To add to the surreal ness of this month my husband is home. Since we haven’t taken a vacation in two years he accrued too many vacation days so took three weeks off. It is nice having him home and his weekend schedule extended to 7 days a week but it makes everything a little unusual.
He had a really bad cold and I think I have been fighting off the germs for the last two weeks. I am always tired and always phlegmy. Today I woke up with a sinus headache. Forgot to turn on my mini mister when I went to sleep.
Yesterday I went to what ended up being a very small Christmas gathering at the Cancer Connection offices. One of the new volunteers also does some sort of ministry. He recently lost his wife to cancer. So at some point in the evening we were talking about tattoos and I mentioned I received five new ones yesterday. A few minutes later he came up behind me and placed one hand on my head and one hand on my shoulder and prayed over me. I was startled but fine with it. I have always been open to anyone’s good intentions even if it is based on something I have no belief in. What do you think? Is it an imposition for someone to do that without my permission?
Life is chaos barely contained for me this days. I feel like if one thing goes out of whack we may descend into all out frenzy. Just keeping a firm hand on it for now.
I think I want to go to IKEA today, sorry Kates. We are going to buy a little convertible sofa or chair to make sure we have a guest room available upstairs and IKES has one of theirs on sale very inexpensively.
