The Rocky Road To Recovery (Follow-Up)

March 24, 2015

After I wrote what I wrote yesterday, I found reason to be glad for my self-honesty about my desire to “lounge about” in post-Illness recovery for a little while longer.   In part because it inclined me to pace myself in my return to work and other exertions, which has proven to be not only wise, but necessary in staving off embarrassing “falling down suddenly” instances.  (Which I have so far successfully avoided, by the way.)

More importantly though, my self-honesty was enough (if only barely) to stifle a rogue parental impulse to tell my son he’d been watching too many cartoons lately (the word “damn” may have been involved in that thought), and it was past time that he got off the couch for a little while.  (The word “damn” was definitely involved in the last part of that thought.  I wouldn’t have said it, mind you, but I’m just draggy enough to be irritable about being draggy, and that’s making me irritable in general.)

This was important because not long after I made yesterday’s entry there was . . . let me put this delicately . . . “physical evidence” that my son wasn’t feeling 100% yet either.  Nothing dramatic or requiring spontaneous cleaning of anything, but “physical evidence” none the less.  (And that’s as far as I’m going to elaborate.)

So we’re all going to be pacing ourselves for a couple of days more, which in practice shall mean extra cartoon time for my son, and extra introspection time for me about when exactly did I become the type of person who stared pairing the words “damn” and “cartoons.”

I like cartoons!
