I wish that I could talk about what happened but I can't. Not right now. My boss asked me to come back and yesterday I did. I'm back at work (for now) and that limits what I can say about my situation. Trust me when I say it was horrible and it was insane and one day I will tell you all about it.
* * * * *Grady took his first step on Sunday. It was just one step so I can't say that he's walking but he's on his way. I don't think I've ever been prouder.
* * * * *Shawn and I are trying to get back to our healthy habits after eating nothing but comfort carbs during Grady's illness. Last night I wanted falafel but they're fried (mmm fried) so instead I whipped together a sort of falafel-esque baked chickpea patty. They were so yummy.
Then I buzzed an onion, four cloves of garlic, and the juice of a lemon in the food processor until it was a paste.
I mixed the chickpeas into the flour mixture and then added the onion paste and stirred it well.
I served the patties with whole wheat pita bread, lettuce, red peppers, avocado, cucumber, tomatoes, onion, and tzatziki.
