So, it's cold outside. I live in Minnesota, so when I say cold, I'm referring to sub zero weather with a wind that freezes your face! The Gov of this fine state has called off school for Monday, something that hasn't happened since the mid 90's!
With the snow flying and my body chilled to the bone (after getting groceries), I decided that today was the perfect day to make homemade Potato Corn Chowder and Spaghetti Sauce. These are two things that I have never attempted to make. Oh, and don't worry, I don't plan on serving them together.
I couldn't help but smile as I chopped veggies and measured out spices for nearly two hours. Back in the day, it was all I could do to make Hamburger Helper! Plus, in weather like this, my muscles would become to spastic to do anything other than sit. I love that I enjoy cooking for my family.
Now that my cooking is nearly done, I can get started on the laundry that is waiting for me outside the bedrooms. It is a blessing that I can do what I want, when I want. It's colder than heck outside, but I grateful that it's cozy warm in here.
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
