I am up early too, Toots!
Beth, I hope your Hubby's mom feels better soon. Prayers to the both of you and the family.
My BF, Mark still has this NASTY cold/flu--whatever it is. This has been going on for three weeks now. It started out as a cough, then moved into his chest, an eye infection, and now he's feverish, coughing likes he smokes 3 packs of cigarettes a day, and is nautious. I almost feel like I shouldn't go to work, but I have to.
To make a long story short. I was going to make chicken noodle soup for dinner, but he's going to have the canned variety for lunch... so that is over-kill. Instead, I put a beef roast in the crock pot
with sliced potato and celery.... no carrots
. That will have to due.
