I know, it's been a while. Here's the story. Don't know if I mentioned this before, but I'm an Environmental Scientist. By education I'm an Aquatic Biologist, that means I know freshwater critters; fish, bugs, mollusks, and such. As an Environmental Scientist I do things like, Wetlands and stream Assessments, Endangered Species Habitat Assessments, and other field work. About a month ago I went and delineated a creek. Usually we use a survey grade GPS Unit, this time we didn't. The client said he had surveyors on staff, all we had to do was stake the creek and they would get the lats and longs. Some 40 stakes later we were done. To make this long story short, a couple of weeks later my elbow was really hurting and I went to the doctor who told me I had Tennis Elbow, probably from the creek delineation and the 40 stakes, it seemed the timeline was correct. Then began the real problems.....the doctor put me on steroids! The string of side effects was unbelievable...nausea, sunsickness, constipation, sleeplessness, nausea, nausea, constant nausea, dry brittle hair, dry brittle fingernails, nausea, water retention.......did I mention the nausea. So, for the last two weeks, I have not done much cooking.
Fast forward, I've finished the meds, but my body is not completely over the trauma, but I will start cooking anyway.
Yesterday, Al and I went shopping at the soon to be closed Borders. There isn't much of a discount yet, but I wanted my choice. I bought a lot, LOT of cookbooks and cooking magazines. Mostly Weightwatchers, so I will continue on my path of tasty healthy food! WOOT!!!
I was running out of main dishes, so now I can keep going and we will all kinds of fun together!
See ya'll later.
