The weekend.

Jeremy had to go to Walgreens to pick up Edda’s prescription for the emergency seizure medication that was prescribed 10 days ago and found some Hot Pockets for sale inside the drug store. He bought three differently-flavored boxes and put them in the freezer and we wondered how long it would be before Vince discovered they were there. It took about 2 days. All weekend, Vince and I did a taste off on Hot Pockets. We promised we wouldn’t eat any without the other and that we would split a box. I have to say, I used to love Hot Pockets. I no longer love Hot Pockets. They are so flabby! Were they flabby before? I thought the food scientists figured out how to crisp in the microwave a long time ago. I think I could go the rest of my life without eating any more Hot Pockets. I wonder, though, about Pop Tarts.

I made mini cherry pies with pre-made pie crusts and canned cherry pie filling. Again, I made them individual sized and froze them, so we wouldn’t eat them all at once.

I also tried to make a Dutch Baby which failed terribly the first time (I used whole wheat flour instead of regular white flour). Looks like a giant greasy pimple, huh? We ate it anyways. Delicious.

I did much better the second time around. Look at that! Gorgeous.

I also promised Vince mid-week that I would help him bleach his hair. I have never had my hair colored, so I don’t know exactly what goes on with the coloring and the foil and Vince had set up the whole thing without much warning for me, so I just had to wing it. I usually like to do a bit more research, like 15-20 minutes of youtube research, but he was just like – let’s go! it’ll be OK. with various warnings of burning scalp, or breaking hair or whatever. I told Vince that I knew I wasn’t his first choice for this hair procedure (he confirmed that I wasn’t his first choice), but that I was honored that I wasn’t the last choice, which logically would have been Jeremy. But Vince laughed and said that he would rank me higher than all of his male friends.

One thought on “The weekend.”

  1. Okay where do I start…..First the Dutch baby does indeed look like a pimple which I would never have known was not the correct way for it to look. I don’t even know what a dutch baby is unless I am holding one and trying to get them to go to sleep. Next. The mask for Jeremy looks great! Now make one for Vince and Edda too. Hospice has a pattern that is good if you need a new one. (Smart not to use elastic as the elastic is uncomfortable). Now, Vince about your hair. I DO know about hair coloring and I like what you’ve picked for the color but when you bleach your hair you strip it of all moisture so a hair mask is in order so that breakage does not occur. I recommend using Almond oil, Avocado oil, Coconut oil, Olive oil. You must do this or in a few weeks your hair is going to be like straw on an August day in the hot Texas sun. Oil up every little bit of your hair, wrap it in plastic wrap and leave it on for 30-45 minutes. Do this every week or your going to really damage that hair. Also, for future preparations you are going to want spend some serious change or barter and start letting a professional who has access to really good products start coloring your hair, if this is going to become a regular thing for you. What you can get over the counter at the drugstore is usually crap. So get that oil and start moisturizing your head right away.It’s a cheap way to protect your hair. (If swimming pools ever open again stay out of chlorine else it may turn a light greenish color). A good hair colorists is worth every penny. Trust me on this fact. Lastly and most importantly, Doris pay attention to those guidelines for removing your protective gear. You are needed. You are loved by so many.
