Those of you who know me, know I can do a lot of different things. What you may not know about me, is I expect to be really good at everything I do even if I have never done it before. I know, this is very strange, but is it one of my things. I ran into this the other day. L is working a weird schedule, so she is not here to cook dinner. I decided to give it a whirl with what we had in the house. When L came home, I was upset because I made such a crappy dinner. I made chicken, which was fine. Then I made 2 steamers, those things you nuke in the microwave, they cook in the bag, and then squish around and serve. Well…they were gross. I got upset because I feel like making steamers is a fool proof dinner. L comes home and asks me how my dinner was and I say CRAPPY! Then I proceed to go on a tirade how I am going to starve for the next 5 weeks without her here to cook dinner and I can’t even make ONE GOOD MEAL! She of course laughs at me, “why are you upset baby, are you mad at the steamers?”
“Yes!!” I say. She laughs, picks one up and informs me they have been expired for 8 months and that is why they are so crappy. Oh.
She then asks me, “did your mom teach you to cook?”
“Did I teach you to cook?”
“Have you been watching cooking shows?”
“Why do you expect to be able to cook?”
“Because I am a grown woman and should be able to prepare a meal!”
“Okay, let me teach you to cook.”
Like I said, I expect to be able to do things I have never done before and do them well. Maybe I should cut myself some slack. L ordered a beginners cook book for me:) I think it will be a good skill to get down before we have kids, so my night to cook will be more than pizza night!
On another note, I feel like myself a little more everyday. The thyroid meds finally got my energy levels back. On Friday I had an insane day at work and I still came home and walked the dogs and did the dishes. Now that sounds more like me!
I also determined that my cycle length is 28 days and so far is like clockwork. I should be ovulating in the next few days(3-4 to be exact). I am sad to not be trying this time, but feel that it will be so soon that I am still excited. All seems to be heading in the right direction. We might have taken a detour to babyville, but we will get there soon!
