The weekend

It's 4 a.m., here in New York City. I should be sleeping, 'cause I have a Dr's appt & have to get my son ready for school. My baby was sick on thursday night. He vomited and had a low grade fever. I did not send him to school on friday. He was better and asked for soup w/crackers, for lunch. I gave it to him, along with some grape Pedialyte. It was my turn to cook dinner, so I made macaroni with shredded chicken. I season then steam the chicken legs. After they have cooked, I use 2 forks & shred the meat. I pour spagetti sauce into a pan, and add some italian seasonings, then add the shredded chicken. I let it simmer for a few mins., then add it to the cooked macaroni. I tasted it after it was all prepared and it tasted yummy to me. Well., I then went to my room, for about 40 mins. When I went to the living room, my sister had arrived, took her son and she & her husband left. So I asked my mom about my sister and she says, "oh she & her husband left without eating. They felt that the food had too much black pepper" This is Total B.S.!!! I used a seasoning that did NOT have black pepper. I also used another seasoning which my sister had bought over to my mom's, 'cause she said that she liked it and it did not make the food too spicy or salty. My sister is starting to piss me off, 'cause it seems like she always finds something wrong with my cooking. Grrr! And actually, my fiance & my son love my cooking. Other people have said that I'm a good cook. I asked my other sister for her opinion & she said that it was just fine. On saturday, I was supposed to go to a baby shower at church. Well my mother & I were gonna go buy the gifts during the morning. I woke up with a very sore throat, but decided to go shopping anyway, to avoid my mother from nagging at me. We went outside and had trouble figuring out the new procedure for paying these express buse around our area. You need to get some card first and swipe it on this machine at the bus stop, before you board the bus. Mind you, I've been living out of state for the past 10 yrs., so I accidently got the wrong cards. Anyway, to make a long story short, she pissed me off. I told her, "I'm not going to deal with this crap no more, you can go by yourself". And I walked away & went home. I am soo tired of dealing with this crazy lady. It seems like she has the beginnings of Alzheimers, but she is in deep denial. I told her that she needs to see her doctor about her forgetfulness & confusion. She says there is nothing wrong with her. I'm sorry but I beg to differ. She came back at about 1:30 p.m. & left to the baby shower at almost 3 p.m. My son had fever again, so I gave him medicine. I cooked dinner, yellow rice with chicken thighs and pink beans in sauce. I cook dinner & don't even eat it. I usually steam some vegetables for me. I was not happy on saturday, 'cause I had gained 2 pounds. I don't even know how the heck that happened! On sunday, I didn't do much. Was kinda happy 'cause I had dropped the 2 pounds & lost 2 more. I cooked baked brown rice & corned beef with yellow plantains in it.Gotta get some rest now!

  1. Not trying to cause you panic or anything, but it might be possible that he has the swine flu. I know at least three people in my neighborhood have "flu like symptoms". Anyway, what I meant by "my monthly visitor brought a long a few extra friends" is the 6 lbs I gained as soon as it hit.
