No matter how much I pack, it doesn’t seem to make a dent.  I guess, since we’re not having T-Day till Friday, we’ll be running back and forth from the condo all day Thursday.    The drama’s beginning  The fellow who’s truck was going to move the livingroom set  is available, but his truck is in the hospital.  Gotta see if I can rent something on this holiday weekend.  Grrrr.  It’s never easy.

My HandyFrank wasn’t interested in doing the shelving I need done before I unpack. so someone referred me to a HancyNick.  Spoke to him yesterday, and he wants to come to the condo early T-Day morning to look at what I need done.We’re not having dinner on Thursday, so it works for us.  We’ll bring some cartons  and get a jump on the day.  I figure we can make several trips.  Saturday Hubby and guys from job are bringing the furniture over.Wish I could have done floor first, but will work around it.  These are such nice people, it seriously brings a tear to my eye. Think I may get (actially buy) this area rug to put in front of tan sofa.

This is from RightatHome.com (via JusFreeStuff.com).  If you check off that someone in your household has high cholesterol, and takes Lipitor, they’ll give you a $4 co-pay prescription card good for a year.  This can really save you $$$.  They’ll also send you a bunch of nice free samples.  Not too long ago I got the Glade dispenser that goes off when you walk by, and refills for it.  Also food samples, and zip lock type bags.

Buzz & Freebie

I’ll  never be ready to move.  My sister came out and helped pack yesterday.  Really needed her.  Thanks M.  Still, soooo much to do.  Condo needs a ton of work too.  I’ll list at a later time when I’m not feeling so desperate.

On the bright side, I’m donating the furniture I bought from the nut job.  It’s only money, right?  I hate it now.  One of Hubby’s coworkers is redoing his livingroom from the floor up, and giving us some much nicer furniture.  One of these days I’ll go to a store and order exactly what I want, but not right now.  Gotta fix the kitchen and put floor in livingroom first.  People can be very, very nice.  I have to keep remembering that.

Buzz & Recipe

Went at 8 am to meet with the condo association person, Melissa, and we signed an s-load of paperwork.  Not quite as bad as closing,  but apparently necessary before we got our guest passes and bar code for the car ($14).  It wasn’t painful, other than the lack of sleep.  We would have slept there last night, but SCWA (water authority), who didn’t ask for written permission, wouldn’t turn the water on without it.  The electric was on.  A relief.  Put a bottle os soda in the fridge.  Making it homey?

**********

My Aunt Ethel made this cake for some family dinner  countless years ago, and Hubby fell madly in love with it.  It’s a total cholesterol cake, so only for rare occasions.  I make it in a bundt pan and bake it approx 50-60 minutes.  Check with a toothpick.  It’s very rich, and doesn’t need icing.

 

   
Ethel’s Hershey Syrup Cake  
1 c. sugar
1 c. sifted cake flour
1 stick butter
4 eggs
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla
1 lg. can Hershey syrup

In a large mixing bowl add all of the ingredients. Stir well. Bake in a 13 x 9 x 2 inch long narrow pan, lightly sprayed with Pam and floured, for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Download Day

By the time Hubby got home from his 6 hour class (driving thing for discount on insurance), he was really tired.  Worked till midnight the night before, and hadn’t gotten much sleep.  Never got to condo.  Hope it, sans woman with chicken leg, is still there.  Going early today.  Since I’ve been up since 3:30 am, it should be a fun day.

Giveawayoftheday.com has two good ones today.

I expect to go to the condo today to drop things off, and find an old woman with a chicken leg shaking it at the condo as she walks around it.    I’ve been cursed folks.  I can’t wait to sell the place!  I won’t go into the whole story of screaming, crazy people, but I’m sure glad I don’t believe.  Maybe once I miove in, my life will calm down.  Going to change the locks today.

I made this, and it was really, really good, and spicy.  (you can adjust that)  I didn’t have, nor was I able to find the bean paste, and didn’t miss it.

Stir Fried Spicy Eggplant
 
For Sauce
2 T oyster sauce
2 T soy sauce
2 T water
1 T white vinegar
1 T sugar
1 t sambal oelek chili paste (or less, not more)
½ t ground bean sauce (I didn’t use this)
½ t sesame oil
————————————–
1 c canola oil
1 lb (or more) peeled eggplant in 1″ cubes, or, baby eggplants unpeeled and quartered (my preference)
1 t minced garlic
2-3 green onions sliced
1 T corn starch
 
First whisk together all sauce ingredients and set aside
 
Heat up canola oil in wok or deep fryer (I used 1½ qt saucepan) to 375°. You want it pretty hot so eggplant doesn’t soak up too much oil (it’s a greedy veggie). Fry eggplant till lightly browned (in batches). Drain eggplant on paper towels to absorb oil
 
Sweat the garlic & green onions in saucepan with 1½ t of the frying oil. Put eggplant in pan to simmer for a few minutes. Add the sauce. Mix cornstarch in water and whisk into eggplant and let thicken (pretty fast). Put on platter to serve.

Latest Condo Non-Buzz & Humor

Still no closing.  Hopefully Monday.  If we don’t close by Tuesday I may lose the thousands and thousands of dollars I’ve already laid out.  I’m glad for you that you’re not in my immediate vicinity.  I’m not real pleasant to be with about now.

******

AMAZING, SIMPLE HOME REMEDIES:

1. AVOID CUTTING YOURSELF WHEN SLICING VEGETABLES BY GETTING SOMEONE ELSE TO HOLD THE VEGETABLES WHILE YOU CHOP.

2. AVOID ARGUMENTS WITH THE FEMALES ABOUT LIFTING THE TOILET SEAT BY USING THE SINK.

3. FOR HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE SUFFERERS ~ SIMPLY CUT YOURSELF AND BLEED FOR A FEW MINUTES, THUS REDUCING THE PRESSURE ON YOUR VEINS. REMEMBER TO USE A TIMER.

4. A MOUSE TRAP PLACED ON TOP OF YOUR ALARM CLOCK WILL PREVENT YOU FROM ROLLING OVER AND GOING BACK TO SLEEP AFTER YOU HIT THE SNOOZE BUTTON.

5. IF YOU HAVE A BAD COUGH, TAKE A LARGE DOSE OF LAXATIVES. THEN YOU’LL BE AFRAID TO COUGH.

6. YOU NEED ONLY TWO TOOLS IN LIFE – WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN’T MOVE AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN’T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.

7. IF YOU CAN’T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU’VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.

THOUGHTS for the day:

SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE SLINKIES – NOT REALLY GOOD FOR ANYTHING BUT THEY BRING A SMILE TO YOUR FACE WHEN THEY’RE PUSHED DOWN THE STAIRS.

NEVER, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, TAKE A LAXATIVE AND SLEEPING PILLS ON THE SAME NIGHT !
