Happy Birthday to me

Well today was the big 39. Most of it I spent sick as a dog. Hubby took over all parenting. They went and got me preggo pops and that was really great. He also made his famous chimichanga's. He makes these, Now that I think about it, every year on my birthday. Other then waffles I think these are the only other things he knows how to make, Hey I was happy, I did not have to cook!!! Everyone loved em, of course.
Chimichanga's Dad's way
10 pack burrito shells
1 lb hamburger (cooked and drained)adding in the seasoning
1 block of cheese(shredded)
1 can refried beans
1 package taco seasoning
1 can chopped olives
1 jar salsa
( you could certainly substitute any homemade "stuffs" for the prepackaged, This is dad we are talking about here hahaha!!!)
So you take your burrito shell, layer in the beans, meat, cheese, sprinkle on some olives and some salsa. Fold up. Put a tablespoon or so of butter in a frying pan, Fry both sides of the chimichanga and that is it.
No this is not "healthy" by any means, But you are talking once a year here!!! He is always quite happy about doing it so I don't pick on him about frying etc. Although sometimes I'd like to hehehe. I don't fry things too much cause it upsets my tummy. I of course could not eat them this year, I could barely stand the smell of em, But everyone else gobbled them up. It was all in all a very nice birthday for me.
I also wanted to add that I had three crock pot meals published in the new molly makes dinners ecookbook. So if you signed up for the Molly ezines following the link on my page, You should get an email soon about the ecookbook. I have to tell you, if you purchase one cookbook this year it should be this one. I was looking through it today and OH MY GOSH, It has a ton of real everyday good foods recipes in all categories, She tested each recipe and gave her opinion on them, It was really well done I thought. My recipes were Crockpot porkchops, Crockpot chunky apples, Crockpot ghoulash, and Crockpot sweet and sour meatballs. I do want to add that I do not get any money for anyone purchasing this ebook. I just love her stuff she puts out, It is real people real stuff we can all use. I would atleast tell you to sign up for her free emails, They are great, and you can also visit her blog for other great ideas. Anyway that is all for me today. Having a great 39th Michelle

Happy birthday!

I am new to your blog and am just looking around.

I noticed that you homeschool your kids, even though you have poor English skills.

Could you please stop capitalizing letters after commas? It's wrong, and I have no idea where you get that from. This will help a lot with the run-on sentences that completely take over your blog. Many of the entries are very distracting and difficult to read because of this.

Do you send your kids to an outside tutor for their English?

Wow! Some people can be so rude, can't they? Nobody told them to read your blog and if it bothers them that much, they can stop reading anytime :) I happen to like your blog. You shouldn't have to justify anything you do to anyone except God and your husband. The english comment was totally unnecessary as well.

This is a bit late, but after reading your reply post I HAD to know that the mean comment was.
I personally love the crazy capitalizations and run on sentences. Make me feel like you are talking to me instead of writing for someone.
PS there are grammar issues in Anon's post as well.
