Today i spent a good amount of time on Jessica's Challenge...I went back to 1987 with the family's trip to Israel...this was fun and brought back so many wonderful memories!! I do want to say i did do a little housekeeping today (i hate it so much!!) My dh helped me clean out kitchen cabinets...you all know the one with all the plastic containers...yes, you do!! Half that plastic went in the trash!! and dated can goods (you all have them!) went in the trash too...gone are the days i cook for 4...has taken me almost 10 years to realize it so i don't need to have all these can goods...also, i was raised by parents who survived the depression...you know what that means...we had enough food in the cellar to feed the whole state of Vermont!! and then experiencing that winter storm-the big one in this Boston area...i started filling bookcases in the cellar with food i bought at Costco...scary!! I am changing my ways......
