I am feeling free today. I have been cutting down the time I wear my splint for my hand. And with some pain I managed to clean the house and cook some things. AHHHH THAT FEELS LIKE ME! Although I loved and appreciated my hubby doing the cooking and cleaning, there is nothing like the feeling of doing it yourself, to your satisfaction. That has always been the things that make me feel like there is order in my world. So glad I can do them again. I am still taking care of my hand and still have pain but it is getting better. I am not over doing it.
I have breakfast in the oven...some berries. Yum. I strayed a bit last night with my hubby. Pretzel sticks. Not horrible but not on the foods I am allowed. I took the guilt and told myself...ya know what you did something you were not supposed to but it will be ok, you will pick yourself up and get back on board. I am ok with what I did, it wasn't a ton and could have been the Christmas Crack I have in the freezer that keeps calling my name. I made a big batch of that over the holiday. Or poor man's toffee...either name it is so sweet and amazing...ugh ok! Hands off that! Other than the pretzel slip I have been doing really really well. I haven't been to the store...yet. I am trying to be creative and use the stuff we have. Things have been going ok with that. Sometimes I don't eat it and make something that fits in my diet depending on the numbers for that day. Soups are always great for using up things of this and that.
Wow this weekend really feels freeing. No plans, no splint, hubby at home this weekend (he's on call for Valentine's day this year) and my oldest son took my youngest son to see Kung Fu Panda last night so hubby and I had time just us. That rarely happens. Maybe I will start a book! I am not one to read a whole lot but enjoy a book I can relate to. My son got his chores and homework done last night. He pulled up his math and social studies grade up but still has an F in Science and English. I am irritated with that english teacher too. I am keeping calm though and dealing with one issue at a time with him. He will get there, I know he will. This has been the hardest year yet for him. Transitioning to middle school and learning to juggle everything...that has really been tough for him. I just keep telling him to give it his all.
Happy Weekend All!
