Feels like Cabin Fever
Sunday, August 05, 2012
I've been in the house since last Wednesday afternoon after lunch with my WW girlfriends. That's a full 3 1/2 days and it's getting expensive!! Last night I called to purchase a recliner for my living room and two flat weave rugs for my kitchen for a tidy sum which will be on a deferred payment basis. The chair is a Wing chair push back recliner that looks really easy to get into and out of. It's very attractive and doesn't look like one of those big grandpa chairs that I already have and can't use because I can't get out of it w/o help! The rugs, well, they were on a half-price sale and it will take two, end to end, to cover my awful looking kitchen floor. The chair was also on sale.
I think I've been in a challenge mode, which many of us self-motivated Sparkers seem to get into quite often. Let's say my challenge was to see just how self-sufficient I could be from my home and computer, with this weather being almost intolerable for a person in a wheelchair and other older-type humans. I already do all my food shopping with a grocery delivery service which I love, do my prescriptions by mail, and have a busy telephone and computer for non-physical socializing. There comes a point though where I CRAVE human companionship. So today I will go to church whether it rains or not.
I would say my experiment/challenge taught me a few things, while there is still stuff I need to explore. I will need some one to assemble some parts of the chair, and to bring the boxes in after they've been delivered. Maybe I'll post notes for the Parcel post to knock on my door and they can bring the stuff inside. One thing I have learned is that the strategy for meeting the challenge develops one step at a time, one day at a time. Same as our weight loss... one meal at a time, one day at a time!
