tonight, we went over to Tonya's house for a crafting event and made holiday cards. that was a heck of a lot of fun, and now we have 20 lovely cards to be sending out. i was surprised at how long it can take to make 10 cards. i've made one or two before, but not that many. it definitely puts into perspective the time that Tonya puts into her work.
and now, i'm loving the fact that we got a crockpot, because dinner was ready when we got home, save thawing the rice. it's pretty good too, though the recipe needs more tweaking. i was expecting a less runny sauce, and Jeff thinks the chicken is a touch dry. not a bad attempt, though.
oh, and i finally got around to calling the apartment complex about the dishwasher. as i mildly suspected, it turns out it was toast. we needed a new one. however, they keep a stock on hand, apparently, so now we have a new dishwasher. woot. :)
