Ever have those weeks where everything seems to be working against you? That's how life in general has felt these past few weeks. Nothing too terrible, just minor annoyances.
It started with a virus being passed around the family after spring break. Mainly fevers in the kids so nothing too severe. Then I was so lucky (insert sarcasm) to have gotten kidney stones. I've been dealing with these for the past two weeks. Something I hope to never experience again for sure!
I spent most of my day on Monday between appointments and prepping for surgery. After waiting four hours in the hospital to be taken back for the operation, they decided to do another CT scan. It was determined the stone had dropped and likely could pass on its own but another bigger stone is on the right side. Doctor thought it might be dangerous to operate and I gladly opted to just go home at that point, simply because the pain had really eased up.
So here we are, still waiting for those darn stones to pass but thankfully not in much pain. I've spent much of my time outside of work resting as much as possible and therefore, not in the kitchen. I hope to get a couple new posts out to you next week, so I thank you for your patience. I enjoy writing just as much as I hope you enjoy reading them!
But we certainly have had a few happy moments, Easter was definitely a nice day. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed the day surrounded by loved ones.
I also received a new cookbook just in time for Easter. These always put me in a better mood ha! I haven't gotten a chance to read it yet, but hopefully this weekend.
Last, but not least. Before my appointments on Monday, I was feeling pretty good so I drove to pick up our yearly purchase of pork. We have half of a steer coming shortly and then our freezer will be well stocked again. I have a post in the works on the benefits of purchasing meat in bulk like this. I hope it's one you'll enjoy.
For now I am going to be taking it easy but I plan to be back to regular posting next week. Enjoy the rest of your week friends!
