Dishwasher problems....

This post has NOTHING to do with my crafting, but I felt that it's important to share anyways...
Repair man for the dishwasher just left. Did you know that Indiana has one of the HARDEST water systems in the world? (Gotta thank that limestone down in southern area of the state.)  Our dishwasher is under 6 months old but was already having issues:  the motor is laboring, dishes aren't getting clean, there's a film inside all over EVERYTHING...  Here's what he told me to do:

But You Don't Look Sick

So, while procrastinating the work, I have to do, I saw a status on a friend's facebook page: "YOU DON'T LOOK SICK?!? No, I don't. It's hard to explain to someone when they have no clue. It's a daily struggle feeling sick on the inside while you look fine on the outside. Put this as your status for at least 1 hr if you or someone you know has an invisible illness. (Anxiety, PTSD., Lupus, Fibromyalgia, IC, Chronic Fatigue, Diabetes, Crohns, Arthritis, Menieres, IBS, Epilepsy, MS, Depression, etc.)." So, I scrolled down to post my comment and discovered the website I'm going to be figuring my way around this site a bit more, but if you've stumbled onto this post, click the link below, to help you better understand what's it's like to live with an "invisible illness".

So, I went looking through my posts and realized that my post about the amazing Papa Roux is missing!!!! NOOOOOOOO!!!!!   I will just have to rewrite it.

If you're in Indiana for any reason at all, you are required to go to 10th Street and Post Road where you will come across Papa Roux.  Papa Roux is an AMAZING, authentic (they ARE from New Orleans) Cajun food.  Seriously.  I've got a friend who's from N'awlins and when she eats there, it's HOME to her.
(and Don Stuck of X103 loves their food as well; just saying)

Here's the link to their site:   

OH, also:  unlimited sides when you dine in AND free iced tea?????  C'mon, people!  Log off the 'net and get over there!!!!!  (I go for the chicken po-boy and my sides are almost always the Étouffée (had to copy/paste because I don't know the short cuts for the accents yet) and bread pudding (DELICOUSNESS!!!!), and Monkey always gets the Kid's Hot Dog (sausage on french bread; no milk 'cause she's allergic) with apple sauce and french bread as sides.
ALSO you can get your food gluten free!!!!

Another holiday has snuck up on me.  I don't have anything premade, ready to sell, however, I will offer 15% on any commissions placed today through Sunday, March 20!  I still don't have a telephone for the business yet, so please e-mail me (yeah, yeah, I know... I don't particularly care for not having PayPal or anything and having you just do e-mail contacting, I'm sorry!) at

Just Previews of Awesomeness

Alright, I think I already posted about this, but I finished that big brown blanket (Love you, Jo!) but I can't/won't post a picture of it until she has it ('twas s'pose to be a Christmas present).  So, here are a few pictures of other pieces I am working on!
