Who gets the reference?
[When I say napping, I was back asleep by 7am and slept until 12:30 pm (after sleeping from 10pm Friday night to 6am Saturday morning). Now, I’m usually a two-hour napper (the 20-minute power nap never did anything for me), but 5-1/2 hours? I think the fatigue is here, at least for the moment. So far, I’m making it through my workweek before collapsing. We’ll see how long I can continue to do that before I can’t.]
– watching Firefly marathon on TV in bed (not sure I caught the very beginning of it this morning – might hafta start over at the very begining on Netflix through my Apple TV)
– brunch (picked up by Hubby and brought home to me from our local Denny’s)
[Otherwise known as “something to have Apple Blossom Honey or maple syrup on.” This seems to be a comfort-food weekend thing. But, I figure if I’m not gaining weight (which, after quitting smoking CFT 76 days ago, that I’m not is a miracle in itself), I figure my body can use the extra calories to repair the damage caused by the necessary radiation therapy. So when Hubby asked what I wanted for breakfast, my answer was one of the following three items: waffle, pancake, french toast – and some protein to go with it.]
– made cranberry sauce
[Yup, homemade, from scratch, and all that stuff. Seriously this stuff is easy, put it in a pot, cook for 45 minutes, stirring & mashing up every 15 or so, then cool & eat. The most time-consuming part is cutting up the oranges.]
– watching more Firefly marathon on TV with Hubby
[So, when I got the stuff to make cranberry sauce, I also picked up a turkey breast and a couple turkey thighs. I made a triple batch of sauce this year because a couple months ago I had 1 cup left over from last year’s batch which got defrosted and eaten over my morning yogurt on two mornings and it was damn good! So I figured cranberry sauce is Not just for Thanksgiving (and neither is a turkey sammich with mayo on one side and cranberry sauce on the other Only for the Day After), so I made a triple batch and bought some turkey to go with it. Hubby picked up that gauntlet and made the yummiest dinner: turkey, garlic mashed potatoes (nuked from frozen), brussel sprouts (also nuked from frozen), and pan-drippings gravy, with my cranberry sauce. Happy tummy!]
So things were going pretty well, I wasn’t really feeling caught up on rest, but Monday morning was nearly nigh and I’d go for it anyway, until…
I called my Dad (like I do with both folks every – or as nearly as possible – day): See “My Last Anchor to Childhood – And My First Ativan.”
