Trying Something Different

Instead of buying Halloween candy that I LOVE LOVE LOVE, like 3 Musketeers, Twix, and Snickers, I bought gum and suckers. That way, I won't eat it all the candy before Friday. Good plan, right? I won't tell you about the time last week when I brought a bowl of chocolate candy to a party. ;)

Why does Husband think he has the right to judge what I eat? I've been making a meaty chili (hush, tomatoes are a vegetable) and putting it over chips with nacho cheese and tomatoes or baked tator tots with shredded cheese everyday for meals. It's just easy. It has protein. It's tasty. I'm nursing the baby, so I'm starving CONSTANTLY. This way, I don't have to take precious time to cook. But Husband (see how I use that term when he is annoying me? ;)) keeps telling me to eat salads. I don't see him eating salads. I don't see him fixing me salads. For some reason, he thinks my meals are his business, but, notably, not his responsibility. Humph! I'm not claiming my meal is healthy. But it's cheap, simple to make, and tasty. I'm tired, stressed, and caring for a toddler and newborn while working from home. Give me a break!

It's probably best that Alan never posts "Wife" posts. He'd probably get in trouble. I clearly have a double standard. LOL.

Or maybe it IS his business since your nutrition directly affects the nutrients that his son get. (I love playing devil's advocate)

So he can sleep on your couch when I kick him out, right? ;) LOL.

He may have to fight the dogs for it, but it's his if he needs it :)

I say if he wants you to eat salad, then he should "cook" a salad for you. I LOVE salads so that wouldn't be a problem for me. I usually make a simple one - lettuce, blue cheese, cranberries, croutons, and a yummy balsalmic dressing.

For the record, I eat fresh vegetables and salads SEVERAL times a week.

Stac Cole said...

Oh, and maybe you wouldn't be so tired if you ate more salad :)

I'm seriously going to duck the next time I see you! ha! I can just see you whizzing an extra nipple shield at my head!
