Not too many pics to post because a lot of what I’m making is for a book review, so you can be dazzled by those later 🙂
Aside from some of the new fun eats, I have also had other grub too. Tomato/cream cheese toast seems to be the top of my happy list still, and I’ve had some variation every day since NS introduced me to this culinary delight a week ago.
Also salads, baked spuds, smoothies, and juice. You know…the usual.
I went to the gym yesterday and it absolutely reinforced how much I hate the gym. What I really wanted to do was go to a yoga class, but couldn’t find a class that was suitable for my schedule. There were also no gym classes (like spin or zumba) going on at the gym – which is one of the rare occasions I go.
Anyway, I did use a spin bike that has a monitor mounted to it and you can take a virtual class. While I enjoyed the spin part, the program had audio issues – where the Bollywood-esqe music way overpowered the instruction. It made it a bit difficult to follow. After that, I hopped on the elliptical. Again, not my fav thing, but I wanted to workout!
I must admit that the past two days have been frustrating. Not going into too much detail other than to say rude difficult people suck.
I have, however, learned an interesting thing about children. My children. Or at least one of my children. M – is bilingual. You may wonder how, with him being 17, I didn’t know that. It’s because I just found out last night….
So M is away being a junior counselor at camp. I send him emails everyday, detailing the adventures of the family he’s left behind this summer. Well, he finally replied to me yesterday! While out enjoying some MUCH needed “off” time with D last night to catch the last part of the USA v. Belgium game and have a beer, we were chatting (after the game, of course) and I read him the email our son wrote to me. In that email, M mentioned that he also emailed D with a list of things he’d like us to send him in a care package.
Then D read me M’s email to him. And we both started laughing our butts off. You see, in M’s email to me, he’s very sweet and respectful…and short and to the point. In M’s email to my husband, however, he “speaks” totally different. So when we get home from our evening out, we ask our daughters (19 and 10) if they speak differently to us. R said no…A said “absolutely”. So there ya have it. 2/3’s of children are bilingual.
Allow me to prove it….these are the actual emails from M.
Hey mom! It’s great here and I have some fantastic news.
and finally something important to human survival:
