I woke up this morning to a sad, sad sight:
Bella my beta fish died last night. :( I had a good cry in the kitchen, which was kind of unexpected. I know sheâ€™s â€˜just a fish,â€™ but I would talk to her and play tag with her (through the bowlâ€¦ she liked it).
Remember when I got her? I rescued her from Wal-Mart.
She was a good fish. :( Very pretty and fun. Bella liked to eat a LOT of food, too. I loved her enthusiasm for kibble.
Rest in the watery toilet grave, Bella. XOXO. Iâ€™m going to buy another beta fish when we get back from England (Bella was our third in this apartment).
Just regular banana oatmeal:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup vanilla rice milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 sliced banana
- Toppings: unsweet coconut, flax, and brown sugar
In the last month, I have managed to reduce our electricity/water bill by 1/4! Iâ€™m really proud of myself because normally Iâ€™m â€œbadâ€ about turning off the lights.
I think what made the biggest difference in our bill was turning off the air conditioning during the day. I would open the windows and let the cool air in. Obviously, you arenâ€™t totally turn the heat off up North because pipes will freeze, but itâ€™s amazing what a slight adjustment of your thermostat will do!
