Gadget, School

Well, we ate the MRE, and pronounced it spicy!  The chili and macaroni was tasty, but surprisingly spicy.  The bread was dense and strange, and the cheese spread was spicy.  The red hots – spicy. All spicy, and all pretty durn tasty.  The creamsicle cookies?  Fabulous! We’re actually thinking that MRE’s might actually be handy to have on hand – you know, for the Apocolypse and everything.  Thanks again, Peggy!  (I took photos, but they looked a little strange.)

In other news, it is taking me longer than I though to put the IKEA loot to good use. I keep having distractions when there’s time to hang stuff up (like barfing children), but the housekeeping area is taking shape. I needed to have writing materials in there, so a steel strip and magnetic boxes did the trick!

Bare and utensilless

Need to make a list or something?

Ready for writing

That’s all the news from Lake Wobegone. Wait – can I get sued for saying that?

    The spiciness is to make you a better soldier. Are you growing extra hair on your chest?

    Plenty of people around here keep MREs because they must keep a 2 year supply of food. We don’t have a 2 year supply of food, but we do have a 2 year supply of booze. I wonder who will be better off when disaster strikes?

    Oh, that action photo is PRECIOUS! I feel like I’m kneeling beside that little guy while he works. WONDERFUL!!

    Do you have a wooden toaster by the sink?

      HA! Maybe it’s part of a diabolical lesson plan…Now remember kiddies to always plug in your electrically appliances to the nearest water source.

        Rent is so high in New York Preschool-land that tiny apartments with even tinier kitchens are all we can afford. We have, like, zero counter space.
