Update. I am kind of cooking again. Kind of. Like I made dinner all last week. I made mostly go-tos. Chicken nachos, pizza, Paula's barbecue meatloaf and black bean burgers. I also made some delicious but ugly chocolate chip cookies.
I will admit I had the most amazing hamburger at Sonic last week. I know, Sonic. Good for nothing but their bevvies. But hunger overcame me like H1N1 and I needed to be cured. Who would have ever fathomed Sonic could woo me with their burgers? Even the tots were dreamy. Perfectly salted, not over cooked, fluffy in the middle. I couldn't shove them in my mouth fast enough. It was so unlady-like. "Mom, can I have another tot?" "Sorry son, they are all gone," as I hid them in my lap and snuck them into my mouth. I don't think I will ever get another burger at Sonic again so that I don't become disappointed, because I am certain that type of greatness won't happen again.
My husband and my brother in-law own an event catering company. They had a busy weekend catering three events in two days and that totaled to about 700 people. Not too bad. I dropped by two of the events and they looked lovely. My husband can decorate a buffet better than most women. But with all of that work, his foot pain was excruciating. Remember how he has bummer feet? Foot rubs were in order all weekend.
Speaking of those damned feet, today the boys go in to see a foot doctor to see if they are cursed as well. I am pretty sure they are okay, except for their flat feet. I have to make sure we are able to catch any problems early on so that we can prepare for the future. I am actually quite excited to show the doc Ethan's x-rays. He is going to be so baffled. I always get a kick out of showing those to doctors. They rarely have seen anything like them.
Van was sick last week. And it made me so proud. I knew I wasn't right. He was feverish, lethargic and really cuddly. So I took him to the doctor and I was right. Double ear infection and strep throat. The doctor commended me on my intuition and that really inflated my pride. Luckily, we caught his ailments before they got really bad and he is on the up swing. Although I do miss how cuddly he was.
Jack went on his first preschool field trip. He has the most awesome preschool teacher. Anyone who is looking for a preschool in the Payson/Salem area, I have your gal. She has her own bus and they went up into the mountains to look for "sleepy trees", also known as trees that are changing colors.
As for me, I am feeling slightly better. Well, maybe not. Honey Nut Cheerios help and so does drinking enough water. There are a lot of things that are one of the kind when pregnant. Never ending tiredness and crying. Both have no explanation. Both I excel in.
