And here are apple dumplings, which I really rushed to assemble and only did half of the crust because I didn't have time for the full batch.

Attachment 24633

Attachment 24634

The dark bits are from the cinnamon-raisin filling poking through. I wanted to take a pic of them on a pool of the cider sauce that goes with them, but by the time I remembered that wasn't really possible.
The first thing I ever made with that pie crust were apple dumplings, so I I was looking forward to doing them again knowing full well how awesome that crust is. As usual with it, people commented on the crust being amazing. Flawless recipe is flawless.

Dear female neighours:

It is after 11 at night. I am trying to studying. I am trying to *understand* math. Shut.the.****.up!


I even closed my damn window and I can still hear you guys speaking at the top of your lungs. I swear if this continues during study season I will report you.

Housemate: why the hell are you making 200 trips inside and outside at this hour of the night. Go study.

Damn undergrads.

I just can't help but wonder what it feels like to be 'middle class.' My working class parents are 60 (mom) and 70 (dad), and they are still working. Probably will be until they die. As were their parents. I'd like to break that cycle.
My parents are moving to the DR when they're unable to work because any SS won't be enough to live in the US and they don't want to live out their lives in the drabness of cold US winters.

I keep trying to sleep, but every time I lay down, I can't breathe. I decided not to go to the doctor on Saturday, but dang it, this is getting ridiculous. I've been sick for 10 days now and it's not getting better. I really hate going to the doctor, though. We have a pretty high deductible and no office copays, so we have to pay out of pocket for sick visits. Plus, our prescription coverage is pretty crappy, too, so I know this is going to end up costing me at least $200. I better have effin' strep and ear infections or something because I'll be mighty angry at myself if I go and it's all viral.

I need a deep tissue massage. The boy had a go at massaging my back yesterday and it's like gravel under my skin because of all the knots.

Sigh.. Another wedding this Sunday. I don't like events on Sundays, the public transport is rubbish and in some cases, non existent.

Oh, nynaeve. I have been there, still there. It stinks paying out of pocket. Please go to the doctor. I didn't go a couple of times when I should have, and ended up paying way more in the long run. Lesson learned. Also, I tell doctors I don't have prescription coverage and they almost always are able to give me a cheap prescription.

I hope you feel better.

This has been on my chest for a while and I've spoken to my mom about it but it's really starting to irritate me now.

They are five lights outside the house. There is one on the verandah which is controlled by one switch, and the other four around the house controlled by a central switch.

I believe that there is no need to turn on all four lights for the entire night, but more cost effective if we do so when going to bed. My housemate on the other hand believes that all five lights should be promptly turned on at 7:30. This means that they will burn for approximately 11 hours until I wake up in the morning.

I have never seen her turn off a single outside light. The first day I woke up about ten in the morning and they were still in. All she does is locks up in her room, turn on the light, close up all the windows in the living room and retreats back to her room. Then she complains that she has problems breathing because she can't open her windows?!

Sigh. I don't intend to be spending a lot of money on electricity bills. I don't have it to spend in the first place.

I prefer to keep bacon out of my grilled cheese, but y'all know I'm not bacon-obsessed.
I've never had a grilled cheese sandwich, but that one looks delicious.

Even I, one of the 4 people on earth who do not have a love affair with all things cheese, still have a hankering for a toasted cheese sandwich once in awhile. I think tonight will be one of those times.

Middle class has sure changed since I was a kid. My parents were considered middle class. They lived just as I live now, owned a nice house and nice cars and bought things as they wanted, but lived paycheck to paycheck. But I am no where near what they call middle class now. Not even close.

Don't get me started on our wonderful health care system here in the good old USA. I have what is considered 'good' insurance. It sucks royally. 6 pills cost me $270 last week. My out of pocket this month alone is going to be near $1000 not counting any further tests. And if I have to have surgery - that's gonna be bad.

Trying hard to keep my rant to a minimum so next topic is unicorns. Do you have one? What color is it? Is it sparkly?

Aw, thank you RB!

And thanks, ruralcurls.

Nynaeve, I'm sorry you're so sick. I've had bronchitis and it's so awful.

Jeepy, that's a ridiculous amount. I will never understand this opposition to real healthcare that people have.
The good thing about this job is how good and cheap the insurance is.

I rant about all of this, frequently.

Thank God, so far we're blessed to be very healthy and have held off of any need for prescriptions and multiple doctors visits.

I am so thankful for our insurance. I never would have been able to have all the testing and treatment for my thyroid if I had to pay full price for all of it. I added up the before insurance prices and I'd probably still be paying for it 10 years later, not to mention the follow-up visits because my medication never seemed to even out and the monthly cost of pills.

America is a great place, but our lack of healthcare system for ALL is absolutely infuriating. My mother will die sooner than she should because she can't afford to see a Dr., I realized this talking with her a few days ago and it makes me so angry and upset. She's got so much wrong and can't even afford the basics.

And I'm in a foul mood this morning because I've got to take my boo to the vet for a teeth cleaning today and my stomach is in knots over it. It's going to be a long, long day.

i paid $33 for a three month supply of my HRT, two different medications. and i have the bio-identicals, which cost 3 times as much as the synthetic stuff. if i didn't have prescription coverage through work, it would still only come out to $100 per month.

would you like me to adopt you, jeepy?
