I always use a cart, even though I only want one or two things. I always end up buying more. I can walk without it, but I do better with it.

When I had my heart surgery, we stopped on the way home from the hospital so I could get my hair cut. I didn't want to have to deal with my hair while I was recouperating. They told me I was not to go out for the first 2 weeks, but they didn't say I couldn't stop anywhere on the way home! LOL

Yeah, when I was discharged after my heart attack we went grocery shopping on the way home.

We are going to wait to go out tomorrow, since I am waiting for news on one of my meds.

Now is nap time...I'm starting to fade away.

Eek! Make sure you supervise the sorting. If you can get away with it, tell him to put everything in cold water and not too hot in the dryer. You don't want your sweaters coming back shrunk to a kid's size or all the elastics saggy from heat.

Double Eek! Shrek will have to go to the Laundromat! No heavy lifting for PF. I would get out a sharpie and some masking tape, and label the bags of sorted clothes with explicit instructions, from inserting the coins, to how much soap, to temperatures.

Beagle's schedule is a bit off after being at the kennel. She felt it was time for dinner, and helped herself to half a pound of fresh Italian sausage that I didn't get out of the grocery bag in time.

Oh, I'll go to the laundromat with him...but he has to do all the heavy lifting.

I also get to shop with him, with him getting anything I point at and buying it for me. He says I have to say please at least twice.

I think twice might be a bit much....

I won't, I know how far I can walk before I feel tired. For the Costco run I might use a store scooter.

That's what I was thinking...

All those "Thank Yous" I used in the hospital, I might have to replenish those with a couple "I'm sorrys" thrown in. I was so out of character...

Soooooo cold and we're coping.

Brought our darlin' doggie, Harley, inside to suck up mommy's and daddy's lovin' and warmth.

We have the Bose set up to near "blast" level listening to the Righteous Brothers and The Beach Boys 50th Anniversary. Lots of feet tappin' and singing to the lyrics!!!!!
