Worried

I'm a little worried.  80 pounds of blueberries seems like a lot.  It is a lot, but let's do some math.  I get 4 breakfast smoothies from each bag.  That's only 320 smoothies.  It doesn't quite cover a year.  And David drinks them on weekends.  He's decided that they taste better than his Atkins Shakes  (shocking, I know).  So if you subtract his 104 smoothies, that leaves 216 smoothies.  I need breakfast 365 days, unless it's a leap year, which will leave me without breakfast for 149 days.  I know, I know,  I could have something else for breakfast like oatmeal with blueberries (wait, I'd be out of berries).  I could make another flavor of smoothie.  I might  be somewhere else for breakfast.  I could put David back on Atkins although that seems cruel.  And what if I wanted to make cobbler or muffins or something?  What if David worked from home and wanted more than his allotted 2 per week?  That 149 number is making me nervous.  I could still get more berries.  It's not too late.  I'd need at least 37.25 bags (149 days /4).   Ummmm that's another 40 pounds of blueberries.  Can that be right???   Perhaps I've made an error in my calculations.  Fortunately, I live with an accountant.  He can sort it out.

When Connie said she wanted more blueberries, I immediately told her to get me another 10 pounds of them! I was a wimp, got ONLY 40 pounds the first time.

The other detail that Connie left out is that when she and I went to get the blueberries last week, the total count for us and our friends was 350 lbs! That's a LOT of berries!

We only got 20 lbs, Connie was right should have gotten more. I am worried we will be out by Thanksgiving!
