Thanks to all for your kind words of support. It's been quite a week, but I think we've come out with our heads above water.
We had some open discussion (once again) with son #2. I think we've come to some agreement about boundaries and expectations, and consequences for any future occurrences, which hopefully won't need to happen. He was thankful for us giving him the couple of days, and also for us not reacting explosively and trying to treat him as a 'young' adult rather than a child <believe me, this took a hell of a lot of restraint>. Reality is, we all have to live with each other and nobody needs suspicion an hostility for an everyday thing. I can only hope he's being honest with us, I guess time will tell. Things have been relatively good over the long weekend, and he heads back to school tomorrow, has to meet with his principal about his plan and so on. That part is up to him.
Eats have been decent over the weekend, though I can say I had more wine than I needed. Turning that off for the week ahead.
B: coffee with cream
L: bit of leftover steak & asparagus
D: bison/grass fed beef patties topped with carmalized onion and butter sauteed oyster mushrooms. Wine. Strawberries & greek yogurt with shredded coconut.
B: coffee with cream
11am: 2 jumbo eggs over a bison/beef pattie
D: cream of greens soup (first PB cookbook- combined the cream of greens & cream of broccoli soup recipes, used broccoli & kale plus heavy cream) topped with cheddar & parmesan, bacon & scallions, bunch of hot wings. Wine.
Yesterday I picked up some bedding plants, managed to plant my herbs and stuff: basil, oregano, rosemary, cilantro, thyme, lemon grass, cherry tomatoes, assorted lettuces, dill. More flowers and such to plant out front. Today was really chilly and not nice at all, so I need to get at that during the week. Temps overnight are supposed to be only 1C, so I think I need to cover up the basil and tomatoes.
Busy week ahead at work, and hubby is once again away from tomorrow until late Thurs. We'll see how things unfold.
