In LOVE... or is it Lust?

I recently became a Pampered Chef consultant and have fallen madly in love with their products and recipes. I love their Garden Veggie Pizza and my kids all eat at least 3 slices of it-- and it's laced with zucchini, tomatoes, mushrooms, and onions! Yesterday my new love arrived... my deep covered baker and my rice cooker... I've made bread, amazing chicken, and amazing pork tenderloin in the baker (in the microwave under 30 min for all but the bread!) and made amazing veggie rice pilaf, garlic parm mashed potatoes, and chocolate lava cake in the rice cooker (in the microwave under 10 min!!)... so needless to say I'm in LOVE!!!

B Garvin (6/17/2009 10:20:52 AM): you also spent 4014 minutes ON the phone that is the equivalent of 2.78 FULL 24 hour days honey in a month
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:21:16 AM): wow. it's like a full time job
B Garvin (6/17/2009 10:22:03 AM): yeah... something like that... just think how much more you could actually feel like you got done honey....

auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:26:46 AM): don't you have work to be doing? lol
B Garvin (6/17/2009 10:26:50 AM): honey if you figure just the average text took you 30 seconds you spent another 4.94 full 24 hour days last month texting honey.....
B Garvin (6/17/2009 10:27:25 AM): which means out of 30 days you spent 7.7 days on the phone texting or talking honey
B Garvin (6/17/2009 10:32:32 AM): honey all joking aside... doesn't that bug you a little that you spent that much time just talking or texting on your phone last month?
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:32:50 AM): ummm yes?
B Garvin (6/17/2009 10:33:24 AM): honey I am being serious... like you spent almost 8 full 24 hour days on your phone...
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:34:10 AM): that is a lot
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:34:17 AM): I'm a little shocked it was that much, actually
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:34:26 AM): but that also was me on hold trying to change utilities over too
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:34:27 AM): lol
B Garvin (6/17/2009 10:34:31 AM): ok sorry... didn't mean to say anything I was just trying to see if we could switch anywhere and there is no way....
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:34:47 AM): I wasn't getting upset
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:34:56 AM): I just said I'm surprised it was that much
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:35:39 AM): are you there?
B Garvin (6/17/2009 10:36:01 AM): I'm was a little shocked it was that much I knew yours was high.... but
B Garvin (6/17/2009 10:36:06 AM): it makes sense though too...
B Garvin (6/17/2009 10:36:29 AM): just in the last month how many more times have I said something about you texting or being on your phone all the time...
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:36:41 AM): ya, I really do need to cut back
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:36:43 AM): that's crazy
B Garvin (6/17/2009 10:37:29 AM): Thank you..... don' take this the wrong way honey but that is really kind of scary.... like addict scary baby....
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:37:39 AM): ya that is huh?
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:38:20 AM): BUT think of it this way... I'm sticking it to the man with the "all you can eat plan"
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:38:21 AM): lol
B Garvin (6/17/2009 10:38:35 AM): think about it this way it figures out to be 185 hours last month of total time on your phone texting or talking and that is only using an average of 30 seconds per text message....
B Garvin (6/17/2009 10:39:32 AM): honey that is only 15 hours short of a ten hour work day 5 days a week for a full month...
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:39:44 AM): ya that is crazy
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:39:51 AM): but you didn't even laugh at my comment
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:42:01 AM): ok, well I'm going to go finish the house
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:42:02 AM): I love you
auggies1181 (6/17/2009 10:42:11 AM): sorry if I upset you I will be better about texting/chatting
B Garvin (6/17/2009 10:42:19 AM): ok... I love you....
