Making Just a Normal Day Spectacular!

It’s a Monday……I hate Monday’s! All the kids at work are cranky because they want another “stay home day” ….and I’m cranky ’cause I want one too!!!! But knowing that I get to come home to my own little world here makes everything that much more bearable. I have always enjoyed cooking…it is the fact of having to cook that I never liked before. I liked cooking when I wanted to cook. I also do not like cooking the same things over and over and over…I would never be one of these people that have “Taco Tuesdays” or what not. So as part of this new me my thoughts on cooking have changed as well! I no longer feel as if it is a chore that I have to dread throughout the day. I actually look forward to coming home each evening and cooking. Of course there are nights when I’m just not feeling it! The day was just too long and I just want to veg on the couch and order a pizza and that works out just fine! I’m also trying out new types of recipes that I would have never imagined cooking before. The teenage son has even given up his standard meal of chicken tenders and mac &  cheese to try a meal or two! The best part is that all of the meals I have cooked have  been healthy and mostly low calorie! The boyfriend and I are working on losing weight and living healthier lifestyles. It is a difficult task! The unhealthy choices are always so tempting and convenient!

Anyway, back to the topic of tonight’s blog. This amazing man I have been so lucky to fall in love with has this incredible ability to turn any normal day (yep even a Monday) into a spectacular day! I look forward to our talks while I’m cooking dinner; we each discuss our days and share any news we may have. Even now, just sitting here on the couch together gives me such a comforting feeling (he is busy on his laptop and I’m on mine). I like knowing the lonely days are over and look forward to spending forever with him! I wish everyone could feel this level of happiness! Thanks for reading! Time to go finish up my work I brought home and spend the rest of the evening snuggled up!
