:( RIP Mr Carlin.
I made vegan wheat oatmeal flax brown sugar banana chocolate chip muffins
- I need to shorten the name LOL
-- Ok - well since it was hard finding an exact vegan recipe I wanted and i just tweaked a few I found, I didn't take into consideration how little the healthish things would rise and fill the cups more.They are still soft and fluffy ,considering :)
Worked really well too, 'cause I have the kid convinced they are cupcakes,muffin tops might not have fooled her
---The recipe, as best I can explain it... I took it from a few recipes I found, and then added what I had/ wanted that wasn't in the recipe, and did a bit of it by eye.
-- If you know me and my cooking ability( by the book, or panic) ,then you know this is a big thing learning to cook and make my own recipes.
- 1 cups flour
- 1 cup oatmeal- ground into flour in the food processor
- 1/2 cup ground flax seed
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 2 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/2 cup soy milk
- 1/3 cup melty margarine
- 1 tsp vanilla
- handfull or two of choco chips
Sooo you put the oven on 400-
mix up the dry stuff in one bowl-
I mixed all the wet in the food processor (helped mash the nana)'
put them together
then fold in the choco chips.
and TRY not to stir it together too much- always my mistake-
Needs nuts,but I didn't have any today.I also considered adding some of Ri's choco protein powder(though thats not vegan)- but he was out anyway.
I let Rory put more C/C on the top of them after I poured them in the tin.
In the oven for 20 -25 mins.
I made Rory some pink frosting but it didn't turn out very yummy..and they really don't need it.
She had fun helping too.
I am sooo tired today.Ri wasn't tired last night ,and we stayed up all night watching movies from netflix-they renewed our act we had on pause- we forgot to call them and keep it on hold this month .. oh well.
We already paid for this month so we are just gonna get a bunch of movies this month and cancel it again.Last night we watched "Long kiss goodnight" which is probably my fav action movie.
and "man of the year" I do love Robin Williams, but it coulda been better.
Its been crazy stormy here. Rory and I, DID manage to sneak a walk in yesterday.
She wanted to take her dolly for a walk. It was hot and buggy and her pushing that stroller in the road made me nervy we didn't stay out long.
Noobs was thrilled though.. the weather has made her sad and pouty she was sooo happy to get out and pee on everything.
Ohh.. and guess whats back at my house:
The Geekos! I know you are thinking this is the pic I took last yr...nope.
Every year we get a handful living in here with us.They eat bugs though.. I try not to let them eek me out-until they are near my shower ,or my bed.

My teeth look great though YAY!!!!!! Such a huge relief not being self conscious about my smile.
On top of the grog I get post dental work,(my lip is all raw and nose hurts too :( ) -I think I may also be getting the ICk-That Ri came home with the other night.
Heres a pic of Ri the other night when he came home..all tucked in and sicky . Some kinda nasal ick (we all seem to have now) and a bit of over exhaustion.
He has been working soo much and soo exhausted. The night after my bday he had came home frustrated with everything...and everyone..
He went to take a shower ,and I had forgot to tell him I had broke the knob that switches between shower/bath.
Damn thing had been sticky for years and required pliers ,or beating it, to change settings..
Well, I beat it too hard in my hurry the morning before and forgot all about it.
HE was pissed that I didn't tell him before he headed in there for a relaxing bath ,and got pissed it was broke ..
I barely talked to him that night. I knew he was just frustrated with everything- I didn't want it directed at me though. I didn't mean to not tell him, I had honestly forgot myself ,and barely seen him since It broke.
He felt bad about it . He even called me the next morning to apologize ,and say that he also realized it wasn't my fault it broke, it was rusty and about to break anyway..
it was so sweet.- seems stupid but it was really sweet of him to call.
I miss him , he is working so much .
Even overtired and sicky Ri was determined we would go out and go swimming his day off as a belated bday celebration- So we went to alexander spring.
.it was kinda stormy everywhere but just short patches.
It was NOT warm enough out for me to want to go swimming in the spring. the spring is cold,
I really hate that I can't tolerate the cold water-but I CANNOT. I freeze up and no amount of "acclimating" out there makes me warm enough- 10 mins in and I am STILL stiff and uncmofortable.
I love swimming,tooo I get soo jealous of the people that can stretch out and look comfy/relaxed in that cold water.
I was fine sitting out and watching Rory swim tho, and snacking on the fruit and sammies we brought.. until we got there and got COVERED in gnats, and flies.
Of course I had forgot the bugspray- left it at moms- and the gnats were killing me.You could barely see anything but gnats.
So ,Ri sees me miserable and decides we should leave- but then I felt horrible. I want them to stay and have fun, besides we just spent damn 10 bucks ,and drove through bfe to get there.
Seems like such a waste ,and its my fault.
I am the most gnat attracting person and they make me swell up,,,plus if I was just a bit more tolerant of the water I could just get in they wouldn't be bothering me.
Sucks either way.
So , we decided to go shopping. I had made a giant list of crap we needed. We needed to restock our freezer,groceries AGAIN, and a few wally world items.. and we needed to stop at lowes in search of a new know thingy for the tub.
We ended up just shopping at wally world.. I know, its terrible, but it was late and well we woulda had to go to wally world for some things either way-
OH My BOB !,food is freaking expensive, and we have been using soo much!
We FILLED a cart- we don't usually do that, we bought the mandatory cheap plastic walmart impulse buys like a pitcher,pink bowls, and a muffin tin..
Well we did sorta need a muffin tin, I am determined to make healthy "cupcake' muffins for my junk food junkie.
We got JJ(bro) a gift ,too.. still need to bring it too him his bday present will be late :( .
We ended up in palatka for four hours!
Spent too much money
We let Rory play the dino game she always messes with,while Ri checked out , and won a turtle for Noobs.She was soo proud!
After eating the yummy mex food Ri made for dinner, I dyed my hair -made a terrible mess... We got the ONLY TRUE red - that wallyworld had- that wasn't "burgundy" or "orange"
... I still think it is too maroon.
When we were on our way to the springs Ri's mom had called us asked us over to dinner
-- but of course we already almost to the spring and wouldn't be able to come over for dinner..She had bought mac & cheese for Rory.
So we went over the the next day - Wednesday
.Well,After a late start of sleeping in,And eating breakfast, and candy that I got in the mail from my "skanky" friends.Least we had some way healthy flax cereal before candy :)
Ri's mom got Rory a bike - She asked Ri to try to get the tires filled with air,But the tube was broken- he was real frustrated he had to stand out there in the rain and try to fill it- I dunno why it was so important he do it right then anyway.
It was raining and buggy out anyway we needed to go in.
Ris mom was making mac& cheese,garlic bread,and "chik'n" patties... so, Ri decided he should bring some healthy veggie to go with it all. While the food was cooking Ri went over and kidnapped Sari. (His mom had kept calling but she never came).
. so Ri just went to get her.
She is apparently working a lot ,and sleeping a lot. Rory hugged her and asked her why she hasn't "let her Hold the baby yet?" LOL ,
Sari has preggy nose.. and was sniffin' everything. she had to get a new fork cause hers smelled like sulfur.LOL
Rory ate lots of dinner...and BEGGED to go swimming.
We hadn't planned on it-It had been soo stormy and it was pretty late we didn't think we would.
But we borrowed some suits they had..
Sari had some shorts that actually fit Ri-
It wasn't storming anymore- but it was raining
Dunno why she is being all gangsta
----- one reason I'll never have short hair---
We couldn't get Sari into the pool tho
my hair is not pink, dammit!( I should stop using the d word ... Rory has being using it)
Rory swam for a long time.she even held her breath and went under for a second. She is getting sooo good at swimming.
Rory is still sad we had to leave her bike there,,she asked about it a few times
She says it is Hannah Montana not barbie.
We had planned to get drunk last night -with the overtired ,swam out Aurora , and a new supply of ginger ale and jones soda -
but ,about the time we were smoking our rare after drink black & mild
I realized what day is was... the night before my dentist appt.
Rush in to brush my teeth. Get ready for an early morn, and go to bed.My appointment was fairly quick though ,and Rory slept in the car (with ri) the whole time even.
I DID clean the kitchen.. (housework gets backed up on Ri's days off- cause I wanna spend time with him.. I do start the dishwasher I just don't do the normal counter cleaning sweeping vac stuff.)
Otherwise i sat around half asleep sneezing. Rory has been sneezy too.
Rory told me to take this pic today.
Well, I'm off to bed
Monday, June 23, 2008
I already had the car seat out just in case I needed to go some where on my Bday.
So, this family friends daughter was getting married... one of them , not sure which even LOL.So , I sleepily struggled to find a dress that wasn't too black or too white.
They basically didn't want to go and looked for any excuse not to.I wouldn't have minded watching the wedding, those are often entertaining... if they are three hours long or anything.
So , mom finally showed up with Libby and we headed out- early. So ,we made a few stops.
Mom wanted to buy me a nice rug for my bday.It is what I really wanted my stained carpet has really been bothering me.
We make it to Ravine Gardens, and it is raining.So we ask the guy were the wedding is, he says they moved it to the reception place, and ave us the cell phone number he was left with... We didn't go.
We went ahead shopping.We stopped in trendkill- I'd never actually been in there,, I just wanted to see what body jewelry they had on hand.. not shit.
Every five minutes Rory asked if we could go to Grammys house already.Then told the story of Dora and the mermaid.
We went to a few places to look at rugs- and got one cheapest from Babcock. I really love it -Mom ended up getting herself one ,too.
Ri was shocked how expensive it was-but dude it was the CHEAPER one, and 'why do ya think we don't already have one'.
We stopped in this hair supply store they have been shopping at- Lissy got her hair peroxide stuff and grey hair color.Rory wanted a pink hair brush and hair bows.. I asked mom why they were turning her into such a girly girl.
Lissy was trying to cash a money order- but it was circlek and there is not one out here.. and NO ONE would cash it.We went to pizza hut for lunch - got in at shift change and waited for ever for our food.She ate her crust into a crown and then proudly told our waitress about the crown in "Dora and the mermaid "movie.-- with big arm motions and loads of drama . It was hilarious.
While we were there I realized I didn't have my cell phone- Mom and Lissy heard them ask if they lost a cell phone at Babcock .. but I didn't hear them ask. :( So we had to go back across town for it.
We saw Becca at wally world for a split second... she says she is still working all the time. Libby gave her one of her business cards( Lissy got her business license and is now a spiritual adviser and reads tarot cards ,and palms)-- becca said- you were always a weird one. LOL.
-- oh i dunno if i told ya either, Mom got the job she was going for, working for the health dept and is off one weekends now.We went to the groery store while Lissy went to get some fake nails next door.. we ended up beating her and waiting for her in the parking lot- Rory told us to just GO to your house.. Mom told her we couldn't leave lissy, she said "fine, wait for your GIRLFreind". lissy came out with the damn littlest petshpop pink owl,chihuahua,butterfly pack that I have searched all over for since the day we bought one for miranda's bday and rory wanted one too.
So on to moms house. Mom bought be a key lime "pie" that turned out to be a cake--it was really good.
JJ got me cheesecake and mom got me make up and stuff :)
Rory played with the kittens again-- they are already much bigger than last time and a bit more resilient...still working on teaching Rory the proper way to cuddle.I tried to convince them to name the one with allergies Colonel Sniffles.. and the one with dog like dots "puppy". Libby told Rory she was going to "dye her hair" and Rory GASPED and covered her mouth "thats terrible! " then tried to explain how she meant color! Rory ate a whole ice cream cone and CRASHED it was so cute one minute she was up.. then she was out cold.While she was passed out I got libby to bleach out the front of my hair too.it was soo funny.. or we were inhaling too many fumes.
check it out!
I will dye it red.. I still hafta find the red I want!
So after libby tried to murder me with burny amonium a hot blow dryer and melty plastic-
and after the folks had gone to bed and i was done goofing off chatting with the siblings
we woke the kid up and got ready to go. She cried about leaving the kitties.. she said they cried, too.
Ri came home and made me dinner.Chinese food! I have really been wanting some,but can't really bring home any in the middle of the night .so, he bought ingredients and made dinner
today- I decided to clean the the living room and organize Rory's toys..
BUT, in order to organize the toys I would need to clean Rory's room..
BUT to clean that i needed to hang her clothes 1st... LOL.So I deep cleaned the kids room, organized everything.. and cleaned the living room. Rory actually helped and picked out a BUNCH of toys she wants to give to baby Lily.
heres some pics Rory took
A pic of my new rug... i think Rory got a better pic.
Friday, June 20, 2008
HEY!! "wysiwyg editor" is working today, on firefox even WOOHOO! !!!!
(still having trouble with bloggers photo uploader - getting pics from my card.. so I still hafta Upload them to PB.gggrrrr-- crapola PB is being SLOWWW too.. i might post this without pics until I get 'em up.)
So, I was sitting here half asleep playing online,
and Rory runs out of her bedroom with her toy cow- she sat next to it ,grabbed its utters and said "I'm milking my pet cow Abigail"--the way she was it was more like "avagail" TOOO cute. I wish she wasn't naked I would ran to record it. LOL.
...Though , now she is fussing because I am not letting her play "noggin"(she can play later when I am on the phone/cleaning... and maybe not noggin that site is soo much bigger, slow loading and harder to nav-and I don't want to play noggin).
Rory did not go to sleep again all morning, after that "nap" last night -sigh-
Ri slept on the couch for awhile- I guess hoping to go to bed when we did.He did finally go lay in bed long enough for the alarm to go off.He is painting again this morning.
Rory was no were NEAR tired when he left for work.
At about 11 I got dressed and decided we would walk the dog (before it stormed).
- it was WAY too hot out. We didn't stay out long( I hadn't really planned to either) just took some pics. Noobie was HOT anyway, poor thing.
I thought she would pass out when we came home the way she was huffing... I'd shave her if I thought it wouldn't embarrass her and be a total P.I.TA
Everyone was out mowing their yards- or watching the lawn/tree service do it.
... I am really getting paranoid about our yard. We really need to mow it.I'm half waiting to get some sort of trouble for it.Its over grown.
Between the bunnies nesting in the yard , the weather, and our schedule I don't know when ,or how ,it will get done.
Rory stayed up till 1pm or so. The we both napped till 5...yeah, I know thats pretty terrible.
My birthday is tomorrow. I dunno IF i will do anything.- I don't have plans. Ri has to work (prolly all day).
I don't expect anything , that's always a set up for disappointment.
I can't believe I will be 25.jeez.
I'm NOT READY!! thats OLD!
.. I think I'll go make some coffee.

the days when I don't really want to blog ,uploads pics,or play a game, it all loads easy peasy..
but, then - When I want to GRrrr I may as well be on effing dial up!
,.. I am seriously losing my patience with this.. while, I really enjoy blogging ,and posting about my goings on- I can't deal with yet another site to battle with. "Oh My God! LOAD YOU STUPID ASSHOLE! "
Grr. Then, I will take it all over to firefox because IE is an even bigger piece of crap.
.. all just to provide myself with an account of pics and what have you.
I hope you're happy lol.
Mom was really sore, and sorta limping around.she said she's worried because the pain is in her pelvis, and she just had a pap come back odd :( Hoping its not MORE on top of every thing else..
Ri says thats what happened to his mom, that that tends to go hand in hand :( .I really hope not.
So anyway- we spent the rest of the evening hanging out at moms. It was a really girly night.
Rory Just wanted to play with the kittens.. she was stuffing them in the back of an empty soda fridgepack box- saying " All aboard passengers!" and calling it a train. Which at one point caused a pretty big tantrum when we took them away and sent them to bed for the night. They are far too small to be manhandled by a tot,,
she TRIED to be gentle ,she did..but just wouldn't quit shaking them around
I was reminded, I really don't like kittens this age..
when they are JUST underfoot, clumsy and whiny.they need to get a bit bigger,they make me nervous.
Rory ate her weight in Cheetoos, and candy.
bounced off the walls for a bit.
I went through clothes with Amy and Lissy
we went outside and had makeovers
Check out the huge lashes
Don't you love her look ?
Thats Rory and her mr. potato cupid mom got her...
LOL... she found out JJ was playing a video game,
She got REALLY tired ,and REALLY grumpy . UGH! her tantrums have been terrible. I don't even know what to do with the fit throwing.if we were at home I would have sent her to bed.
.. In fact ,the next night she threw a fit like that ,as well, and eventually we(ri&I) just told her to "go to bed if she was going to be THAT fussy", I laid her in her bed, and not even five minutes later she was fast asleep. I hate to see her go to bed that mad, but when she gets tired its like a completely different kid, especially if she has been over-stimulated , or is OVER-tired. It is REALLY frustrating. One minute she is hilarious easy going, and fun... the next, you've told her "NO" one too many times and its a full on inconsolable MELTDOWN trauma!...--- the WHOLE time she is REALLY CLINGY twisting my hair, climbing on me and wanting me to hold her- good or bad mood.
Ri has been working NONSTOP. Mornings he paints, he even picked up Wednesday for someone ,AND worked a half day Tuesday morn.. so he has barely been home AT ALL .
We didn't really do anything for him fathers day :(
His dad stopped by the other morning.. we were in bed, and wouldn't have even known if we didn't find skirts for Rory ,and a note on the doorknob.
The weather has been super crappy . and we are back to waking up way late, going to bed at dawn.
I tried to get Rory to go for a ride on her bike with with me Monday but she tantrumed about that, too ,before deciding she would.
.. I have had to fight the computer away from Rory to play it though, cause Ri downloaded a Dora game for her.It too her about 8 seconds to figure out how to get to it on the puter without any help, and less to master it.
Tuesday, Ri had worked just that morn, he wanted to go swimming some where after work.. we debated heading to the spring or the beach. Once we got on the road and could SEE were the storm was we headed for Flagler beach. I hadn't been to flagler beach in SO long. It was NICE. RI wants to go to that beach more often. it was really nice to not have to worry about cars.
When we got there a life guard rushed to tell us we couldn't go in the water because of a lightening risk.. but it should pass.
We built a sand castle and waited it out.
The water was REALLY nice.Pretty strong current but ankle high waves .It was nice. ROry loved swimming out there with us.
When went home long enough to pick up the dog-
--- We stopped at cowcatcher( drive thou liquor) to get some rum to go with the Jones soda ( cane sugar! :) ) .. and the lady gave Rory the lollypop,.. Rory was only half awake, and wasn't even sure were it came from but it still got a smile out of her.
The DVD player broke- blew a fuse out.. Ri was pissed. even more pissed when he took it apart ,and found it full of 'sony' parts .. Says he wouldn't have bought it if he knew that, considering the crappiness of Playstations
Ri brought a new one last night.Yesterday without it wasn't as bad as I feared. Rory played playstation games .. but, I'm glad he bought a new one soo quick .Sucks though,
he was like " all that overtime and everything breaks, now I have to pay for this"
sux how that seems like that is the way it always is.
Rory in her new skirt,from "nanapop" she loves it soo much she wanted to go out in it, but the weather was too bad, so she posed for a pic instead.
Didn't do much today. It STORMED cats and dogs, and maybe electric eels.
We tested out the new DVD player..I battled to get this freaking blog up. Rory DEMANDED I make chocolate cookies.. but we made some AWESOME vegan blueberry pancakes instead,and she settled for that- OMG, they turned out SO PERFECT.Rory was tired and clingy all day- she ended up taking a nap. .. oh well.
I get to be up all night.
