Could it be? Is my "honeymoon" over so quickly? My mom is not coming to help out with the laundry anymore, and Doug went back to work Monday. I guess my recovery is officially over. I wish my body felt like it was. While I still have a few meals in the freezer, I don't have enough to get through the next week, so I'm going to have to go to the grocery store and actually stand in the kitchen and cook. I can't tell you how nice it was to pull a meal from the freezer each day during my recovery. And while I've never been one to cook ahead and freeze food for everyday living, I might just start doing a little more of that. It was a great relief to know that dinner was all but hot, and I can imagine on a busy day it would be a pleasant thought.
This week my brother and his family are coming in to town from Maryland. I love seeing my brother and his wife and my beautiful niece and nephew (our Godchildren), but I'm not sure I'm up to much entertaining yet. So, what do you do? Yep. Order pizza. That's what we'll do Saturday and then I'll hopefully be up to entertaining -- KISS -- later in the week (that's me that's stupid, not you).
