Alive and Almost Well

As you probably read, Lion has COVID too. I don’t know who gave it to me, but I most certainly gave it to Lion. It wasn’t intentional, of course. I spent a day or two feeling like garbage, but that may be because I was still doing quite a bit between the sale of the truck and camper and keeping the house running. Yesterday wasn’t so bad until I had to get Lion’s antiviral drugs. I just took it easy for the rest of the day and I’m feeling less sick every day.

Lion was certain he was dying last night. He’s always certain he’s dying when he has a cold or the flu. I’m not sure if COVID or the antiviral made him feel worse. Today, he’s still tired but he’s not dying. I told him to stay in bed, but he ventured into his office for a little while this morning. Once I do a few things, I’m heading back to lie down. There’s no reason either of us has to be up and about. Of course, we’ll need to pee and get food and drinks from time to time, but we should relax for the most part.

Every time I look at the backyard, I am reminded that the truck and camper are gone. I can’t tell you how relieved I am. We are no longer under pressure to pay for the camper, and we saved more because we don’t have to insure them. And, this is my bonus, I don’t have to drive them anymore. I didn’t mind driving the truck. It wasn’t my favorite, but it was okay. I didn’t even mind towing the camper. It was parking it in our narrow little driveway that annoyed me. Anyway, it’s nice not to worry about that anymore.

I haven’t heard about Lion being horny for a few days. It makes perfect sense. He shouldn’t be if he’s sick, but you never know with him. He’s a lot better today. For all I know, he’ll be looking for love tonight. He has a punishment waiting for him for leaving the shower door open. I was willing to overlook it, but he said I could just postpone it until we feel better. He “helpfully” moved the magnet over on the whiteboard. I’m still willing to forget it. The truth is, he’ll probably do something else before I punish him for the shower door. If that happens, I won’t add five minutes. It will be like the shower door never happened. As if, oh I don’t know, I overlooked it to begin with, which is what I wanted to do in the first place. Sometimes Lion can be stubborn. I think he forgets I can be stubborn too.
