Days gone awray Awry
I started out sleeping too late- what is it with these human bodies that need sleep and nourishment.? If only we did not need these items I would be so much more happy because I could get twice as much accomplished and save some money too!But until I figure that part out - I still have to have some of both.
After we ate I did chores and we headed to the mill for foods. Back to the house and thinking that I might just get to get everything caught up and go to bed at a decent hour so I would be ready for my doctor appointment tomorrow. Wrong answer. As I was munching on a green pepper and cream cheese sandwich some of our kids arrived to work on a car and the grandbaby was ready , willing and able to play.
By the time the day had ended DDL had succumbed to a quick nap with me and baby on the floor on a quilt with baby sleeping on my tummy - (now I know what Tummies are really meant for) Baby had fought the brave fight with Mr. Sandman -but he lost the battle. Of course I have discovered that the floor is a Lot harder than when I was in my 30's -OR in my 40's -Or even in my 50's. Talk about live and lean - At Any AGE!
They both got about a 30 minute nap before the guys came piling in and woke everybody up. I continued to sit in the floor until they got the baby ready to go home and while their heads were turned I very ungraciously used the chair to drag myself up out of the floor and pop down in it. Most "unlady - like"! LOL
Babies are just SOOOO much work and they are terribly hard on people who have back problems -whether they are in their twentys or in their sixties. But that little sweet smile can just light up the world for you - no matter what age you are. :)
By then bedtime was shot anyway , but the next challenge was to be with the computer! Dumb thing -it has decided to just freeze up any time it wants to and no amount of choking the daylights out of it will make it behave itself!
