A New Way to Measure My Journey

Monday, November 19, 2012

I stopped off at Mom's this morning at the end of my walk. She handed me the ad for W_____________, and said "Lots of Thanksgiving Recipes."

Even though I looked through the grocery ad/cookbook, I was evaluating the recipes and rejecting them as not matching my goals.

A year ago, I would have said, "Oh, I'm changing my menu. We've got to have that," to at least four recipes–one casserole and three desserts.

I've come miles and miles from where I was a year ago.

Off to the grocery. Need a pumpkin and some other harvest veggies, and a few things for the family part of the menu, including the turkey.

    Since I'm not a cook, I don't have to worry. If I was cooking, the people would worry. Glad you are sticking to your guns and not changing menu.

    Mom has done the dinner for the past 5 years while I was sick. Last year, she was very stressed, though I helped. So I figure I'm healthy again with so much energy, it's time to pay it back.

    I'm leeaving most of the planning to other people this year. I am just showing up and helping where I am needed.
