This was the week of replacing credit cards. Last Sunday, Corvette thought he lost his wallet. We looked high and low and could not find it. I had to get online and transfer all the money from one bank account to another to make sure nobody get access to it. Next, numerous phones calls were made to cancel debit and credit cards. We had to pay a few bills from the account with the money and organize the amounts so we knew where the money was going and what was left over. We have two accounts because that just works for us. Corvette is a stickler for recording everything in his check book. Me, not so much. I prefer to check online for the amounts to clear. As far as balancing a checkbook, that just doesn’t happen with me. I am far too right-brained to even attempt it. I think in pictures not numbers. That is one reason I like blogging so much. Trust me if math was involved I would not be blogging!
So, after taking care of all the financial issues this weekend we went to work on Monday. After work I came home and went to change my clothes. I found a pair of shorts and a t-shirt to put on. As soon as I picked up the t-shirt I saw it. What did I see you ask? You got it. The missing wallet! We have no clue how it got on my shelf but, what really baffled us is how we did not find it as we went through the house several times before giving up and taking action. Oh well, chalk it up to fairies, trolls or the black hole that eats car keys, remote controls and every ink pen we bring in the house.
The rest of the week was uneventful until Thursday when I receive a call from my credit card company. Seems someone hacked my account! Apparently there were three charges all on the same day from a questionable company. The card company asked me if I made the charges and of course I did not. So thank goodness the card company was on the ball and questioned the charges in the first place. They immediately cancelled the card. I will not be charged for the mysterious charges. Thank goodness another catastrophe averted!
On a good note, Fuzzy and Wuzzy turned three months old on Friday the 13th. Not bad for a day associated with bad luck. That’s Wuzzy on the left and Fuzzy on the right. You see those shoulders on Fuzzy. I think football just might be in his future! Especially if Hippie Guys has anything to say about it Green Bay Packers look out! Fuzzy’s coming!
We rounded out the week by purchasing a new TV stand for our flat panel TV. The TV was sitting on an old stand and it was not a good match. Now the TV will sit up higher and everything will be flatter against the wall. Corvette bought it without me at the store and generally that is not a good idea. He did call me and I got online to look at it but there was not a picture of it. He was going to get one made of wood but they were out of stock so he went with this one. I think it will have to grow on me, but this is definitely better than the old stand.
Well, that is it from the chocolate household. Today’s Sunday Brunch recipe is in honor of Thanksgiving. Although I am not preparing Thanksgiving dinner this year as we are attending Hippie Guy and Flower Child’s first hosted Thanksgiving dinner. This is my recipe for Sausage Stuffing in the Crock Pot.
Two 6 oz. bags Mrs. Cubbison’s stuffing
1 cup (2 sticks) melted butter or margarine
6 oz sweet Italian sausage, browned and crumbled
1 granny smith apple, chopped
1 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 cups broth
Combine dressing with butter or margarine and vegetables. Stir liquid in gradually. Spoon into the crock pot and place setting on low. The stuffing will be ready in about three to four hours. Makes 12 (1/2 cup) servings.
