Today while purchasing new mower blades at Tractor Supply Co. (TSC), I saw this elephant and could not resist. I was shocked at the price of the blades! Sixty-nine dollars. And let's see, that is three times since John got sick. Oh Well, over and done with.
Again this morning, I was off for a nap. This time it was a two hour siesta rather than yesterday's three. Maybe my body is healing.
Many of you suggested that I hire someone to mow for me. As I read that to John, he said to me, "but that is your alone time, your decompression time." I was thinking the exact thought.
We have always had property large enough that it called for a riding mower or garden tractor to do the mowing and I have been the one to mow. I was a stay at home mom when the girls were young. When John got home from work I hopped on the mower and had my "alone time." I did not hear the ringing phone, or one, maybe all the girls wanting my immediate attention. I was in my own world.
With the present stress of being the care giver I will give up many things, but not my special on a machine that makes enough noise that I cannot hear anything else.
To prevent any more mishaps, all rocks and tree stumps will be market with little flags. Right now the grass is short enough that I can find and mark them.
Today was John's first outing to the grocery. I let him out at the door and he found a motorized shopping cart. When I came in, I wiped it down to eliminate viruses and bacteria. Off we went to do the shopping.
Now, how is that for a day of recovery? I still feel so tired....almost as if I've been drugged. I think that just maybe, I am sleeping too much, so will try no nap.
We reduced the price of the house $8,000. We will see if that brings us any offers. In one way, we want to sell quickly, but in another, we do want to get a decent price for the place. We do not HAVE to sell and can be patient with this new price point.
OK, all you naturalists out there. Each morning, this is what is blooming in our mulch. A fungus, very fragile, beautiful! When I first spotted them, I thought someone had dropped some carrots. The fungus spring from the white mass to the right of the ?.
God bless you all....thank you so much for your prayers! Please keep them coming for John, for me and for the sale of the house.... Not asking for much, am I????
Love you all!
Not a very exciting blog tonight.
