Photo #273: Full on Sushi

Went with my family to Sushi Kan today for all you can eat (AYCE) sushi – mmm. I have missed this – to pay $20/person and eat whatever my heart desires! Also my first time seeing fruit sushi, which was interesting. Apparently a nice palate cleanser? This one had mango, banana and canned peach.

Look what I found. When my siblings and I were very young (grade school), my mom gave the three of us each our own sticker book. She had this container full of different stickers and whenever we were good (behaved well, received good scores, did the chores, etc) she would reward us with a sticker that we’d stick in our book. Growing up was so much simpler then! We worked to earn stickers and that alone made us happy and proud. Sure we were also rewarded with TV time, computer time, sweets, etc., but I still can’t imagine growing up and wanting a cell phone, laptop, mp3 player, tablet, etc. Oh, times have changed. There are still many stickers left, so into the donations box they go! Hopefully they will make another kid happy 🙂

My dad was a huge fan of movies and he left hundreds of DVDs that were burnt over the years which we never had the heart to throw away. I guess that’s why renovations are a good thing, they force you to get rid of stuff you no longer need! The first question was, “Are CDs and DVDs recyclable?” No. Apparently not. Naturally, the next question was, “How can we properly dispose of them?” With a little bit of research, we found out that Best Buy’s Small Electronics Recycling program accepts (free of charge) unlimited discs to dispose of them for you. Yay! Last question, “Do I want anyone checking the content of my discs?” Easy answer: No!
