School starts on Monday. In a way I really don't want it to, but at the same time I realize that staying at home too many days in a row sends me into a downward spiral of laziness and hermit-ness. So it's for the best, really. Because I'm food-oriented, I'm very focused on what I'm going to take for lunches. I made little pizza bites yesterday. They're basically wonton wrappers stuffed with sundried tomato pesto, light ricotta, shredded cheddar cheese and veggie pepperoni. I made them over the summer and they made awesome grab and go snacks for the freezer. I also made soup and cookies. Going back to school seems more tolerable when I know that I'm going to have good food to eat. 

Richard and I had a little pregnancy scare earlier this week. I started a new birth control and I was worried that it hadn't worked. I took a pregnancy test and everything! But it was negative. We took our nieces for the afternoon today, and even though we had a lot of fun together (I sewed circle skirts for both of them and Richard made bread with them) I'm so glad that my life isn't like that every day. At 28 I'm starting to wonder if I'm ever going to want to have kids.
