Oh, what week–and the menu plan

We got no blizzard.  Am I disappointed?  Slightly.   I am very good at, what I call, cocooning.  I like snow days and cuddling under quilts on the couch and topping off the day with big steaming bowls of soup.  Of course, I can do that on an ordinary day, but it fees better on  day when you just can’t leave the house.  I might be a little crazy, but I’m okay with that.

We had a week.  You know the kind.  You don’t have to label it, you justhave  to look at someone and say “It was a week” and they know what you mean.  Big Daddy has been working 80 hour weeks  Yes, he does this out of our home, but that means he’s busy.  Beyond busy.  Baby Bee had an out patient procedure.  I had an out patient procedure.  Three of us got the stomach flu.  In one calendar week.  It was a week.

What a week.

The Princess and I haven’t had the flu yet and I think we’re both a little nervous about whether or not we will fall prey.  The consolation is that it’s fast moving.  I will be talking a bit about my procedure because it might be helpful to those of you drawing closer to middle age.

    Wow…sounds like you definitely did have a week! I love being wrapped up in a blanket with a hot bowl of soup on a cold day…so comforting and great recipe/menu choices also
