Went into Brooklyn yesterday to say goodbye to our daughter’s apartment of 9 years, and go out to lunch with her.  We drove her and The Fella to IKEA to exchange something, and then they wanted to quickly look at something.  Four hours later they finished shopping.  Grrrr  We will be glad to drive them shopping in the future, but, we’ll leave.  They can call us when they’re done.
Anyway, sent The Fella home with some of the goodies for the new apartment (my daughter is moving in Monday), and she, Hubby and I went out for a very late lunch, AKA dinner.  Very nice local restaurant in Park Slope.  They make their own sausages, in many styles, and have what I believe is hundreds of brands of beer.  Beer makes me gag, but Hubby was a happy camper.  He tried two he’d never had before.  My daughter had a “sour” beer, which she introduced me to.  I still don’t like it, but it’s better than regular.  We went back to her apartment for the last time, and spent a couple hours sitting, talking, and watching tv.  It was nice.  I’ll miss this wonderful apartment, and most totally amazing landlord.  I always felt my daughter was safe there.


I haven’t shared any Ray-Ray pictures lately.  Here’s my little guy “helping” me make the bed.

Went to 7/11 and mixed flavors in my little gift Slurpee.  It was nice, and will probably enjoy it next year too.  I usually just go to 7/11 for coffee.

I did follow the Slurpee with a trip to the gym.  I didn’t do as much as I wish I could have, but I did lat pulls, and stretched out my bad shoulder.   A bit of triceps, and then just did treadmill for a little bit.  I may not say this later, but my shoulder fells soooo much better, best it’s felt in ages, though less great than earlier.  I couldn’t used as much weight as I used to or stretch my bad arm out fully, but feel I did what I could.  Next time I’ll be able to do more.  (next morning – shoulder not as good, but better than before)


Do you love Big Lots?  I do.  I’ve been waiting for this coupon to get a little club chair (or 2?) I like.


I’m loving these at One Kings Lane.

Whole bunch of people and agencies I need to contact.  Think I’m trying to avoid it all because it may become unpleasant.  Perhaps I’ll have Blue Bunny Bordeaux Cherry Chocolate Ice cream instead.  And we wonder why I’m fat!!!

I made one of my favorite comfort food dinners last night.  Smothered pork chops.  The chops smelled just a bit off, but I washed them and cooked them anyway.  Then threw the who dish out.  Smacking me upside my head.  If the chops were good, it’s a real simple dish.

Smothered Pork Chops

pork chops (4-6) sprinkled with salt & pepper

Large onion sliced thin

Large clove of garlic chopped

1 can cream of mushroom soup (I know, I know)

In evo sprayed chef’s pan, sear the chops and remove from from pan. Throw in the onions and saute. After translucent, add garlic and saute add’l minute or two.

Add 1/8 c water to loosen up the good stuff stuck to pan. Then add the chops and then the soup, spreading it over chops

Cover and simmer 30 – 45 minutes depending on thickness of chops. They will be fork tender and yummy.

My real estate lawyer who didn’t do her job to begin with, won’t take care of the tax assessment on my property from prior owner not paying his sewer bill for what appears to be over a year.  This should not be my bill, but the town doesn’t care who they get the money from.  Lawyer won’t even contact title company, who should have found it.  I guess my next step is to go to the local Bar Assoc.  Why is everything so hard? 

Finally got through to my old apartment complex using cell phone.  They apparently don’t answer from my home number.  Still haven’t gotten deposit back.  I told her next week she’ll get a subpoena from small claims court if I don’t get it.   Said she’d get back to me.  I won’t hold my breath. 

Hubby’s worked OT the past 4 nights.  I’m actually looking forward to having a featherless biped to talk to.


I use Jergen’s Shea Butter every day.  I know I’ve written about it here before.  Here’s a $1 coupon.

Went to the doctor this morning about my no longer broken shoulder.  Apparently it’s all healed, but the huge calcium deposit in the tendon is causing more pain than the break.  My choices were a cortisone shot or surgery.  Well, you know how well surgery has worked for me so far.  I took the shot.  I still can’t lift the arm without pain, but I”m not getting the shooting pain down my arm.  I know there were some pain killers in with the cortisone.  We’ll see what happens when they wear off.


I’m a BzzAgent.  It’s pretty cool.  I get to try products and review them, give feedback, and often get coupons to share with friends.  I just joined a campain for Ristorante Pizza by Dr Oetker.  They look totally yummy.  I”ll keep you posted when I try them.

If you’re interested in signing up, let me know and I’ll get you an invite.
