They Kicked In

The Boy told me at some point the steroids would kick in.

He said that, if his experience (and the package warnings) were any indication, that I would be restless, hyper and unbelievably busy…Shannah x 20.

I’ve been on steroids for over a week now. Dragging around. Still in pain. Exhausted.

Disappointing, really.

And then yesterday happened.

After returning home from a morning eye doctor appointment (more on that tomorrow), I:

  • made brisket, mashed potatoes, gravy and green bean casserole for lunch;
  • roasted two chickens;
  • prepared and froze a batch of chicken enchiladas;
  • prepared and froze a container of chicken spaghetti;
  • shredded chicken into small size freezer containers for future meals;
  • cooked four pounds of hamburger;
  • precooked and froze a large batch of spaghetti sauce;
  • premixed and froze the ingredients for chili;
  • prepared and froze a container of Tex-Mex chili mac;
  • cooked a pound of breakfast sausage;
  • prepared and froze breakfast burritos;
  • made sausage and gravy for tomorrow’s breakfast;
  • cooked and jarred tapioca pudding;
  • washed and stored collard greens;
  • washed and stored lettuce;
  • washed and stored fresh spinach;
  • washed and stored cilantro;
  • prepared a vegetarian meal for dinner; and
  • washed all of the bed linens and pillows.

Definitely a case of Shannah x 20.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m still in a bit of pain (that dratted lung!), but I’m not tired and we’ll certainly have less stressful evening meal preparation for the next several weeks.
