Well I guess I already screwed over my New Year’s resolution of writing once every week on here… but I swear it was for a good reason! And anyway, I’m writing now… so that’s all that matters.
So the reason: I was at my brother’s for the past week! He recently had major neck surgery so I went over to his and my sister-in-law Wendy’s house to help them out. She had to return to work the next day of the night I arrived and my brother isn’t allowed to lift anything over 5lbs, or bend over, or move his neck side to side… or really at all, so they needed help and I went over without being asked because they’re my family and they’ve helped my mother and I out more times than I can count.
So that’s where I was and I was more than happy to go over. The bad part and why I’m actually able to write this now? I’m sick. I woke up at 12 this afternoon at my brothers unable to swallow with a massive headache and I could barely talk. My brother when he first saw me said I was so pale and immediately needed to go home because, and I quote, “When you’re sick all you want to do is be home in your own bed and get better.” Which is true, and I guess it was better I left because with him trying to recover the last thing he needs is me getting him sick. But it just sucks. I wanted to do so much more for them and now I can’t. Hopefully I’ll feel better in a few days and could go back over.
So that’s been my exciting life for the past almost two weeks. There really isn’t much new, other than my sister-in-law (she’s more like my sister so I really need to just call her that) Wendy found an amazing lemon pepper chicken recipe online and I made that while I was there for dinner and oh my God… it was SO DELICIOUS. I’m definitely going to try to get to the store next week if I feel better to get a chicken for my mother and I and make it for her because it seriously was so good. I actually pinned the website I found it on to my Pinterest. If you’re interested, you can see the recipe here. If you have a crock pot and the spices needed, go make this tomorrow for dinner. You will NOT be disappointed!!
