Gratitude Project 2006

Day 10 and 11 combined.

Yesterday I was grateful for a reliable recipe. You know how you have at least one dinner you can throw together that everyone always likes? I made that yesterday for the horde of out-of-towners who came to my house last evening. (Ok, ten is not a horde to normal people, but for us, it is.) Southern chicken upside-down dinner, fresh broccoli on the side. Yum, yum! Better Crocker cookbook circa 1955 before the newer one came out with lower fat options and a greatly diminished cookie section. Five pounds of chicken breast cooked and cut up went into a quadrupled recipe. Good stuff.

Today I was grateful to be off work. I kept trying to get up and stay up and I kept failing. I finally got up for good a little after 3 p.m. Headache from neck out of place and the last week the out of place neck took the middle into sway which set my hips off which travelled to knees and even ankles -so fucked up that was. A week of running around in the car, sitting for hours in uncomfortable chairs visiting with relatives and working just did me in. I'm improving with the day and should back to a happy mobile normal within a week. Yay!
