*Warning for language.

I actually met this group in like 93-94. I met the lead singer in the bathroom!! She was kick ass and took me back to meet the group. They were all really nice and gave me a copy of thier tape (told you it was in the early 90’s). This song is my fav from them. Her voice rocks.


Went to the library. I didnt get any books, but C (age 9) got a childrens sign language book. He has been very interested in American sign language and this is the second time he checked out this book. Fun!! N is really into Goosebumps. I dont know when or how he found out about them, since he is only four. Ms K got a book about the Titanic. She is definitely going to be OUR daughter and be a history buff.

Went to Del Taco. I know that I shouldnt eat there, as I need to lose about 100 lbs. But it is so tasty, and so cheap. I got the chili cheese fries. But I only ate half of them. That is saying something.

Went to buy wood. Hubby is a big BBQ freak. Its a serious obsession. He is the only cook in the house, so every night, rain or shine, he is outside BBQing. We got Grape wood, Red oak, Alder, and Pecan. It will be interesting to see (or taste) the different flavors that will come of our food.

We went thru boxes. It is very sad, but we have ALOT of our stuff in boxes. (We dont have our own home) We are trying to condense our stuff so when we do move (hopefully next summer) we dont have crap, and we are organized. So we got 10 boxes down to 4. Yay.

We had dinner. Stir-fry. It was okay. The chicken was really good. (DH bbq’dit) And the veggies were good once they were covered in teriyaki sauce.

And now, I blog.

Day 15. Still having them.

Went to Dr today and he says that he doesnt think they are migrains. Okay. He thinks it has to do with me not getting enough sleep. Soooo, he changed my sleep aid meds. We will see how it works.

You know how you can see what people have typed in to find your blog? What is the weirdest thing people have typed in to find you? Mine?

Fifty Years of Math 1957 – 2008

( A story from my friend, Kimber):
Last week I purchased a burger at Burger King for $1.58.  The counter girl took my $2 and I was digging for my change when I pulled 8 cents from my pocket and gave it to her.  She stood there, holding the nickel and 3 pennies, while looking at the screen on her register.  I sensed her discomfort and tried to tell her to just give me two quarters, but she hailed the manager for help.  While he tried to explain the transaction to her, she stood there and cried.  Why do I tell you this?Because of the evolution in teaching math since the 1950s:

  1. Teaching Math In 1950s
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.  His cost of production is 4/5 of the price.  What is his profit? 

 2. Teaching Math In 1960s
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.  His cost of production is 4/5 of the price, or $80.  What is his profit?
 3. Teaching Math In 1970s
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.  His cost of production is $80.  Did he make a profit?

 4. Teaching Math In 1980s
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.  His cost of production is $80 and his profit is $20.  Your assignment: Underline the number 20.
 5. Teaching Math In 1990s
A logger cuts down a beautiful forest because he is selfish and inconsiderate and cares nothing for the habitat of animals or the preservation of our woodlands.  He does this so he can make a profit of $20.   What do you think of this way of making a living?  Topic for class participation after answering the question:  How did the birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down their homes? (There are no wrong answers, and if you feel like crying, it’s ok.

Un hachero vende una carretada de maderapara $100. El costo de la producciones es $80. Cuanto dinero ha hecho?

Today is going on day 12 of my headache. If you havent heard about it, which you probably did not because I havent blogged about it, It started on Tuesday of last week. Just a mild dull ache in my forehead and right temple. I didnt think much of it, really. I dont have problems with headaches.

So when it hit day 3, I finally said something to hubby and the girls at work. By Friday (day 4) it was really bothering me. Still, it didnt hurt that bad. Just the dull ache. Once in a while I would get a sharp pain, but nothing I could deal with.

On Monday, I still had the damn thing, so I went to the Dr. They gave me samples of Maxalt- which is for migraines. It didnt help. They also gave me a muscle relaxer, just in case it was due to tight muscles in my neck. Again, didnt work. (I did sleep well though.) Motrin 600, didnt work. I have Vicodin, didnt work.

By yesterday (Friday) I called the Dr again. She wasnt in, but they did call me back, and told me that the other Dr in the office wanted me to come in and be seen, instead of them just calling in an RX for me. Of course it was a Friday, and they wernt going to see me then. I now have to wait the whole weekend, and I cant get in until Tuesday. (They did have an apt on Monday, but I cant get off work.) and of course, it is no longer a dull ache, but a full blown pounding.

I did get some Excedrin migraine (which by the way is EXACTLY the same as Extra strength), and just popped one of those. Hubby said when he got migraines before, he could take a Vicodin and it wouldnt help but this did. So heres hoping. I will keep you all updated.

Here is what you need: (Remember I have a large family. You can adjust it to your liking.)

  • Chicken. Cooked and cubed. 3 breasts.
  • Cream cheese. 2 containers.
  • Croissants. The tubed kind. 5 of tubes.
  • Cream of chicken soup. 3 cans.
  • Greased cookie sheet.
  1. Preheat the oven to 425.
  2. Mix together cream cheese, soup, and chicken in a bowl.
  3. Spread out the croissants.
  4. Scoop some of the filling onto the croissant.
  5. Roll them up.
  6. Pop in the oven for 11-13 minutes or until golden.

Tada. Soooooooo good. Variation: Instead of croissants, use pizza crust. Throw in the crust for a few minutes before  using the filling as the toppings, or the dough wont cook all the way. Again, sooo good.
