All the News That's Fit to Print ...

and then some :)

Well, my mom is improving. She's still bedridden, but she's got the twinkle back in her eye. She gets several visits a week from occupational therapists, physical therapists, and visiting nurses. She's even got a nurse's aid (Nancy) who comes three times a week to give her a bed bath. I'm still doing all the cooking and cleaning around here - but at least my mom now has help for certain things (and people to socialize with), and now I can get a few minutes to myself (like I have right now) to read, or get online, or maybe grab a cat nap.

I'm still job hunting - got a whole slew of places to send resumes to (and should be doing that right now, but I felt more like doing this). I also have my first interview set up for next week. It's not exactly my dream job, but it is in the sense that at this moment i dream of any job that will pay me, LOL:)

I am in love with shopping at Gigante!! It's this great little chain of stores here in So Cal (and in Mexico) complete with it's own Panaderia and Carniceria. Discovered it through a flyer that came in the mail a couple weeks ago. We've been gorging ourselves on pan dulce ever since. They make the best conchas (3/$1) and bolillos (6/$1) I've ever had. And the chorizo from the carniceria is to die for yummy!!! And everything is so much cheaper and fresher there than anywhere else around here. The bolillos at Ralphs are 3/$1, and (this week anyway) at Albertsons avocado is going for 2/$1 and kiwis are 3/$1, but they're 4/$1 and 8/$1, respectively, at Gigante. Now, you know perfectly well that all that produce came from the same field!

I hooked up the DVD player yesterday (it's been sitting there next to the tv since we moved). My dad was going to do it, but never got around to it, so yesterday afternoon, when I couldn't stand it anymore, I plugged all the thingies into all the appropriate slots - bingo bango, a functioning DVD player. We watched two movies last night, before it was time for Cold Case (I love that show) and the ever glorious Battlestar (which they stupidly moved to Sundays - pissing me off royally!). I will blog about the movies in the near future, but right now my online respite has come to a close - back to the salt mines! ;)

I'm glad to read about your mom's improvement. I hope it continues.

We have 2 Mexican chains in our city now & I have yet to go there. I go to Stater Bros., which is still way cheaper than Ralphs or Albertsons. Do you know if the Mexican markets sell tamales around Christmas time? I totally love sweet tamales.

jane - I don't know about the tamales (I didn't find out about the store until after X-mas), and I love Stater Bros. too :)
