september twenty-one

Getting Sean to daycare today was a challenge. It's almost the end of the month of September and Sean decided that he wanted to wear his sandals without socks to school today. Honestly, some battles are not worth fighting, and I let him win this one. I did however pack his sneakers & socks and put them in his cubby when we got to school. This way, if his teachers needed him to have them, they were there for him.

After dropping the kids off at daycare I went to go meet Kadi for lunch and some knitting at one of the Java U's in the city. I had a fabulous salad for lunch. I worked more on Sean's daycare blanket as we chatted & caught up.

On my way home I ran some errands, picking up groceries for dinner. I enjoy fresh fish over frozen, so I made sure to pick up some fresh fish for dinner tonight. It's so much better fresh. Some usually ends up in our freezer anyhow, as sometimes there's more in a package than we end up baking for supper. Usually it sits in the freezer until it gets freezer burn, and then unfortunately it goes into the garbage. I hate wasting food. I am going to try to be better and not do this anymore.

Jamie had hockey tonight, so I chilled on the couch, worked more on Sean's daycare blanket and watched the 2 hour season premiere of House. Oh was it good! I won't spoil it in case you haven't watched it yet - but I do have to say that it was a fabulous episode. I can't wait for next week. I also watched tonight's A&E episode of Hoarders (which made me want to throw out more things) and I watched some Law & Order Criminal Intent as well. Catch up tv night on the couch with my crochet project. I like!

Love the blanket! I have been teaching myself to crochet too, but I am not getting it very well. My gram is a great crocheter so I think I will have her help me since I think it is easier to make blankets that way than knitting.

I agree that fresh fish is always better then frozen. Usually I have to stick with frozen as I don't want to drive the 40 mile round trip to get decent fresh. Thats what I get for living remotely I guess. And I suppose I could fish in our lake but I'd be really hesitant about that. Yuck.

i agree some battles are not worth fighting. i hate wasting food too! right before we moved, i stopped going to the grocery store cos i wanted us to eat as much of what we had in the freezer so we wouldn't have to throw it out!

I do the EXACT same thing with food in the freezer. I stick it in there, and the only time it comes out is 8 months later when it's shriveled and white. Eeew!
