Have I mentioned I love being a housewife? Have I mentioned I think it’s one of the best blessings a girl could have? Have I mentioned it’s my dream-job and I have the best boss in the world?
On a slightly different note, this day started out at 11. Ugh.
Yeah, that brownie that I ate on Sunday afternoon? It was followed by ice-cream that night, that wasn’t even that good. We made healthy ice-cream that tastes better than that was. It was one of those days. The kind that you aren’t at home, in your own kitchen, in your own domain and you eat what you’re given. I was starving. I didn’t want to hurt or offend anyone by refusing to eat what they were. It doesn’t matter how many excuses I come up with, I did it and that was that.
I’m paying for it today. Congestion and over-all crummy feeling. Had headaches and lethargy yesterday trying to work. I really need to stop doing what I know will hurt me.
It isn’t normally this rough. I can handle ‘bad’ things much better now than I could last year at this time. There’s been a lot of little compromises lately tho that have put my body into overload trying to clean it all out and continue healing. I’m not eating spelt right now, but the compromises have been the 100% no-good stuff – wheat roll, white refined sugar & pasteurized dairy (ice-cream), processed foods (brownie). And my body has finally said enough.
That brings us to how do you say enough? How do you go into someone else’s house as their guest and not eat part of the meal they prepared? How do you go out and be the only one not getting any ice-cream? The answer to that is: I really don’t know. I think one of my biggest problems is I’ve been ill-prepared. The Bible tells us wives to be prepared. Read Proverbs 31. I always thought that lovely woman must’ve had a double dose of supernatural energy, but really if you think about it 1) God is our refuge and strength so of course she did and 2) what was she? Prepared! She would get up early to feed her family, make clothes ahead for the season to come. She was prepared and she was honored for it.
So one of my goals this week, in amongst cooking for a get-together at my in-laws and cleaning and getting ready for our teen fellowship party Friday, is to get prepared. Sit down, write out meal ideas and plans, bake and prep foods we can eat for lunches and snacks, find healthy treat recipes my handsome husband would enjoy too. I will try to write some of that out here, so that maybe someone somewhere in need of ideas too can make the time I prep well wasted. I mean used. Well used. Have I mentioned I procrastinate anything that involves sitting down? Maybe I feel like I’m not working hard enough if I can sit while doing it? Plus there’s so many other chores that involve NOT sitting right now.
I’ll get to it someday. I promise. 😉
