Living on a road that turns to thick mud every wet season, means plenty of staying on the home place.
For my DH, that means sitting all day every day in front of TV,
and all his activities like eating, drinking and uh, TV watching
are done from his chair. I am glad he gets up to use the bathroom
and not do that there in the living room!
I move about much more, due to cooking, hand washing the dishes, cleaning things in the house, laundry. But I do get bored with that and TV blasting all day every day.
Last night, I stayed up after he went to bed, and did not go to bed until 3am. I got caught up on reading, watching internet shows I can't watch due to no TV usage allowed by DH. It was great!
So today was the first day standing outside on my cement step with two cats in attendance ... OUTSIDE! YES!
I could hear the TV plainly, even outside, but the fresh air was very wonderful.
Rain is coming for Saturday, so the mud season of Spring is now on us!
I do long for a paved road, and I can dream of it.
So, though I am not doing well on the losing weight,
I am maintaining my house and seeing a light at the end of the tunnel with warmer days to come!
