For some reason, I have been thinking about my Grandma this week. Have you ever had one of those weeks?

Ok. I guess I owe Brittany her demands since she was so disappointed in me for not posting pics. So Sunday dinner will be Brittany's favorites. But as Teri posted, I am highly allergic to strawberries. Do you think she's trying to kill me for revenge?LOL But I will have to think about pics of the other messy room. Hmm, maybe if she agrees to help me clean it?
But someone asked what ketsup casserole is so I am posting the recipe in my recipes. I am also posting a delicious chocolate cake. Go over and take a peek. Until next time...

Sympathy will not work...I am officially on strike until one of my demands are met!!!
Demand 1: Pictures of one of your other messy rooms on the blog by tomorrow at 1300 hrs.
Demand 2: Strawberry Cheesecake for Sunday dinner for the next two weeks.
Demand 3: Lunch at McCallister's to include the chocolate cake on Friday.
Demand 4: Ketchup casserole and homemade macaroni and one Strawberry cheesecake for dinner one night within the next two weeks.
These are the demands, and I hate to use threats but your "housecleaning mouse" feels wronged and demands retribution....I have spoken!!!!

Well, before I ask for help from all of you, let me refresh your memory on "the snake". ( You can find that story in Stroll Through my Garden, May 27 post) And I have to tell you when that happened, I laughed so hard that I had an asthma attack and wet my pants. You just had to be there to know how funny it was.
But the downside to that innocent mistake was that she has never helped me work in my garden again! And now she is threatening me not to help me clean house again just because I forgot to take pictures.
Come on ladies, play on Brittany's sympathy and tell her she has to help me because no one else will touch my house. Tell her PLEASE! Until next time...

HAHA, she should've never given me her password...I have hacked in to Gram's blog and she would have to ask me how to change her password..lol Ok I have read her response to my post and she claims that she said "maybe", the real conversation went something like this (my memory may be a little hazy from all of the dust I inhaled while cleaning the "pit of despair" as I fondly call it :p) But I said "You should put before and after pics to show all your craft lady friends what you used to have to wade through to get to your computer and then after ones to show what miracles I perform". She the replied, "I really should, they would get a big kick out of it". So I said, "sounds like a plan". I do vaguely remember her saying something that could have been "Maybe". But I think she should have to post them simply for your enjoyment....cause let me tell you ladies...it was a DISASTER ZONE!!! However, since she apparently found a loophole (somehow she always does this), I will concede this argument and bow out gracefully. Although someone might care to remind her that the last time she won the battle, I won the war.....(REMEMBER THE SNAKE EPISODE AND WHAT IT COST YOU!!!!) LOLOL in a wickedly, sneaky, slightly evil witch laugh.....Love, Bree a.k.a "THE FAVORITE NIECE"

Ok. You have heard Brittany's disappointment of me not posting before and after pics of my craft room.
She wanted me to take before and after pics and post them on my blog. Well I said "MAYBE".
But just let me tell you, this room was a disaster area. No one would come in my room except me because they were afraid something would jump out at them.lol And Brittany really worked very hard at cleaning it. And I must say, it is a world of difference. I can actually walk in my craft room without tripping over something.LOL
So Brittany came down and changed backgrounds on my front page for me because I am computerer illiterate and don't know how. And when she opened it, she said "Gram, where are the before and after pictures of your room" (OOPS) So when I explained that I didn't do it, she said, "WHAT, you promised." And I explained that I said "MAYBE" (Loophole).
But I ask you, would you show before pics of your craft room? We're taking a vote to see who wins this argument. (Really it is a make believe argument). But join in on the fun. Leave a post in favor of me or Brittany.
But my room is so clean now, I CAN"T FIND ANYTHING! Until next time... (Still no pics)LOLOLOL

THIS IS BRITTANY!!! GRAM IS A BIG CHEATING FIBBER!!!! SHE SAID SHE WAS GOING TO TAKE PICTURES OF HER NASTY COMPUTER/CRAFT ROOM BEFORE HER AND HER MOUSE CLEANED IT AND POST THEM SO YOU GUYS COULD SEE WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE AND THEN THE AFTER ONES SO YOU COULD SEE IT NOW!!! WELL TODAY SHE INFORMED ME THAT SHE DIDNT TAKE THEM!!! SO SHE IS GROUNDED FROM HER "PUTER"!!!! SHE WILL BE UNAVAILABLE FOR COMPUTER TIME UNTIL I SAY OTHERWISE!!!!!!
P.S. JUST KIDDING BUT YOU SHOULD HARASS HER ABOUT WHY SHE DIDNT SHOW YOU THE "PIT OF DESPAIR" (that's a "Princess Bride" reference for any of you who know it)
P.S.S. I TOO MOURN PATRICK SWAYZE'S PASSING!!!! WE ARE HAVING A DIRTY DANCING MARATHON AT MY HOUSE!!! YOU CAN COME!!!!! EXCEPT WE CANT TELL GRAM!!!!
