Mendable

That’s the mindset I need to keep. It’s hard, though, when I feel so bad and am told the condition I have is, ultimately, fatal. However, life is, isn’t it? None of us get out alive. We are all mortal. And that’s enough of that.

It was 61 degrees in the house when I woke this morning. I got up, took my meds, turned up the heat and went back to bed. I didn’t wake again until 10:30. The bed hasn’t been made and I still haven’t gotten dressed.

Cuz came over and looked at the leak at the bathtub faucet. The hot water doesn’t leak until the cold is turned on. There’s no way to get to the innards to see what’s going on. I can’t take a bath in hot water alone. I’d be boiled alive or close to it. She said she’d get her construction partner to brainstorm with her and, possibly, come up with a solution.

DD called and we were on the phone for an hour before she decided she needed to hang up and fix something to eat. She hadn’t had breakfast yet and it was past noon there. One thing she DID do was plant garlic this morning.

Cuz came over again and sat down for a conversation. I’d already eaten supper (which was late for me). She said she had to go back to the house and fix their meal and that she had a headache. I remarked that I seldom have headaches but as soon as she left, one hit. It isn’t bad but I don’t care how mild they are. Headaches aren’t fun.

One redeeming thing about today is that the sun made an appearance. It was the first time in days and days. It was a most welcome sight.

This has been another day in the life. Tomorrow always follows and yesterday is always a day behind. I’m deep.

    Did you see the cartoon on FB of Charlie Brown and Snoopy fishing? The conversation went something like this: Charlie, “You know, Snoopy, some day we’ll die.” Snoopy, “Yes, but on all the other days we won’t.” We can live from moment to moment, and leave the rest to our Maker.

      Yes, since I shared it, I did see it. And what you add is very true.

    I didn’t know headaches were contagious, and over the phone at that!

      Cuz and I weren’t on the phone. She was here. Maybe if she’d stayed, I wouldn’t have had the headache. It went away, anyhow.
