I reconnected with my best friend growing up recently. Yesterday I called her & we spoke for the first time in about 9 years. I had a smile on my face for the rest of the day! I didn't realize how much I really missed her until I actually spoke to her. We were glued to each other from the day we met in 3rd grade until shortly after high school.

Paul's Aunt Mary is one of the best cooks that I know. She was born and raised in Greece and is a pro at all the Greek dishes.

Last night we had her daughter over for dinner and I made Greek meatballs, Greek green beans with tomatoes and roasted potatoes. Athena, wants to learn how I make the green beans because they are so much BETTER than her moms!!! Yippeeee!!!!

Athena brought her college roommate with her and even though she only took a few bites of every thing she ate everything she took. Athena told me that this was the first time she's ever seen her friend ( she's known her for over a year) clean her plate!

I guess I'm learning how to cook!

I just got through to the Compliance Dept of the Comptroller of MD....been trying for 2 weeks! And I got a kind, sweet, understanding woman who had tons of patience with my ignorant questions.

Yippee and a HUGE smile here.

Getting through to the government shouldn't be so difficult.

vagriller, when I got home from work I found that HH had done the laundry (he took today off).

does that mean we have to be extra nice to them?
