First thing this morning...I told my husband, "Happy 107 month anniversary!"
If you recall, he said it first to me last month. Not that I'm keeping track or anything. I'm not the kind of person who counts down days to anything... am I?
or am I?
I mean... September 7th...that's seven days until our son turns eight, a month until our 9-year anniversary...and 56 days until I'm due, which makes me 32 weeks along today.
Ok...well, maybe I do keep track of things a little. Heck, I am keeping track of my calories...Hmm...
Well, I was a very nice teacher today, Sarah, thank you very much. I was patient for the most part and gave our son a break when he complained of his hand being tired for writing for too long.
The last two weeks of house cleaning and organizing and "garage sale-ing" helped this first day of school to feel good. I'm glad for everyone that this is a short week. It helps us all to get our "school feet" a little wet and then next week we can all take the real plunge. Ha, Ha!!
I did great on my diet again. I enjoyed an 11 ounce honey crisp apple during my mid-morning break. Yes, that is a big apple. If only I could photograph it for you. And, it's so crisp and juicy that I feel like my mouth can barely contain all its juicy goodness.
Just to give you an idea of how much I like these apples... I was figuring up in my head exactly how many pounds of apples our family (mostly children) will go through in a week. Now with me eating them too...I figured at least ten pounds of apples a week. I was thinking about going to the local honey crisp apple growers in our area and seeing if they would give me a deal if I bought a year's worth of apples...because let's be real...if you don't buy them fresh, you are getting apples from Washington state that could very well be a year old anyway. Why not buy these juicy honey crisp apples?
But anyway, I figured ten pounds times 52 weeks...is like 500 pounds of apples. These growers want to charge like $10 for five pounds of apples, which would total...100 times $10 or $1,000.
Maybe they'd let them go for a third of that cost...you know if I buy bulk.
Then, the only problem becomes...where do I store them?
But wouldn't that be so awesome? Honey crisp apples...at any time... for a year?
I could enjoy the taste of fall year-round! (Did you notice my fall colors?)
Well, I think I've jabbered on long enough here. I did make it to the gym tonight and got in a leg work-out. The only comments I got were from our 15-year-old Darling Rose who told me that I was "packing it well"...( a little humorous reminder from the last person who said that to me)....
Oh, and she also said that it looked like I had stuffed a big basketball up my shirt.
Yes, you can laugh because I actually have to agree with her.
Have a good one, y'all!!
