time.

nice to have family time....

Wow and an extra wow re day waiting on contractors.Here is a virtual drink with a coupon ( I was going to say rain check, but thought better of it) for a real one. My parents had seepage . They are in Lincolnwood not far from the Pratt underpass that always floods and closes the Edens. We had our usual seepage but neighbors across the street looks like they had a bad flood in teh basement based on the stuff at the curb.

I am off to hear a Mariachi Opera in downtown Waukegan . Chicago peeps can understand how weird that sounds but for a $10 ticket at a refurbished historical theater, I'm game.
Wednesday I get to hear a Tango Opera downtown.

Its not Rush but it "still rock and roll to me" sorta.

Thanks!

It started at 5, so pre-sunset. The weather forecast was for storms but while it was overcast on and off, the weather held out and was gorgeous. The clouds kept our friends and families from getting too hot out there.

Oh, I agree!

I asked the coordinator yesterday midday what happens if there's lightening and she told me the official options but then said that they've never had to cancel a beach baptism. Totally makes sense to me....

Here are the btches, btches. Someone else will have to take over for a while, I'm on the unemployment line for the next two weeks. Gotta try to find another job, I don't think this one is going to last much longer.

So, our chat with SIL went over like a lead balloon. It pretty much ended...nay, began, with her storming out of the restaurant.

Casual conversation about them switching schools and why do they think that it will be different socially. What if it's not? Her: "I'll just isolate myself even more. Us: That's not really an answer. If you're going to be a psych major, you're going to have to stop being so hyper critical of other people. Her: "I'll switch majors." That's not the answer, either. You need to learn to deal with people and make friends. Plus, your future husband here is going to be a pastor. Pastor's wife is a job in and of itself which requires you to deal with people diplomatically. Her: "What can I say? I'm a d1ck. I don't want to talk about it." (storms out of restaurant) And I thought she wasn't self-aware. Cue to us having a 20 minute convo with the fiance about it while she sat outside pouting.

Is she just young? Insecure? You and J are family, but behavior like this is likely to drive away a fiance.
