I am rather proud of myself today. Ron is sleeping he has to do a four in a row 12 hour shifts at the hospital. He is on his third day today. Ron will then do nine days in a row, something I am upset over but have no control over either. James is also sleeping he is doing 8 hour shifts at the bridge toll booths.
So I tried to stay in bed with Ron this morning as we like to do that. However my legs kept cramping so bad It was too painful for me. I would get up and walk to get the cramps out, and then get back into bed. I realized that was not fair to Ron , even though he did not complain. So I got up.
After playing on the computer and really trying to get my massive emails under control, listening to music and having fun I realized that neither Ron nor James had done the dishes. Now to be honest Ron had stayed up a few days ago and done the really big heavy stuff and most that were left were thing that would go into the dishwasher. But I put some music on the IPad and went out to the kitchen and filled the dishwasher and then manually ( that is a really sad word in today’s time isn’t it? ) washed all the remaining few items. Ron had said he would get up to do christmas later as I had had such a bad night. I couldn’t sleep, got up at 12 to eat, and then went back to bed, slept until about 4:15 AM. I was awake the rest of the night. SO he wanted me to stay in bed, but as I said the muscles were not going to allow that.
Ron did something this christmas I asked him not to. He got gifts for us. He got some for James, he got a gift for James girlfriend, and he got gifts for me. We have an agreement we only exchange cards on christmas and I got him two , one from me and one from the cats ( they ask me to do that, but I often mess up their message and then they feel obligated to either bite me or damage something. ) However this year it seems to be important to him, he is really thinking his time on earth is short and he has been getting extra life insurance and other things. I feel this is silly but it is his way of showing love. So I am going to accept the gifts with good grace and show him as much love as possible.
Everyone be well, have a grand time doing what ever you do this day. My best safe wishes for you all. Hugs
