So Far Today

I started a roast in the crock pot before I left for work. The hubs picked up a 2 pound pork loin at Wal-Mart last week before the ice hit, and we hadn't used it yet. I flipped through my new crock pot cookbook and found a recipe called 3 Packet Pot Roast that looked pretty cool, and somehow, hold onto your hats, I had all the ingredients in my pantry. Crazy! Things like this just don't happen to me.

So I was all proud of myself for getting that started and I headed out to load up the van for the day. I was getting my flavored water, my Vitatop muffin, Lipton Diet Iced Tea and a Lean Cuisine out of the outside fridge to take with me to work, and I noticed that the headphones the kids use for their listening therapy were still in the van. I was headed to the other side to get them..... when I took a spill and landed head-and-shoulder-first into the fridge.

I laid there crunched up on the garage floor for a few minutes, planning what to do if there was blood..... the hubs was in the shower and the kids were asleep.... so I thought I'd call a coworker to come get me to go get stitches.

That's how crazy I was being.

But turns out I'm fine. It's only been 26 minutes and I'm already a bit sore, so I'm for to take some Motrin. My coworker promised not to let me fall asleep for fear of a concussion. :-)

Oh no! I'm glad you're okay! So what were the 3 packets in the recipe?

Sasha said...

-packet of ranch salad dressing and seasoning mix
-packet of Italian salad dressing mix
-packet of beef gravy mix

mix these together and sprinkle on both sides of meat and add 1 cup of water and cook on low for 8 hours.

30 minutes or so before serving, add 2 more cups water and turn to high.

I'll let you know how it turns out!

Oh no, Sasha! I hope you're feeling better soon!

When I fell on my run a few weeks ago, it was similar--I lay there going, "Am I okay? Do I need to call hubby to come get me?" Of course I was fine (but sore!) and then I started going, "Hey, why aren't any of the cars stopping to make sure I'm okay?" I'm still a little mad about that....
