Virtual Coffee {5}

Photobucket



Hello friends, I’m late posting today cause it’s been an insane day. I fear I may sound whiny with our coffee today, so if that’s going to irritate you and you want to leave I understand. No, that’s not true, I will get upset everybody needs a good whine every once in a while! Plus, I’ll let you whine all you want next and I won’t roll my eyes at you once. Promise.

As most of you know (and if you don’t read here, and here, and here, oh and here) the husband went back in to the hospital yesterday morning. He started his six days of chemo today and will have the transplant next week. What this means for me, apart from a lot of heartbreak (incidentally, tomorrow’s post will be unnecessarily depressing, I’m warning you so you can steer clear if you’re pms-ing or tear-prone or just having a bad day) is getting used to a different routine.

I need to get back in the groove we had last year. Just getting his meals to him today was a challenge, I need to start planning menus again, so I know what to buy for him and I have to start cooking in the mornings again, so I can bring him his lunch and dinner on time and I need to keep on top of his laundry and generally making sure I keep his needs met, cause he doesn’t need to worry about stuff like running out of underwear or having to eat the totally disgusting hospital food. It’s no big deal, we’ve already had practice, but today it all threw me for a loop for some reason and I spent the day running around town like the goose in a wild goose chase.

So anyway, I totally need this coffee, though as I’m writing it’s actually 11pm where I live, plus it’s decaf so no chance of it keeping me awake, the empty bed should do it. Sniff.
Ok. All whined out. Thank you for listening. I may not put out my best work this week, but we should be back to our regularly scheduled programming by next week at the latest so don’t lose hope!

God I’m depressing today… go visit Amy, she’ll cheer you right up I’m sure!

Oh, also, you’re turn, go ahead whine away!

  3. Whining is perfectly fine. Although I find that sometimes, wine-ing helps with the whining. x

  7. @I'm So Fancy Ideally wine-ing should take precedence over whining. I'll give it a try and let you know!

  8. @Barbara Although my self-defence course seems to be a better and definitely less annoying release, must keep this in mind!
