I missed a week. Sometimes, there is just too much in life and the words won't come. Even if the words are a list of meals. Sometimes, plans change to accomdate life. Last week was one of those weeks. Among Dr's appointments, happy moments, sad moments, a lot of time with family, a funeral and a welcoming of my future son, there just wasn't enough time for me to sit down and form the words of a post.
My mind is filled with a million new thoughts and directions and projects and I'm so far behind in projects already started. I have recipes to post and not enough time to post. Pregnancy induced carpal tunnel is keeping me from spending too much time on a computer at night and my swelling feet are keeping me propped in uncomfortable positions on the sofa. Lack of sleep is diminishing me ability to function. Yet, the time is passing by too quickly! I'm rushing head first into birthing this child and there is still so much to do to prepare for his arrival including trying to fix some meals to freeze so I don't have to cook right after he is born! When am I going to find the patience, time and the strength? I will. I still have bursts of energy that I take full advantage of and overwork myself. Plus being slightly OCD and overly organized, my routines such as meal planning and cleaning patterns keep me calm and rational so I can't stop doing it for too long without going crazy anyway. Lucky you.
I have had one request recently and that is to start including prices and budget information into my meal plans/recipes. I am going to slowly start incorporating that info into my work but I haven't quite figured out the best way to do that so bare with me as my format may change a bit.
