Well, that didn't go as planned.
Yesterday afternoon we went over to the mall to see a movie and pick up some fixings for dinner. After the movie while Joe went to the washroom, I pushed myself over to the elevators and rode down to the level where the grocery store is and began pushing towards the store. I waited near the bottom of the elevator for Joe and then we went in to shop. I pushed myself through the store determined to give myself a real workout in my chair.
We got home and made a pasta dinner, sauce from scratch, and settled down to watch some television. We had been invited to a party in the building but it didn't start till nine. Given that I typically am in bed at 8:30 it felt kinda cool that we were keeping 'grown up' hours. I settled onto the couch comfortably snuggled under a blanket.
I woke somewhere near eleven. The televison was still on and Joe was slumped in his chair softly snoring. There is nothing so delicious as a sleep in front of the television. I wondered, for a mere second if I should wake Joe up, if we should try to make a few minutes of the party.
Then closed my eyes.
Somewhere near two Joe woke me and we made our way to bed. I'm guessing that New Year's happened, but it happened without us.
And I'm surpisingly ok with that.
