The Girl wanted to go to the new Mejer’s tonight, I can’t even remember why? Oh, wait…she likes their popcorn, that’s why. She had decided she wanted spaghetti as well. She sought out brown rice noodles in the Asian section and was on the hunt for gluten free breadcrumbs. There are just too many ingredients in those things. There was a pregnant woman shopping in the same area who said “when I make meatballs I use rice krispies. I don’t know about the canola oil but it does work.” We went back and found the rice krispies and canola oil was not on the list of ingredients. I don’t fully trust the labels so the true test will be when I wake up tomorrow. Fingers crossed… The meatballs were surprisingly tasty! Who knew?
I struggled this morning. When I think back, I struggled last month too. It honestly felt like a hangover. Last month I questioned myself. This month I know for a fact that I only had one glass of wine. The place we are having book club is louder than previous places. Last night was exceptionally loud because there was a band on the other side for a private party. The restaurant was jam packed and between the noise and the people, it was a struggle. On the way out I talked to SC about it so I know it’s not just me. She said “yes, that was a lot.”
I’ve been around people everyday, but I haven’t been around large crowds like that since before the shutdown. It was quite draining and maybe it’s more than that? Amy was the first person I wanted to send a question to but I restrained myself. https://herladypinkrose.wordpress.com I know we are all figuring things out as we go but I do think it helps to talk to someone who understands.
There have been other things but I have found that if I don’t talk about it that day,,,the thought is gone…Zia
