I’m not going to pretend that my situation is anything unusual right now. I suppose that half the country is suffering cabin fever along with my wife and me. I didn’t work any this week, so had no real reason to be out, except to break the monotony for my wife. Still, we managed to get out about every other day. Today was one that we didn’t, so we’re both a little bored.
If the four wheel drive was working on my truck, we might have gone out anyway, but it isn’t, and it would be stupid to risk getting hung up for no reason. We’re starting to get a little low on a couple things, though, so we may go out tomorrow, IF the state ever plows the road. They haven’t been across the ridge since this last snow started over 24 hours ago. I reckon they’re down by the edge of town, keeping all the city-slickers happy.
I have some things that I could do upstairs, on my other computer, or downstairs in the basement. However, that would entail “neglecting” my wife, and she wouldn’t look kindly on it. Over the past few years, she’s lost interest in the things that used to keep her busy, so she now considers me and her TV the providers of her entertainment. It can be a difficult and aggravating burden to bear at times, but what can I do; she’s put up with me for 32 years! Maybe we can go to the Chinese Emporium tomorrow and she can get her exercise pushing a cart around for an hour or two, while I sit in the truck and discuss politics with the dog. (NO, I’m NOT crazy, the REST of the world is crazy!)
We’re supposed to get freezing rain tonight on top of our snow, so I’m praying that our electric won’t go off. That would put us in a REAL fix. Well, guess I’ll quit neglecting my wife and go watch a little more TV with her. Baduh, baduh, baduh, that’s all folks! (I’m fine, REALLY!) © 2015
