I have completely lost the will to cook. This is a first for me. I can't use half my sink while I wait for the caulking on it to cure, half my family is gone across the country, there is an unholy pile of dishes, and I have lost the desire to even heat food up. It seems like too much trouble. There are coffee grinds on the floor. I can't cook with coffee grinds on the floor. I can't clean without water and a sponge. I can't access water and a sponge without moving the dishes in the sink. Nope, just can't.
My daughter wanted rice, but she got leftover apple pie which she then stuffed into a pita. We ate cereal until the milk ran out, chocolate chips until those ran out, and now we are working on raisins. There are grapes, but they need to be rinsed and the good half of the sink still has dishes in it. I think there might be a little ice cream left in the freezer, and that is always a nice option since you don't have to heat anything and you can eat right out of the container if you are in the state I'm in. I have created my own zombie apocalypse right here in my own kitchen.
I got some advice from a few others who have had their own self-induced zombie apocalyptic days. One friend's advice was that I could "pile in the car and get WENDYS. Gasp." She also pointed out that paper plates can really save the day (which is obvious but never occurred to me), and lastly she informed me that there are plenty of moms who give their kids goldfish for dinner.
If I don't snap out of this soon we will be in a bad way, but I promise that this will end before anyone's well-being is permanently harmed by lack of nutrition. Rickets and gingivitis haven't come knocking quite yet. I have broccoli and eggplant from my garden languishing tragically on the kitchen counter, but for tonight I think I'm just going to hunt down the mint chocolate chip ice cream.
I love trying new foods, cooking, and gardening. I hope to share these experiences on this site. Thanks for taking a look!
