Shaved my legs and lost 10lbs...

Shaved my legs and lost 10lbs...

"I shaved my legs and lost 10 lbs."

I laughed when a comedian said that on tv.

if you've been following this weeks Adventure. You know what's been up. 

anyhow. 3 near solid days of sleep and I feel human again. 

decided to shave my legs and put on some make up. Not something I've done in months. 
same with stepping on the scale.
And I laughed remembering that comedians line, because apparently it had come true.

not to worry, i can afford to lose about 30 more lbs 😉

anyhow,  as a caregiver, everyone tells you you need to take care of yourself. Sometimes you even think you are.

then you have moments when you realize you actually weren't....

so, do something small for yourself today 😎 even if it's "just" an extra few hours of sleep.
maybe not makeup, it's bloody sticky hot out.... 

have a great weekend!
 
Have you hugged your dog today?

Laika57‍  Wow.  Congratulations, well done, good etc etc.  🤗

 Sometimes I think we get used to sleep deprivation and only when we do sleep do we really see its importance.    The world looks so different after a good night’s sleep.   How is Ian?

The dog must be happy too.

Sleep well tonight.

Margaret MCoaster‍ ,
I read a scientific article once that claimed you cannot catch up on sleep. Gotta laugh at that.
the world is so different when you're not exhausted... I even found my humor again 😜

a friend sent me this, because it made her think of me...

ian isn't answering his phone. Asleep most like. The nurse says he is fine, eating well, good blood sugars.
I expect I won't get an update on the infection and other stuff til Monday.
I'll know he's better when he calls me 10x during the night. .. so I'm working on catching up on sleep beforehand 😜

the dog is eating giant ice cubes with hot dog pieces frozen into them - I'd say "happy " is a good descriptor 😂

Yup. Doesn't get much better than self care and laughter.
