I immediately got control of the walker, went to my bathroom, took a bird bath and washed my hair. After a little make up and combing my wild mane, I felt like a new person. I apologized to my husband who has dutifully taken care of me while I was whining and carrying on like a blubbering baby.
For the first time in my life, I have real sympathy for people on a walker. I've tried not to take the sides off furniture and door facings, and I am working on a cute bag to button on the walker to transport stuff. I've also learned that 3 days without looking at yourself in the mirror can cause heart failure. I almost didn't recognize myself..how could my husband still love me...roughly, I looked like a potato sack that had fallen off a wagon and was run over by an 18 wheeler.
Today, is the first day I've sat at the computer (until now, I have whined by phone on Facebook.) So the first thing I typed is this blog entry. I have been reading this month's Southern Living magazine and a few quotes caught my eye. I will share a few and then end this post, because I have been warned to take it easy by the
1. "A real southern girl should own an iced tea pitcher and a deviled-egg plate".
2. "Good manners will often take you where neither money nor education can." (both by Aaron Deal) page 107
3. "When you want a room to be "warm white", meaning not too yellow or too peachy or too anything else, then go with Benjamin Moore Ivory White (925)." (quote by Lindsay Bierman page 8)
and last but not least
4. "To be a woman, you have to look like a girl, act like a lady, think like a man, and work like a dog." (by Leah Chase, page 110).
