Tonight I made a simple soup: Cabbage, fresh tomato, red potato, onion powder, vegetable broth, water, no added salt. Unfortunately, my unwarranted pride over this mixture went just before the proverbial fall. I was holding the large, white, plastic dollar store bowl in a way that I thought would allow the hot contents to be viewed through my webcam by my husband. I tried to restart the laptop, but it was too late. Instead of the usual screen that would precede the Windows 7 logo, it was a lime green, then it would not start at all. I may have taken out accident insurance on this one. We shall see when Christopher goes with me to Best Buy. Right now, I am just updating from an app for WordPress from my phone.
In other events, I had my top wisdom teeth out on Monday. The top right is still sore, and I am limited in food. I had not had many fresh vegetables since then, so maybe this was why I got so excited abouted cabbage/potato/tomato soup.
Today was the first real visit of the new year with our son. It was also the last one for my mother and Christopher. There had been some time just before the parental rights hearing but not substantial.
I can feel Christopher’s sadness when I talk to him. He feels his son will never want to know him as he gets older. I hope his feelings do not cause an unintentional wall possibly built by Christopher himself. I am not sure my place — if any — in their relationship. I just always hope and pray for the best as always.
