I know, one of my resolutions for my 40s was to be less productive and more enjoy-y, but after the surgery, I'm going to be somewhat incapacitated for a while, and I'm not sure how long, and I suspect we'll have our hands full just trying to cope with the kids with me unable to pick them up for a while, so I'm feeling a serious urgency to getting all the physical labor stuff done by Wednesday. We'll see how that goes. With any luck, post-surgery, I can just spend a few days peacefully in bed watching tv. Except Anand has mysteriously lost our remote -- we have looked and looked and looked. Watching tv on my computer. That's right. Karina got me hooked on Medium, and I think I still have five seasons left to watch, so that alone is going to take care of my post-surgery recovery time.
Oh, the other thing Kev and I have to do today is walk through our house and make a comprehensive list of all the things that still need to get fixed to give Pam on Monday morning. That'll be super-fun. Well, it might be satisfying, if they actually get fixed. We'll see. At this point, I'm somewhat despairing that my house will EVER get painted, but that is a lament for another time. And maybe she'll show up tomorrow with an actual locked-in-stone start date for the painters. We live in hope.
I'm trying to figure out now how many curries I should make for tonight. 7-8 adults, 3-4 small kids. I have finished: beef and potato curry, cauliflower curry, spicy leeks. I'm planning on curried shrimp, beetroot curry, chili eggs, and a beet leaf / kale salad. I think that's enough, right? I don't need to go back to the store to pick up some mushrooms or chicken? Maybe chicken legs to barbecue for the kids? Or mac-and-cheese? Kids make things complicated.
