Real time at Casa River.

.

So this is my life.

.

.

I elevate, ice, read, and groan every time I have to move. Not how I envisioned spending my favorite time of year.

The foliage is peak, the temperatures are blissfully cool and I’m stranded on the couch like a beached Beluga.

There are very few good things to report when you’ve torn your meniscus and damaged your MCL, but one must take solace where one can.

My husband feeling guilty for his mobility and finally installing the new blinds in the office? The ones that have been sitting next to his desk for the last 3 months?

.

.

My husband breaking the special order extra wide curtain rod for my Waverly valance after I told him to be careful because they’re tricky to take down? Because he has no patience for anything the least bit domestic and never thinks I know what I’m talking about? Because he was cursing a blue streak as he tried to tape it back together?

Solace for a couch bound whale wife.

Please excuse the 2 six packs, 5 bottles of wine and the jug of premixed cherry limeade margaritas in the corner.

My liquor cabinet is full… and Jeff Bezos can only do so much.

  1. You haven’t told us how you tore your womeniscus and damaged your mcl. Did you trip over a woodchuck or lose your balance trying to kick a red squirrel off your deck? From their perspective, it served you right, but I have nothing but sympathy for you (well, that and a chuckle or two imagining either of the above scenarios). ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. If only it were something that worth while. Apparently I aggravated my knee when staining the deck on all fours. Swelling and fluid set in which weakened the joint. The simple act of stepping off our kitchen porch step was enough to tear it.

  2. We have a large box of leftover liquor and mixers from our sojourn to Santa Fe. It’s still sitting on the den floor because we have nowhere to put it. We ran out of available storage room in this house somewhere around 2007….
