Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was fabulous and if you’re a mother (to a human, dog, cat, ferret, whatever), I hope your Mother’s Day was amazing and filled with yummy food.
Mine was great – we tried another Mexican restaurant because we still haven’t found one we love here and then since it was my day, I forced all the boys to go to Petsmart with me to play with all the homeless cats.
I have to tell you about what happened to me on Saturday though!
I took a couple of the kids with me to check out the mall and then we went grocery shopping. Okay so $300 worth of groceries later, I try to go home.
And the guy at the gate – who I literally see everyday of my life and have Jeep conversations with everyday of my life – says, “I’m sorry ma’am, I can’t let you on post since you don’t have a decal.”
I was all, “I have temp tags. I live here. You know me.”
And then he just stared at me.
Eventually, one of the guys explained that the terror alert was raised and that even though I had my lease in the car showing that I live ON POST, he couldn’t let me through.
So me and the two kids and the car full of groceries and a lawn chair had to go to the visitor’s center and wait in line for two hours to get a temporary visitor’s pass. And then the jerk that did my pass only gave me a 3 day pass WITH THE WRONG TAG NUMBER ON IT. Which means I’m officially not going anywhere until we can get a real tag.
And who knows when that will.
Let me tell you, don’t ever buy a car right before you move out of state. We had a Colorado temp tag, now we have a Texas temp tag, and we still can’t get ahold of the person that needs to fax whatever document we need over to our new county.
Anyway, we did eventually made it home and salvaged what we could of the groceries. And then I had a monster glass of wine while my husband grilled this delicious meal for us. Pork chops on the grill are my favorite!
These are really quickly marinated (the pineapple and scallions are marinated too!) and then they grill up in about 10 minutes!
