While the sauce for Paula Deen's Baked Spaghetti simmers on the stove, I thought I'd write a quick good/bad post. Real quick.
As I just mentioned Paula Deen's Baked Spaghetti, I should start there. It's good, really good. One of my favorite "take to new mama, bereaved family, general somebody-needs-a-pick-me-up (me)" meal. I thought I was going to be at the dance studio while it baked, but as it turned out, I was there early and home now.
Paula Deen's Baked Spaghetti probably has a lot of cholesterol in it, so I'll have to eat a small portion and fill up on green beans.
My stress test results from last week were normal.
I have no explanation for how I feel, which is still like there is a fish flopping around in my chest. I'm trying to eat more protein, per Jennie, and I checked to see if my very low progesterone could be causing it, but the gyn says no. So, I am going to have to put on my German and beat it.
Faith is enrolled in three dance classes, two Seton classes, and we have, or have purchased, all the other books we need to start school in two weeks exactly. Lesson plans ensue...I have two weeks.
Faith says the above good is bad. (She would never do school if given a choice. Except dance.)
My cousin Amy had her little girl today -- Margot Jillmarie -- weighing 6 lbs. 7 oz. by Caesarian section. That little stinker never did turn. Her middle name, if you've been a reader here long you'll know, is after her sweet aunt in heaven. My goodness, she will be well prayed for. Which will be good, because based on her before-birth behavior, she's going to be a stubborn little thing, just like her namesake.
I have nothing bad left, so that means I'm off to stir the sauce. Happy Tuesday. Oh, and it is so happy, God is good, all the time.

PS. A beautiful quote from St. Bernard of Clairvaux, whose feast day is today. My great grandfather's name was Bernard, and he is Amy's great grandfather as well.
“In dangers, in doubts, in difficulties, think of Mary, call upon Mary. Let not her name depart from your lips, never suffer it to leave your heart. And that you may more surely obtain the assistance of her prayer, neglect not to walk in her footsteps. With her for guide, you shall never go astray; while invoking her, you shall never lose heart; so long as she is in your mind, you are safe from deception; while she holds your hand, you cannot fall; under her protection you have nothing to fear; if she walks before you, you shall not grow weary; if she shows you favor, you shall reach the goal” -- St. Bernard
