In the morning I go to drop both kids off with a woman far more competent than I at this whole parenting nonsense–she handles Miles and Shiny and her four and five year old and sometimes a couple neighbor kids and she’s SIX MONTHS PREGNANT.…Leave a Comment
Kailea moved out today. I’m so proud of her–she took the bull by the horns and got herself a decent first job and a place to live. The part that hurts is that I’m super, duper painfully sick right now–sore throat, fever, chills, ear ache,…Leave a Comment
Or maybe at all. Huge year. Huge. Full of all sorts of completely life altering things. In other news, going to the doctor=right call, I feel almost “fine” except for the part where I have to sleep 10-14 hours per day and can’t lift things.…Leave a Comment
Surgery went well, they managed to do everything vaginally as far as I can tell, so no abdominal incisions at all. I feel “crampy” at this point but I’ve had worse periods. The 6 hours following surgery were awful, brutal, mostly due to the catheter.…Leave a Comment
Below the cut for much discussion.2 Comments
Basic recipe (the TL:DR version!)
2 heaping tablespoons cocoa
Honey to taste
1 cup tart cherry juice (must be pure cherry, should be tart, use black cherry juice if you can’t find tart)
Water, seltzer or almond/rice/coconut milk to taste. NOT dairy milk (and I don’t ever recommend soy for anyone but that’s another post.)
Mix cocoa and honey into a paste.
Add a tiny bit of hot water and stir
Add a little more and stir.
Once it is thin enough to mix well, add the rest of whatever liquids you want. They can be hot liquids if you prefer. The cherry juice is not just for flavor, it helps pain.
Drink up to half right away. Sip the rest as needed.
