Did I Really Just Do That? You Wouldn’t Believe It!
Today was a busy day – work was a normal day but afterwards – “normal” (at least our normal) but so incredibly busy.
First it was a race after work to get to CVS to pick up prescriptions for everyone in the house. Then I needed to run to my cousin’s photography studio to give her the gift basket for her event this weekend. THEN run to pick up Sephora (then Anthony and Bob) to run to the thrift store to find a “costume” for her in the play. Of course I waited until the last minute – that is just how it is for us.
Good news – found an outfit!
Three days ago I purchased a large amount of fruit so I could do some juicing and haven’t had a chance to do it. I was determined to do it tonight. So we take out all of our fruit.
Some of you may notice right away the flaw in my process but for some reason I had a brain freeze and didn’t recognize it until it was too late…
Fruit for the juicing included: apples, oranges, kiwi, pears and spinach. Oh yeah – this was a bright green drink. It took more than an hour to prep the fruit, juice, clean up the mess and put the fresh juice in canning jars. Since I am deathly allergic to kiwi I put rubber gloves on, the kids were the only ones to handle the fruit and put it in the machine and we went about our business. As soon as we mixed up the batch and placed in jars we excitedly started drinking some and boy was it delicious.
Did you just read what you thought you read? – WE STARTED DRINKING SOME!!!!
Yup – I carry an epipen for my allergy to kiwi and here I am gulping down a glass of this luscious beautiful green drink… How I lost sight of that is beyond me.
I survived drinking the drink but of course will not drink anymore. All that work and I can’t even drink it. I am so bummed…
