Slowly but surely…

As most of you know it’s been a rough 18 months.  Jerry and I are trying to get back to some normalcy (whatever that means).

One of the ways it not to eat out as much.   This week, so far, we have cooked dinner in.  Jerry grilled, we had some spaghetti and tonight we are having ultimate comfort food,  Meatloaf and Mac ‘n Cheese.  I don’t mind cooking at all.  In fact, I think I’m a pretty darn good cook.  I don’t usually use recipes but just kind of think of things that would taste yummy together and viola…a meal.  It was one of the first things to go by the wayside when we were heading up to the nursing home all the time.  Yes, I know..I get out of work at 2:30pm and had plenty of time but I could never motivate myself.  Needless to say, Jerry and I have both gained some weight.  That’s what happens when you eat out all the time.  Sure, we played the “we’ll order a salad and it will be okay” game.  Unfortunately the salads usually accompanied an order of something not so good for us.  While I’m still not anywhere near to feeling top notch, I do think that cooking at home is helping.

Now if I could just find the motivation to start cleaning again….
