Ugh.  I have been hit-big time.

I tried to convince myself this was a bad allergy attack, but no-my body decided I didn’t suffer nearly enough with that virus that started on my birthday and lasted nearly a month.

The worst part-my week is jam-packed with deadlines, a party and a weekend in Arizona for my grandkids birthday.

Getting sick was not only NOT in my plans-but it’s darn inconvenient.

I’ve mentioned how my husband is not into cooking.  As predicted-first words were:  I guess I’ll take out steak for dinner.

To which I crankily grunted-oh no you won’t.  I did manage to somehow get dinner on the table Friday night.  Don’t ask what it was, I was so sick I can’t remember.  Saturday, hubby did take out some chicken sausage.  Then he was going to grill it and add it to some ramen soup.

Oh dear-again, I suggested something less salty.  He wound up going to El Pollo Loco with a coupon. This particular unit never gets anything done very well-chicken looked more the size of a pheasant and it was so over-cooked I wound up not eating it and it was scrapping my already sore throat.  The steamed veggies were mush.


Sunday-I told him to grill the sausages and I’d instruct him on what to do with the butternut squash.  He wasn’t happy, but he realized there was no wiggle room on this.  I was happy to stop there, but he added the rice from the tragic chicken dinner to his plate.

Today-I’ve been up since before the sun came up to do an interview.  We’ve got a party Thursday night and we‘re flying out Friday night.  

Will anything decent get on the table in my present condition and workload.  My guess is “of course“, I’m thinking homemade waffles tonight with some caramelized apples.  Warm, homey and comforting.

Hope your week will also use these adjectives.

Love it

    • did all the homemade and medical things possible Eva.  I’m hoping that bottle of doxy the dr insists I keep on hand start to help.  going to the phys med doc tomorrow about hip and shoulder-maybe he’ll be nice and at least look at all the orifices in my head.
