Do you have a green spoon??

I know it has been forever since I have posted and I really don't have any excuse except that I am in the middle of student teaching and my son is getting ready to go on an LDS mission among Thanksgiving going to be here, graduating from school and many other things. I am truly sorry and I have missed all of my blogging friends and family.

How many of you have a green spoon??? This story will be a story that is handed down in our family from generation to generation I am sure of it. Ever since I can remember, my husband and I have had a green tablespoon to measure ingredients with. Through the years when he was baking or helping me make something I would just tell him I need one of the green spoon because it was just easier that way. We didn't ever call it a tablespoon, or at least he didn't.

Well, something awful happened about a month ago. Our green spoon was eaten up in the garbage disposal. I thought my husband was going to want a funeral for it. He actually has put it in a drawer in my curio cabinet for safe keeping even though it can not be used any more because it is so beat up. Now when we are making something and I have to tell him a tablespoon he says " Is that the green spoon?" " I guess we can't make it because we don't have a green spoon. This is still continuing to go on, it has been quite a joke in our family.

So, if you see a green tablespoon any where, let me know I would love to get another one just for him. Do you have any stories that have become legends in your family??? I would love to hear.

I have been doing weight watchers. We have two small glass cups that each hold exactly 8 ounces. I have been really realying on these because I have noticed that I drink a lot of my caleries in milk. So measuring out how much I drink and keeping track of it has really helped. If those two glasses ever dissapeared, I don't know what I would do.

Awww, sweet story. I love objects that have a past. Even if you find a new green spoon, you will still love the old one.
