Best Laid Plans...Again

October 27th, 2012 at 07:11 am

So the plan for tonight was pizza for dinner. Homemade, mind you. There was absolutely no reason for me to think that would be a problem, but when I went to make the dough all I had left was one cup of flour. Um...what? I always have flour. Always. And I'm the only one who gets into it. And since I haven't made bread in a couple of weeks I've had no need to keep an eye on the flour level. I always know how much I have on hand and when I need to buy more. Then I remembered DS's paper mache project with his dad last weekend. Made me sick to my stomach because I realized they had used the organic flour to do it, too.

So, no pizza for dinner. Don't think the idea of delivery didn't flit through my head because it did. Instead I threw together a meatloaf, the ingredients of which were easily at hand. I will buy some flour tomorrow. I just couldn't stand the thought of driving today, not even the six blocks to the store and with my cough it is too cold and rainy outside to walk. Not that I have the energy today anyway.

Seriously, today was a day when I really felt my disability. I just did not have enough spoons.

    The spoon story is a great way to explain how it feels to have a disability. One that I will remember. Feel better friend. {{hugs}}

    I try to incorporate some flexibility into our weekly meal plan. For instance, I will buy a can of albacore tuna or an extra package of ham that I can use for a dinner meal just in case I forget to thaw out something from the freezer. Later in the week, if I have not used it, I use it for one of my lunches to take to work. Congrats on not yielding to the desire to call for pizza delivery or something.

    awww...don't be so hard on yourself. The flu on top of allergies and illness leaves room for Murphy's Law to sidle in...anything that can go wrong does go wrong. Do your best to hang on to your sense of humor, it's a powerful tool to make you feel better. Wishing you good health, take care of yourself.
