Called condo lawyer this morning.  Still hadn’t heard, though she keeps after them.  I just want my money back.  Disgusted.

I do reviews as a BzzAgent, online.  This time they sent me CoverGirl NatureLuxe makeup to try.  I was a bit leary of using a liquid makeup on my old woman face, but I have to say, it did not accentualte my lines, and I got a great compliment.  Hubby, who hates makeup, couldn’t tell I was wearing  anything, but did notice the circles under my eyes didn’t look as bad as usual.  (Perhaps I should try sleep too.)  Covergirl has always been my go to brand for drug tore cosmetics.  I always use their professional waterproof mascara, and I love their ageless makeup.  You really can’t go wrong.

We don’t usually do Easter, so we went to Chili’s for their special yesterday. I know a lot of people complain about Chili’s, but we ate good.We had loaded fries, bacon on the side, because Hubby doesn’t like it.  Lots of jalapenos.  The margaritas were terrific..  They were out of margarita glasses so gave us full water glasses.  Probably double size.  I was happy.  Hubby, who doesn’t usually drink anything beside beer really liked his too.  Then I had ribs, and Hubby had a big bacon-burger (bacon on the side, for me, again) and they actually made it as rare as he likes it.  Both came with a load of good, but not the best  fries.  I wil have half the ribs and fries for lunch today.  Dessert was molten lava cake with a large ball of Magic Shell covered ice cream on top, and a fudge sauce.  Really good.  I came home stuffed and smiling.


Ray would probably love this, but he has no claws, and I’m afraid he’d hurt his pads.  Good deal with all the stuff you get, I think.  From Nikki’s Freebie Jeebies.

My lawyer never got back to me yesterday, so I called her this morning.  The other lawyer never got back to her yesterday, so she called this morning, and they’re closed.  Probably a Good Friday thing.  Won’t hear till Monday.

Just got the word that Hubby will be laid off for the summer.  I can’t do another 3 months of 24/7, so I’m going to start job hunting for him.


If you don’t celebrate Easter (and you don’t do Passover), and, you have one of the good Chili’s near you, this seems like a great deal for Easter Sunday.


 My daughter’s blog was amazing yesterday.  If you have self image problems (who doesn’t?), you should read it.

I got a call call from the condo lawyer yesterday.  NOW, that I want my deposit back, Wells Fargo wants to close on the condo.  I’m beginning to wonder if it’s really Wells Fargo, or the seller’s real estate compny causing all the problems, but, I’ve heard that Wells Fargo is screwing everyone, not just me, and not just short sales.  I still don’t know if the seller agreed to my terms about the furniture and appraisal.  Should get an answer later.

Went to the doctor.  I don’t have bronchiatis, I have sinus and ear infections.  On an antibiotic, and do seem to feel a bit better today, but didn’t sleep last night.  At 2:30 am I was making turkey salad.  Finall, fell asleep around 5am, after taking an Alavert,  and woke up at 9.  Now I think I”m too tired to cough.

Since Hubby took yesterday off from work (has to use up personal days before May ends), I got to go food shopping.  I have loads of zucchini and eggplant, got a couple beautiful suntan bell peppers, and some salad makings.

Tax return still isn’t done, but my preparer said I shouldn’t be penalized since I did submit it on time. We shall see.

Buzz & Video

Sorry about yesterday.  Blowing my nose too much to type.  Going to the doctor today.  May have bronchiatis again, with my cold.  Hubby is sick too, and Ray doesn’t seem to be feeling well, but it may be that he’s insulted because I’m trying not to breathe on him.

Tax craziness.  For the first time, I owed, because I sold my IRA’s for the condo I’m probably not getting.  My tax person sent it to IRS twice, and it bounced both times.  I hope I”m not going to end up with late charges.  UGH!

Just a quick video (rom my cousin), and I”ll try to get back with more after the doctor.
