Christmas is still in force here at the Scraps household. Tree's still up, inside and outside lights are still up (but not on!) and there are still gifts in their boxes, waiting for someone to play with them. Seems all I've done is work and lie around in bed or on the sofa. The sinus infection left me so congested, I couldn't use my C-PAP for 9 days, so sleeping was a distant memory, and I think that's why it's taken so long to get over this virus thing.
But Friday night I found the right combination of meds and got my first night's sleep in over a week and wow, what a difference! The bathrooms are now cleaned, groceries were bought, the sewing room was put back together, Mount Washmore has almost been conquered and there was even some cooking done!
And then it snowed.
Thurs. night I was put on call, which was great for me, since I was so tired, but they called Fri., Sat, and Sun. to ask me to work. I felt really guilty saying no, but I had worked sick for 3 shifts, and was exhausted and the house was a mess. When I got up Mon. morning, I was so glad I'd said no. There was no way I'd have made it home until 3pm when the snowplows finally got to my road, and I have to work Tues. and Wed. nights as it is.
Tandi amused herself by attempting to prune the rosebushes for me.
But after sticking with me through repeated shovelings, even Tandi was losing her enthusiasm for the snow.So was I.
Then my little Halloween helpers came by and spent some time re-posing Napoleon Bone-apart.
Napoleon sported a Santa hat for Christmas; now he just serves to remind me where the edge of the driveway is.
Maybe on my next offday, I can get the cars taken care of, and on the one after that, take down Christmas, and THEN maybe I'll get to sew.
