LAZY DAY



After weeks of illness and days of running around like a chicken with its head cut off, I took life easy yesterday.  We ate simply.  I took a nap after lunch.  He played hours of computer games.  I took a bath.  I even, with some coaching, got out of the tub. 

It was a little scary coming home from the meeting tho.  Pouring rain, and we were inside the cloud too.  Seeing the headlights against the rain and fog was an interesting juxtaposition.  A warm house and bed awaited us.  We aren’t used to that after years of living without heat.


                                                                    


  • Himself:  Getting ready to be 29 again.  Driving north in the rain tonight.

  • Herself:  Needd to work on my shoulder strength before the next bath.  Today: Laundry, groceries, cooking, dishes, and doing the receipts at the store.

  • Gratitudes:  That bath the first in forever.

    2. I have never posted on this and maybe someday I would be brave enough...but I lost a high school classmate who was very, very, very, smart. His best friend spent money trying to get him straight when alcohol became his best friend. He could have been a rocket scientist or the person who found the cure for cancer. He died in the alley of Denver after drinking himself to death with his a partner (also an alcoholic) who really did not understand he was gone. I so wish he could have found that life to come home to a warm bath and bed!

      1. These are very important words. Perhaps you can make them into some form of poem. I have friends lost too. Hugs to you

    3. I might have liked to try out that tub when I was having 6 baths/day just about a week ago.

    6. What a pretty bathroom. My technique for getting out of the bath is difficult to explain but involves putting a towel on the rim of the bath and taking my weight on my left forearm, gripping a fixed handle with my right hand - a quick prayer and Bobs your Aunt Fanny.
