One day and counting.
One more day before I can get off The Rock.
There isn't a vegetable to be found in this house.
I know this because I ransacked two refrigerators yesterday, and they are devoid of anything green (unless you count the mess on top of a really old container of sour cream) or antioxidant -containing.
And, sadly...this is what I fed my children last night.
Does basil count as a vegetable??
Pardon the green fingernails. He hadn't been bathed yet. (They were in the pool all day, and I do mean ALL day...like 9am to 6pm. So that may not be dirt, it could be algae.)
Warning: blood alert. Hide if you need to.
The Big Guy came home, saw him wiggling that tooth, and told him to just pull it out.
Yeah, right. Not this kid.
Two seconds later, he calmly announced that he pulled it out.
Just like that.
Oh, no. They aren't looking real straight, are they? I'm going to have to sell a kidney to put braces on these kids. And I don't know what I'm going to have to do to put them through college. I'm going to have to re-think my moral code.
And on another completely unrelated note, I found this huge bowl of crabmeat while rooting out the fridge yesterday.
Three pounds of crabmeat huge.
I have no recollection of picking this bowl of crabmeat.
I need to start sleeping more. I may be having blackouts. During the day.
Oops, I mean crocheting.
Not my crocheting, but, still, crocheting.
Awww, she made me a dishcloth! And it matches my kitchen!
And I won't let the kids use it because they will do something gross with it and ruin it and I'll be so mad. So I pretty much just dry my hands with it.
It works for me.
I'm so proud.
Yup, fresh mozzarella, home made bread and cherry peppers, fresh basil, and a dishcloth.
And three pounds of mystery crabmeat.
That's all it takes to make me happy.
Today is the last day of the contest. I will close the comments at 8pm, Eastern time.
Good Luck, everybody, and thanks for playing!
