A Most Unusual Day

Woke up feeling poorly.  My mind may never be right again as I don't expect to ever resume treatment for my illness, but also, stress from having broken a molar Saturday night has left me tense and anxious. It's normal for me to be on the verge of tears upon opening my eyes each morning.  Many times, I wake up feeling as if I cried during sleep throughout the night.  It's exhausting.

So seemed strange and don't know why he did it, but when I woke up this morning, put on my glasses and grabbed the remote control to turn on the tv to watch the Live! with Kelly show, I saw the hubs carrying his pillows and sleeping bag from his room, downstairs. He came down to watch the show in the living room with me.  Hardly spoke a word to each other, but there he was in the same room.   He even stayed in the room when the show ended and I switched the channel to CNN.  I tossed him the remote, and he flipped it to a show he watches.  Most unusual.

Usually, I don't see him for any significant amount of time until after 3:00, then it's only for a total of about a half hour, including dinner.  He keeps to the bedroom.  I rarely go upstairs - mainly for a much needed shower. That's our new normal.

By 11:00 am, the hubs was downstairs again... this time to fix some lunch. He heated leftovers. The kids are home for Presidents Day, so it was nice that he did that


You know what I miss most about the old days... being able to do stuff.
