Does anyone have a teaspoon of cumin I could borrow?

Funny Story

Last night I found cheap tickets back to the mainland on the 10th and the 13th. We are supposed to be out of our apartment by the 11th so I wanted to buy the earlier tickets but knew there was a chance Li had a final that day and wouldn't be able to go.

I didn't want to miss the deal so I considered buying the later tickets and finding somewhere else to stay for the other 2 days. But I didn't.

This morning Li found out that he did indeed have a final and couldn't leave the 10th. We sucked it up and went online to buy the tickets for the 13th. Now there were no cheap tickets until the 16th.

Instead of finding somewhere to stay for 2 days we now have 5.

Sleep over anyone?

Camping trip?

Still here.

Yeah, my parents are gone, so no more vacation. But it is Spring Break at the high school so no work for me for 2 weeks.

If you need me I'll be at home...reading the Book of Mormon. (I got about 130 pages behind while we were off partying.)

Good news....I passed the diabetes test!

No sugar tonight

I've been dreading today for about a month. This morning I was supposed to do a blood glucose test to find out if I have least I think that is what it's for.

I was supposed to fast 8 hours, drink this sugary orange drink and then get my blood drawn within an hour.

I had been hearing all these horror stories of how the hospital here is slow or registration took so long that people went over an hour and the test was no good. I did not want to be one of those stories. I borrowed a car so the bus couldn't make me late and made sure to drink my orange sugar right before I left. Registration did take forever and I was getting really nervous.

After he took my blood I noticed it had been 1/2 hour since I drank. I mentioned this to my doctor and she says that they aren't supposed to test early because there is a really good chance I will fail.

The next test is 3 hours instead of just one.

Can't wait.

A veggie tale

Well we survived our week as "parents." And many things were learned.

In other news....
I've been wanting to eat a zucchini since we had pizza with it a week or so ago. I determined to make pasta with zucchini and some other veggies. Then I went to the store to buy one.

I saw lots of different kinds of long, skinny, green vegetables....but none with signs above them that said zucchini. Feeling like a vegetable imbecile I paced up and down the rows of produce. Finally I decided to buy what I thought looked the most like a zucchini and enjoy it, whatever it turned out to be.

I eagerly opened my receipt to see what I had purchased and knew I was a moron. I was now the proud owner of an Italian squash.

I ran to google to find out what in the world that was and felt a little better/worse.

Turns out Italian squash and zucchini are the same thing.

Family Circus

Li and I have taken over a house of 6 kids from 4-17 for a week.

It's 8:15am on Day 1 and already I am so tired.

Glad our kids are coming one at a time.
