Bunco recap

Bunco at my house tonight went well. As further proof that I've really lightened up with my half-assed Martha Stewart complex, pretty much all of the food was thanks to Target and a pair of scissors. Open some gourmet chip bags, pour some Hershey's kisses into a bowl, pop the lid on some pre-made hummus...there you go. I did make one thing - a hot dip that tastes exactly like a jalapeno popper, and that everyone normally seems to like. Probably would have been better if I hadn't absent mindedly put in three times the amount of jalapeno the recipe called for. It was a good thing I bought a lot of beer.

And now I'm off to a five day certification class that I'm more than a little apprehensive about. Stand by to hear all about it once I see what it's actually like.

Still waiting for a final opinion from the oncologist, but my guy certainly worked the estrogen crowd tonight. You could barely find a vacant spot on him to pat, and I don't even want to know how many little hand-fed tidbits found his way down his gullet. I got through the evening without crying once, which, considering my last 24 hours, has to be worth something. I think I've shed more tears in the last day than I have in the last year.

Surely I must have gotten some jalapeno juice in my eyes.

Loved the photo. Hot & spicy.
Hope the news, when it comes, is more hopeful.
Hope the 5 day course goes well. You are one busy lady!

Glad to hear you got those tears out... maybe they covered a lot more than doggie cancer and will help in the long run.

I don't do bunco, but I do have a monthly knitting group, we meet this Saturday and I was thinking that your hot dip may be a good contribution, that is unless it is a secret family recipe!

Good luck in the class.

I think that as the days go by you are going to feel that huge knot in your stomach start to dissolve.

I'm hoping anyway....
