day 847 – secret stash

i think my mom’s addiction to avocado just got worse. i came home and my mom was eager to show me the four new packages of ripe and ready to eat avocado sitting on the counter. this is good news for me because i will never run out of avocados for my salad. feeling a little under the weather today, with my headache getting worse throughout the day on top of a sorry back from all that deadlifting yesterday. but toughed it out for yet another trip to the gym and also out to run some errands
