Skillet BBQ and Mac and Cheese and Continued Lethargy

George fixed a skillet dinner last night with BBQ and Mac and Cheese.  Puckett's restaurant does a similar dish, which George said inspired him to do this one.  We had corn bread with it.  The mac and cheese had been frozen from Katy's wedding.  lol  Almost a year later.  Can you believe it's almost been a year?  Soon we'll be getting the cake out for them to have on their anniversary and I can have my container back that it's in.  lol 

I made it through the day yesterday as it was very busy.  I need sun and exercise terribly.  I need to stretch muscles and spend some energy to create some energy.  Probably have a shortage of Vitamin D as well. I long for the day I can come home and take a walk after work.  Right now it's too dark and dreary and rainy and/or cold.  Day light savings can't come soon enough.  

My plan for the day is to increase the Vitamin D to morning and afternoon, and increase the liquids, and decrease the food intake. 

At the dinner table George said "so what's wrong?  Are you tired or not feel good?"  I said "a little of both" I think.  I don't want to do anything, say anything, think about anything.  I just want to be still, be asleep, or play this tropical Farmville game as it's low thought low energy.  I just know that it's the lack of sun, Vit D shortage - deep winter doldrums.  Happens this time of year.  It's really akin to being depressed I think.  Only I don't feel sad or hopeless like a depression though, as I know I have a lot to look forward to, a lot I want to do, and all that but it's more like I just want to be wrapped up, asleep in bed, and so forth.  

After dinner I got into the linen closet and brought out a warm fluffy soft throw and wrapped it around me.  George said, "are you kidding, I'm burning up!"  It made me feel warm and cozy and I went to bed with it.  Made my self laugh b/c I thought, here I am a grown woman with my "blankie" lol  But it was warm and comforting to sleep with.  And I slept good and slept deeply.  So much so that I had a headache when I woke up.  I was concentrating in a dream but the dream was forgotten.  

Drinking coffee now and the headache is disappearing.  

I'm happy to say that I earned all the compasses yesterday for Luis Lookout in Tropical Farmville.  lol Finally.  And now I have to have 40,000 to buy it.  I am at 30,000 so it'll take about a week to get there.  lol I'll work on selling some things and focus on $ instead of experience points.  

Well, I'm going to get off of here and get on with the day.   I have to stop and get cake for our Service Awards event today.  So have to be at Walmart early.  After work I'll be getting my nails done.  

Tomorrow is Friday.  I was thinking this morning, there is such "freedom" that comes with Friday.  The outlook of Freedom to the weekend.  Where you can work on your own agenda.  I'm lucky that I like my work, but it's nice regardless to know that soon you will have two whole days to work on your own agenda, to be able to enjoy your home for more than an evening meal and sleep, and just to rest and rejuvy and not have to be anywhere! 

Ya'll have a great day!


  1. I have my favorite comfy throws to cuddle in. In the evening when I finally sit down, I do get chilly. I love my blanket too. The idea of mac and cheese with BBQ sounds really good. I never thought to pair the two together. One more day till your Freedom Friday ! Hang in there !

  2. I have a blankie too. I cuddle with it on my couch. That Mac n Cheese looked yummy. Ultimate comfort food.

  3. Your dinner looks so good I like mac and cheese so I might try to fix it like George did. I hope you feel better soon and can enjoy the weekend.

  4. I'm sitting here with my soft Vera bradly throw over me. We love throws. I have them on my beds and couch. The wind blew hard all night long. I got very little sleep. My back hurt and I just could not get comfortable. I love good Mac n cheese. Never seen it cooked like that. Your husband sounds like he enjoys cooking. That's a plus nowadays.
