That's kinda how I got started. I was a kid and mom was ironing. I asked if I could try it. Big mistake, mom never ironed for me again.

Excellent!!! See, he's been paying attention!

My poor DIL. She has learned that when my son is working on his MCE, leave him alone. Don't even attempt to feed him. She usually takes the baby and goes out for the day. Don't feel bad, he too waits until the last minute.

Earlier, I assembled a new piece of furniture. Then I deconstructed a turkey into boneless breasts and thighs for future meals and chopped the rest up for stock for Thanksgiving. Then I had to clean up and sanitize half the kitchen.

My shoulder is letting me know it is not happy with this unscheduled burst of activity. I guess Ill be a little sore for a day or two.

I just packaged up my caramelized onions in 1-cup measures and put them in the freezer. Next is to make the tiramisu cheesecake for DH's birthday dinner tonight (we're celebrating tonight, although his b'day isn't till Wednesday). I also need to put the lasagna together (didn't get to it yesterday) and finish the focaccia. Better get going.

I made a chocolate cream pie for Spike yesterday. I had forgotten that the recipe made the chocolate a little too bitter for my taste. But Spike loves it.

Today I have a smoked shoulder on the stove. I have to stop picking at it. Spike picked it out for me. I usually get a Smithfield, but this was a maverick brand and it is really good. A lot of flavor. I need to peel a couple of potatoes and carrots.

I have two appointments this week. The make up one with the eye surgeon and one with my vascular doctor. I also missed my appointment with my cardiologist. I will have to make that one up also. But I want to wait until after all my surgery stuff is done with. And with the holidays coming up, medical stuff is the last thiing I want to deal with.

I was in the mist of a very severe bout with the psoriasis. So bad, they were considering putting me in the hospital so I could get some around the clock treatment. Two days ago, I woke up and was in the middle of going into remission. They do know that stress plays a big part with this disease. So maybe it was all the stress from my eyes and my daughter that was creating the flareup. Once the eye surgery was done on one eye, it reduced a lot of the stress.
