We had leftovers again for dinner and I think we're finally getting tired of them. Because Husband isn't here to eat everything. Normally, we make twice as much and have fewer leftovers.

So thank you, crazy Manatee rider, for making me grateful that I only appreciate wild animals; I have no desire at all ever to ride one.
