Christmas Dinner. Thanks everyone for helping out. Extra thanks to Simendea and John.
Shelley and John: Happy 34th Anniversary. Mwahhhhh!!! Kiss. Kiss.
Shelley: Mmmm. This tea’s delicious. Thanks.
John: You’re welcome.
Shelley: A piece of cake would be nice, don’t you think?
John: Yes dear.
Shelley: Lovely. Whoops I forgot my phone in the bedroom. Do you mind fetching it for me?
John: Not at all.
Shelley: Thanks. I can…almost… reach… my computer.
John: I’ve got it.
Shelley: Thank you. Oh oh the battery’s down to 5%.
John: Let me grab the plug for you.
Shelley: Thank you honey. I wonder what’s on TV.
John: Why don’t we watch Manchester United? I PVR’ed it so I could watch it when our company left.
Shelley: Or we could watch HGTV.
John: We sure could.
Shelley: No. No. I have a better idea. Why don’t I have a bath while you watch football?
John: Are you sure?
Shelley: Positive but I might need a little help with the taps. I do not want to fall again.
John: How’s the temperature?
Shelley: Perfect. Thank you. Before you leave do you mind moving the shampoo lower?
John: No problem.
Shelley: Sorry. And the conditioner.
John: Of course.
Shelley: How about bubbles? I love bubbles. How can anyone be depressed in a tub full of bubbles? Not that I really need a mood boost. Which is surprising, right?
Shelley: To be honest, I did cry after my fall,
but mostly because I was embarrassed to be taken off the hill in a tobaggan. I wanted a ski-doo. People think the worst when they see a toboggan.
And I knew 18 people were coming for Christmas Eve supper and I wouldn’t be able to do anything. But I needn’t have worried as family and friends stepped up throughout Christmas. Everyone was amazing.
John: Everyone “was” amazing.
Shelley: Others would have lost it if their doctor gave them a ticking off for waiting 5 days to have an x-ray, and warned them to stay off their broken leg or else risk having the bone pinned. But I didn’t.
John: You sure didn’t.
Shelley: And despite delaying our trip south for three weeks I’ve remained up beat. In fact, I’m amazed how little my life has changed since I broke my leg. Aren’t you?
John: Yes my precious “Princess down but not out.” I am.
Shelley and John wishing everyone a Happy New Year!
