Looong Week!

It seems like Sunday was just yesterday.

I've been in and out of this house all week. Yesterday was a shopping/lunch trip with my mom, sister, and Mary. I visited a Trader Joe's for the first time ever, and Three Buck Chuck is in the wine rack. We lunched at the Olive Garden, irritating our waitress no end by ordering the unending soup and salad. (Sorry. That's just the kinda girls we are.) I ran into a lady who had a purse made from ACU fabric; she was an officer in this organization, which will be getting some of my time in the future. We had fun bouncing back and forth to each others' table; "I like your purse, where did you get it?" "Here's our flyer; don't miss Rockin' For The Troops this summer!" "Hey, have you heard of PB2?"

Tuesday was a mission of mercy that may have been better described as a chance to lunch with a friend. We helped another friend by cleaning her house. Why is cleaning another person's house so much fun and cleaning my own such drudgery? Maybe because I see mine get dirty right away; hers will always be the pristine place we left at the end of the day.

So today was sleeping in late, eddicatin' young'uns and catching up on my own laundry. Much water was hauled for critters. Oh, and last night the vet was here to check on a pregnant goat who appeared to be going into labor a month early.

Like I said, a loooong week!

Do goats have preemies? Do they survive?

ARGH! Laundry! You had to remind me...

Melody said...

Yes and I don't know. They do have preemies, and I know of some that have survived. I think the survival rate depends on the reason. We think she's having twins and can't handle the bulk anymore. We'll see; so far, it may have been a false alarm. Goat Braxton-Hicks!

I'm that friend whose house got cleaned. (I was away with family attending my father-in-law's funeral--the death was unexpected and we left in a huge rush.) What a blessing to walk in at midnight last night and not feel the need to make the house inhabitable before going to bed! Thank you, my angels!

(Maybe we need to just develop a cleaning schedule where we all take turns cleaning each other's houses--I worked a little on my mil's house while we were away, and I agree, I found it much easier to get motivated to do that than to clean my own!)

Where do you buy the Three Buck Chuck? Did you know there was a segment about it on Good Morning America about 3 years ago? In a blind test it was rated in the high 80's or 90's. My sister told me about it. I've been trying to find it every since.

Betsy - you'll have to find a Trader Joe's.

I'd be interested to hear from someone who knows about wines how Aldi's house-brand wine compares to Three-buck Chuck.
