Ok, only in the sense that I actually got off of the couch today after ugly crying for two hours over the last post. I have a wonderful cry headache, but I’m carrying on anyway. My day was a bit better with my husband bringing me a gift that only those who really know me can truly appreciate. It is a “crash sack”. Basically, it is a sleeping bag that I can walk around in. I am that crazy person that is cold when everyone else is sweating. When we go camping, I am always geared up in ridiculous snow clothing for the campfire. We live in northern California, so it is not remotely appropriate to most given the weather. It made me smile, and shows what a wonderful man my husband is. It is his birthday tomorrow, but he is giving me presents. I don’t deserve him, but I sure am lucky he’s mine.
On to the dinner discussion… I know that since we are not doing paleo consistently, both my husband and I have had a resurgence of chronic headaches and also general grogginess throughout the day. Of course, I’m the only one who got fat (the wonderful little shit loves to work out). Anyway… for his birthday, my husband wanted lots of paleo food on a more consistent basis. To gear up for that, I tried out something new for dinner. The boy said it was a “10”, and the man said, “It’s a keeper.” I liked it as well even though there was a tiny part of my mind that kept thinking, “Damn this would be good with some cheese.” Even without the cheese, it was really amazing. I highly recommend giving it a try in your rotation.
