Today hasn't been a good day :( We just found out my husbands work's cutting everyones hours and he will only be working 2 days one week 3 days the other alternately. I'm still in shock. I honestly don't know how we're going to pay our bills, let alone buy food or gas. I've been working as a fill-in for our town clerk for the past few years, but I may go a month without having to fill-in, so I can't rely on that money. I guess I will be hunting for a part time job. I have been a child wrangler at home since September 2001 and don't know who would want to hire me. The sad part is I know we will have to cut down and I know what that means... the Internet and cell phones will be going. I don't want to think about that right now :( On a happier, yummy note we had these California Kabobs a few nights ago. I love kabobs and have fond memories of having family barbecues when I was young with my dads family. We would just have shish kabobs. I remember huge bowls filled with meat, veggies, and a brown liquid. They were the BEST! I wish I knew what exactly was in that brown liquid. While these kabobs were nothing like the kabobs of my childhood, they were really good. The lemon flavor gives it a nice refreshing taste. Everyone really enjoyed these and they were a ton of fun!
