Weekly Menu 10/13-10/19

Happy Columbus Day! I know for some it was probably work as usual and for others it’s an observed work holiday perk. Since Josh works for a bank, he always gets it off. However, this morning will not be spent in bliss. I have my pre-op this morning and I’m a little hesitant about how it will go.

This past week was a tough one for me. I don’t hand over the household management to just anybody, but Josh did a wonderful job of keeping the home clean, the kids taken care of, and allowing me the rest my body so badly needed. Still needs. I’m still so weak. I get tired easily and it just feels weird to me. It isn’t like my body had surgery, just a portion of my face. Oh well. Each day gets better.

Our menu for the week is pretty much the same menu for last week. We were so surprised and thrilled that so many people came to our aid and provided meal. Josh’s parents cooked us dinner the day of my surgery. We had leftovers the following evening, and then my mom cooked a turkey and made us a mini thanksgiving dinner that she split between her and my dad, my brother and his family (they just had a baby last month) and us-complete with apple crisps! Friday evening, Grace’s best friend’s family brought over dinner and then Saturday my mom made homemade turkey soup (which I haven’t shared with Josh) and Josh’s sisters brought over chicken stew with homemade rolls and eclair cake. All things soft and delicious! Needless to say, we didn’t get into our menu much.
