• Everyday Stuff
  • Moving day

    Yesterday was moving day. What a long day! I don’t know if it was anticipation or the fact I forgot to take my prescription however I did not sleep at all on Friday night.  I finally gave in around 6:30 yesterday morning, got up and got showered and headed to Halifax.

    I picked up Erin and we met my parents at the apartment, we did not finish packing and moving everything till 11 last night. I am beat. I didn’t sleep well last night either. I should have but I didn’t. Hopefully everything will get back to normal. I have my own bed back now.

    Today I went in to Walmart and spent about $120 on sheets, pillows, a few t-shirts and some food.  I am going to give my Aunt $150 every two weeks, since I did not pay rent before this will give me time to get used to paying about $300 a month so that we I move into an apartment here shortly then I will not have to worry. I will just be changing who I am paying.

  • Recipies
  • Holiday Cooking

    Being home for 4 days before Christmas means lots (hopefully) of cooking and baking. Today Mom made my favorite Chocolate Rolled Oat Nuggets (Macaroons). They have always been a favorite of mine since I was a child. Mom makes them every year. I am hoping we get a lot of cooking and backing in in the next few days, Mom mentioned making perogies. Another of my favorites.

    Chocolate Rolled Oat Nuggets

    • 1 cup white sugar
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 3 cups rolled oats
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 1/2 cup shortening or butter
    • 4 tbs cocoa
    • 1/2 cup coconut
    • few grains salt

    Directions

    Bring first 4 ingredients to a boil and then add other ingredients. When mixed drop by teaspoonful on greased cookie sheet or waxed paper. Let stand until cool.

    I love this time of year but it makes me miss home so much. Cory has been sick since last night so I am hoping he is feeling better tomorrow or we may be cutting our visit short. I really love being home though. Even my brother and I are getting along pretty well. He can be really annoying at times but I have to keep reminding myself that even though he is technically 23, mentally he is not. It’s hard to remember sometimes.
