The Day of Rest
Saturday, November 14, 2009
Some naysayers, (yes, confirmed doubters), were waiting to see if if I really rested yesterday. The answer is........................ yes.........................so
rt of. LOL.
No, I did not hang upside down like a smelly sloth while green moss grew on my stinky fur and fruit flies swarmed around my filth ridden torso....................... But I didn't do any extra work yesterday either. (Sorry sloths but the words that natives use to describe you are "sleep'", "eat", and "dirty".) I fixed 3 meals, spot cleaned the pet cages, swept the floor, did my decluttering, took out the compost, fed the wildlife, ran the dishwasher, did a load of laundry, burned the trash, and picked up the mail. I also watched some TV and wasted time on my computer.
My brother called yesterday and my dad, who has been in 3 different hospitals continuously for the past 2 months, was transferred to a nursing home. It's not what any of us wanted but it is the only choice. And the good thing about it is that Dad will be less than 55 miles from where I live and I'm familiar with the rural area and feel comfortable driving there. There are decent restaurants in the area and good shopping.
Today we went and got our H1N1 vaccines. Our arms felt like they would fall off and my hubby felt sick for a while but we are glad to have it over.
Hubby cleaned out the firepit and started to winterize the boat. We went to a couple of hikes but we were tired.
