How Much Could a Banana Cost? $10?

Since early December, meal planning has been a mix of Broken Telephone and Pin The Tail On The Donkey.

Mark without the inside scoop on pantry inventory, ingredient subtleties and brand preferences. Me without SMS or cell phone access.

That changed yesterday. I shopped, myself.

Vegetable selection was thrilling.

Chance encounters with neighbours, refreshing.

And dinner was delicious.

    Ha! And to think I was initially sceptical when you told me there’s an Arrested Development quote for every life situation. The banana one is so perfect! I’m so glad you can now be in and about instead of just out and about and are enjoying the simple routines of daily life that we all take for granted.

    It's crazy how much I miss that. The simple act of shopping. And my poor husband. He just hates the grocery store so much. He just keeps telling me that he can't wait till I'm better. My name is Sharon. I have been following your blog since shortly after I was diagnosed with breast cancer in December, 2009. You have been an inspriation to me. I had and still have so much fear and anxiety, but reading your blog every day has really helped me. Thank you so much. I will keep following as long as you keep posting. Take care.

  • I now believe there may be several AD quotes for each life situation — unlike real life, though, on the blog I'm forced to choose just one!

    I'm looking forward to getting back to one of my favourite routines, my weekly evening out with you. Starting tonight, with our delicious celebratory dinner!

    Thank you for everything you've done to help me along this healing journey, Jay. I'm hoping I never have a chance to repay you.

  • Pleased to meet you, Sharon. Thank you so much for sharing your experience and for letting me know that you're following and benefiting from ours. I wish you a swift, smooth and permanent recovery and for many years of good health and happiness to follow.

    Hi mom, I'm writing this from school again because I finished lunch early and felt like sending you a comment!

  • I love you, Bayla! Thanks for the note — and finishing your lunch!!


  • Jay

    Me too–can't wait for our dinner out and the many many more to come.

  • It's so great that you have your freedom back, now. It will be nice to see you bounding around our little village.

  • Thank you, my sweet. ilylc
