Random Thoughts on a Day When My Nose is Still Stuffed but I Feel More Like A Human Being than I Have in Over a Week.

1. This is the heliport at Regions Hospital where Jenny was admitted when she was sick.  Do you see the black shadow on the heliport?  That's my reflection in the window as I took the photo.  I like it.  The reflection makes me seem like a giant!  It also makes my waist look slender.  Even though times get really tough, I have decided that I have to find the good in a situation, even if it's the simple ability to sleep at night.

2.  Pixie and the kitties have been good through this ordeal.  They are pretty much a pack now.  Pixie still has no idea about her size in comparison to the kitties, but Marvin and Walter have learned to move quickly when Pixie runs into their space.

3.  I feel like I'm ready to take another nap.  I don't recall sleeping this much in a very long time.  Sleep seems to creep into my thoughts a lot lately.  Maybe I need to take care of my sleep habits more?  Not sure.  I try, but right now, I don't seem to have any choice. 

4.  Have I ever mentioned how much I love Pixie?  She's really the perfect dog for this time in my life.  Spike could never have endured this ordeal like Pixie has.  He was too full of energy, and he didn't like anyone else taking up my time.  He was also very protective of me, that is, after he barked then hid behind me.  Spike and kitties would not have ever gotten along.  I'm glad I have Pixie right now.

5.  My winter plans for repairs around the house have been stalled.  Things that I had hoped to be finished with by now haven't even been started.  Oh, well, I just hope I have the energy to get through all this.  My energy gets zapped so easily anymore.  It's hard to divide yourself into so many pieces and expect to function as you used to be able to do when you were younger.  Right now, I'm tired.  I don't plan to do  much today.  Wish I had more energy, but that will come back soon, I hope.

Rest is good for your soul. Get a bunch of crap from the store - and of course, some good meals. make a choice to hunker down for a few days and sleep and do nothing! Sleep is good for the soul and to revive yourself. Just write some future blogs - watch movies - eat popcorn - hug Jenny - love animals. In those days you WILL revive.

Sounds like a good day to call and have food delivered. Lots of food so you have lots of choices. Life does get in the way of our plans sometimes, but it's the sticky times that help us remember how precious life is. We need those reminders. There's nothing like that feeling of good health after going through a rough patch.
