This is hard to say without stepping on toes :
There are some people who think I just play on my iPad all day. That couldn't be farther from the truth. With one good arm that isn't even 100% I keep the house clean, play with the kids, and cook dinner for my family every night. Oh yeah, I homeschool my kids every day. I am far from playing on the iPad all day. Yes, I check it often, because I simply have to take breaks but I am not on it all day. People who say that make me very angry. I may do things slower than I used to, but most things I get done. No I can't fold the laundry, but I try to at least keep it clean for hubby. Hubby got an email that really hurt my feelings as well as my daughter's (who happened to read it). It was very accusing and made me quite angry. I'm still not over it. I probably won't be for a long time. I am doing the best I can. My kids learned a lot of behaviors that I don't tolerate while I was in the hospital that I am still trying to fix. My body may be slow and my speech may be funny, but my mind is still all there. Just because it takes to much energy to say things, doesn't mean I don't feel them. I am still the same person, just trapped in a body that won't cooperate.
That being said I am very excited about some new crock pot recipes that hopefully I will try next week. Last night one of my younger princesses helped me make dinner. We had baked fish, rice, and mixed veggies and it was quite good. She brushed both sides of the tilapia with msg free ceaser salad dressing and sprinkled on some chives. I was impressed with how simple but yummy it turned out. My sis in law got us a panini maker for Christmas, and we have been enjoying a wide variety of paninis. My favorite so far was a caprese salad panini with smoked turkey that hubby made. Yum!
