really???

so today started out just being a busy day.. not bad so much.

i was late to almost every meeting, trying to get just one more thing done before i went. but i got there, and i got everything done that i needed to.

then, as i was driving home from a meeting in salt lake, i saw a dear friend on the road. just so happened that she needed a ride home from the car shop. i was happy to oblige.

i parked at her little home and went upstairs for a bit. the next thing i knew, her phone was ringing. a friendly neighbor asking her if she was aware there was a blue subaru being towed from her driveway. nope. sure wasn't aware of that. yep. that was my little subbie. i could rant my frustration here about the ridiculous nature of being towed from a driveway... but i'll spare you, and spare myself a repeat. i'll suffice it to say that provo towing lords are absurd, and i'm pretty sure they have more power than the police department.

$150 later...

we had a little upswing on the day... i had my first go at making nam tok, and it was quite successful. this is my fav from the land of smiles. if you haven't had it, go to your local thai restaurant and ask for beef waterfall.

then someone let me at the dishes. scrubbing, scrubbing, crack... that was the handle off of bobby's favorite giant reese's mug from new york. right on off. sweet. yep. that one made me cry a bit. but i decided to give another go at the dishes.

big mistake...

turned on the garbage disposal and managed to eat up a fork and spoon.

really?

and just to top it off, how about how the dishwasher (which is unsecured due to the lack of countertops) pops out and the trays of loaded dishes just about slide across the room.

for real. and with that. i think i have permission to go to bed and try again tomorrow..

C.- I wish I had a real recipe. I just asked the woman at the Thai food store and experimented a bit. Although, my husband LOVES nam tok, so we decided that the next time we are going to measure everything so we know how to make it like we like it!

What is with the towing of the cars in Provo?! Nowhere else in the world. It's like the Gadianton robbers with their secret combinations. Sheesh! I've been towed more than my share in P-town. Sigh. Better luck next time!
