Today I took advantage of medical services and healthy food being offered at a health and wellness event. I turned one $2.35 "round trip" bus ticket into a blood pressure/glucose check, one pound each of pinto beans, white rice and whole wheat pasta, a twenty-eight ounce can of spaghetti sauce, two grape juice boxes, four large sweet potatoes, eight apples, eight plums and three bunches of carrots. I didn't count on Belle waking up with a runny nose, me tearing a hole in the back of my heel when the door hit me after I made change for the bus and a pouring rain storm once we arrived. I half wondered if it was even worth the trip until I discovered at home the pasta is the very pasta I currently like. Nicer weather would have been much appreciated still, especially since I'd been caught in flip flops and short sleeves during a storm. I also would have loved to finally try a bakery in the area if we'd had time.
