02:20 pm - Swedish Meatballs
Okay, so in an effort to get me to update my LJ, I will share my pregnancy symptoms and house info. with you. Sorry, it's my life these days and therefore, all I've got.... :)
My nephew Henry was christened on Sunday, so we had a big family party on Saturday. For our parties, the hostess does the majority of the work and all the sisters (and sometimes the brothers) bring hors'doevres (sp?) and such. My sister Robin usually brings taco dip, I usually do veggies, etc. Sandy...sandy does swedish meatballs. I, of course, have never enjoyed this, as they are little balls of meat swimming in meaty sauce. Ugh. However, they're usually a real hit at parties. Just ask Art how many he ate. In any case, my preganancy took on a whole new meaning this weekend. When my sister took the lid off the crock pot of meatballs, I literally had to run from the kitchen at top speed while gagging. They smelled just like meaty, gross, wet cat food. I gagged several times, and could have honestly vomited if I'd let myself. I had to stay out of the kitchen until the meatballs were taken outside to the buffet table, b/c even the smallest whiff of them sent me running. It was so gross, and quite comical to my sisters. Naturally, everyone at the party loved the meatballs. Raved about them. Ate them all.
That is my life these days. What fun. :)
Also, we had our house inspection today. Happily, there are no hidden sinkholes, there is no major termite damage, and walls didn't fall down when the inspector tapped on them. :) Our house is indeed a very very very fine house.
