It’s such a tough balance, because I hate David being sick. The thought of him in pain (even just the discomfort a cold) makes me so, so sad.

This is where the balance part comes in, because there’s a big part of me that also loves taking care of him. Getting him a Red Box, making sure he drinks lots of water, serving him breakfast in bed – it’s all super fun to play the nurturer. (While using an insane amount of hand sanitizer to attempt to not get the same bug.)

This lightened up crock pot thai peanut chicken is what I made today, while doing lots and lots of cleaning as David posted up in bed and watched Captain America. Great nutty, fresh, savory flavor – for sick or healthy days.
