What day is it today? Wednesday, right? I would normally be doing a pantry post today, but nothing really to share. I missed Positively Tuesday yesterday and Thrifty Thursday last week. Life feels a bit chaotic right now, but not in a bad way if that makes any sense. I'll just do a mish mash of lots of things and see how this post goes.
Last week, maybe Wednesday, DH took an odd step off a curb and was sort of limping that night. Thursday he rested with ice, but we still went to the dinner. Friday it was still hurting, but he powered through. By Saturday, he came home with a swollen foot. Why didn't he go to the doctor you might ask? Because he is a stubborn idiot when it comes to medical. He skipped the birthday get together and nursed it Saturday night. Both girls contacted me on Sunday when they were moving DD2 home and said he was miserable, but acting like he wasn't. He nursed it Sunday night, but still went to work-claiming it was better. It clearly is not. Finally, he made an appointment for tomorrow. I'll keep you posted.
The college kid is home. Here's a picture I took looking in from my front doorway to my back patio doors. Nice and tidy, spacious.
Here's what it looked like Monday morning.
My older daughter no doubt helped minimize some of her chaos, but this kid has issues! I've given her until next Saturday to go through every bin, toss, save, purge, or donate. Then she can start making a minimalist box for her fall semester, since she only is there four months, and figure out the minimum she should bring to Spain, January through May. She spent most of Monday crashed, but yesterday had a check in with her supervisor for her volunteer job-will be wrapping up that project by end of next week. They are more than happy to have her come back in the fall as she essentially jump started a whole part of the agencies strategic plan. She has an interview today for a fall on campus internship. Wish her luck. Next week she has an interview for one of several Americorp positions she directly applied to.

My girls and I feasted on a veggie and chickpea curry on Monday. I had made turkey bacon , lettuce, tomato and avocado sandwiches or wraps for lunch, and save bacon for DH and made him a couple wraps for his supper as he does not like the curry flavor. The Aldi Applewood brand turkey bacon is so good! It will be staple this summer for wraps, sandwiches, and salads. I boiled eggs this morning and will make egg salad-another staples for the summer either in sandwiches or over greens. I think the Brits call this Egg Mayo. Our local store for their anniversary sale had eggs, one dozen cartons, 2 for $1.00!
My son has his first or maybe has only vaccine today. He didn't know the type when the appointment was made. He was hoping to get Johnson and Johnson, as only one dose, but figured getting whatever could be scheduled made sense rather than waiting longer. Regardless of type, by end of May he'll be fully vaccinated, and even if Moderna, he'll be past the two week point by mid June.
I think this is what I have for today. I'll add to this tomorrow on Thrifty Thursday and Friday's W post. I need to get back to work and it will be a doozy of a day.
