Hello, family! It’s been far too long since I’ve posted here. I’m still active on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, but my official blog has been about empty.
Here’s a short update:
- I’m a puppy grandma (happy birthday, boy!)
- I’m recovering from a series of three steroid injections and one oral steroid pack) because my spine decided my legs and hips shouldn’t work correctly
- I’ve been up, down, and all-around these last months and think am coming out of that cycle
Getting back on my feet has been my main goal lately, but making sure my nutrition game is on point is up there, too. I’ve been unable to cook for a couple of months now and proved to myself yesterday that short cooking sessions won’t knock me out or lead to spasms. Thanks to Instant Pot, I will have on-plan food that has flavor.
The main reason I popped on is to tell you to hang tight. It may be annoying and a little rocky at first, but this current normal is not the end of everything. It may take a few weeks to a few months, but we are resilient. We will get through this pandemic by washing our hands and not being dicks. Don’t buy more toilet paper or cleaning supplies than you need. Don’t grab all the bread and nut butter. Remember that we are all facing the same shortages, reduced shopping hours, and uncertainty. We will heal together. We will find or way together. Your neighbor is not your enemy – fear is.
For the time being, I’ll share my thoughts, menus, and whatever random idea of entertainment that comes to mind. I have a few book reviews to share, too. I’ll stop treating my blog as an afterthought for those of you here to see what’s happening in my corner of the spoonie world. Until then, be good to yourselves.
