Weekly Notes:

We started off this week a bit expensively, with stops at the local orchard (apples, cider, doughnuts) and Panera Bread (bagels, bread, drinks) during our 2 1/2 hour drive to our friends’ house in MA.  It was a last-minute decision to go, and as a result, we hadn’t planned anything to take with us for the party.

I’m the only one in our household who enjoys fish and seafood (DD calls it “underwater food”), which means we don’t have it at home very often.  The rule at our house is you have to eat two bites of everything that is served, and both DH and DD did their part.

Our household consists of two adults and one young child.
