I can’t believe my step-son is 21 already! For new readers who may not know, I met my step-son when he was 10 years old. It had to be so strange for him to see his Dad marrying someone – he was the best man in our wedding! Let’s just take a walk down memory lane, shall we?
One of the first things I learned about Joe was that he loved frogs, toads, geckos – he loved them all! I’ll now give you two of my favorite pictures of Joe as a kid:
Here’s a picture of Joe when he started playing football – 6th grade – isn’t he so cute??!!
I have not done a full grocery shop this week because I think we need to eat up what we have in the house first. So the eats this week will most likely be a bit on the boring side!
Breakfast: Steak sammie – 2 oz. vienna bread, 1.5 ounce leftover steak, 2 eggs scrambled and 1.5 ounces of Swiss cheese.
It had rained earlier in the morning, but when I looked outside my office window it looked clear enough to walk. I changed my clothes, got 2o minutes into my walk when I heard something. Thunder! I kept going until it started raining like cats and dogs – luckily the path I take has big trees for cover – I got the most soak walking the last 200 feet to my building.
Lunch was a lemon pepper sammie on a light English muffin and black bean soup on the side.
And dinner was leftover pasta with my pasta bolognese that I defrosted – tasted just as good as the day I made it!
Don’t worry Joe – we’ll toast to you tonight! 😀
And thanks for Tony for fixing Hannah’s car – Hannah freaked out the other night when she came home to steam and smoke coming from her car – turns out it was just a radiator hose that needed to be replaced. I couldn’t even identify a radiator hose! 😀 Thanks sweets!
What did you do on your 21st birthday? I was trying to think what my sister and I did, but having worked in bars since we were 18, I don’t think it was that big of a deal – do you remember Jenn?
