The good? Well, that's obvious! All the new things AND I just picked up my three new cookbooks this morning. I haven't had time to give them more than a cursory glance yet, but I'm looking forward to giving them a good read. The little I've already seen of Ted Allen's cookbooks tells me they're going to get a major workout. If I'm being honest, I may make one of two of the Cake Boss' recipes. I bought the book because I love him.
The bad is that I'm so sore, I can't make the progress I want to getting things done. I almost talked myself out of going to the post office this morning because I'm so achy (seriously glad I went anyway). I realize there isn't a timetable before Friday (when the carpet cleaners come), but I've lived in an ugly, smelly trashpile for so long that I'm impatient to have a beautiful home. I want to be able to open the blinds and the windows.
Now for the seriously annoying. As I turned to leave the post office with my package, a woman approached me and without any lead-in tried to hand me a leaflet and lectured me about how wheat is not a food and it's actually an opiate. (Really? Then why do I have no problem stopping at two pieces of bread for my sandwich?) I had all I could do to get rid of her. The words "no, thank you" should have been enough but weren't. I have a real problem with people like that.
Oh well, now I'm home watching Bobby, waiting for the groceries to get here and doing the little my muscles let me at a time. Tonight I'm christening the cookware. In honor of Bobby's penchant for Southwestern food, the first thing I'm making is -- nachos!
I am SO glad I don't have to work Monday!
