Yesterday afternoon I went out to run errands. I try to combine trips into town when at all possible. It is only about three miles into town but it gets old after a while. So first we went to the post office to mail some envelopes and a small present for Nina. The line is out the door - literally. No problem - I can use the computer kiosk thing to mail the package. I go hunting for one of the flat rate priority mail boxes to put the present in. None to be found - without standing in the mile long line, that is. So I get one of the regular priority boxes - but that wants almost 7 dollars postage - more than the present costs! So we leave without mailing the box. Sorry Nines - we will try again today!
On to the library - which has called to tell me that "Pride and Prejudice" is ready for me to pick up. I get there and find out that the movie comes on 2 DVDs and they only have the second half for me. When you reserve it, it does not automatically reserve both halves - nor can you pick which half it does reserve. Talk about stupid! So now I have the second half of the movie sitting at my house, waiting for the first half to be returned. It is due back today, so I will keep my fingers crossed. I did check out the first DVD of "Horatio Hornblower", another A&E miniseries. We first discovered it late one night or early one morning when I was up nursing Maddie nearly 7 years ago. It is a really well done story about a sailor in the English Navy around 1800. We watched about an hour of it last night and discovered it was one we had not seen before.
I did manage to get a pot roast made for dinner last night. This is one of the few meals that everyone in my family loves. I am raising the world's pickiest eaters, Maddie much more so than Ian. Ian will eat just about anything if you call it steak - so most meat in our house is "steak"! Neither one likes veggies, but me and DH are very particular about which veggies we like. Maddie does LOVE tomatoes - which is strange because neither me nor DH like them. For me it is a consistency issue. The slimy stuff in the middle grosses me out!
Enough rambling about the oddities of my family's eating habits! Hope everyone has a great day!
