*Let me apologize in advance for any whining or self pity expressed here this week as I take care of Hubby and two ailing elderly folks, the neediest of which is NOT the man who just had his foot sliced open and sawed on.
I’ve had plenty of opportunity to dwell on things in the past couple of days, especially while I was waiting at the hospital, and random thoughts came to mind.
1. The delicious taste of cubed cherry Jello with whipped topping in a school or hospital cafeteria cannot be replicated at home.
2. A hospital’s legal counsel would probably advice a nurse against admitting to a patient’s wife that the patient was accidentally given a double dose of morphine, no matter how much the patient’s wife laughed at the husband’s behavior.
3. If Charlie Sheen falls in the woods, and the media doesn’t show up, does anyone hear it?
4. I owe my mother-in-law a debt of gratitude for keeping me in frequent conversation with God.
5. A sure fire way to motivate you to eat right and exercise is to try on swimsuits when they first hit the racks in February.
6. There is no joy like accidentally discovering in your office cabinet a Ziploc bag full of Reese’s cups left over from a recent marketing activity. Joy, joy, JOY!
7. Living in the Middle East probably sucks.
9. The need for a new appliance or expensive car repairs is directly proportional to the amount of income tax refund you receive.
10. Seeing two patches of daffodils, a handful of crocus and four yellow dandelions in bloom during a midday run sure gives you hope that all will eventually be right in the world and in your life.
