Ciao Bella.
Why thank you I don't think I'm "that" either. Just ended up here because of a stupid choice I made. Won't be here long, my kids can't grow up here

What kind of games do you sell?

I just ordered a new toaster oven through Amazon.com. Now I'll make lasagna for DH's birthday dinner tomorrow. Made the sauce yesterday and will put it together today. Tastes much better after it has sat overnight.

Trying to figure out how to make it through the day without running water. Our subdivision had a new well dug, and is now super-chlorinating it, so the water is turned off. We won't have water till tomorrow. I filled the bathtub, but the drain leaks, so there's an inch left. I also filled a large stock pot with water for cooking and washing. I'd planned on making vegetable soup with beef shanks, that may have to wait till tomorrow.

Well that sounds like a PITA. I think you have the perfect excuse for eating out. You wouldn't want to have to wash dishes.

+1 on the eating out idea. So long as I could budget it in it's what I'd likely do.

No shower. Maybe takeout pizza.

I had totally forgotten they were shutting off the water today, barely got the tub and pot filled in time.

Steve is a software engineer and so programming games comes easy to him and I make graphics, do all the testing, sounds, music etc

That sounds like fun Does he do the games on the side? I mean, does he have a regular job as a software engineer and then program and sell the games as a freelance sort of thing?
