Okay, so I’ll admit it. This challenge hasn’t started out the way I planned. I had to work pretty hard to have fun on Day 1, and Day 2 was even tougher. You see, I’m stuck in the middle of a sandwich… an ooey, gooey, responsibility sandwich, and it has seriously impacted my fun quotient.
After taking a hard fall last week, my elderly father was hospitalized for a couple of days with some broken ribs. Being 79 and unsteady on your feet is a tough gig by itself, so the social worker and the doctors thought it would be best for Dad to come home with me for a while.
I love him to the moon and back, but he’s a high maintenance kind of patient. That means I’ve spent more time with my nursemaid responsibilities than I have enjoying myself…or working, for that matter. But yesterday I did squeak out a little fun in my day. My hubby and I made some amazing enchiladas together. Of course, I could have done it myself – and the timer would have gone off much sooner – but the fun was in the process! We spent an hour in the kitchen laughing and enjoying each other’s company. And of course, the end result was positively yummy!
So that was my fun for the day… what was yours?????
