I discovered the source of the vinegary smell in my car. A ziplocked (thank god) bag of liquified bell peppers. They must have fallen out of Victoria's lunch a while ago.

Started A Girl Named Zippy last night. Finished it, too. Cute and well-crafted, not much substance. It did make me laugh, though.

The dog was sick yesterday, which I discovered upon arriving home and setting my purse and the diaper bag in a puddle of the stuff. She seemed to be feeling better by that time.

Victoria asked for macaroni and cheese so I started boiling some water and I opened the box and removed the bag of cheese powder. When the water boiled, I reached for the box with way too much enthusiasm and sent noodles flying across the kitchen. I didn't realize that the dog liked dry noodles, but she crunched through quite a few while I was finding the broom.

It's just a thrill a minute around here.

I hope the peppers were not liquefied originally? Ewwwwwww.

Serious empathy here, as my son just had a major diaper blowout that got on his clothes, my clothes, the bathroom floor -- he had to have a shower and I had to do laundry so the smell wouldn't linger. Now he seems to be feeling much better, too! I wondered why he wouldn't eat his breakfast.

No, they started out as crisp strips of red bell pepper. I'm guessing that was on Thursday or Friday of last week.

Poor you! It is at times like that when I try to be glad that I live here and now, with plenty of hot water and bleach and machines. I think of Betty MacDonald's The Egg and I, which is very funny in general but has a great description of what a grueling campaign any meal entailed when they were roughing it.

Glad he's feeling better!

She eats them?
Wow. You almost had a new gourmet dish there though, K. Sippy Bell Peppers!

Re: She eats them?
Sippy Bell Peppers? Sounds like one of those characters they drag out on slow news days to amaze the populace: "Sippy Bell is 98 years old and lives on her own in the home where she raised all 14 of her children. She attributes her longevity to a daily helping of poke salad and two pipefuls of her special tobaccy." Speaking of which, happy birthday to yoooooooouuuuuu... (that was me, singing)
