My closet is a huge mess and I hate going through piles of clothes to sort through them and put them up. I seem to end up wearing the same 5 or 6 outfits most of the time and all the rest of the clothes just hang in the closet looking neglected and forlorn.
One thing that is really starting to bug me is the huge collection of tee shirts that I have now. Over the years I have collected way too many tee shirts and can probably go the rest of my life without having to buy an y more tee shirts.
I have shirts from concerts, from vacation towns and from all the walk-a-thon charity events I used to do. Most of them are size large men’s tee shirts with logos and designs on them. And I never really wear any of them!
The only time I wear a men’s tee shirt is when I am going to bed and want to sleep in a big shirt and Joe Boxer pants instead of a nightgown. Truth is, I almost never like to wear nightgowns anymore – they make me feel frumpy. In a grandma way. Not that a tee shirt and pj bottoms are less frumpy, but they keep my legs warm and my grandma never wore them – I guarantee.
I’d sleep in the raw if I didn’t have a roommate. But we need a certain amount of modesty in the house. So PJs are the norm around here.
Some days I don’t want a big meal – but I’m hungry. Like today. I don’t want a hamburger or even chicken for lunch. I decided to make some fucking excellent NACHOS, baby!
This was easy and I got lucky about having all the ingredients needed already bought and in my refrigerator. I got sharp cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, refried beans, fresh salsa, chopped sweet onions, a sliced jalepeno and my favorite tortilla chips, On the Border chips.
The hardest thing for me to figure out about Mexican cooking was how to deal with an avocado and how to deal with refried beans. I knew they couldn’t be hard to do, but I never knew anything about Mexican food when I was growing up except for once in a great while my mom would drive through Taco Bell and get a dozen tacos for us kids.
I found some links on YouTube about cooking. Now I can do nachos, tacos, burritos and enchiladas. Working on learning even more authentic Mexican food, too. I fucking love this stuff!
Low and Slow
Low and slow is how you would have to drive this anywhere you went unless it has hydraulics, and then I would still drive it slow so as to not mess anything up. I can just imagine how much it cost to completely restore both of these. I might have chosen a different color scheme but to each their own. I know that my father would love this, so I am going to print it out and take it to show him. He has been looking for some kind of restoration project and I think this may be exactly what he needs.
When he is done, he can take it to car shows and also use it to travel with mom. They have always wanted to travel and she has been trying to convince him to buy an RV. This would be perfect for just the two of them so long as they don’t try to take any of the grand kids with them, it would work great. I cannot wait to show him this. It would be fun to work on something like this with him. He likes it when I come over and help him with stuff since I never would when I was a teenager.
