    I had surgery on my foot on Monday. I'm feeling better, managing the pain pretty well. But I can't do anything up and about for long before I have to elevate my foot and rest.
    My family's working hard to make the house run, but they're either trying to kill me or cure me of control freakishness.
    Yesterday:
    Weak coffee, burnt toast, and scrambled eggs with no salt. [​IMG]
    Today:
    Weaker coffee, toast that wasn't hardly warm, and cold scrambled eggs.

    I so don't like being out of the game like this! 'Specially when it seems I'm the only one who can make coffee! [​IMG]

    Joking aside, they're being awesome. I have new chicks, and I can get around for short periods of time.

    They make fun of me for cooking all the time, but it's because I have, um, high standards.
    I may direct traffic for dinner tonight.

    Quote:I know what you mean! I do have a wonderful hubby who can cook, clean and tend chickens with the best of them, but I had a hard time letting go when I seriously broke my ankle in January. I still can't get around that well and when I am on it for a long time, it swells up like my leg swallowed a baseball and it got stuck at the ankle. You have my empathy!!
