Casey is in Big Trouble!

So as some of you may or may not know i love Top Chef. i have been a fan since season 1.

last night was the season finally of Top Chef Season 5 and i was rooting for Carla to win. she cooks with a lot of love and is a master at simple classic french cooking.

last night i stayed up after working 14 hours just to watch Carla win.

i was so sad when Carla was basically taken out of the running because she let her Soux Chef Casey bully her into making two really bad decisions.

Casey you are on my shit list!

Are you serious????

If you have purchased a home in the last year or so you are aware of the $7500 first time

 home buyer tax credit. This tax credit had to be paid back in 15 years.

What you may not know is that now they have raised it to $8,000 and it does not have be paid back!!!!



 It only applies to people who purchased their home in 2009. so I missed out on $8,000 by 2 months!

 Check out the excerpt I got from SunTrust especially the section in the red box.

life update

Well the Universe is ignoring me so I did not get a job for my birthday; in fact I had a really crappy week.

But that is in the past and the weekend was very good considering that I FINALLY got my buffet, so I got all my china off my floor and the wine glasses off my counter. Then I got a visit for Shroomy and her hubs which was so nice, and finally on Sunday I spend 6 hours with my Mom and her long lost best friend and her daughter.

I am so happy for my Mom. She and I are very close but I knew she was sad that she did not have a friend her own age to talk to. About 5 years ago she had a good friend whose husband was friends with my dad. But when the men had a falling out the women just stopped talking, and I know that really hurt her. Last week she re-connected with her high school best friend who was also her maid of honor at her wedding. Kids and jobs got in the way and they had lost touch. Well now over 20 years later we found out that her friend had been living in the same town as us for years!

Last week they went to dinner and then on Sunday we had our girls day out which began with a trip to the movies to se New in Town, followed by hot chocolate and appetizers at California Pizza Kitchen. We had a really nice time and best of all, my Mom has her friend back.

For Valentines Russ and I are going to see Avenue Q. we are very excited. Our plan is to come home after the show and order Chinese for dinner. We never go out for Valentines, the service is crap.

Monday is a holiday for me so that means no work! Hell Freaking Yeah!
