Tonight's Supper...

Tonight's supper was oven baked chicken fingers, scalloped potatoes, glazed carrots, and seasoned green beans.

"You make it look so easy!" Rosa said of my cooking as we sat and ate.  I had to tear her away from the TV to get her to join me in the kitchen.

"I would never do this if it wasn't for you," I said. "Thank you."

Before Rosa and I got back together, I was having trouble with the basics of life such as grooming myself, brushing my teeth, taking showers, and fixing meals.  It was almost as if I gave up on living.  I had no reason to get out of the bed.  It is nice to have purpose again.  The shrinks and therapists would say I am co-dependent.  Probably am.

To some extent we are all co-dependent. Your meal looks delicious. I made barbqued pork sandwiches. They were yummy too.

Codependent? Well, if you are, its obviously working for you!

None of us is independent. We're all in this together. Independence is a myth spouted by therapists and people that psycho-babble. Love does not make you independent.

I think we're all a little codependent. Not to worry.

Now that's the kind of healthy food I like to see you eating! And yes, we're all a little co-dependent. No one is an island.
