Oh my hell, drear reader... are there any of you still out there? This poor little blog has been suffering abandonment issues and I can't afford a blog therapist.
Oh, that's better. Nothing like a bulldog train to boost morale. So, here's what happened. I got crazy depressed. Unfortunately, I have a genetic predisposition for depression and it's something I have struggled with since I was a child. Let me tell you first hand, y'all, depression coupled with CFS is a potentially deadly combination. I am beyond fortunate to have an incredibly supportive family, an amazing husband, and the best dog ever. Also, we've had Cooper up in this piece for over a week. Bulldog heaven.
So, here's what happened: I sunk into a bout of depression and I didn't really know why I was so depressed. This only served to make me more depressed. I felt helpless and useless and too exhausted to get pissed off about it. Eventually I started pulling myself out, but I crashed. I tumbled fast and furiously back into days of lethargy spent in bed snuggling Guy with intermittent bouts of crying and a lot of wasted time on my iPad. Finally I returned to the land of the living and it was hectic because I had basically been neglecting everything for weeks. I had a buttload of catching up to do. And now I am catching up with you!
So, let's wrap-up the last three weeks!
WE ATE STUFF:
Monday: I had to work, so we got sandwiches at Subway. I finally admitted that I hate Subway.
Tuesday: I made an awesome quiche! Secret ingredient = Stovetop Stuffing. How can I hate Subway and love Stovetop? Because it's stuffing... STUFFING!
Wednesday: Chicken Enchilada soup
Thursday: No one remembers. Seriously.
Friday: Blood orange sangria... yeah, I ate alcohol soaked fruit for dinner. It was delicious.
Saturday: Fend for yourself because I worked.
Sunday: Papa Murphy's veggie and pepperoni pizza. I made caramelized onions with swiss chard too.
Monday: My husband went to see the Jazz play (I was too depressed to leave the house) and I had leftovers.
Tuesday: Again, no one knows. We have NO IDEA.
Wednesday: We took my handicapped brother to Kyoto *drools*... I forgot to mention that we babysat him for a week.
Thursday: Chicken roll-ups with homemade pesto and mascarpone and spinach fettuccine with vodka sauce.
Friday: Spaghetti squash with kalamata olive and meat ragu.
Saturday: Work and pizza.

Tuesday: Chicken Gloria with peas and cauliflower mashed "potatoes".
Wednesday: Shredded chicken tacos with black beans and caramelized onions and swiss chard.
Thursday: Work and chicken souvlaki from Crown Burger.
