This Monday, we've arrived in the Land of Plenty.  That is, the last week of April is the Land of Plenty-To-Do.  Between my final week of teaching (which includes supervising frantic students) and helping to transition my new son into the home, I'm going to take a bit of a break from blogging -- I should be back in the e-saddle by Friday.

Even if we're not living in Land of Milk and Honey, that's what we spent our grocery money on this past week.  We bought five pounds of honey, plus yogurt and milk and cottage cheese and more milk (plus some coffee, soup cups, spices, and etc).  The weekly total was $79.  This total doesn't reflect a bit of scrounged food (2 leftover pizzas, rescued from a large event with more food than party goers).  Waste not, want not.
Weekly spending each week for the past 8 weeks.
This brings the average weekly spending over the past 8 weeks to $153/week.
Average spending since early March.
Now, 153 is a triangular number.  To wit, this is what $153 would look like, if you arranged it in aesthetically pleasing rows:
$153, arranged triangularly.
Count 'em, if you don't trust me.  17 rows.  One more dollar in each row than in the row before.  Not particularly useful, but very pretty.  Amusing, in a geeky sort of way.

I'll be back April 27.
