1. I can’t be trusted around sweets. I just can’t. And if I eat one, I eat 10. My usual plan for dealing with that is not having any that *I* really like in the house. Unfortunately, right now I have some awesome cookies my mom made and some chocolates a friend made. I ate so many last night I’m not even hungry for breakfast. Sigh.
2. We get our produce from a delivery service called Washington’s Green Grocer. They provide organic produce at a reasonable price. Each week (or every other week) you get a delivery of whatever their basket is that week. Unlike a CSA though, you can go online and switch stuff. For the third delivery in a row, I forgot to change things. I now have enough turnips to feed an entire third world country. Anyone got an awesome turnip recipe I can feed my ILs on Christmas?
3. Yesterday, Jones’ grade had a Greek Festival. All the kids dressed up for the event and parents came in and helped (I got to work the standing long jump.) I was one of only two parents who dressed up. I got lots of comments about that, but seriously, my kid asked me to, so why wouldn’t I? I’m 40 years old and a runner (and we all know runners wear goofy stuff and have lots of embarrassing moments)- why should I care if I look goofy? It did seem weird to wear a toga and not do inverted keg hits, but, ahem, I’m pretty sure the principal would have frowned on that. ;o)
We have a pretty laid back holiday around here (already did Christmas with my parents and won’t do Christmas with Beer Geek’s family until the 26th), so I’ll be around, but Merry Christmas to everyone who won’t be online for a while.
