Operation: Healthy Husband
I know that you have followed my journey of the past few days and I could not have gotten this far without you and your prayers lifting up my husband and me. So, I thought I would give you an update about how things are going with my new regimen, simply known as "Operation: Healthy Husband." (For this I think we could use some theme music from "Rocky.")
Yesterday, I went to the store and bought $200 worth of fruit, vegetables, some turkey and fish...For the past 24 hours, I have been slicing and dicing more than I have in my entire life. I feel like we live in a virtual vegetable garden and it's beginning to feel like we are bunnies!
I took a picture, but this cannot begin to show you that every nook and cranny of our fridge is filled with apples, peaches, squash, cucumbers, green beans, cantaloupe, carrots, celery, strawberries--you name it, I've got it! (Did I mention that I'm longing for McDonald's?) We've only been at this 24 hours and already the Golden Arches are feeling like they are the gates of heaven.
But, we will persevere...Actually, Ralph is better at all this than I am as he is from a farming community and loves a huge garden. I'm from the city and love a huge mall.
I figured that it was about time to give you something to bring a smile to your faces as this has been such a serious blog for over a week and I had to show you what is going on right now in the life of this family with their little dog....And did I mention that even our little Maltese Jamie has turned his nose up at the thought of eating this way...He looks at me like, "Hey Mom, where's my hamburger?"
When Ralph was in the hospital, he looked all over for him and couldn't figure out why he was away...Now, his tail just wags because he's so happy to see him back home. If I had a tail, I'd be wagging it too!! I'm so happy he's home!!!
I am linking this up to Spiritual Sundays I can't thank all of you enough for your prayers during this trying time...It has meant so much to me. Charlotte, Ginger, Clif--thank you more than words can say!!!!
To everyone who visits this blog, your prayers mean so much and they have kept me going during such dark hours...
and gave me hope!
