And a Nice Nap Was Had by All

Dear John,
 
Jethro & his mom
I've spent most of the day tending to the fibro flare, which means doing as little as possible. I got up and tried to get ready for church, but it was one of those days that I hurt too bad to tolerate clothes on my skin, so staying home was a kindness for everybody. When I finally got up, I put on my softest lounging pajamas and a bandana.
 
I slept a good bit of the afternoon. Jethro can always tell when I don't feel good, so he was right with me. Actually, he was right on top of me. For some reason this dog isn't satisfied when he's lying beside me; he has to be on top of me. I think it's the protective instinct of the German shepherd. He does the same thing when there are storms - he has to sit or lie on my head. It's all about protecting me. Today I managed to get a picture of it. When I got up later, I found the cats taking naps on the bed. So you get to see a photo gallery of your little family sleeping.

There's good news from the tournament. Today Kentucky played Wichita State. I don't know if you've followed their season - they're undefeated and were the first seed overall. And we beat them. That's right, our young team got it together and unseated them. I was so proud of our boys! Duke was defeated in the first round by Mercer - a 14-seed beating a 3-seed. I was fully expecting UK to fall, too. But we pulled it out and won by 2 points. Now we play Louisville, and that's always an adventure. All of Kentucky has to declare whether it bleeds red or blue. Around here, all the blood is blue.

That's about it from here. I got my lia sophia party finalized and submitted. There were ten orders and two bookings, so I got to double Gloria's hostess credit, and that's always lots of fun.. I have two parties booked for April. Everything I earn will go toward the VISA bill, since I had to put last fall's eye surgery bill on it. That's what comes from not meeting my deductible until the end of the year. Now my deductible is almost $2000 less, so I shouldn't have this problem. It will most likely take me all this year to pay off last year's deductible. There's just no getting ahead, is there? I'll be thankful to stop falling behind.
 
I believe I'll get all the furbabies together and put us all to bed. I'll try to take it easy tomorrow, too - the rest of the week will be busy and I need this flare to go away as soon as possible. I need to get the taxes finished, but I'll have to see how I feel in the morning. Right now Cat Stevens is singing about looking for a hard-headed woman, and I'm remembering listening to that with you in your dorm room on weekends while we studied together. You had the great stereo with the 8-track and quadraphonic speakers. I just had a record player. Obviously I had to marry you for that stereo system! But that wasn't the only reason.
 
Adore you,
Joan.
