sometimes I wonder..

why I cannot for the life of me say NO!! Is this a weak characteristic? Am I a people pleaser? Is it because I want everyone to like me? Case in point. I have a current plumbing bill of, oh $125.00. So, plumbers wife calls and would like to trade for "some of my delicious cooking"! Oh, ok, sure.. I should have written the is her request
2 pans of lasagna
1 buffalo wing dip
1 Colby Jack Chicken dip
1 pan of Macaroni and cheese
1lb of chicken salad
1lb of Pimento cheese
I email her back and tell her she now owes me $40.00, she says, just make it one pan of lasagna and we will call it even..geez thanks! needless to say, I spent more than $125.00 at the store.. when will I learn!!!
on another note, a good friend brought me 25 tomatoes and I made 2 tomato for me and one for ...her..see I can't stop being nice!! LOL!

This sounds like a lot of cooking, but you took it in stride! Yay. Hope your plumbing is fixed!

Oh my gosh, that is totally something that would happen to me, ha! That's horrible and if there's a next time, ask to see the list first and negotiate from there.
I'm guessing she doesn't cook to think one pan of Lasagna is $40? lol
