My first appointment is tomorrow. I'm so nervous.
My pickles all turned out horrible (all 20+lb). I followed the recipe from the Ball book that I bought and they are all too salty and seem to be way over-processed.

DS has no school today so we are just lounging around the house.
I've been getting dizzy spells if I let the shower get as hot as I like. I need to turn the water temp down a bit in order to avoid it.

Oh, and I wish I could have a garden! I had one one summer and loved it (even though it wasn't very successful...) but since then we've lived in apartments without the yard space.

We have only been able to use them chopped up into things, like tuna and tartar sauce.
