I am very thankful that I'm feeling back to normal today. The last couple of days I've felt 2 1/2 parts crazy to 1/2 part sane. My "normal" is probably 2 1/2 parts sane to 1/2 part crazy, so I was really thrown for a loop. I don't know if it was postpartum hormonal issues, lack of sleep, or both, but man. I felt like I was living in crazy land in my head. I couldn't even get myself to make dinner the last two nights!
But today I felt much better when I woke up. I made some delicious blueberry muffins for breakfast (recipe soon to come to my other blog); I did the big "restock" shopping trip I've been putting off since I had Walt; I rearranged a couple cupboards to accommodate for the new food; I'm close to finishing up folding a mountain of laundry; I cleaned Dean's bathroom; I made a great dinner (mini meatloaves, garlic and rosemary mashed potatoes, sauteed zucchini and mushrooms) ; I had an enjoyable day with my boys. I still need to do dinner dishes and put away said clothes, but all in all it's been a much, much better day.
Now for my redemption. I once confessed that meatloaf is one of those foods I just can't ever get right. Well I got it right tonight! I am convinced that I was just trying a whole lot of crappy recipes because this one was easy and DELICIOUS! It's slightly more time consuming than regular meatloaf, but the extra step is well worth it. I followed the recipe exactly (well, as exactly as I can which is not exactly exactly, but pretty darned close.) This is a keeper for sure. Matt liked it and said he'll even take it in his lunch tomorrow as a leftover. The consistency was great. The taste was great. Dean ate it really well. I am redeemed.
