wowzer. THAT was tough!! but i did it!!

Friday, August 31, 2012

I had a really rough day at work again. I don't want to go into it, as it's the weekend now, but basically, I was doing the job of three people, all the while the phone was ringing off the hook. 1/3 of what I was doing causes me a lot of physical aches by the end of the day if I'm not careful, and of course I wasn't careful.
Needless to say, by the end of the day I knew I would be craving some major comfort food, and started debating whether I really wanted to make those turkey sloppy joe's I had planned, when hubby texted me HE was having a bad day, and how did pizza and a movie sound? Uh, one word, perfect!
Before I texted him back, I thought about the turkey that was defrosting in the fridge that absolutely had to get used. Sparkrecipes to the rescue! I found a recipe for stuffed meatloaf, with cheese and spinach. Yum! Meatloaf is a big comfort food for hubby, and something I rarely ever make. It's not something I really enjoy, to be honest.

But you know what? That comfort food I really wanted? I don't need anymore. Because, making the meatloaf and roasted potatoes, only in a lightened up way, and knowing how that would be a comfort to my darling hubby, was enough of a comofrt to me. What a wonderful feeling that is!

I'm so proud of myself for not only saying no to pizza, but thinking on my feet and finding a way to still get that comfort feeling after a long day we both so desperately needed. And, on top of that, finding the energy to get my grocery shop for next week done AND make dinner after a long day full of fatigue, aches and pains.
Go me! (Yeah, I'm tooting my own horn a little here. Just so excited!! Can you tell? lol!)

    You should toot away! I unfortunately had a similar week at work and gave into the pizza last night.

    Way to go, we had a rough day(had to put a pet down due to cancer) and I plan to have a relaxing night with just him. Dinner will be onion burgers, a healthy favorite, and potoatoes. I am actually looking forward to the night.
