It looks like this virus is going to move through the whole family so I am really grateful for multiple toilets and Lysol. I am also grateful that we have indoor plumbing, period. I lived in the city limits in my childhood and I was about 6 before we got indoor plumbing. The town could only afford to run water around the courthouse and to the school a couple of blocks away. Only the handful of people that lived within that small radius had water/indoor plumbing. They did a little every year but the town didn't have a tax base to afford to put in a lot at a time so we waited our turn to get hooked up. We lived in a hilly area with a lot of caves under the area so wells were over 200 feet deep and did not have enough water to support a fully functioning bathroom and kitchen. Daddy had a bathroom built and had water run to the kitchen and bathroom sink and the bathtub and let me tell you, not having to go outside and pump water in the winter was such a luxury but we were limited to how much water we could use or we would run out. Baths were very shallow. I guess that is why when we got running water I loved to soak in a tub completely full of water.
Getting several blue dot days and several days with no sugar under my belt. I feel much better physically without the sugar. The boys made sugar cookies then chocolate chip cookies over the weekend and though cookies don't usually do it for me I love hot floppy cookies right out of the oven. I didn't eat a single one. Then a neighbor made some of those cookies we used to get in school made from peanut butter, Karo syrup, and Corn Flakes and brought us a big plateful. I loved those things as a kid and I loved the nostalgia it brought back. I did pinch off a dime sized piece and taste them and t brought back so many memories but that is all I had. I'm grateful that I could do that and also proud of myself.
Feeling like actually getting something done today. I have felt as if I was trudging through molasses so long and been in enough pain that I have only reluctantly done what I had to do around here. Today I feel like and am tackling some projects.
My husband got the attachment for the TV to make it come through is hearing aids so it can be muted. He still doesn't feel like going to the office but is bored so he is playing a game of some kind on the TV but I don't have to hear it all over the house today. With my ears infected they have been so tender and sensitive that just common noise has been painful, his TV and people talking to him have been excruciating for the past week. At times I felt as if my ears were bleeding or exploding from the noise/pain. I tried plugging my ears and that made me dizzy. This gadget makes us both happy today.
