Satisfaction Guaranteed

First off Happy Monday...I can't believe it is yet again a Monday, but I am blessed and happy see another one!

Next, my apologies for being an absentee blogger the past couple of weeks, I've been pretty busy. I promise to do better!

We had the office MWE (model work environment) event on Wednesday and when I tell you I was excited that it went extremely well, that is an understatement. I pretty much planned and shopped for the event myself as my help was indisposed :-/ which didn't really turn out too bad, but I went to the store at least 3 days in a row. I have never cleaned so much chicken in my life, and might I add that I HATE cleaning chicken...that is the worst animal to clean. I definitely cannot clean chicken and eat it the same day, bad bad thoughts! Aside from that making the burgers was pretty simple and the side dishes was pretty quick too. I was really glad that everyone showed up, some with kids in tow and some that hadn't even said they were coming! I would definitely call it a very successful MWE.

I am taking on a project for a friend of mine. I hope to have it done as a Christmas gift as I'm not sure how long it's going to take to complete, but I'm excited!! I will try to show you pictures as I put it all together, but they will be limited as she is a reader.

I also have a thought on the "Cash for Clunkers" program. While initially $4500 sounds like an awesome reward for a car that you no longer want, or may still want, but figure you can get a better one - please weigh your options. You'd be giving up a low insurance, no car note vehicle for a full coverage, 3-5 year monthly bill and maybe only 3-5 mpg increase in gas mileage (which still depends on how you drive). Unless your car is dead to the world, it doesn't sound like such a great deal to me, but to each its own.
