Well, I did it. H and I ventured out, in public, with that stupid chair. Actually, I was blackmailed into it, Soul told me if I didn't she would be a Grinch this year and Soulkid would have no Christmas at all, and it would be on my head, if I didn't go, and I couldn't live with that! Seriously, the reason for the threats is that i have not been out of the house other than work and Thanksgiving since I got the chair, I was too embarrassed to be seen in public "like that". On the other hand, I am tired of being stuck in, and H certainly was ready for a night out, so I swallowed my pride and we went to the casino that we used to hang out in. I have to say that I had a good time. There were alot of questions, because I know so many people there. All of them were asked with concern, but people were already concerned because the last few times I had been there, it was obvious that I was not well, and that was weeks ago. I was really very surprised---and touched, to be honest. It was not as hard mentally as I thought it would be. Physically, that's another matter. We were there just a few hours and we went early and left early, but it was all I could do to get back into the car, and I felt that way after wheeling! I am still continually surprised at just how "sick" I really am, I can fool myself into thinking that if I don't walk, then I am okay. The truth is, my whole body is sick and while walking remains my focus for the surgery, I need to get well all over, too. Well, enough about that.
Today, I still have hopes of getting the decorations up, but they are not nearly as strong as they were. Sitting on the couch with my book sounds really good as well. I am not sure I am up to even directing the whole Christmas operation, and there are still a couple of weekends before I have to get it done. We will have to see.
It's cold here this morning, damn I hate the winter weather. I also don't like the heat. How is that for complaining? Is there a place that has continuous fall or spring like weather all year long? That's where I want to go....but I imagine that's where everyone would want to go! We still have a little snow on the ground, it seems awful early for that.
I have got to get a little cleaning done---just some dusting if nothing else. I can manage that, and the kitties will appreciate it. They are leaving their "stamp" of disapproval on everything, as they are walking on the tables and I can see their paw prints in the dust. How sad...it makes me want to write "dust me" on them!
Have a good Sunday, everyone!
