“Morning people should be forced to milk cows.” -J Kellerman in Monster

Tuesday

JoshuaI was sleeping peacefully this morning just before 7:00 when I heard a small voice say, “Grandma.  Why is Jessie down here?”  After opening my eyes enough to see that it was still very dark in my bedroom I answered, “Jessie’s not down here.”  Then I heard another voice.
  “Yes, I am.”The Wink
After dealing with that interruption I was again attempting to sleep when I heard the phone ring.  By the time I made it from the bed to the desk the ringing had stopped.  Then I heard my daughter’s phone ringing.  “Ah – must have been someone looking for me who has now called my alternate number.”
EdI started upstairs to find out who had called and met daughter coming down.  It was the nursing home.  Ed had taken another fall early this morning.  He scraped his right elbow and injured one of his ankles.  When I called later to see how he was doing I was assured that he was not in pain and doing well.  I stopped by to see him just before supper time.
As usual, I found him sleeping.  I woke him up, kissed him hello, and asked how he was doing.  The look on his face suggested he didn’t know me, so I asked if he knew who I was.  “No,” shaking his head.  I explained that I’m his wife, Carla.  He still didn’t seem to recognize me, ‘though he was content to hold my hand as I sat there beside him.  “So,”  I said, “do you let all the ladies kiss you?”  He contemplated a minute, started to grin, and said, “Yes!”
When I left Ed I stopped at WinCo to pick up a few groceries.  I was in the store for 30 minutes or less.  When I got in the car to drive home, my feet started to cramp.  So, driving home I had pains in both feet with the toes pulling off into strange directions where toes were never meant to go.  It was the perfect end to the day.
