A goose and gander thing? – About two months ago the beloved husband fell over with the kitchen chair. One minute he was sitting at the table and the next he was on the ground sideways still sitting on the chair. After suppressing my intense urge to giggle, I asked him what happened and he didn’t know. I assumed he was being a klutz. Our chairs have wheels and it’s on a different carpet than it used to be so the feel when you roll it is different. Yesterday I fell over. In the same chair! Now I know it has nothing to do with being a klutz. Probably. I was trying to roll in closer to the table and flup I was on the floor. Sideways. Still sitting in the chair. It’s funny how something is so much more real when it happens to you.
So what’s the date? – We are getting kitchen work done in October. It will be a messy six week job. All appliances will be taken out. I’m both looking forward to it and dreading it. I want to be as prepared as possible with take-out menus and slow cooker ready. Somehow we will need to set up a temporary kitchen. But wait, will they be here on October 1st or the 31st. Contractors rarely are on target with their start dates. Stay tuned for this saga. I can guarantee you there will be posts generated from this experience. Any food suggestions welcome!
The fear – I started driving yesterday. After my accident I have a healthy dose of fear running through me. I am driving the beloved husband’s minivan with seems huge compared to my smaller SUV. So far so good and I am grateful that every time I hit the brakes they work.
People therapy – I had dinner with some friends this week and it was good therapy. We caught up with what’s going on in our lives and there were plenty of giggles (which still hurt!). Sometimes just a spot of human therapy does the trick especially when you can’t get pond therapy.
Speaking of pond therapy – I’ve missed the pond this week. My “creek” walk is a bit too far at this point so I miss the water therapy. I hope the new owners did not take it out and are enjoying the flowers and critters.
So how was your week?
