I started the day yesterday with great intentions – I was going to get groceries, have my quiet time and tackle my closet…but at 6:50 a.m., Hubby walked into the bedroom…he had done something to his back or rib (we’re not sure), just getting dressed and he was in a lot of pain. By 7 a.m., I was in his car (I don’t like driving his car) on the hunt for a 24 hour drug store for back pain medication. Fortunately the traffic wasn’t too heavy yet, and I found what I was looking for at the second store. Have I ever mentioned that I’m not really a morning person? I like to hit the snooze bar several times before I crawl out of bed, and I prefer a quiet start, lost in my own thoughts. I was dressed and out the door in under 10 minutes!
And I know I said that as part of my mid-life crisis, I was going to go to new places…but I didn’t mean a new chiropractor office…
It would be SO easy to go on a tirade about men when they are sick…but I’ll resist. I could end up being disrespectful to my Hubby. Today I was a chauffeur and a nursemaid, but a (relatively) patient one because I know how miserable it when it hurts to move or breath!
I did get groceries at 2 different grocery stores, I did finish putting away the laundry, and I did cook a lovely pork roast dinner. I also got to take a nap between 6 and 7:30 in the evening! I don’t know what made me so tired! As I’ve quoted many times before, “Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans” (John Lennon)
It’s a new day and I still have good intentions to tackle the challenge that is my closet…it may take more than 1 day, but so be it – I’ll take it a day at a time!
