After a good long rest, the next big project is the rest of the kitchen. I foresee a lot of jar scrubbing ahead of me again--hehe!
My big t-shirts (what I wear to bed) arrived yesterday. What a deal! No shipping, no tax, a t-shirt sale, plus 20% off one item. Dirt cheap! Hope they last me 8-9 years like the last ones have--hehe! Miss Karma went hiding, of course.
Never met a bag she didn't like? hehe!
Dagan and Leah came after work. I was rather immobile and in my robe. Dagan made chicken stir fry and after dinner Leah put together a meatloaf for me. (My goodbye-to-meats foods for the next few days--hehe!) I sent almost everything home with them except for some tuna, just in case I go thru terrible meat withdrawal. Forgot to send the rest of the hamburger and chicken from the freezer home with them--so I'll have to try to remember to have them take it with them after we go to the eyedoctor's on Saturday. :)
I'm getting all set. Am going to have an extra large grocery order in May, but that's okay. It's all good, right? :) May 3rd is when I get my check and order groceries, so that's my cut off day. Wish me luck! If I am feeling weak--I plan to watch Food, Inc around then so that should bolster my conviction for the shift.
I am a little less sore today. Be on R&R the rest of the week so I am in shape for the eyedoctor on Saturday. I'll need to wash clothes one day here. Or maybe I can spread out the loads on different days? Good idea.
Oh--Iggy--I misspelled kuzu and fixed it on that post--it wasn't kuru, sorry. It is a wild root starch. I bought several odd items over at this place in town called Tochi's that has all these natural and foreign foods you can't find in the grocery store. (Love that packed little store!) I was trying a lot of oriental cooking at the time. Going to get those cookbooks out again, too. That's why I needed to know what the heck I still had in the pantry--ROFL!
I am so pleased, tho, with how well I spread out the pantry project over the days with the 30 minute sessions (altho, I learned I should have quit before that last day or so and taken a break for a couple days--but better to know for next time, right?). And I still plan on being off the pain pills by the 3rd, too. All is going well. Soft gray rainy morning. I'm back on days. Life is good. And it will be even better after a couple of days R&R--ROFL!! Later...:):)
