I'm struggling with this ear infection, its mainly gone but the dr thinks that due to the ear swelling it triggered Bell's Palsy so for the last week I have had the right half of my face not working. The dr gave me a course of steriods (horrible things: anger, pmt, racing heart, vicious vicious heartburn to name a few side effects ) and said it may or may not get better. Thanks! I don't know if its that or what but I have been soooooo sleepy and most days crash after taking the big kids to school, yesterday MrM had a sleep with me but MsR just perched on my hip for 2hrs and watched cartoons while I slept. And I still crashed out at 9pm! So apart from sleeping I have been laying on the couch crocheting. The house is a mess.
On another down side it seems I am an emotional cook, if I am sad or sick my cooking is crap. Last night I made a pretty passable beef and green beans but the rice OMG!! 1/2 was raw and the other 1/2 gluggy-think crunchy wall paper paste. I am hoping I do better tonight bbq chicken with mashed potatoes and steamed veg-pretty basic and I don't think I can mess it up. Fingers crossed.
Editied to add: Dinner was a success!!! I even cooked a chocolate self saucing pudding, they licked their bowls clean.
