Our oven works?? Now what do I do?

It’s been a long and annoying 2 weeks since our stove caught fire and today I am here to report that it appears we can actually use the oven on our new for us/ used stove. Oh, joy.

ooh-jello.JPGGuess that means I can stop eating large dishes of jello like it’s going out of style huh? Random thought, I know but seriously I have been eating jello and craving it like crazy. We consumed one box already and I made up 3 more (yes 3) boxes last night for our chowing pleasure.

I really don’t need to be snacking on jello considering I have lost 12 pounds over the last 3 months and I am wasting away… I know you are thinking what a joke! This girl is honestly complaining about loosing weight?

Trust me weight is an issue no matter what size you wear. For my family the fast metabolism and over active thyroid glads are to blame and we have to work hard to “eat enough”. If we don’t we not only look bad but we have dizzy spells, stomach issues and so on. when you work food off as fast as you can eat it… It’s a pain!

So I need to be eating beef jerky or something that takes a while to break down/ burn off, NOT jello..

Oh, and I am doing my business inventory like a mad woman right now. I want to file my taxes but I need to know what inventory was at year end, which also means I need to input all my expense receipts that I put off all year.


I am also packing as much as I can to prepare for the upcoming move at the end of the month. I am literally surrounded by boxes but I guess we have been since we moved in here… We have been living out of boxes for the last 6 months… Living out of boxes makes packing to move a bit easier I guess.

Oh, and I have been getting my students ready for their upcoming competition at the end of the month too. You can see a video of them over at gather (a writing/ publishing site) ( So what are you up to this fine day?

  1. Oh, I’m so glad that your oven is working and you don’t have to survive on only jello now. LOL. Jello IS kind of addicting though. ๐Ÿ™‚ Now go eat some good stuff (the kind that takes longer to digest and metabolize) so you can prep yourself for the move. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. OMG! We do the same thing sometimes with Jello Pudding. The Sugar Free and Fat Free kind of course, but still, I know how you feel about that! On the move; I know how stressful it can be moving. We’re currently between moves right now ourselves. The best thing you can do is organize EVERYTHING! And, make sure you clean your house up real good or the evil landlords will charge you for everything that they have to do.
