It's been a while...

I know it's been a while since I've posted a blog. The last 3 weeks have been crazy for me. I ended up in the hospital b/c I became critically anemic. I had to get blood b/c I loss 3 to 4 pints. I had internal bleeding and I'm still recovering from that. I won't be back to feeling 100% for months so I'm just taking things one day at a time. I finally got back to work this week but I'm taking things slowly. Once I feel up to it again I'll be blogging away. :)

MMMM Cupcakes....

The boys are having a poker night tomorrow while the girls are at the movies watching "ECLIPSE". So, I thought I'd be Bonnie Homemaker and make some cupcakes for the boys to eat. I made chocolate cupcakes with chocolate icing and chocolate sprinkles. :)

Funny & gross trash story.....

Ok, so you thought that last post about what's really in your food was gross. Well wait until you hear about what happened to me today. ahahahahahaha

So.....................I cancelled our trash service months ago and I take the trash to the dump myself. We live like 5 min from the dump so I figure I could save us $60 and just do it myself. I mean why not? Growing up my dad always took our trash to the dump. I could surely do it. I bought a clear shower liner to put down in my trunk during trash days. Which is good b/c you never know if that trash bag will leak or not and at least with the liner it won't get all over the trunk. Yesterday, I grabbed the trash and put it in the trunk. Well I got caught up with errands etc and forgot to drop the trash off. :(

My mother wanted to go to lunch today. She came over at 11am. We decided to go to Olive Garden for their cheap soup, salad and bread sticks lunch. (LOVE) I told my mom that I had a few trash bags that I forgot to drop off yesterday and I figured we could drop off the bags on the way out. I opened the trunk to add one more bag and you would not believe what I found......

Yes, NASTY maggots crawling all around in my TRUNK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG I wanted to vomit. We quickly took everything out, I grabbed some more trash bags and double bags the bags and of course threw out the liner that was literally covered in maggots. (BARF)

We got to the dump quickly, dumped the trash off and then went right to the car wash to the vacuum. We took everything out of the trunk. My umberella, beach chair, and the mats. Those maggots were all in the spare tire. I believe we got every single one of them. Thank GOD!!!

Now, I'm feeling dumb. I try to save some money by doing something myself and I think I've been doing a pretty good job at it and then this crap happens today. GROSS, GROSS, GROSS!
