Hi! Well... I went and did it. I became a supporting member! I've been lurking around on AR and trying to decide if I wanted to "go public". The deciding factor - revenge on my hubby! LOL. His birthday is coming up and he has to renew his plates on his truck. So, he decides to splurge and get DU (Ducks Unlimited) plates and personalized as well. This little splurge is going to cost him $100 or so to get his plates for the year. Kinda made me mad - who spends that kind of money?? Not me! So, while I'm sitting home from work today due to a snow day (Hurray!!) I decide I'm gonna go for it and get my blue star.
So, here I am. Now - what exactly do I write about that people might actually read and comment on?? Hopefully that will come to me. In the meantime - I'll just let my mind wander; it's good at that. I work at a school (I'm a secretary in the Guidance Office of the high school). I love it. The kids keep me young now that my own have flown the coop. Today I got up at my usual time, peeked outside hoping to see a foot of snow (just so I could have a snow day) and was disappointed. So, I let the dogs out and started getting their breakfast ready when the phone rang. Yes!! I got my snow day after all. Apparently the roads were very icy. I live on a dead end street that I can't see from my house so I had no idea what it was like in the "real world".
After enjoying my coffee I decided that today would be devoted to me. I got on AR and searched for a good chocolate cake recipe. I ended up making a sour cream chocolate cake. It's cooling right now, but I'm not sure it'll satisfy my chocolate cravings. It doesn't look very "chocolate". We'll see.
So - this is my first attempt at a blog. I'm going to sign off for now - my tea kettle is calling me. It's the perfect afternoon for a cup of hot tea while I try to figure out what to have for dinner. Bye for now!!
