Well, today (Tuesday) was absolutely beautiful. Not a cloud in the sky, no breeze, about 60 degrees....a perfect spring day. I woke up, and Elmo meow and Freckle meow decided that I needed kitty love, so Elmo stood on me and pushed his nose into my face until I gave him kisses (he's the only cat in the world who LOVES to be kissed) and Freckle did the pat-pat-pat with her paw, to make sure I was awake....
Then they both snuggled up with me, purring, and I could feel that Charlie was by my legs and someone else was on my feet and I just laid there and smiled. Lately I've had so little time to enjoy them, that sometimes I forget why my animals are important. Then I got up and "ducked and clucked" (that's the terminology for feeding and watering the chickens and the ducks) and it was great to see all those birds enjoying spring, too. I spent longer than I should, just watching and smiling.
This started me off feeling very productive today. So I set up an appointment for my mom, called the assisted living place to let them know, called my mother in law, did a little cleaning (and I mean a little!)....it was good!
DH had two appointments today, one for blood/labs and one with the jobs people. I don't know how either of those appointments went, because I was on my way to work by then. So I called home, and asked DD if DH was home. "He's outside". I asked if he was out smoking. "No, he's....um...he's outside splitting wood." I could not believe my ears. I said, "splitting wood?" "Yeah. Should I go get him?" Of course I didn't have her go get him. The tree that I presume he was working on fell during a storm last June!!!! And it has been sitting there ever since. I absolutely cannot believe that he is out splitting wood. I could believe that he was outside, it was a beautiful day. But doing something like that????
Could the Depakote be working?
