Actually, you're not late. It's today. We just celebrated yesterday to avoid L.A. traffic on a Friday. :mrgreen:

Yesterday I went to the research center, and I finally got placed in a high blood pressure study that I've been on a waiting list for since the beginning of this year. It will pay $2060, before taxes of course, two weeks after the end of the study, which is mid-November. I will miss the September Encounter at church (first Friday night of the month), as well as needing to re-arrange a few work days, and I'll miss church on the last Sunday of the month. Four times I will be wearing a portable blood pressure monitor for 30 hours, and have to stay at the research center in an upstairs room for four overnights; two of these will cause me to miss Encounter and church, as mentioned. That's still a lot of Christmas money! No, they can't rearrange the days to fit my schedule. That's the way research goes. So, since I don't know if I'll have internet access on the overnights, I might not be online as often. But I'll ask at next week's appointment.

That's too bad that you'll be missing out on some church events, DJ, but that's a nice cash bonus and a nice time of year to get it too.

My girls went to a friend's house to stain their deck and my 5 yo went to play with my friend's son...so it's pretty quiet around here with half my kids away for the day. I stopped at the store on the way home and grabbed a 40 lb. box of bananas for $10. I'll be doing lots of baking this week! :D

How many bananas are in 40 pounds? It seems like a lot. I pay like .50 cents a pound here so it sounds like a great deal. I even have a recipe (kind of) for you to try. Put bananas in freezer (peel them first! I learned that the hard way no pun intended but no that I see it, I realize I'm just full of wit.) It takes about three bananas a serving. Then put in a teaspoon of cocoa powder and blend them until it's softy and creamy. It tastes like ice cream but only has like 100 calories. Since I don't like chocolate, I used a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter and it was really good!

Congratulations on your EC, Allison!!! :superhappy

Shann, 40lbs. is one of those big banana boxes. I really don't know how many bananas that is. I guess 100-200? They're 90 cents a pound here (weaker dollar) so it is a good deal. I've heard that frozen bananas put through a blender is really yummy. Definitely on my to do list!

We're taking the kids to a hotel tonight to go swimming. I actually found a hotel with a room that sleeps 8 and they actually have free breakfast too. I'm pretty excited. :D

Sounds like fun. One of my first jobs was helping the fruit man set up his stand at the flea market. I unloaded many banana boxes when I was 12.

*grins* Thanks! I'm just glad the judges seemed to enjoy it. I had so much fun writing this one. And I can totally see my older brother (who's middle name just happens to be Timothy...) and myself doing something like this, so inspiration was also taken from our relationship.

I've had an awful week full chest congestion. All the while a second windstorm caused power outage, in which I was transported to the hospital by ambulance. What a nightmare for me and my mom! I think we'll be getting a generator. I had my trache cultured and am on another round of antibiotics for this infection. Less congested today and I feel a little better.

Shann, if you need second eyes on that cookbook, I'm available. I helped mom with our local historical society cookbook.

Happy bday to Leah! Prayers for your job.
Yeah, it breaks my heart hearing about Andy and Amy being sick--any of my friends.
