 The more I read reviews on Amazon the more I think that there is no need to upgrade my electric knife sharpener (it was on my mind due to the bandaid on my left middle finger, thanks to my very sharp knives). My little Presto $30 sharpener has so many positive reviews over anything comparable (and always more expensive) that I'm learning to love what I have. I think that my improved skill with the stropping steel helps, too. 

I'm really craving a trip to Steve's Meat Market in Desoto so I can get various ground animals. Tomorrow is another day of watching four kids, possibly Wednesday if I'm not watching them again. Thursday at the latest. 

The kids were climbing walls today and got to bed at a decent hour, unlike last night. If the weather is mild enough I may let them rampage out back to burn off some energy. Pari wants to play queen bee and is very bossy with the younger kids. I think finding something else for her do to intermittently is going to be a good idea. 

I'm still loving our quarter cow Christmas gift from my parents. We had a sirloin that fed the family for dinner. I'm planning some more meals once a bit of ground beef has thawed, which gives us time to knock out some leftovers. 

Far as I can tell the stomach flu plague that passed through us (and into another family, sorry guys, we are usually the victims and not the carriers) has taken down about 10 people. I don't know if it's a norovirus but it is nasty and just plain mean. I hate stomach flu but it seems to hit us once every couple years just to make us feel mortal.

I'd blame you for my gut issues, but I haven't seen you in weeks. It is some sort of infectious because Lawnchair and his mother are also feeling woogy.

I do suspect a norovirus, one shut down a school in the KC area shortly before Christmas so it's definitely going around.

Presto Pro Eversharp, you should be able to find it at a local store. The amazon reviews are through the roof even compared to the more expensive models, and especially for $30 you can't go wrong.

Added to my cart! My knives are good steel but SUCK for edges. I've been meaning to get them sharpened forever but don't know where to take them. So bam - in the cart :)
