Traditions

November 27th, 2006 at 05:02 pm

I have always told my son that unless you want to do something forever never do it more than 3 times in a row, if you do it becomes TRADITION.

On the Sunday after Thankgiving we always decorate the Church and afterwards Barb serves everyone Ham & Beans. The other people bring stuff but Barb always makes the Ham & Beans it is TRADITION. Well this year Barb was going to Illinois for her daughter's wedding. They thought about moving it to a different date, they asked Barb to make them ahead anything to avoid breaking TRADITION. But Barb was going up early and staying to take care of her Grandson during the honeymoon there was no way she was going to make Ham and Beans this year. I knew Barb felt guilty SO..me being the rabble raiser I am said "There are other people who can make Ham & Beans" Guess who got to make them?

The package said serves 50 and there are usually around 15-20 people there so I thought that would be enough. Barb gave me her TRADITIONAL recipe and I cooked up a humongous pot of Ham & Beans and took them to the Church. Everyone was perfectly happy, everyone had seconds, I felt really good about it. Hopefully a new tradition was started, Barb is not the only person in the church who can make Ham & Beans.

And neither am I.

DS's Choir Trip

November 22nd, 2006 at 08:22 pm

Okay I knew this was coming but DS kinda blindsided me with it yesterday. His choir is going to Chicago and the teacher wants $100 deposit by December 5th. Why December? Why are property taxes due in December? Don't all these people realize that December is NOT a good month to throw extras into the mix. I suppose I am really just whining because I have the property tax money sitting there in savings and the Christmas money sitting there waiting to be spent so all I really have to come up with is the $100 deposit ($50 if I can get ex to split it) but WHY DECEMBER! Arrrgh.

So I am trying this

I enjoy everyone elses so I thought I'd give it a try. Don't quite know what to say yet but I am sure something will come eventually.

The Holiday season is just started and is already wearing me down. I need a good cover story for the busybodies at the office who keep asking me my plans. Somehow it is sad (to them) that I just plan on staying home, making Ham & Beans for the Hanging of the Greens at Church Sunday and probably bake a turkey cause they are real cheap right now and I love turkey sandwiches and homemade turkey noodles. I don't mind so much being alone for the holiday but the funny looks are starting to bug me.
