This is a picture of a tired girl. Her eyes look kinda funny...does one of my eyes always look off-center? I don't think so....but maybe that's just what happens when I'm tired and trying to take a picture of myself with an iphone without looking at the phone, so that it looks like I'm looking at the camera, not up...you know?
So you know...the usual. Work, school, lots of chicken. What?! I don't know why I do these things sometimes. I feel like I have enough on my plate and then I go and add something! Have you heard of Zaycon chicken? Basically...you buy a TON of chicken at once for a discounted price, and its 100% natural chicken with no added hormones, additives, or artificial ingredients. I'm not SUPER convinced of it just cause like, it's not organic or free range...but I figure it's better than the usual grocery store junk. Anywho...I bought 40 POUNDS OF CHICKEN! It's all fresh, right from the farm or wherever, and its just a ton of boneless skinless breasts, but they aren't cleaned up or anything. So it's my job to cut, freeze, make meals, etc. Tonight I made a bunch of chicken taquitos. YUM. I love them, and they are good for lunches and freeze. Tomorrow I'm going to make chicken taco wrap stuff. Anyway, I'm hoping to get it all done by Saturday. OH- but a major good thing is...one of my friends from my ward paid me for half. So I only have to deal with 20 pounds...which is still a lot.
Today I told Clay, "My goodness- can you imagine what life will be like once I'm not taking these danged classes?!"....then I said..."Screw classes...just think how life will be without Lyme and pills!". Seriously, you'd think we'd get used to taking so many pills...but it's the biggest stress. Such a pain and we both hate it. Certain pills make it so that water tastes bad. And everything you eat tastes bad. It just makes your mouth taste so bad. For HOURS after you take it. So annoying. I'm taking a pill like that right now. Oh well, I'd rather have that then gut wrenching pain...like Clay is having! Man oh man. I just keep telling myself to hang on for a year and we'll just feel like we have the best life in the whole world. A life without pills, pain, classes? Seriously sounds like heaven.
I am pretty excited about my chicken though. It's forcing me to make a bunch of meals, and I love that. So much better and cheaper than eating out when I'm too tired to cook.
I am busy, and tired, but I am feeling good. Life really is good and Clay and I are so blessed. I have been reminded so much lately of how much my body was limited a year ago. Its so funny because no one really would notice or know...because I could do normal things. I just couldn't do more than one normal thing in a day. I just remember anytime I went grocery shopping I had to bring back something for dinner cause there was NO WAY I could do grocery shopping and cooking in a day. Even if I just picked up a few things. So strange. Because now I can. When I think of how much better my body is, I am happy. Clay too. He worked out today and yesterday! That makes me happy. I know I talk about all this a lot, but I need to recognize it and talk it out. It helps me.
Really, I am so happy! I think angels are helping me with my school cause somehow I'm passing all my classes and still doing all the normal things in life (with the exception of having a dirty kitchen...a lot...). I do wish I had more time for crafts/sewing...there are some ideas that just keep coming to me and I just don't have time for them. Oh well. Just a few more months and my time is all mine.
Well, time to go finish packing those taquitos for freezing. Then...tv and sleep :)
