Now you might think that nothing else could possibly go wrong...Right? WRONG...
So yesterday morning as Frank was continuing to string the new lights on the tree, I went down to the basement to start decorating and preparing for the party. Bent over to pick something up and BANG out went my hip. Could the timing be any worse??
Don't feel bad for me though...spend all your sympathy on poor Frank who then had to carry my load as well as his own. He is the greatest guy in the world. The tree is up and decorated, the upstairs is completely finished. I was able to get Mom's cake and cupcakes baked but not a whole lot more than that.
We went to Mass at 4 and then out to dinner with John, Kirsten and our friend Steve who just happens to be a chiropractor. We bought him dinner and then he gave me a much needed adjustment. He was able to get some movement in my hip but not much. It is pretty swollen and tight. So while it is better and not spasming any more, I am still not moving easily or quickly.
I have been up since 4 am after a very restless night because I couldn't get comfortable. I got Mom's cake glazed and was going to frost the cupcakes but there is no butter in the fridge. I have butter in the chest freezer in the garage but I can't dig through it to find the butter so it will have to wait for Frank to awaken. In the meantime, I have put together my salads and the baked beans. The potatoes need to wait for butter as well.
Okay, enough with the whining and pity party...Everything will get done and be fine. Anything that doesn't get done will go unnoticed by anyone else but Frank and I anyway. Let's get on with the Weekly Menu. Please stop back each day for photos and recipes. I promise not to keep whining with each post. You will also want to stop by MPM for more great menu ideas. Menu planning will help keep you sane during this busy time of year.
