Extremely Frustrated

No Thugs lost. We were winning until this happened

Chris Cooley Breaks Tibia

He's doubtful for the rest of the season. Although we were winning, it's possible we would've lost anyway. We each had one guy playing last night against each other. Unfortunately for us Washington's QB is absolutely HORRIBLE. Cooley was wide open at least twice in the first 5 minutes & the QB made lousy throws. This isn't our first loss. We're actually 4-3 but this has by far been the most frustrating. We were so close. Hopefully, things will go better next week.

My birthday is Thursday. We will start celebrating tonight. It's not a memorable birthday. It's a shame I can't go back to 30 but I guess I should be happy it's not 40 yet. I know age is just a number & you're only as old as you feel but you know what? I feel about 65!! Anyway, we usually go out to eat for my birthday & I've been trying to decide where I want to go. This is always a tough decision for me. I love to eat out but I always have a really hard time deciding where. We normally always go out on Friday nights but since our subd. is having Trick or Treating Friday night (because of our close proximity to LSU & there being a game Sat. night), we're having our families over & Dean is cooking. So that means going out for my birthday wouldn't be a big deal because we wouldn't go out Friday. That combined with the fact that there are a couple of places I want to go I decided that we could go out every night this week. It didn't happen last night because although Dean lived alone for approx. 10 years & for the last 6 he's lived with me, he finds it virtually impossible to cook for less than 25. Don't get me wrong, he's a fabulous cook & we all know I'm not so I'm thrilled to death that he wants to cook but really I don't want to eat the same thing 3 days in a row. So, there's still a lot of food left from when he grilled the other night. I talked to him on the phone earlier today & when I mentioned again about going out tonight his response was "Your birthday isn't until Thursday". Does he listen to me at all??? So when I explained that I explained this last night he said he thought I was kidding. Then he told me that he thought of a surprise place to take me Thursday night. Yay, I like surprises! Tonight for dinner we had Izzo's, home of the illegal burrito. Now I know this doesn't sound like a big hoorah & it's not, but it's somewhere I hadn't ever been & according to my neighbor friend I needed to try it. I had nachos with all kinds of good stuff on them. They were delicious! Tomorrow I'm thinking about Mike Anderson's. It's my favorite.

Speaking of Izzo's, I love guacamole & if I go eat Mexican I want guacamole on whatever I get. What I don't understand is that there is always an additional charge for guacamole. I think this is a rip off. I'll pay it because I want it but it's a Mexican Restaurant & isn't guacamole like a staple for Mexicans??? I'm just saying.



  1. Hi Traci,
    Thanks for your comment on MY blog. The reason there are no pictures of my finished kitchen on my blog is because the kitchen is NOT FINISHED! I have not picked out my floors, I do not have a dining room set and I still have to finish smoothing drywall mud on my ceiling to smooth it out. After that I will do the final coat of paint on everything. I still have valances to sew for the kitchen window, back door and french doors. At this rate, it might be MY birthday before you see "finished" pictures! Happy Birthday, btw. My brother's birthday is 10/29 as well! And finally, your mother probably told you that I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog. It makes me laugh right out loud! Hugs.

  2. IZZO'S is off the chain!!! I love that place and when you told me the other day that you were there, I didn't realize you'd never been. And even though I don't care for guacamole, I agree it's a staple and should be available at no extra charge. I have this same battle over the sour cream!!

  3. Thanks for the birthday wishes Mrs. Carolyn! I can't wait to see the finished pictures.

    Allison - We'll definitely be going again. It was really good! I love sour cream too!
