Kim, you have come back gangbusters. I appreciate all your informative posts. Thanks so much...Planning a little ahead and cooking ahead sounds great.
Helene - I never realized I could store oatmeal and just reheat. Don't know why I hadn't tried it before. DUH! I just bought some oatmeal and that's exactly what I will try because I get tired of cooking it every day, which I haven't done in a long time anyway. If I had a magic wish, I think I would seriously consider having a personal chef. Since that isn't reality, I am trying to care enough about me to take care of me. Gotta be honest, though...I'm having a ROUGH weekend. Hard to stop the tears.View Thread
Thanks, Kathy. Ya, I sound great, but I didn't do so well yesterday. Grrr. I have to take care of a couple of things today, and then I will make myself sit down and figure out a MENU. I used to cook all the time. I don't know what is the matter with me!!View Thread
Thank you, ROH. My current situation is a hodge-podge of stuff, not just the wrist. I was just telling a friend on Saturday that, yes, the injury has changed the way I do a lot of things, but I'm grateful to have 4 limbs. A lot of people in the world are worse off than I am. No, the wrist injury and loss of career were the icing on the cake of life, LOL.
Been on antidepressants for many years. Whenever I'm off I tend to nosedive, and that is why my doc is recommending that I get back on them so that I can do the things I know I need to do to have better health and life. It's a chemical imbalance. Insurance and finances are a mess, but I gotta bite the bullet anyway and pay for a doctor's visit to update my scripts. It is what it is. I will take care of things.
I know sunshine, exercise, good nutrition, faith in God, etc., all help with depression. Sometimes a person still needs a med, too. I am one of those people. Just have to get back to reality, ha.
Thanks for all the kinds words. Ya'll are doing great. I read most of the posts. Mostly I lurk. Can't really contribute these days. Ya'll are my encouragement. Knowing you don't give up helps me not to give up.
Grilling out sounds fabulous! Hope everyone stays well this week...Kim, I have a good friend in her 70s now with a lot of foot trouble, and she absolutely loves her Birks, has for years. Can't hardly pry them off her feet, LOL. I've never had a pair either.
Well, I can't brag about food lately, but I was finally able to mow the front yard today. A week of daily rain deluges made it pretty tough to mow today, especially since I didn't get it mowed the week before either, and I was out there nearly 2 hours, but I took a 15-min break in there, too. I still need to go back over it this week and mulch it down better. It's just an old push mower, but it's holding up, and it isn't self-propelled. I'm sitting here cooling off before I shower and need to figure out what to eat for supper. I only had a small bowl of cereal today. Been pushing the water, though. It always helps me last longer when I mow, of course, and I need it now, too, to help me recuperate. I have a wet towel around my neck, too.
Oh, you know what? I think I have corn on the cob in the fridge. I should start with that before they get old. Hmmm. I don't have the energy to break out my little grill, though. Will just nuke them.
You're welcome. And thanks. That's Jack. Yep, same here; I even rearranged my living room to accommodate a window seat for my cat! I have a cat and a dog and would do more if I could afford to. I prefer dogs, but George earns his keep by catching (and eating) crickets that, for some reason, like this house. And, in case you are wondering, no, they aren't friends; they tolerate each other, but the cat is a bit of a bully. I've thought of getting a kitten to torture him a little, but, uh, no. That would be torture for me!
Would love to hear more about your pets sometime...There are a lot of pet lovers here!View Thread
