Weekend Recap

February sucks.

Peaches, who is only a year old, no longer wishes to nap in the afternoons. She has been screaming her displeasure for a week. This won't do.

I have officially eaten my last Girl Scout Cookie. I can't stomach another one.

Instead, I've switched to this: In case you can't read the description on the bottom, it says, "Thick Buckeye Fudge Flowing Through Peanut Butter Ice Cream Loaded With Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Buckeyes." If you put that quote to porn music, LOOK OUT! Ice Cream Porn. Now that's some porn I could get excited about.





Making and eating 45 a few fried crab rangoons because one doesn't know how many a recipe makes (they were supposed to be an appetizer--not a meal) do NOT cause a heart attack. Yet.

The Constant Gardner: Wow Wow WOW!

Mr. & Mrs. Smith: Not so much.

Milestone in Baby Girl's Life: I took her to see her very first movie in a theater this afternoon, Curious George. Of course, I started to get misty-eyed and weepy the second I heard Jack Johnson's sweet voice starting the movie; I think because I usually listen to Jack Johnson on a Friday evening with a frosty cold Red Stripe in my hand realized how sweet and special this moment was for my little girl.

Herr's Interview Update: Things are progressing nicely. Herr had a telephone interview with a Pharmaceutical company based in Cambridge, MA on Friday and has another one scheduled for Tuesday with a company in Wilmington, DE. I only spent 4 hours on Realtor.com crying looking at the cost of real estate in those two locations, as opposed to the 12 or so hours I spent on Realtor.com last weekend.

My friend Amy is in town until Friday!!! Yippee! We'll put our three-year-olds in charge at home and we will go hit the mall.

Okay, I'm a weekend behind you with the foodstuffs--I'm heavily into GS Cookies but will try and find the buckeye ice cream--good stuff.

And let's make a crying date to look at real estate together. Who knew Salt Lake City would be expensive to move to??

One note of hope: D gave up one of his naps for almost 2 weeks and then IT CAME BACK. I felt like I was seeing visions at Lourdes. So don't give up hope! Hey--can I blogroll you?

Absolutely Stefanierj! I don't even understand what blogrolling is, but go for it!

New Jersey Amy? YAY!!! Tell her I said Hi!!!

Kara said...

Cambridge, MA!!!! YAY HAUSFRAUS!!!

Now, you couldn't actually *live* in Cambridge. No no no. Too crowded, no place to park. Seriously, If you need help figuring out the lay of the land in the Boston area, gimme a hollah
(that's boston-speak for call/ email me).

You see, things are coming around nicely..... Have a look at real estate prices in Cambridge before you decide seriously to move. For the price of a nice house at your present location you will get a small tool shed with no heating in Cambridge. Sorry to be so negative but that's my specialty (according to my wife)

Well, I can't pretend to understand the whole working-for-a-corporation-married-with-kids-in-the-suburbs thing, because I never will, it frightens me, and it did even before I saw The Firm, but if it's true that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result, maybe you should shake things up a bit. Maybe you could find a full time job there or someplace you want to be and the Chemist can stay at home for awhile.

Girl Scout cookies I fully understand.

Mr&Mrs Smith was worth the rental price solely for the crack about how 'useful' the minvan doors were.

Crab rangoons . . . mmmmm . . .

Mmmm. That ice cream sounds almost better than sex. Almost. But still...you might want to eat it in a soundproof room if you're a screamer...

kimmyk said...

I've seen that ice cream....i've eaten lots of that ice cream...my thighs love Velvet!

MA and DE huh? Not bad....I'd love to live somewhere on the east coast....way better than Ohio....right?

Alisyn said...

That ice cream sounds AMAZING. I'm a chocolate and peanut butter whore; gimme a pint, and I'm yours for the night.

stefanierj said...

Blogrolling=adding you to my "me likey" list.

Thanks, MH!

stefanierj said...

Oh, and if you're not going to use "better living through yelling" for a while, can I use it if I give you credit? That is the funniest blog tag line EVAH.

Misfit Hausfrau said...

Sure Stefanierj! Thanks!

Kristen said...

Okay, that ice cream? MUST HAVE IT. NOW.

Damn you and your informative ice cream tips.

It could be worse -- yo could be moving to SF or (gulp) Tokyo, where you would end up paying twice as much to live in one-fifth as much space!
