I’m late today for a number of reasons. First and foremost, I’ve been laid low by a sinus infection that affected my equilibrium. I’ve been so dizzy all I can do is sit in a dark room. This has been since Friday when a severe weather system moved into our area.
I’m feeling a little better today but not quite back to normal. When I finally dragged myself to the computer this morning, WordPress wasn’t working right. My editing menu disappeared and I couldn’t write my post. The Help Desk guy said it was fine on his end. I tried a different browser and it came up, so it must have something to do with Firefox. Maybe it’s feeling dizzy too.
The menu is super simple this week. Even if I start to feel better I’m not going to be in the mood for anything complicated. Since Greg will be doing the bulk of the cooking, I’ve limited it to leftovers and pre-made stuff he can pull out of the freezer.
Fortunately, he changed my menu last Friday. Instead of having cheeseburgers like I expected, he smoked a chicken and brisket so there’s plenty of food to last us all week. How’s that for timing!
Who does the cooking when you’re under the weather? Or do you have to power through? Do you keep any pre-made foods in the freezer or canned food? They come in handy when you’re not up to the task.
