A Day Off




He slept very well.  Now he’s full of meds again but grumpy.  He apologizes for being a grumph, but I sit behind him letting his back be a wall. 

I’m taking the day off.  The trip book is finished.  Pages on sliding pages of plastic covered prose and images held together by screws whose threads don’t match.  I’ve cleaned all the orts from that away and feel a bit triumphant.  I have presents to tag, the house to tidy, and a mountain of my own clothes to take to the store. 

Did I selfishly say that I was taking the day off.

Poor George. David is also grumpy when he is unwell. Hope they both get better sooner.
Me too. I am having terrible time with my back today. I tried to cut my toenails this morning before my back warmed up and pulled a muscle. Dianne

Ooooh that's such a lovely photo!

Sorry he's not feeling well. I hope he'll be on the mend very soon.

Sounds like you deserve a day off...you have done so much since your recent trip.

isn't everybody grumpy when they are unwell?
We all need the odd day off - or three.
