Now we're cookin'

After writing yesterday, I realized that I really have been passing many ‘milestones’ lately. In addition to my month-long hiatus from the bathroom floor, I also had two other pretty significant accomplishments … visiting the meat counter at the grocery store and cooking my first meal in months! I was pleasantly surprised during one of my first (and rare) solo trips to HEB this week when I courageously ventured down the raw meat aisle. Not only was I able to make several selections, I actually did it with my eyes open and without reaching for my ever-present sick bag. It’s true that all of this adventure wore me out and I felt pretty sick when I got home. I took a nap, however, and actually ended up feeling well enough to attempt cooking. Real cooking. Not microwaving. Not pouring a bowl of cereal. But, real cooking. I actually used multiple ingredients, seasonings, and meat! This may not sound like much to anyone else, but it’s a huge achievement for me. And, Brian was pretty happy about it too! He’s spent months surviving on fast food and peanut butter sandwiches. I can’t say this will be an every-day occurrence as I was definitely exhausted afterwards. However, we may have just turned a new page in this pregnancy.


  1. Congrats on your HEB & cooking adventure. And woo-hoo... you only have 100 days to go!

  2. Kudos to you-I haven't cooked really cooked in...well I can't say I can even remember the last time I cooked :)
