Sigh...it's hot today. Not Nashville (God I'm dirty and moist hot) but hot none the less. Also, because I have been cursed with original sin, I feel like a great big pile of shit. All the plans I made today have been trashed and we're keeping it local. The kids were having a friend sleep over tonight but he's sick so we got nothing, which is fine with me.
Dinner? Fuck if I know. I'm just glad I folded all those clothes last night because I'm not capable of doing it today. The kids are fed, the house is cleanish and I have my eye on the prize as far as the things I should be doing. I'm not getting any closer to completing them but at least I can see them from where I sit, doubled over in agony.
Yesterday should have been a warning for today but I paid no attention. The good thing is that even as I feel terrible, I can see how beautiful it is outside, even through the blazing sun. The kids played outside for a little while so I could make my phone calls. New window for the Odyssey in the AM so that's out of the way. I was there with them too but as they played by themselves it was nice to be alone for a little while, even if only a few trees away. I love my babies more than anything but I need some time alone. The surgery and the healing and then the trip to Georgia. We've been attached at the hip for a solid month and it's wearing on me.
So, this is me, today, outside and upside down. River saw this photo and made me promise to take a photo of her in her boots. Simple pleasures.
