my girl had a gimpy leg yesterday. no one, including her, has any idea when it happened but since she jumps off about 213 things a day it’s likely it occurred one of those times and didn’t really set it until she slept.

couch day

anyway, we spent the day laid up on the couch. well, she did. i was relegated to snack servant. but i have to say it was a pretty excellent day. blankets bundled on the couch, candles going in the dark horse grotto…we started with a pile of books then movie, then books, then movie. you get it.

so this got me to thinking of this idea that i really think would work. it would get me through winter and save us money:


i could do days like today all winter long. just lots of movies and books and talks and laughs and snuggles. i wasn’t even as hungry since we didn’t use a lot of energy. maybe we could drop down to only 2 meals a day! we could lower the thermostat bc we’d just stay bundled under blankets all day. let’s do it everybody! just stop going to your jobs in the winter. really. it’s ridiculous. just stop it.

can we do this revolution? let me know what you think…

  1. I hope she’s healed up now. Glad you enjoyed the restful day. I recall a day with you after dr. appt. and shots that left you lame for the day. I took day off and just held you all day and knew that after you recovered would probably not ever occur again. Happy to see you could make into a fun time. We have an awesome fireplace just perfect for hibernation. So, as winter proceeds keep in mind that Grandma and Grandpa welcome hibernators. Grandpa has a huge woodpile,library is just a few miles away, plenty of VHS videos, snacks galore, daily hot meals, and blankets in excess.

  2. That sounds so nice. To be honest, I kind of abuse the “sick day” hibernation thing. Like, the second someone’s nose starts to run or they choke on their milk, I’m closing the curtains and renting The Muppet Show.
