Can I brag and tell you I got both these suits for 5 bucks + shipping on eBay last summer? They're not what I would typically buy but they were like new and so cheap I couldn't resist! They looked like little sweethearts at church today and of course everyone oohed and aahed over em. I don't know if you can tell but they have ribbon rosebuds sewn on the collars. Okay, enough of that.

Excitement is a word that doesn't even start to describe how I felt when I checked my email earlier and Echo had sent me a mock up of my new blog design!!! I have been through so much CRUD trying to get a new template (not with her) but I had problems with the first company I hired (and prepaid I might add) and ended up with NADA from them - no design, no money back, plus alot of attitude. Not a good experience. Why I didn't just go w/ Echo first I will never know. My life would have been sooo much easier.

And all I did was send her some graphics and basic ideas and she came up with the bomb design. Sorry you'll have to wait a little longer to see this masterpiece!

Anywasy about eBay, it takes me so long when I start listing stuff to get my template setup, load photos, blahblah. So today I got a grand total of 1 big listing up out of the maybe 50 I need to do. I put a Buy It Now on it just for the heck of it and lo and behold, somebody snapped that sucker up in like 2 hours. Alright! That inspires me to keep on trucking. Tomorrow I will get at least 8 more auctions up. It's worth it in the end but it's just all the stuff you have to do to get the listings up and I'm a perfectionist so I don't finish until everything looks exactly like I want it. I've found that the better the auction looks, the more people will pay.

Here's a super fast recipe I threw together tonight and it was sooo good (don't ask me ask my people) that I thought I would share it with you guys. Not exactly gourmet, but a quicky dinner that tastes great!

Take one pack of the precooked chicken strips southwest flavor heated up, one pack of the precooked Mexican/Spanish rice, heated up, and one can of the new Campbells Green Chile? condensed soup, and if you like it spicy, one can of chopped green chiles. Mix it up real good and wrap it up like filling inside the soft taco(small) size tortillas, either kind. Line em up like enchiladas in a rectangular pyrex or 9 x13 dish. Pour some red sauce all over it and spread around- I used the Pace Ranchero Cooking Sauce- you could use enchilada sauce, salsa, taco sauce, whatever you like. Green salsa would probably be good too. Then if you want put cheese - I used pepper jack- and bake at 375 til bubbly and cheese is melted. Mmmm mmmm good. Of course you can adapt it to your personal taste- vegetarian- use 2 packs of rice and no meat, you could use cooked shrimp cut up instead of get the picture. It would have been even better with some shredded lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream on top.

I have not forgotten about all the questions. I'll be working on those this week. Buenas noches everybody and may yer Monday be more like a Friday, or at least a Wednesday!

Well, it's a long ugly tale that has a happy ending- thanks to Echo. A blog company that I will not name here (but if you want to know the name just email me doubletroublemommy at verizon dot net and I will fill you in on all the gory details)was having a special- buy one get one free for custom blogger templates. Impulsive(read stoopid) chick that I am, I went for it and prepaid my moolah. Long story blahblahblah I got lots of attitude and nothing to show for my pesos. Like I said, email me and I will fill ya in.

Lilypie 1st Birthday Ticker
Who's the Monkey Mama?

Location: Planet Twinstar, Monkeyville, United States

I'm a real live human person...the slightly wacky mom of 6 year old identical twin primate princesses and one 2year old monkeyboy. I'm divorced from a crazy baboon and remarried to a big snuggly gorilla. I thank God daily for my wonderful family and friends, without whom I would go berserk. My chirren are the cutest kids ever born (besides yours) and if you don't believe that you obviously need to see a shrink.

How is she feeling?
