Can Wine go bad in the wine fridge? Lately it seems that every bottle that I open tastes..... well, weird. Maybe its me...... I have to wonder if maybe because my wine fridge doesn't maintain a set temperature when the power goes out. Ok, let me
babble explain. If the power goes out, my wine fridge resets itself to a balmy 56 degrees and I like to keep it on 46. I have whites in there after all! So if I don't realize it, the wine gets warm. Then I turn the temp down and it gets cold again. Can that make my wine go bad? OH I HOPE NOT! If so, then the wine fridge is USELESS! Maybe I just need to drink more. As long as my job doesn't find out! YIKES!
I put up 2, yes count them 2 ceiling fans this weekend! Thanks Daddy! you're the best!
I was supposed to get educated on Understanding ADHD but the presenter got lost. Of course when you consider the county where I live (Little Bit of Country) and the fact that they were coming from North Jersey its not surprising. The surprise is that they called me 10 minutes after I left to say they were there. Great. I was almost home by then. (on country roads you can haul ass!) I didn't turn back. I went to Son's schools open house.
Which is another mini rant. To me the definition of Open House is that you come in during a set time, wander around, talk to who ever you want and leave when you want. Not at Son's school. If you want to meet a teacher, you have to be there at a set time, when the teacher is lecturing about that particular class. I missed hearing from all the teachers. Oh well. I have been emailing with 2 out of the 3 of them already. Shoot 2 of them taught ME!
I might have upset the teacher. He has been addressing me as Mrs. Ok, DUDE, just cause I have a kid doesn't make me a Mrs. If you call me Mrs, I look for my ex mother in law! I tried to correct him gently in my emails back to him, signing them Ms. But he just didn't get the hint. Today, I asked him to address me by my first name or Ms. Thank You Very Much.
A friend of my ex sent me some pictures of YEARS ago. OMG! I was skinny and blonde! And that was the day we set the neighboring junk yard on fire! Too funny now! SCARY that day! But that's for another post. With the pictures. See me on Friday......
Jaxon is bent on destroying all his soft toys. Any stuffed animal (including Jakes stuffed animals) that come into the house, he thinks is his to destroy. I have picked up SO much stuffing and little plastic eyes. I should be grateful he's just pulling them apart and not eating them. And happy that my Evil Step Mom (her nickname, not mine!) gets then cheap at yard sales! Thanks ESM!
Halloween is coming. Son wants to be a Whoopy Cushion. Really? Are you kidding me? GROSS. But since he is scheduled to be with his Dad that weekend, Have a blast! not my year to wander the neighborhood with him. I will be at an adult party! Wooho! As long as I finish my costume! Got to get sewing!
I am a certified election worker for the State of New Jersey and we are having an election on 11-2-10. I have been offered a chance to work the election but its a TUESDAY when I have choir practice. Which is something I am LOVING being a part of. But working the election is $200! And easy boring $200 the month before Christmas. Oh the Dilema!!! I need to decide quickly so if I say no, they can get someone else with a little notice.
Oh. My pictures don't really have anything to do with my post, I just wanted to add to my randomness!
Speaking of my job. Yes, I know we weren't really but follow me here. Its coming into my busy time of year. All the counties that we get money from are offering up new contracts that I have to write applications for. That's SEVEN counties and they usually need one application for each service. So if we are servicing adults AND adolescents, there is two applications for one county. Then if the county is offering prevention monies, I have to write for that as well. For ONE of the counties, I have to write 4 separate applications. For the most part, its just copying and pasting from last years but I do have to update the stats (boring!) and the staffing.
Ok. Go see Keeley for more randomness if you are feeling brave!
