A busy Tuesday

Yesterday was busy. Tuesday is P's day off work. First think in the morning, she had a haircut scheduled. When she walked in the door after her haircut she said we had to hurry to get out of the house because they were sealing the blacktop driveways and were almost to ours. Also we had to return a number of movies to the library by the time they opened or pay the fines.

Rush around; rush around and out the door we went. We made it to the library with minutes to spare only to find that they were working on the library parking lot. So P parked the van and on her crutches, rushed around the corner of the library to place the movies in the night drop box. As she was getting back in the van, they opened the library doors. However because she had placed the movies in the night drop box before the library doors opened we won't have to pay any fines.

Then it was off to the JcPenney store to buy me some new pajamas. We left there and went to the local Costco store. It must be quite a sight to see P and me shop. P uses her crutches to get to the store and then uses one of the stores electric carts to do the shopping. We found what we wanted there and went to the Sam's Club about a mile away. At Sam's we found the items we were looking for, however we also found out that two of the items were cheaper at Costco. So we stopped back there on the way home.

By now it was lunchtime so we decided to stop at home to unload the van and get some lunch. When we arrived home we discovered that we could not park on the driveway because it had been resealed. So we parked at the end of the driveway and I drove over the lawn in the wheelchair carrying a box of perishable items that needed to go into the refrigerator.

After lunch P and I reviewed the shopping list and headed off to the local grocery store. Once again P used one of the stores electric carts and I followed in my wheelchair. When we were finished there we decided to stop at the local Cold Stone Creamer for a small treat of ice cream. Boy did that ice cream taste good, I had small bowl of Peanut Butter Cup Perfection and Pam had a small bowl of Mint Mint Chocolate Chip. The price was a bit high but OH WAS THE ICE CREAM GOOD.

When we arrived home we discovered that the mail had arrived and the next DVD of Bramwell had arrived. So P and I put away everything and watched some Bramwell before making supper.

After supper it was time for me to use my nebulizer and go to bed. I was asleep before 8:30 last night. It certainly was nice to do something other than sit in the den.

Everyday life must be a real challenge for you both with crutches and a wheel chair.
Bless you.

Everyday life is interesting here and it is a real challenge. Here at home P stands and takes items out of the cupboards and I carry them to the table in my wheelchair.

P says that it is a real eye opener about what being handicapped means. While I am not happy that P hurt her knee, I am glad that I am able to help her.
