I thought I would share a few of the many things I learned this week.
1. I cannot be trusted with leftover chocolate that did not fit into the molds needed to make chocolate pieces for my son's chess club end of the year party. Any melted chocolate left in the bowl after the mold is in the fridge will not be there in 5 minutes.
2. I cannot be trusted with any broken chocolate chess pieces. In theory these could all be re-melted and used again to make more chess pieces. But that theory has been proven wrong.
3. I learned how to do a two-foot turn while ice skating.
4. I learned that I cannot do a single-foot turn while ice skating without my butt hitting the ice.
5. I learned that new ice skates will cause blisters.
6. If you want to reserve a vacation house at a Washington state park, you need at least one year's notice. Or you can hire a hit-man so that one of the reservations will be cancelled. (I'm from New Jersey, so it's always an option.)
7. Kids will complain if you make reservations for a vacation house and the vacation isn't happening within the next 24 hours.
8. The easy-open wrappers on Kraft Bagelfuls aren't so easy to open.
9. Ketchup counts as a serving of fruit.
10. My kids eat a lot of fruit.
