Watermelon

I am addicted to watermelon lately. I eat it almost everyday. LOVE IT!! I love the texture and the flavor...it's so yummy. My kids are making fun of me, along with Aaron. I told Zack that we should grow some of our own next year and he told me we'd have to grow a whole field of them for me to get my fill. I guess watermelon is taking the place of chocolate in my diet. I miss chocolate, but watermelon is a good substitute. I, of coarse, have a funny story about watermelon. Years ago when Josh was a baby my friend Alison and I were shopping with our little ones (her Kyle is 5 weeks younger than Josh). We were getting some things at the grocery store and while at the check out one, or both of our boys were crying hysterically and when we looked at the man behind us he was holding a watermelon in his arms and frantically rocking it and patting it...I suppose he was a dad and hearing our babies crying put him into auto mode with his watermelon...ha ha..it was quite funny. Maybe they ought to give those teenagers watermelons to lug around instead of eggs for pretend babies......hmmmm

I am proud of you that you are eating so well. I need to start eating better, and sooner than later. I was wondering exactly what kind of diet thing you are doing. Have you ever seen the English show on BBC, I think it's called you are what you eat or something like that. Your sweet potato and black bean burrito reminded me of stuff they have to eat on that show. Funny story about the watermelon, ha ha ha.

I suppose watermelon is an excellent substitute for chocolate, although I wouldn't have much luck. Good for you!
