This week is, um, the easiest to list.
Monday: Beef Stew in Crockpot
Tuesday: Hot Dogs, mac’n’cheese, carrots
Wednesday: CHINESE FOOD (annual tradition)
Thursday: Whatever Jim’s sister is serving
Friday: Whatever my sister is serving
Sunday: Not exactly sure….maybe leftovers from Christmas or soup or something.
About Wednesday’s: We’ve been married for 13 years, so this will be our 14th Christmas. We have yet to miss this tradition. Jim LOVES LOVES LOVES Chinese food. I can eat it about once every two or three months. I like it, but that’s about as far as it goes. It’s a fun thing to look forward to, especially now that Bennett likes it too (Laura and Catie are still holding out).
This morning Bennett and I made our way down to Dupont again. I cannot ever spell that the same way twice! DuPont, duPont, Dupont….they all work! Anyway, I want to say something about Dr. V. The man needs to work on his bedside manner! Especially as a pediatric surgeon who deals with HELLO….KIDS all day long! He’s ok with me, but rather stern with Bennett. It annoys me. Bennett is shy to begin with and I just want to slap this man and tell him to lighten up. Unfortunately, he’s not only the only reasonably close guy in this field, he’s also fairly well known and high up in this field of treating Hirschsprung’s Disease. Ugh. He just needs to lighten up!
