Oddities of motherhood

Hi, i'm a 26 year old face of pain. I have fibromyalgia and RSD. I can't stand or walk for long. So needless to say, cooking for the holidays is a trip. It took me 2 trips to the grocery store to get everything. A cake mix bag exploded all over the kitchen, i left to box of baking chocolate on the stove so they turned into soup, and next time i decide to make icing from scratch, give me a good swift kick in the rear to remind me what it was like doing that. my son licked most of the cake mix off of the counter, then drank the chocolate and talked about the icing for an hour. After cooking for six hours, i'm not sure which pain was worse, the one in my body or in my brain. Next year i'm just going to order chinese.

Two thumbs up to your undying optimism and all the efforts at the holiday cooking!  You're officially my hero today! smile

I'm sure your son had the best Thanksgiving ever (chocolate soup? yum!).
