Chocolate, not flowers

I don't like flowers. For mothers day, I kept getting flowers. For special events, flowers. I don't like flowers. I kill flowers (not on purpose). I'd rather have some Dove Chocolate. Cheaper, lasts longer, and so much more fulfilling. Just wanted to put that out there.


Eating has been pretty good. Still cutting back on the nutters! Hey Lizzie - you don't have a blog? You always have great ideas - I want to read more!

Today Nick and I went to watch some of my students in the Stotesbury Regatta on Kelly Drive. I was a little nervous of how Nick would be down there, but it was a nice day and what else did I have to do? Parking was going to be a bit crazy. I decided to get off in Manayunk. I just remembered it was 6 miles from the end of Manayunk to the finish of the Philly marathon, so I thought I could run from there to the races, but wow, I'm glad I didn't do that. It would have turned into a 10 mile BOB run. I ended up parking by the Falls Bridge and got a nice 3.5 to 4 mile run in - although it was like 75 degrees and so humid and gross. I didn't really watch the races, I mainly just chatted and saw some of my students.

This whole week has for some reason been rough. I miss teaching. This is such a huge adjustment and some days are just hard. I love my little guy, but I wish I could work part-time and still be teaching. I really really miss it!


  1. I'm sorry you had a rough week. Have you considered tutoring?

  2. No, I don't have a blog . . still deciding if I have enough interesting things going on to start one! :o) Don't if the food ideas are that good, but I am glad I can help. I just ate a nice yummy bowl of pasta with WF Red Pepper pasta sauce and mixed in some goat cheese. :)

    I'm sorry you're having a rough time adjusting to your new schedule. That's great that you went and saw your students. I think you might have already done this before, but maybe tutoring?

  3. I vote Lizzy should have a blog.

  4. ohhh i love flowers, they make the house feel so warm and friendly. I have managed to usually keep mine alive two weeks.. i can't say that for chocolate :)

  5. Sorry you've had a rough week. I'll take chocolate over flowers anyday :)
