He has been resting a little.


Tonight, a brief update. My beloved crawled into bed while I was out with Young Master Duke tonight. He probably slept for 4 hours. Any rest he can get is a blessing right now.

Duke and I ended up on the patio for a bit, and he thought it was a good idea to tangle himself in the lilac bush out front. Sighs. It’s what it is. I believe a rabbit was involved. While Duke is a hambone, he is not the smartest of dogs.

I’m still working on slowly moving the dungeon out to the garage, and clearing it for a bit. I want to be able to ‘get away’ when the winter winds blow. My beloved and I have been tap dancing on each other’s nerve, and any time I can spend away is better for our serenity.

Yet, my plans for a camping trip are started. I have some medical in South Dakota next month. I’m thinking and making lists. We will see what I need to work on yet. If my husband is healthy enough, I’m possibly going to make a run for the border.

Other than that, it was a quiet day. I probably should grab a shower, and hit the sack. Have a good night. !Hugs all. -L

A wee update


Morning again all, I have been writing more ‘usual’ blog posts for the mornings this week. But thought I’d give you a bit of a mini.

This one is on coffee. Since his surgery, he can’t stand long enough to make coffee, so I have been doing it. We ran into a snag with the first pot.

Welp, I like my coffee darker than my former step-mother’s soul. He likes his weaker than an herbal tea. He wasn’t expecting to have to use a fork to chew his first cuppa I made him after the surgery.

He is doing small things for himself. Which is a good thing. It goes in fits and starts, but it is a beginning.

We had the war over the dishwasher. Apparantly, I don’t overstack the machine to the point that nothing gets clean. It still needs to be run twice, but this time in separate loads.

He is still doing the mansplaining, but last night he thanked me for helping him. Small things help.

I suppose I better get the dog out, he’s the dog right now. A blog post on Thursday explains what’s up.

Hugs my friends. -L

Not enough coffee


Morning all. The Mister is demanding again this morning. It’s part and parcel of the whole marriage thing. Young Master Duke is on the edge of my bed, wanting attention. Shortly, I’m going to crawl in with him and catch a nappage.

I’m still working on the loom knit thingamie in between helping the hubs. I have no clue what it is, other than a comfort in stress.

This morning, I woke, grabbed his urinal and headed to the necessary myself. I could tell he was doing some more for himself while I slept, which was a good thing.

Last night, getting him in and out of bed, I did an oh sheet and I’m going to be hurting again for awhile. The good news, I start PT next week. The bad news? Sighs. He knows that when I help him, I’m going to be in severe pain for a few hours. We can’t get home health aide people. It’s what it is.

Meanwhile, he was a bit demanding this morning, and I went and sat down for awhile. I’m still here, at the desk. I’ve made sure he has tea, and his urinal. I’ve checked on him, and he has snacks. I even gave him a good morning happy banana (they are still fowl evil things.)

We will be okay. It’s just going to take time.

!Hugs my friends, take care, I love you. -L
