Two Hours to Zero Hour....

So the countdown continues....

I just spent another $50 on supplies--paper products are amazingly expensive!! Of course, if I had half a brain I would have gone to the dollar store and bought it there, but then I would have had to drive to the other side of town and at $4.50 a gallon for gas and the fact that I drive a Tahoe made me think I was better off paying more for the paper plates and forgetting about a better deal somewhere else!

The beans are bubbling along nicely. I flipped the tri-tip again and the marinade seems to be permeating the meat quite well. The boys have swept and picked up the back yard and I have sprayed it down once already--just waiting to go out and spray it again with my bleach/Listerine concoction. I set the table in the house with the table cloth and plates and napkins I bought at Cash & Carry--great little big box store down the street from work.

Eddie just finished making the salsa--omg! Wish you were here to taste it! WOW! All fresh veggies in it--jalapenos, onion, tomatoes, garlic, cilantro--it is amazingly good! He grilled all of the veggies on the BBQ and then blended it all together. I may not eat anything else tonight.... *grin*

OK. Hubby is getting ice so I can ice down the drinks. I need to clean the floors and kitchen now that Eddie is done with the salsa. (He's the bf, btw). I think I am going to make a sign so that people will come through the gate and not the house--easier that way and I can shut some of the house off--hey, we can only clean just so much, ok?!!

OK--enough stalling. Time to get busy again.... Whew! I will be glad when this is all over. Oh wait--I have to do it all again tomorrow for Em's birthday party!! Oi.....

hey Sheri, you are THE kool-aid mom of the year! I wanna come to the party! :) Question: what is the bleach/listerine for? Sounds strangely exotic and frightening... ;) Smooches babe. Have FUN tonight!!!

The bleach/listerine combo is to clean up/eliminate the doggy odors from urine and whatnot on the cement. Something about the listerine enzymes wipe out the stuff in the urine that causes odors. I don't remember where I read this, but it works on carpets also. Not the bleach--just the listerine! LOL! And if nothing else it leaves your carpets 99.9% germ free! Haha!!
