Doing It


I'm doing it! So far the day has gone great. We all slept in until 7:30am and then headed downstairs for breakfast together. Reade fell back asleep so Blake and I ate breakfast together and I cleaned up the kitchen. My friend stopped by, which allowed me to throw in a load of laundry and start dinner in my crock-pot. I told Andrew he will be eating out of a crock-pot for the next month or so until I get into a routine.

Tonight we are having Chicken, Bouillabaisse-Style (recipe found here). On the side I think I will serve potatoes au gratin from a box. I only treat myself to those naughty boxes every once and a while since they are so unhealthy. Andrew and I are going to try and eat healthier at least twice a week now. My midwife is a big fan of the Weston Price diet, but like any diet I don't think one way is the absolute best or right way. Giving up corn syrup will be the hardest thing for me. I love myself some gummy bears!

Blake just woke up so onto round two of the day. Enjoy the rain. It is a bummer we are housebound, but maybe that is good for me.

Good luck, Shannon!

I can send you some quick recipes that Patrick and I like to use. So that you don't have to substitute healthy for quick/easy to make :)

Sure! That would be great. By the way, that recipe wasn't the best. I wouldn't use it again.

Shannon, now is where the rubber meets the road. This is when the laundry piles up and dinners are not always on time. Go easy on yourself, the dust will be there tomorrow too.
