Math and more...

At the beginning of the day I knew I would have to sit down at this computer and complete my multiple homework assignments for math.  I also knew it would take me hours to complete.  Yet here I am, writing on my blog and NOT doing math homework.  I'm just not sure what it is about math that makes me want to eat a bunch of Halloween candy and chips in order to avoid biting my nails.  Math makes me nervous.  I see the problem whether it be lots of words with numbers that you have to figure out how to solve, or if it is just a basic algebraic expression that needs to be broken down in order to calculate appropriately.  How many people can say that they would rather write a five page paper on the disadvantages of math rather than complete one homework assignment in math consisting of only 20 questions.  Ugh! I just really don't like it.  Its almost like my brain seriously shuts off when I'm trying to comprehend this stuff.  Now basic, simple equations are my friends and I don't mind them... but when you have numbers and letters all mixed together with powers and fractions and equal to or not equal to or less than and you have to graph them or find if they go to infinity or not... yuck... I'm already getting a headache explaining why I don't like it. Oh my. How come the schools can't make you take a short quiz that asks if you will need to use this stuff in your future.. Yes or No.  If you select No, than guess what?!?!? Well you get to skip Math, that's what!! Now doesn't that sound like it makes a whole lot of sense? It does to me. I'm just sayin'!
Until next time....SS

So I found a recipe online for pecan tarts and I decided to make them with a few changes.  They are called Caramel Pecan Tarts, but I didn't have any caramels, so I decided to improvise & add some chocolate chips instead.  Mmmm..mmmm..pretty darn good I must say! I don't know exactly when this knack for cooking began, but I'm starting to get a bit good at this! **)

I love my dogs, they are the best in the world! Just like husbands, they can drive you crazy sometimes!! Mine want to follow me everywhere and while it is cute, it can also be annoying when I'm trying to get the two guest rooms ready for company my doggies keep trying to jump on those beds. They know they are not allowed and still want to push the envelope! UGH! There are many days when I wish they could speak english and understand everything I'm saying. Of course than I snap back to reality and know that will never happen. Probably for the best otherwise I'd have to hear Ashley screaming profanities for being put in the kennel. Heehee!

New Blog and a New Site Name!

Well I did it.  I finally re-activated my blog and got the name that I wanted! I also signed up for a Twitter account even though I do not understand how to "Tweet."  Its like they use a different language there.  Well I better get on it so I can understand it.  This is the tech-savvy age we are in and if you don't get on board, you'll get lost in the shuffle!

My Twitter name is also StephiSteff... so its easy to find me on here or there!

Until next time...
