Used to pay for Ale's 2009-2010 enrollment! (we get a yearly bonus that equals one monthly salary, we get 30% in May/June and the other 70% in November)

HELP!!!

May 22nd, 2009 at 12:11 pm

I'm thinking of buying stuff I KNOW I really won't use...

You know, things like... a sewing machine (no, I don't know how to sew...no, I don't think I'd learn if I bought one... yes, I've always wanted to learn BUT...even if I bought it ....I wouldn't have the time to learn to use it at the moment!!)

... there are also a couple other "useless" things in my mind...so...

HELP!!!

somebody talk me out of this!!!!

Maybe sis is serious this time?

May 18th, 2009 at 02:44 pm

She's always complaining that she has no money, but I always see her spend the kind of small money that ends up amounting to A LOT!... About 2 weeks ago, she asked me for my chicken lasagna recipe...said she'd decided to start cooking lasagnas on the weeked to sell... she'd take orders THEN cook, so as not to end up with a perishable product that won't sell... Now, pasta is not her strenght... but, she is an amazing cook, so I know she'll be able to do this...
BUT, I need to TEACH her, because last time was a disaster... she made pasta the top layer in her lasagna, so it dried up in the oven... Also, she didn't have basil on hand, panicked when she coudln't find it (it WAS there!) and substituted for oregano... er... And, finding the sauce a bit "too bland" she decided to "fix it" with pepper... er...

So, no, it wasn't her best try...I'm supposed to help her make another try this weekend, and then the week after that she'll try to do it on her own again...

I also helped her price the lasagna...

Hopefully, this will help her increase her income a bit!

I'll let you know how it turns out!

Non-financial. Prayers needed!

Please, if you pray, add my friend and colleague Rosa Maria to your prayers.
She suffered a severe stroke this morning and is currently in the ICU.

Thanks!
