Hello ! I didn't mean to post and run but I was checking in after my shower.

I'm about to eat dinner, pork chops, home grown organic mashed potatoes and chives and a kale/spinach stir fry.



Gonna wolf down some food and I'll be back.

Respectfully,
~meathead

Look....

If you spontaneously fall asleep,you can't complain about day old cookies...

If you want them hot and gooey like the rest of us you need to stay awake bro!

Hi Night!

Hey Mr. Meat-head!
I just read your last post (am reading from the end going backwards) and what you said was really lovely. This place is indeed an oasis due to the wonderful people who we call Shed family.

My day started with a plugged up toilet (it's been having issues for a while) ...a panicked call to my landlord who I found out is staying at the hospice with her sick husband (before he passes)...and ended up with me just having tea and toast for supper.

After waiting for the plumber and some rather stressful messages from friends this afternoon I couldn't be bothered to go get any groceries. So I am here now, in my happy place...and glad to see you guys.
😃

Awww, that is the saddest GIF. It's ok, we have fresh cookies. Here. Hands NB a plate of cookies. What would you like to drink with that?

Glad to have you home with us Jacy! Shall we sit outside and hang out with the faeries and pixies and other magical creatures? We can watch the squirrels scurry about collecting their acorns.

Fotgot to say, sorry about your Landlady's Hubby and your plumbing problems.

Also...get some peanut butter for protein or beans of some kind. I worry about you. You need to look after yourself. You look after others, but you need to look after yourself too.

Aww thank you sweetie.

I think I will sit outside another time...can't pry my butt out of this chair now that Im comfy.
I appreciate your concern.
I just wish the guy upstairs wasn't cooking something that smells so good tonight.

*steals a couple of NB's cookies*

I'm almost caught up in here now. It's good to see people posting, weekends tend to be quiet in Shed land.

Nobody is going to pry my butt out of my chair either.

Hey, send and e-mail or PM and let me know what kind of foods you like. I might have a cheap and easy recipe I can share. Made especially for us tired and sore old ladies. LOL

That is going to cost you dearly

Oh hun, I appreciate your offer.

The thing is...I can cook. I cooked and baked every day for over 30 years.
But now there is no motivation because I just don't care.
And it's been one year today since this all started, so I realize today that now I have to start trying more.

Nearly all the other women I've met who are now alone...admit they don't cook.
It's a big issue regarding self care, and it's not just women. A lot of men who live alone don't bother much either.
But I am going to try to eat healthier because I realize that it matters (and I have to stop making excuses).

Thank you.

Great.

Now because of what I just posted above...I have to let you take the cookie.
That was lousy timing.

You can have the cookies. I didn't bake them. Nestle did.

I love to cook. I just usually don't have the time with my work schedule. One day off and I'm dog tired.

I need to eat healthier and give up drinking. I really want to be who I was 4 years ago.

We're all trying to do better.

Jacy and NB, you guys are cute and made me chuckle.

I know you can cook Jacy. I was thinking about cost savings, but yeah, I get where the lack of motivation is a problem. That's why I try to choose easy stuff or like you and Sheye, I hit the frozen food Isle. LOL Even there, I try to choose the lower sodium and healthier ones as opposed to the sodium laden ones that are so bad you might as well drink ocean water.

I usually procrastinate about getting things done, so today I feel good because I actually cooked and did laundry and sorted through paperwork that has been hanging around.

I need to eat healthier too but damn...between self control which I don't have much of, and all the bad influences around me...I think I'm doomed. As I write this, I am dreaming of chocolate peanut butter cake. OMG!

NB...I don't think I would want to cook on my one day off either.
Geez that doesn't leave you much time to have a life.

Night...I started eating cookies and snacks in the evening and I went for comfort not nutrition. So I will try to find healthier snacks but I can see me just getting more peanut butter cookies, lol.

I know a lot of us are wanting to do better but we can't beat ourselves up all the time.
Life is hard...cookies help.

Am I allowed to ask what you do for work?

You don't have to say if it's too personal.

I'm being nosey like Night now!
