Has it only been 3 weeks? It seems like longer. Maybe it’s due to all these cold showers I have been taking. Can I just say, NOT SO FUN. And yet strangely invigorating? It’s kind of weird.

Right now I’m babysitting Ana and her BFF, which has been going great except that they keep trying to lock themselves in rooms. Ana figures out how to turn the lock on the knobs, and her friend is tall enough to actually open the doors. Deadly combination.

Currently they are making “lunch” by themselves in the play kitchen. There are no lockable doors nearby. (And there was much rejoicing.)

So my list update. It doesn’t look like I did anything but I for real did. Next week I’m going to tackle dinner made from spam. YOU GUYS. I found so many more than 30 recipes and I will post links to some of the most creative/disturbing ones.

People actually eat Spam. I’m not sure how I feel about knowing this.
