Ha - back to the roots!
So I thought after eating ALL DAY yesterday and gaining a proud 6 lbs over the last two or three days, I would just live off the fat of the belly today, as well as the no doubt plentiful remnants still contained in digestive system. After plans were made and approved by said frontal lobe, I came downstairs at 8 (kids slept in as are all sick), and RAVENOUS HUNGER hit me smack in the face. I just couldn't not eat, but at least I stayed primal. Before my tea was even done I had given the kids breakfast and made myself an egg sunny side up, on a breakfast sausage pattie, and a half zucchini cooked with butter and salt. Snarfed it all up but barely made a dent into hunger, so ate another egg that the kids left and other half of zucchini dripping with butter. Hunger is still barely contained...this is not good. Ugh, here we go, spending way too much energy and calories on damage control. Also everybody is still sick and DH is still MIA. Plus he's not going to come back glowing with testosterone and tasty dinosaur-steak slung over his shoulder, but with congested sinuses and exhausted from overly long monster drive. Ugh ugh. But must not complain about comfortable middle-class life with lovely family. Instead I will drink more tea.
