My husband has decided recently that he is going to kick it up a notch when it comes to his midlife exercise and health routine. That's good. I commend him for this, and I must say that he's been looking pretty fine late sans shirt lately!
Part of his efforts have involved monthly trips to the vitamin store to purchase whey protein (gross), which he drinks in conjunction with his workouts, and combo packs of vitamins. Some people may be familiar with these combo packs. They include all kinds of goodies - fish oil, multivitamins, tea tree something or other. While he was there, I also asked him to pick up a bottle of vitamin D, since I've been reading up on its benefits regarding cancer prevention.
His daily combo pack also includes two multivitamins which he feels is a bit of overkill, so he's been giving me his extra vitamin each morning. He leaves them on the counter in the kitchen or the bathroom for me to find them when I finally pry my eyes open with the help of contact lenses or coffee.
I have a confession. I've been having some trouble keeping up with this daily regimen.
This is the second time in less than three weeks in which little piles of the buggers have started to pile up. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. Everywhere I go, there they are. My husband keeps adding more every day. He keeps asking me about them!
I'm supposed to take them, especially the vitamin D, with food and I just don't always remember to do it. The last time this happened (last week), I ended up throwing the extras away. Some of them had been exposed to the inevitable water that splashes around the counter each day. Some were sitting on the microwave for a while and were looking a little moldy.
That was last week, and damn it, here I am again in the same predicament. What do I do with all of these extra vitamins? I'm never going to be able to catch up. I feel like a hoarder. Maybe I should slip them to the kids at the bus stop. Would that be bad? Is there a black market for vitamins? I hate to waste them. I do not have a solution to this problem.
