Prep Time 25 Minutes

I always thought of myself as an above average person.  Pretty much when it came to anything except a few choice activities like bowling, singing, and entertaining little kids. Those, I pretty much suck at.  Now, living constantly under the influence of cancer managing drugs and their side effects, my measuring stick needs to be recalibrated.

For example, when reading a recipe that says prep time 25 minutes, total cooking time 1 hour 15 minutes, no way is it going to be 25 “Kimmy Minutes” for prepping food.  Lately, I start prepping dinner around 2:00 PM.  By 4:00 PM most things are prepped and I’m ready for a rest.  After a nice soak in a bubble bath, some stretching, and maybe 40 minutes of brainless TV, I’m ready to begin making dinner with SW who has just come home from work.

I am not suggesting I am below average now.  I am just accepting that I have a few more challenges or obstacles than the average person.  Those impact nearly every activity I do. Except for perhaps “looking good”, that activity, from what others say, I excel at.

    no question about it … the hurdles (challenges or obstacles) sure do look higher. Patrick

    I agree 100%. Some days I feel like “look how far I’ve fallen.” Some day I’ll be courageous enough to post about it. 😉
