Day 154: Sunday, January 1, 2012 Happy 2012!!

 We rang in 2012 on Day One Hundred and Fifty-Four by celebrating at the Ps.

Day 155: Monday, January 2, 2012 It snowed…just a little, but it snowed!

One of the first snowfalls of the season was on Day One Hundred and Fifty-Five. It was kinda disappointing, but better than nothing!

Day 156: Tuesday, January 3, 2012 I made apple chips. disclaimer: I actually took this pic on Day 154, but it was at like 11:40 p.m. and the chips didn’t finish baking until Day 155

On Day One Hundred and Fifty-Six (actually started on fifty-five) I made apple chips. I’m sure they would have tasted good, but I had strep then and nothing tasted good. M ate all of them though!

Day 157: Wednesday, January 4, 2012 M & I were sick, so I made grilled cheese-the first meal we ate for two days

M & I decided that grilled cheese sounded good on Day One Hundred and Fifty-Seven. We hadn’t eaten much for a few days at this point.
