Couch-Bound

As I mentioned day before yesterday, Beth is couch-bound (which sounds like a great band name for agoraphobics). She's not happy about this. Pissed would more aptly describe her state of mind. That and bored. See, she doesn't do sitting around all that well but in an effort to avoid surgery, she's willing to give it a shot.

The last two days have been all about juggling. Juggling school drop off and pick up, juggling baseball practice, juggling chores. Lots of juggling. I guess what I want to know is how any of you single parents manage to pull this off. Sure, my wife is immobile but I'm not single and it's still hard. Hats off to you.

I can't believe I did this to myself and have to just sit around.
Speaking of which, sit back down and let me fold the napkins.
I'm an invalid not an idiot.
I think you got that the wrong way around.
Oh. Yeah.

Meanwhile, any of you know a good maid service? I'd try to clean but I'd do it wrong.

Sorry to hear that Beth is laid up. Hope she heals well and quickly!

Say, did you know that your senior picture made a Chive list? Spotted it this morning when I was noodling around the internet. It's picture 20 in the list below:

Don't know if you want to do anything about it, but I figured I'd bring it to your attention, at least!

Good luck to you both, it's not an easy road, but it's all worth it in the end.
