Happy Chicken

We took the kids to see Happy Feet Two tonight and all I can say is I am happy the kids enjoyed it. Don’t get me wrong it was OK, I was just disappointed at the very evident lack of any story line. I was not too impressed with the whole 3-D aspect of it either. I am thinking I will just see good ol’ 2-D movies from this point forward. For that matter I will probably just wait for them to come out to DVD because even at matinee prices it was over $35.00 just for tickets.

The days are ticking away until surgery…26 and counting…I’m getting nervous. While we were in Rockland I stopped at Wally World and bought a pair of PJ’s as I do not have any. I typically just were sweats. With my surgery being laparoscopic I do not want anything on my belly…such as sweat pants…so Kev told me to buy a new one…will be my only one. Yes funds are tight…thus feeling a bit guilty spending the money on tickets…with STILL waiting on a decision with Kev’s short term disability claim from back in July! They have extended the decision to sometime late this month now.

Here is another recipe for you to try. I really loved this one and hope you do as well…
