Terrible Timing

Gary and I FINALLLLLLY agreed to buy a new dishwasher. I never wavered on my desire for a new dishwasher but my husband thought we had enough motivation and time to do all our dishes by hand. I don't think he realized how much we both despise washing dishes. And boy do we use a lot of dishes.

Here's the pretty new dishwasher we'll be getting soon! (Maytag MDB8949 in white)

Later, on the very same day I went and bought the dishwasher, I decided it was a perfect time to resume Project Baby Quilt; and I was a very bad wife. Not only did I find and buy the new backing for Emma's quilt, I walked out with a new quilt pattern and all the fabric it needed, a couple hundred dollars more poor than when I first walked in.

Terrible timing.

Sorry, Gary....

Why oh why!

I woke up today on the wrong side of the bed. For no reason whatsoever, I was in a mood. No, Gary, you didn't do anything, I promise. I even slept well. Regardless, in a mood I was.

That was the case until I drove Gspice to work super early this morning. As we stopped at the red on Water Street, what passed right in front of us? A PRAIRIE FARMS distributing semi-truck. HOLY SMOKES! Decorah carries Prairie Farms products?

Well, it just so happens that my all-time, most favorite, amazingly delicious cottage cheese comes from Prairie Farms. I can't eat anything else. Walmart doesn't carry it, Fareway doesn't carry it, but I haven't really checked anywhere else in town. We saw the truck go past the other side of town when we got closer to Deco so I'm guessing the truck was headed to Quillin's.

I called Quillin's. Do they carry Prairie Farms cottage cheese? No.


My hopes of every finding Prairie Farms cottage cheese in Decorah has gone back to nothing. Sad day.
