Will I Ever Learn???

Currently Reading: I'm up to Chapter 7 on Melissa Aires' Fallen to Earth. Which ones did I buy yesterday? Keep reading; it is posted farther down.

My flash drive has killed my master TBB list. I finally decide to save the rest of the changes from the past two weeks and I cannot access it. I hate technology and I think the feeling is mutual.

All is not totally lost; I do have the first 50 titles on the back-up file. And I vaguely remember some of the titles that did not make it onto the back-up file. So technology has either done me a favor by whittling my list down to a managable size, or I'm going to miss out on some terrific books.

God I miss my printer! I may make that another priority this month...see if the one my dad gave me last year is in working condition. Or put a new one on my list for Santa.

Word Count for yesterday: (Don't laugh; I swear I'm not making this up!) 1234. Still slightly short of my 1500 goal, but I went into panic mode when I couldn't access the file on my flash drive!

Here's hoping I have a productive day; I don't have to watch the clock today, as the toddler's school is an election site. I voted absentee two weeks ago. Why? I'm holding onto my old driver's license until the last possible moment, as it expires next month.

I tried out a Banquet Crock-Pot Classics last night (K had seen it and asked if we could try it...'the Meatball Stroganoff looks good!') and while the kids raved about it, I believe I could recreate it from scratch. What's for dinner tonight? Not sure; I have my weekly writer's meeting and need something quick and simple.

Today's Stupid Saying: (Very appropriate for today!)
"If anybody shows up that's on the deceased list, we'll cross them off. If you're deceased, you're not supposed to be voting."
-Bettye Munroe, acting superintendent of elections in Mercer County, New Jersey.

Molly, good luck on the NanowriteMo. I tried once and gave up after a week. I love your last sentence about deceased shouldn't vote. Sorry about your computer problems.

I hate technology and I think the feeling is mutual. What a great quote:)
I used to love stroganoff back in my carnivore days:)
Have a productive day!

OMG!! I love my crock pot especially when the winter months roll around. I found these neat little crock pot liners at Wal Mart the other day. Supposedly they make clean up easier. I'll let you know how they work. Picked up a roast, new potatos and carrots the other day and will try it out this week. I'm ALL FOR easy clean up.

I LOVE the slow cooker liners! At first I thought, 'well hell, are we THAT lazy?' But then I tried 'em and yes, I AM that lazy! And my kids don't complain anymore when they see the slow cooker being brought out:)
