Cook a packet of breakfast sausage, drain off fat and set aside.

In microwave, heat 1/3 cup frozen spinach and 1 tablespoon cream cheese until hot (about one minute to a minute and a half). Once hot. Mix together and set aside.

Toast and butter an English muffin.

Place ham on English Muffin.

I Visit A Toxic Wasteland, So I Can Have Something To Blog About

I haven't had anything interesting enough to blog about, so I visited a wasteland to make my life a little more intriguing. Okay, that isn't true, but I did visit a toxic wasteland. Why, you may ask. Well...

It all started with this car. You see, I have been buying and selling cars through my brother who is a partner at a car dealership. It has been a great way to make extra cash. Anyway, I bought this car, which needed new door handles. I thought, "Why should I spend a load of money on these parts when I can just go to a junk yard and get the same thing for cheap?"

So I end up here. Not quite what I expected. They have you bring your own tools and strip whatever parts you want for practically nothing...but there is another price to pay. More about that later. First, let me show you some of the interesting things I saw at the junk yard.

Granola bars. There was a half-eaten one, but I wasn't in a spot where I could get a picture of it. (Anyone hungry?)

Luggage.

Clothes. Including that nice pair of boxer shorts you see there. If you look at the top center of the picture, you will see a half drunk bottle of Gatorade.

Text books.

Medications. Anyone have a stuffy nose? I can rub this generic Vicks on you. I'm sure it's fine.

Okay. Now let me talk about the price I had to pay to get parts cheap. First off, I needed that door handle up there (where you see the red arrow). Yep, that one from the top car that is teetering dangerously atop of the car below it. I had to climb the mountain of cars to get what I needed. (My wife is going to so kill me when she reads this.)

The second door handle was on the black car buried under this pile (see the red arrow). I had to climb over and under broken cars to get to what I needed.

Once I got there, I had to squeeze into this small space, and work in VERY cramped quarters.

By the time I was done my hands were a little bloody. I thought, "This is soooo not worth it. I would rather pay 700% more."

I then heard about junk yards like this one that have the cars lined up in neat rows and not piled on top of each other like the last place, but it still was not worth it. I guess this was a lesson learned and an adventure. I'm never doing it again, though.

How To Be Negative And Positive At the Same Time

I’ve had a LOT of people come to me lately and say, “I love how ‘positive’ your Facebook post are.” Really? Are they reading the same posts I’m putting up, because I distinctly remember several posts about me wanting to kill my kids or a driver on the road.

I even had a friend’s wife, at a party, insist on meeting this “positive” family she sees on his FB page (Yes, that’s you Jason . Please tell your wife ‘Hi’ and that it was great to meet her. We should have dinner sometime.)

Anyway, the other day, my friend Kirsten put this all into perspective. She said, “You guys are negative in a positive way.” Thanks for that clarification, Kirsten…I am thinking of changing the tagline on our blog from “A Crazy Family In A Somewhat Quiet Neighborhood” to “A Negative Family, In A Positive Way.” What do you think? Hahaha!

Dress My Wife Part IX

I haven’t done a Dress My Wife Post in almost six months. Wow! Is that possible? For those of you that are not familiar with a Dress My Wife post, these are clothes I would pick out for Fauneil. I’d love to go spend $20,000, if I could.

Here are a few bags I would love to get my wife. She's not a purse/bag person though. She likes to travel light. Don't blame her. I'm the same way.

Love the pattern of this purse.

This one too.

Love the color of this one.

What's not to like about this?

Like, not love.

Can't stand the shoes, but I'll take the rest.

Love, love, love, LOVE! Super sexy!

Love the coat. Like the rest.

Great hair.

Nothing like a great pair of shoes.

My wife loves the style and look of Emma Watson. I'd have to say I agree with her 100%.

For the most part, I like the look and style of Kate Middleton as well (or whatever her new name is...Kate the Duchess of whatever...is it Cambridge?)

Well, this is it until I get to my next Dress My Wife post. See you then.

The Marvelous, Magical Birthday Of Seuss

.

One wintery day on the second of March. We got a big note, and that was the start. The start of events you will see. And its all because of our friend Holley Ellison McGhie. She has a pet monkey, it crawls on her head. She even lets it sleep with her in her bed. She had urgent news. It just could not be stopped. She had to tell us before the day went plop, plop, plop, plop.

"It's the birthday of Seuss," that's what she said. "It's the birthday of Seuss," she wrote from her bed. She wrote with her monkey on top of her head. You must celebrate; simply you must. You are my friends that play, play, play, play without any fuss. You must honor this birthday, this birthday of Seuss. You must do this; you have nothing to lose.

Without a second to waste we dashed off to Bliff's Store. Without a second to waste we ran out the door. Bliff's Store is the place to get what we need. Green eggs and ham, we can get there, indeed.

Green eggs and ham is a great way to say, happy birthday to Seuss on this marvelous day. Happy birthday to Seuss this is only the start. We have lots more to do. We each have our part.

Off we went, off we went at a vary fast pace. Off we went, off we went as if in a race. We went to read Seuss books, no time could be wasted. The clock was tik toking, we had to make hasted. There were things to be done on this birthday of Seuss. We must, must, must, must celebrate. It was just no use.

We spread on the floor on this second of March. We read, read, read, read until it was darked. But we could not stop there. We simply kept Seussing. We could care less whether we looked goof, goofy.

So on we read by the lamp of the car. On we read as we drove beneath white stars. Homeward bound we went, reading books in the night. Reading books by Seuss with the car's lamp light.

We read way past bedtime on this birthday of Seuss. We read way past bedtime, but what could we do? This comes once a year; it has been so much fun. I can't wait until we do another one.
