|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.
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.
