A lot on my mind right now. Staying healthy for my baby is a high priority. But I'm stressing. I'm getting morning sickness A LOT. I also have a lot of new responsibilities at the ranch. Secretarial work, cooking, the ranch boys, ect. Not to mention my house is still in boxes.
I am H O M E S I C K. A Disney movie started playing at my house this afternoon and I started crying because I miss Disneyland. Serious. I am a emotional wreck. I have not exercised at all in like 3 weeks. Everything is off in my usual daily life. My routine, my diet, my exercise. My home, internet, phone, stores, everything.
I'm not trying to complain. I really like Tennessee. It's so beautiful. The town here is soooo cute. I really love the ranch boys. Some of them are hard, some are sweet as pie. My husband gets called late at night to deal with rebellion in a certain boy. It's a heart wrentching ministry because you just weep for them and you want them to do right, but only they can choose that. Some of them have parents at home that cry and pray for them to change, and others haven't spoken with their bio-logical parents in years. When you know what some of them have been through in their lives, or what some of them have done that resulted in them being here, it's truly emotional. God has given us a love for them all.
I am just wondering to myself, can I do all this??? Can I have a healthy pregnancy and not gain all the weight when I just uprooted out of my normal, stable life into the un know?? Can I cook for 20+ people every other day and still make healthy yummy food so I and my family and baby and all the ranch boys are healthy? Can I handle all the responsibility??
I made my first two ranch meals last week. I cooked Chicken and Dumplings for 30 people, and baked 6.5 dozen brownies. Everyone loved it=) The next night I made 12 pizza's (frozen) a huge salad and peach cobbler. Obviously the easy foods to make for a lot of people are pre-packaged. I really need to search my cookbooks for healthy easy recipes. If you have one please share!!
Love, The Curvy Housewife
