Can't be outdone on an exciting Saturday night

Since Tanya has decided to start posting, I figure that I shouldn't be outdone by a pregnant lady.

My day was much more exciting than Tanya' started as any normal day does in the middle of the night when Tanya wakes up every couple of hours to go to the bathroom. Then about 6:00AM she wakes up and needs to eat breakfast number 1 and then at about 6:30 decides that she will torture me and tries to wake me up and eventually she gets me up to make her a second breakfast because it is cold on the porch- which is where our toaster is.

Then after that, my parents dropped off the trailer so Hippert and I could load the old washer and dryer and get them over to Brian's storage unit. We load them up and put them in the storage unit and proceed to help Allison, Forest, Jim and Brian move all of Brian's things into the unit and pack it front-to-back and top-to-bottom.

Then we go to Sal's to eat lunch. This is followed by looking at a potential truck to purchase from Forest's dad. Then we go back to Foster Ave to look at a beautiful dish set (hmm...we picked up 2 "sets" today) my aunt wants to give us. Then we go to LNT (Linens N' Things) and Target and pick up the Cookware set and ironing board...come home, iron for 45 minutes, eat dinner, and start blogging and then my parents pick up the trailer and try to talk me out of buying the truck because it is an American Truck with 87,000 miles on it.

New Cookware

Sooo my terribly exciting event of a normal March Saturday was tearing down 4 layers of 50 year old wallpaper which just pissed me off because it was just tearing the drywall beneath it. Oh sorry, that was far from the highlight of the day and I would probably consider it the low point. The best part of the day was when we purchased my pretty new cookware at Linens N' Things because they were having a sale.

The reason we needed to buy a cookware set was because Mike was making breakfast last week for Mary and Hippert and annoyed himself with our cheapa$$ non-stick frying pans. Then on Sunday he tried making pancakes again and again annoyed himself because the pans would not sit flush on our new glasstop stove and so wouldn't cook evenly and so tossed them out and has been slowly tossing out the other pans that aren't flat against the stove. Thus it left us with 3 pans to cook with in total- which isn't that many if you have ever made a full meal since I pretty much use all three every single evening in dinner preparation. Anyways- Mike who doesn't really cook much (he prefers baking decadent desserts because it's much more scientific) decided that cooking with cheap cookware is ridiculously stupid - even though he is the one who purchased the cheap cookware to start with. So he decided that we needed to go buy new pans right away and I was happy to comply with his demands (must be submissive) and now I have a brand new set of pots and pans- 10 new peices in all which means I have 13 pots and pans in all!!! I am pretty sure that is enough to make dinner with-although I still need a steamer.

In other news- we finally bought an ironing board too- Its been over 3 months since we moved and I have managed to avoid ironing anything- well Mr. Clean himself decided that his new dress shirts must be all fresh and clean and starched for Palm Sunday since he is lectering and so again we headed out to make a neccessary purchase... we get home and Mike procceds to iron his new shirt and tie (whereas I try to avoid the ironing board at all costs) Meanwhile he is using our less than perfect cheap iron which proceeds to leak water all over his "silk" tie- He gets annoyed and threatens to throw the iron into the garbage--- at which point I had to intervene otherwise we will certainly go broke as, if you can't tell, Mike likes to throw all things away when he gets annoyed at them- Anyways so now we (I mean I) feel like a real domestic diva with an real ironing board and REAL cookware!!!! :o)

Stay Tuned to find out what Mike throws away next...


A new blogger....

Mike and I have decided that we would move into the 21st century - something Mike is good at with all his technological gadgets and hobbies - and give in to peer pressure and start a blog like everyone else. We are sure you all are dying to take an inside peek at our horribly exciting life! :o)

And here begins the story of a happy husband and wife who are celebrating their last months as a two-some. Yes that is right- Baby Keira Vigneau is getting a little crazy and restless in utero (not unlike her mother- who is just very crazy and restless but certainly is not in utero)

Anyways- welcome to our blog- We hope we can keep you entertained. :o)
