come on over

I'm so irritated with this blog I could scream.The reason I haven't posted in several days is well....because my blog dissapeared!!!! That's right.Every time I logged in it said "the URL didn't exist.ACKKK!! With that and my pics never posting where they are supposed to etc etc I've gotten frustrated and just gone off and started fresh with a new one.
This one will still be here but I'll posting at the new one.
Come on over and visit!It's a work in progress.

Mr Groundhog says................................


6 more weeks of winter.Yep,I knew it.
http://www.groundhog.org/prediction/
I really don't mind the winter that much,at least I didn't used to.I love the holidays and snow and all that but by Feb I'm usually hankering to see some green.I think most of my family suffers from that "seasonal disorder",especially hubby and my oldest son.Gosh they whine and sulk all winter long then that 1st spring day hits and they're like new people!
Speaking of my oldest son,he had one pair of jeans that fit him due to his giant growth spurt over the last 6 mos so we went to Tar-gay last night to get him a pair.
We walk in and he immediately veers off in the other direction,I call his name and he keeps walking pretending not to hear me or know who I am. I fianlly catch up with him in the clothes and he starts speaking to me and his sister in a very heavy (loud)british accent!(can we say Britney-bi-polar y'all!!!)He hasn't gone off the deep end or anything this is just his idea of being funny and amusing and embarrasing the heck out of his weary mom.I had to laugh tho he really can pull off that accent quite well!!!!lol
Yep,teenagers are a barell of fun folks.
My youngest is finally feeling better,I found out that his eardrum actually burst due to the infection.Poor little guy,that had to be so painful.
He is eating again finally,running around screaming and hurling his trucks across the room so it appears he's back to his little terrible two destructive self.
I caught 2 of my fave movies on last night,"Father of the Bride" and "Father of the Bride 2"!The 2nd one aired prior to the 1st for some weird reason but whatever.My middle daughter watched them with me and we laughed and talked about how perfect that house in the movie is.Those movies never fail to make me smile!

So I'm off to make the troops some breakfast.I guess it's Super Bowl sunday?
The only person in our house that follows football at all is my oldest daughter,I know that the Patriots are in it but I have no idea who the other team is.lol
It seems even if you don't like football you just MUST make some nachos and wings then turn on the game like you're interested.Hey,good excuse to eat some junk food!

My nutty header photo

I have been trying to change my header photo for weeks,I mean I like it but I'm wanting a new one since christmas has been over for quite a while now!
When I go in and click "remove image" it just blinks and won't let me!!!AGHHHH!!!
If anyone knows how to do it or what might be wrong please help!

Mondays...(((sigh)))

I had an ok weekend,I thought the kids were finally getting over whatever they all had then Sat night my baby came down with it.It's awful when they're sick and there just isn't a whole lot that you can do other than comfort them. He has an ear infection and when I say that I MEAN it.I've never actually been able to SEE it in one of the kids ears but I could with this one. I guess his ear drum actually burst and all the "stuff" came out.It totally freaked me out but I guess it's fairly common.NOT pretty!I'm sure it's quite painful too,poor little guy.
My girls and I sat around and watched movies yesterday which I very raely do and even when a movie is on I still get up every 5 minutes and run around.I find it very difficult to sit for that long whie I'm thinking about 25 things that need to be done.I actually sat through "Steel Magnolias"(yes,again!) and get this...."Titanic"! What is that like 3 hours long???!!!I adore both of those tear-jerkers,so as you can guess I spent more than 4 1/2 hours on the couch crying.lol I must be getting sick or something though to stay in one place for that long,I did have a very sore throat last night and have been guzzling hot tea.Please don't let me get it,what's the chance I won't tho? (slim....very slim)

I spent ALL last Sunday cooking freezer meals,this was something I'd wanted to try but never have.Well,while I have enjoyed not having to come up with dinner every night it was sooo exhausting! It took 2 days to recover from all that.Man,I'm old.
Here is a list of what I made.................
lasagna
mac n cheese
taco meat
spaghetti sauce
broc casserole
chicken noodle casserole
meat loaf
BBQ meatballs
beef n bean enchiladas
grilled chicken
lemon pepper chicken
roated rosemary chicken w/veggies
chicken n dumplings(from the roasted chicken)this was by far the whole familys fave!
I know there was a couple more but I can't remember what they were now.
It's been nice to have homemade meals every night but I'm tellin ya by last night the kids were begging for take out pizza!!! Should my feelings be hurt?lol
I might do the freezer thing again but maybe not so much in one day,lesson learned.
I actually got inspired from this wonderful lady at her blog,it's one of my faves to visit.

Tonight I'm making Easy Salisbury steak over noodles.My mom used to make this but I never really tried it till I found this recipe,it's good and easy!

Speedy Salisbury Steak


1 egg
1 can (10-1/2 ounces) condensed French onion soup, undiluted, divided
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pinch pepper
1-1/2 pounds ground beef
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cold water
6 cups hot cooked egg noodles
Chopped fresh parsley, optional
Directions:
In a large bowl, beat egg. Stir in 1/3 cup of soup, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture; mix gently. Shape into six oval patties.
In a skillet, brown patties over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove and set aside; drain. Add the water, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and remaining soup to skillet. Bring to a boil. Return patties to skillet. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Remove patties. Combine flour and cold water until smooth. Stir into pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve patties and gravy over noodles. Garnish with parsley if desired. YUM!

I actually already made this earlier today so I just have to re-heat it.

I'm hoping and praying that my baby is on the mend by tomorrow,the anti-biotics usually start kicking in in a day or so.He just seems to have gotten it so much worse than the others did.
