This is according to my dear, sweet husband. We have had our marital trials, which I will spare the gentle reader of listening to the typical goings on of a rocky start to a passionate romance. At least, that’s my take, but it’s not for the subject of this blog.
It’s nice to know, still. It’s good to think that my overall well being is perceived by someone who I love and who loves me to be a marker of my love for him. It really shows he cares besides some of our difficulties. This shows he is sincere in his caring. It’s something I will always remember when I’m thinking of being lazy and not doing the things I know I must in order to be well.
I didn’t sleep at all on the night I wrote last, then I didn’t eat the following day. I didn’t eat until I got home from my husband’s house and church. I felt cramps today. My dear husband told me it might be from not eating. I didn’t understand at first because we had just gone to lunch. He was aggravated that I didn’t understand. He was trying to help me, but I was being thickheaded. He really does care. I see that.
After lunch, he helped me get a bit of groceries from Target (they now have a larger food section). I got gala apples, organic baby greens, a package with green and yellow summer squash, hot salsa (didn’t realize it was so hot), two kinds of whole grain organic smaller pasta, plus one that is spaghetti or angel hair, and a tri-colored pasta with some organic vegetables for coloring, Hunts diced tomatoes (two regular, one fire-roasted; on sale), sliced white button mushrooms, some yogurts for him, organic unsweetned soy milk, sprouted organic tofu and also green beans and maybe some other vegetable.
For dinner, I’m thinking of a measured amount of organic whole wheat pasta that is in a “bow tie” shape (forget the right name) with some fire roasted tomatoes, dried basil, garlic powder and some of the summer squash and mushrooms. This sounds good to me. I was planning to have an apple before to help control hunger, provided added nutrients, ensure I get enough fruit in my diet. I will have another apple if I get hungry later in the evening to prevent snacking on less nutritious things. I don’t really have any of those snacks, anyway. Oh, also, I can have some onions with the pasta dish. I have some yellow onions that would go nicely. This sounds like a good dinner, but it’s not time.
Right now, today, I’m just going to clean my house, create a sanctuary for a sound and well life. I’m going to enjoy my living space more this way.
My husband is talking about the possibility of moving in together again. I said we should move to another place in that case. We can do so with him living with me. I’ll find a job, too. I need to keep my head about it and make it a smart move for both of us. This means taking care of myself so that I am in a position to contribute to the relationship well. It also means being patient with both of us and being understanding. Health is about all of that, interpersonal and internal life. It’s all involved in creating a whole person.
