Family time

We had a great family outing.  We went to a state park about a 2 hour drive away and spent the day.  We hiked, jumped rocks to cross the river and had a picnic.  While everyone else played on the rocks, I sat on the bank watching.  My balance was way off.  I had to use my cane.  Made me sad but I still had fun.

Dragon had to help me ALOT crossing the river on the rocks.  We both almost fell in several times but we made it.  The kids said I looked like a wet kitten.  Dang kids.  They video taped my crossing.  I looked twice my age.  And at 41 that IS NOT a good thing.

I got up this morning to fix Dragon breakfast and pack his lunch as usual.  He took one look at me and put me back in bed before he left.  He told me not to feel guilty and to stay put for the day if I needed to.

Looks like it isn't going to be much of a choice.  I feel rotten.  It is that awful bone pain I get in my skull.  NOTHING helps it.  Just time and rest.

How did he know?

There is so much to be done.  The grass needs to be cut.  I need to work in my sewing room so I get the dresses on Etsy.  Laundry needs to be folded.  The list is never ending.  Blag.

Oh well.  There is always tomorrow.

My vision is going wonky now so it is time for me to put the computer down and go back to sleep.  Hate days like this but that is what happens when I have done too much.  4 hours in the car and hiking with the fam was just too much.


  1. I sure hope you feel better. I am so happy Dragon recognized your needs. Remember it is okay to let some things go. Don't stress yourself with the house stuff. It will always be there. A day or two will not matter.

    1. I am finally dressed. My eyes won't focus enough to sew but I am going to walk. It is beautiful outside and that is where I want to be.

      Good news. I just heard from my book keeper. I don't have to pay this year. We even get a refund. That is a load off my mind.

  2. I'm sorry you had a bad day, Rose, - seems to have been something in the air - JAS & I both had migraines... must be all that stress-free life we all have, lol. Wonderful that your Dragon knows you so well. I hope you're feeling better soon.


  3. I hope you feel better and I'm so glad Dragon knew to tell you to take it easy!
