today – with the exception of being late for work – was a good day. not a pain-free day, but very low and i felt somewhat normal too. i even got in a workout during my lunch hour. after work, i went to the grocery story to pick up a few items, came home and cooked dinner. it felt great to be in the kitchen cooking again. i put the above dish together, along with fresh spinach and garlic bread. it was delicious!
