Another Ramble from Beyond Uber
I pride myself on being fairly healthy and a fast healer. As a result I have a tendency to jump right in and attempt to get back to normal right away. In the spirit of normalcy, today I went with my mom to buy a bunk bed for Duncan.
He has a bed of course, but Cal is outgrowing the crib and will soon need a twin bed of his own. Rather than buy another twin bed, Mike and I decided that Duncan might like a new bunk bed. The one I picked has a twin bed on top and a full-size futon bed on the bottom level. I liked the fact that you could get some of your floor space back by keeping the bottom bunk as a couch until it was needed.
I thought Duncan would be more excited about the new bed but when I told him he was hesitant to give up his old bed. "But Mom, I feel like my bed has its own soul. I don't want a new one." Who knew beds could have souls? I sure didn't. I'm pretty sure that when he sees that spiffy new bed all set up in his room he'll be happy to give up his ensouled bed.
I also walked to school today to get Duncan. Yep, Cal and I walked much slower than I usually do but by golly I made it there and back. Of course, now I'm paying for it. I'm pooped. I mean, falling asleep in the rocker pooped. Sad little old lady dozing over her bowl of wheaties pooped.
I'm ready to pop my two percocet and drift off into the slightly loopy sleep of the very, very, very relaxed. Did I mention I really adore percocet? Don't worry. You won't see me on Oprah as one of those suburban housewives addicted to prescription painkillers. But I'm sure gonna enjoy 'em while I can.
