Y’all ‘member when I showed off my beautiful house with the stunning view for the first time?
First there was ohhhing and awwwwing. Then there was the “have you lost your minds” comments? Okay, so that last one was mostly our kids. “You guys aren’t aging in reverse! Those stairs are gonna kill you!” (Spoiler alert no one has died)
Well, for the first time I think I’m ready to tell my children that they might, perhaps, may not have been exactly so incorrect. (pffffftttt we ALL know I’m not REALLY going to admit squat!)
So, Covid has hit. Yup, slammed into the side of the house and oozed through to the insides.
Covid plus MS? Ohhhh soooo not a fan! It’s hit The Husband with the full force of all those nasty little germs. He is now bed bound. Ummmmm well, this sucks!
The stairs. Yeah I am no longer a fan!
Having been through my Mom being bed bound certainly did prepare me for this. Some of the tricks and equipment (which THANKFULLY!!) I saved (even against naysayers that we would never use that again! HA! I TOLD YOU SO!!). Little things that make my job easier.
Except the stairs. Hating the stairs.
Poor Alice, her last week here and we can’t leave the house. HOWEVER! Alice has been amazing! She took over Bear duty. (A little side note here. The dog will immediately do her business for The Husband. Never for me, we have to walk around the property…. do ta do ta do….. walking, sniffing…. do ta do ta do…. walking, sniffing until finally we have finished our business. The dog does her business WICKED fast for Alice! WTH?!?!)
Alice has helped with clean up, cooking, delivering to PopPop.
With all her help, get this…. her parents won’t let me keep her?!?! Selfish much?!?! APPARENTLY a month is long enough?!?! Pffffftttt I say!
The point of this post? There really wasn’t one, except maybe to tell you I hate stairs.
Have an amazing day Little Peanuts.
