We closed on our new house on Wednesday and it’s been a whirlwind since! Oh my good stars, am I tired. But, I love my house. There is so much space. My table fits and I have a closet and… oh, I can’t even begin to describe how happy I am to have a closet again. I have hangers and shoe space and shelves. My room doesn’t look like a clothing store blew up in it.
Okay, I need to cook dinner. We’ve had to eat out for a few days because we didn’t have a fridge. My budget nor my waistline can handle all that. So it’s time for homemade again. We’re having homemade guacamole and chips with whatever we can scrounge to cook on the grill.
Well, the Panhandle is on lockdown. So far, we’re keeping sane but I imagine it’ll get harder the longer we’re isolated. Today is my little girl’s 12th birthday. Our plan is to run get a simple cake and some ice cream (we waited to go grocery shopping until today). She’s requested a few items too. We may do some take-out depending on what she wants.
It’ll be nothing like a typical party, but it’ll be okay. We’ve told her when this is over (and eventually it will be), we’ll throw a party. Last year’s was a blast because she wanted a bouncy house, burgers, hotdogs, and jalapeño poppers. We soaked those peppers for four days so they were edible for the wimps (that’d be me). If you’re wondering what we did to kill some of the heat, we used lime soda and changed it out 2-3 times a day. In the end, there was only one or two scorchers. If you’re wondering how I know that, it’s because I was the lucky one who picked them out. Otherwise, they were delicious.
