Watching the big game today, but just for something to do with Kurt and his mom on a Sunday. I'm always happy to watch for the commercials. I have just finished making the chili -- the recipe my mom has made ever since I can remember. I always loved it when she pulled out the HUGE pot that fit over two burners. That meant a LOT of people were coming over and fun would be soon at hand. I am also making hot artichoke dip. The word "artichoke" is misleading as really the best part is the hot mayo and parmesan cheese. YUM! There will be regular M&Ms for Kurt as well as his favorite: Lay's BBQ potato chips. And veggies to munch on as well. Can't be completely without fresh food! Secretly, I was so excited about having the hot artichoke dip that I had to jump around. I haven't made it/had it in ages and oh boy will it be yummy. I am hungry too but Kurt's mom will be here in an hour so I don't want to fill up on something else before the dip is ready. I compromised with a few pistachios.
Had my yearly eye exam, the one with full dilation and close up inspection. My eyesight is still 20/20, thank the gods, and my eye doctor tells me every year that I'll need glasses soon. I keep being prepared for it, but then it's still all good. My eyes are also very healthy. Yay.
I bought treats for certain college aged people...they prolly don't read my blog, but I'll not say what it is just in case. They will be out in the mail in a few days.
I'm hankering for a road trip. My mom might be in No. Cal in a few weeks and if so I'll drive up and take photos along the way. It's tough when Kurt is working so hard, but we are trying to make time to go to the Grand Canyon. Item #8 that you didn't know about me: I've never been.
