I'm surprised I still remember how to use Blogger

Sometimes when TheOldMan gets medical journals in the mail, I like to (try to) read them. He is a Clinical Laboratory Scientist. I was reading something about pharmacogenetics and realized after I couldn't get past the first paragraph, that I am happy that I'm not the smartest person in the house.
I grew up smart but didn't apply myself. I'm glad my kids have a parent who is smart and works hard to learn more and be his best.
I like it when he talks about lab stuff. I like to follow along for as long as possible.

Snickerdoodle has a good throwing arm. If he turns out to be good at sports, awesome. But I'm very glad he has a dad who is good at science. Hopefully, he'll be smart and good at sports. He'll be unstoppable ;) Plus he's cute.

That's all I have for now. Since I haven't blogged for awhile....Here you go

A blog about my shower curtain

Yes, about my shower curtain. Ridiculous excuse for a blog topic? Yes but it's my blog so I shall blog what I want to blog!
OK, here's the deal. I really like my shower curtain. It is clear at the top and doesn't have hooks.
It looks like this:


You can see through the top but still have privacy. That's nice for several reasons.
  1. Today I took a shower in the afternoon and because it was sunny outside, there was enough light coming through my shower curtain that I didn't have to turn on the lights. Yay for saving energy!
  2. You can see if there is someone hiding in the shower. That's just good to know when you're home alone.
  3. When you take a shower, you can know if someone is coming into the bathroom. No Psycho-like surprise attacks. It's just good common sense to have a see through shower curtain.
PLUS this shower curtain doesn't have hooks! How awesome is that?! I'm pretty sure I got our shower curtain at Walmart (boo) but I didn't see it at walmart.com so if you click on the picture, it should link you to bedbathstore.com. You could get it there.
So that is my blog about my shower curtain. I like mine and I'm not ashamed about that.

Being this awesome can be a burden



"The Gang" is all together this weekend so since the group includes some big guys and 3 preggos, I decided to make an indulgent dessert.
I borrowed my new friend Hilary's Pampered Chef Trifle Bowl (thanks Hil!) and concocted an easy but fancy dish.
I used a boxed devil's food cake mix and threw in some chocolate chips. To cut down on the fat and sugar (haha), I used ff/sf vanilla pudding and light whipped cream. So cake on the bottom layer then pudding then whipped cream. Then in the food processor I chopped up some Thin Mints that were in the freezer and then sprinkled that on top of the whipped cream. And then repeated the layers.
I only used 2/3rds of the cake because that was all the layers I could fit in there. I wish it was a little prettier but who cares what it looks like when it tastes that good.
So right now it is chilling in the fridge and in a few hours, hopefully, we will all be enjoying it.
We don't get together that often so we are celebrating and eating well.
