Tim Says I'm Not Nurse Merry Sunshine

Okay, so maybe I'm not but I'm pretty much all he's got so take it or leave it buddy! HA! He keeps saying I'm the whiniest caretaker he's ever had! Well, okay, I'll give him that too maybe....

But, man, taking care of him and this big old house, myself, one whiney kitty that still insists on waking me up starting at 5am and then again and again till I get up and feed her the squishies (her medicine and yummy wet cat food), trying to work and keep up with etsy listings and sales and post office runs, grocery shopping, company coming (Dad arrived last night so I dashed to the airport after work), impending birthday and mother's day dinner/gifts, watering plants, taking out loads of trash, laundry, three meals a day, up and down the giant staircase, wah!!!!!!!!!

And did I mention the 9 gallons of water I had to lug to the basement and then one by one they come back up? And the 12 packs of Mt. Dew that go down, come back up...I've squished more empty cans for recycling in the past week. We have a certified Mt. Dew addict living here!

I'm sure it wouldn't be quite so bad if I wasn't still regaining strength and stamina myself from the gallbladder surgery! I'm just worn out and hurting so much!

Well with the recruit in from VA, I'll have some back up help for a few days at least. Tim goes for MRIs of his hip and lower back today and I'm not sure when we'll get those results but he has a follow up with the doctor next Wed.

Hi, Elizabeth! Don't overdo it! I know everything you listed is important and has to get done, but if you don't take care of and nurture yourself, you won't be any good to anyone!! Breathe! Relax! (try!)
