On the Mend

Below is a ridiculously long list, in no particular order, of what happens when one is forced to be still in the endlessness of convalescence, and therefore watch movies. We've discovered Red Box, where for $1, one can rent from a wide selection of movies. It was great to have a relatively cheap source of entertainment. Of all the movies watched in the last three weeks of unwellness, the one that was the most powerful by far was The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.

There has also been ample time to mend (sew by hand) pillows, shirts, skirts, blankets, etc., practice the ukulele, and read a silly book.

Mostly though, I'm tired of being tired. I'm sick of feeling like I'm going to drown every time I cough. And honestly, I'm looking forward to resuming work type activities. It will happen soon enough....I'm definitely on the mend.

Regarding Freaky Friday, Joy has promised that if she and I ever switch bodies/places, she will not pierce anything on my behalf. I thanked her.

What about Netflix? You can download movies to your 'puter . . . bet Reese can hook them up to your TV for better sharing. Once when somebody was very sick and needed a lot of rocking, I watched Sugarland Express. It was awesome to see how Stephen Spielberg used S. Texas as a backdrop.
