At the suggestion of a good friend, I am keeping this poor little blog alive.
I do read other peoples’ blogs on wordpress but for the time being various other online forums seem to be taking my time.
I do have more time than I had before because I am not working now. In mid-January, I left my job at the pediatric office where I had been for about 17 or so years. I have been a nurse for 40 years. It just felt like the time to not be a nurse for the time being, at least.
Now, what am I doing? Well, for one, I am thinking about nutrition for my husband and me. I actually have cooked a couple of meals, but not many. I am the oldest of a family of 2 adults and 7 siblings. I can cook large meals, huge pots of sauce, lots of potatoes, many eggs. Then I had 4 children of my own plus the Dad and me for 6 so I can still think in large numbers. For years though, I really didn’t cook. The husband and I sort of foraged for food in the PM’s, as I went to the gym or to Jazzercise or to CrossFit or went running after work on many a weeknight. On weekends we went out to eat most of the time. I love restaurants. Now, I have cooked and, oh boy, do we have leftovers just from the few meals I have prepared. We also have still got Fridays and Saturdays to go out, though, so I am not cooking tonight. It is Friday.
This doesn’t sound like nutrition to me, but it is somewhat. At least what I make isn’t loaded with salt and I do set the table so we aren’t in front of the TV while we eat. I think this may be where I am for the time being.
