Talkin Back, Again

“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!” Dr. Seuss

Then just do do them. There, done. You don't have to do anything you don't want to.

I have not been skinny dipping.

ME: See you can answer tags when your answer is "No, I have never been skinny dipping." Some of us are not so quick with the No, I've never done that.

Oh, you're official now. The money is paid and there's no turning back. I'm praying for melted snow. Promise!

ME: Emily it is a beautiful day with lots of sun your praying worked. Keep it up so that we can get outside and train.

Just in case I haven't told you lately, I love "Talkin' back".
Keep it up, please!

ME: The one thing I don't like about blogging is sometimes it seems so one sided.

BTW, did you say y'all? I love it!

ME: Yes sometimes my dad comes slipping out. :) That and reading your blog probably has rubbed off on me. :)

At first I thought you were talking about Wendy then I started reading the story, you should have used the word eccentric (sorry if that is spelled wrong.) Funny story, Funny story.

ME: We have to be impressed with how strict she is about her diet. It is hard to be that disciplined. But ya I thought it was funny too.

That makes me laugh SO MUCH.

Mmmmm.... chlorine! That marvelous chemical that keeps nasties out of our public pools, stains out of our whites, and can purify water in a pinch.

I received a similar lecture from a "health nut" when I used mineral oil to preserve eggs. I had heard that rubbing fresh eggs with mineral oil will keep the eggs from spoiling for up to a year. So, I rubbed eggs, stashed them in the back of my refrigerator, and waited patiently. We tried one egg every month. As I coated 18, at the end of the year we had scrambled eggs for breakfast (I did do a sniff check to make sure they were not rotten). My friend was appalled, "don't you know how horrible mineral oil is? I can believe you would use it for anything."

Well, I have a few "fresh" eggs in my food storage.... know what that means??? CAKE!!!

ME: I have never heard of putting mineral oil on eggs. It really worked? Guess I know where I'm headed if there is ever a disaster. Willow has CAKE!!!

I LOVE READING!!!! I almost only read books that have been recommended or that I have heard a lot of talk on. My kindle shipped on Saturday, I should have it any day know, YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, I am so excited and I am not like this normally.
happy reading.

ME: If your Kindle disappears I just want to say for the record, "I have no idea what happened to it." :)

How do you Twit on a spin bike? I've really got to learn this Twit stuff. I'm feeling so left out and confused.
Good luck tomorrow!

ME: To twit on your bike you park your bike right next to the sofa. Pop open the laptop on the sofa and twit away. It was lots of fun and I really enjoyed it.  I might have to figure out how to Twit once I get out on the road. Heck with the amount of miles I have to ride I just might come visit each and everyone of you.

The mineral oil totally worked! It was easy... rub eggs all over, place pointy end down, date carton, stash in the back of the fridge. After about 2 months, I cracked them into a seperate bowl and checked for spoilage before using them.

Terrible mother of the year moment... when our year long egg experiment was over, I made a scrambled eggs with the six remaining. I then fed the eggs to my sons. Why didn't I eat them first?... Someone was going to have to drive them to the hospital if the whole thing was a flop. Yeah, be glad I'm not your mommy.

All was well... the eggs tasted fine (yes I did taste them), and no one was taken to the hospital.
YEAH CAKE!!!!!!!!!!

In addition to cake, we also have mints, tootsie rolls, hershey kissables, and other candies. I am also working on storing the ingredients for hot fudge sauce. You know what they say, "store what your family will eat." Maybe I should have some real food on hand too....
