A quiet day with some reassurance.

I think it doesn’t matter how old you get, your mom is still your mom. However, as the only single woman at work, I seem to have a multitude of moms and everyone of them has been worrying about me and telling me to go to the doctor. Today I gave in and did just that.

I got told that yes I have a horrific cold and that it’s probably a continuation of the one I had in December:( However, I also got told that my ears aren’t infected ( I’ve had ear problems my whole life so when they aren’t normal even I get worried), and that as long as I got lots of rest there was no reason I couldn’t go back to exercising😀. I also got given some kid decongestant so I’ll be more comfortable at work:). In the past I’ve had trouble with adult medications. Overall, I’m happy with my results. I think the no infections put my mind at rest most!


I tried making crackers today for the first time! There were called In A Pinch Polenta Crackers in my Allergy Free Cook Bakes Bread Recipe book. It was super easy! Bring two cups of water with 1.25tsp of salt to a boil, stir in one cup of corn meal until it’s thick like porridge ( I think mine was too thick so I’ll try adding more water next time), then turn off the heat and add 2tbsp oil, and spices. I added 1/8tsp cumin, 1/8 tsp chili and 1/8 tsp garlic. Spread the mixture onto a greased cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 30 minutes. They were so yummy and will make a good after school snack tomorrow:)

I had thought that making crackers would be so difficult and they really weren’t! One thing I did learn though was that I should have scored them as the recipe called for as then maybe I would have gotten nice, uniform crackers.


This evening I got back to exercising. I adapted this workout I read on the Vicki Lynn Fitness blog this morning. I didn’t want to kill myself so I toned it down a bit, but it still felt like a good workout and it certainly felt good to move again. I think my body also got a workout from my coughing fit halfway through too🤣


I have spent most of the day quietly reading another book from NetGalley which I should be able to tell you about tomorrow night as I’m off to finish reading it😂

I am looking for a suggestion of a new classic to listen to on Librivox if anyone has one:)

Have fun!

  1. glad you went to the doctors and that it is just germs. I am the same way… .I won’t go to the doctors until I can’t stand it anymore (or I’m already convinced it is something else). hope your body decides it is over being sick and is on the mend.

    I have never made crackers before… I’ve never even thought about that concept. would be interesting to at least try

    1. Ya my doctor sees me about every 2-3 years, LOL.
      I am just munching on the crackers right now and I;m pretty impressed. I’d like to make them again and see if I can get squares so they’d be useful.

      1. It actually made me feel slightly better that I don’t keep getting sick, but have just had a lingering thing.

  2. I bet you were surprised when the doc said no infection, but what a relief too! DHi is going on six weeks; he doesn’t feel bad, but just can’t get the hose turned off!

    1. I was surprised, but happy! Doc says I’ve had the same cold since I was sick in December:( I’m hoping i can run it out of me!

  3. Ha ha! I have the same problem with “moms” although, mine like to all yell me about how I should be getting married and having babies…. Ummm… No.
    Your crackers sound really yummy!! I’ll have to try them out!

    1. LOL the ladies at work go crazy when a youngish guy walks into the building! You have no idea how many times I have been sent on fools errands to the office so they can see us together.
      The crackers are good, but they went a little soft overnight so might be best used right away!

  4. I suffered with terrible ear aches and infections as a child. My dad started giving me a zinc supplement and I have not had an issue in over 40 years. I am glad you went to the doctor.

      1. Read about zinc in food and supplements; it boost your immune system, but is found in higher concentration in our ears. Cool, right?

  5. So glad to hear you are on the road to recovery!! I never have thought about making crackers?? Your recipe sounds yummy. Take your time coming back full force exercising.

    1. No I’m just going to download the app today and hopefully I can just use that for a bit. Spent too much yesterday to buy a new watch this visa bill😂
