    That's what we call it around here... It's honestly the moistest chicken I've ever made! I got a stand at a kitchen store for about $8, load the can in the stand, load the chicken on the stand, put onions in the top, spray with pam, dust with Montreal chicken seasoning, put the chicken on the lowest shelf in the oven, and let it go... Yummy!

    Wasn't here Friday because it's my day off, so I didn't do anything, and by the time I got up at... uhm... oh.... 12... it was too late to say anything.

    Monday's course of action:

    Do some homework so I don't have to do it after work
    Get ready for school
    Class #1
    Meeting with Dean to buy my airfare & stuff for seminar in D.C. next month (I made the mistake of telling DBF that they're having us all stay at the Grand Hyatt, and I got all excited - then I remembered they didn't invite him to the seminar. Whoops....)
    Class #2
    Run for city bus
    Homework if I have any energy left

    No update on the Judicial Review Board yet - some people screwed up the vote last week, because they're stupid (wanted to ask a bunch of questions, even though they had a week to do so before the vote), etc, etc. So no idea what's going on at this point.

    Monday Monday...

    Couldn't sleep, thinking about the bills that are due. I hate that! Not that they are HUGE or anything, but I've got to move some $ around. It's tough getting paid every 2 weeks. Anyhow...

    Coffee (must go do this soon!)
    PrincessM, up, fed, watered, dressed, bus (make sure she has her glasses!)
    Make my lunch
    Go to PO
    PrincessM to softball clinic (hitting and fielding)
    Review homework she and DH have done
    Dinner? They will have eaten.

    The adjuster is coming from the insurance company tomorrow to look at my kitchen ceiling. Unsure yet if anything is going to be covered, but we have a $500 deductible anyway.

    Hope everyone has a super fabulous day!

    I remember taking a job closer to home for less money, but not realizing at the time they pay MONTHLY! :eek: That took me three months of ramen noodles to get used to before I could buy a coffee out again and not worry. :sad2:

    I can feel your pain Jennifer. :hug:

    Get kiddos to school.
    Get to grocery store and then local stores to check out bags.
    Finish the last load of laundry [for today]
    Get Swap to post office.
    Figure out dinner. Maybe one of those meals-in-a-box things.
    Go to library and get some books on bread making.
    Homework, dinner, soccer practice.

    Morning all!

    Debbie, we love that chicken too! Its good with Sprite too, if you don't have any beer on hand.

    SIOH - Happy Birthday!

    Not much on my list today that's productive.....

    Get boys up and ready for school
    Pack lunches for 3 of us
    DH to drive school bus this am & pm
    Go to work
    Pick up boys at 3:15
    General pick up around house
    Homework for DS1, practice printing whatever letter DS2 learned in Kinderarten today (he's struggling, and other than repetition, I don't know how to help him)
    DS1 & DH around neighborhood to sell some scout popcorn
    DH & DS1 to scout meeting

    My DH started as a sub bus driver for the schools here this year. One of the drivers went in the hospital yesterday; so he's driving her route all week except Tuesday, when he works. Thank goodness it's his week to only work one day. He went and got the bus yesterday and brought it home, and our dogs HATE it. They barked at it driving in, they barked at it every time they saw it out the window, and they barked at it this morning when he was getting it ready to go. I really hope they get used to it....very soon

    Have a good day, everyone!

    Get DD up and ready for school
    Write in DD's communication book
    Call in sick to work. My right eye is swollen shut from the poison oak/sumac. I am a thing of beauty. :scared1::scared1:
