Whining

😫 I don’t feel good, but that’s no excuse. I’ve made The Craftsman annoyed with me. I didn’t make it to church, I just do not feel good. Joints and muscles hurt, I’ve got a headache, and I’m tired and dizzy. (Little Bear didn’t get there either, but he only turned off his alarm for that extra five minutes that lasted more than two hours.) Anyway, today was a celebration honoring everyone who has been in public service anywhere, dead or alive. The Craftsman called it a Memorial service and I objected. The American holiday this week is for veterans. People who are still alive and have been or are  in military service. Memorial Day is in May.  His attitude, as he was dashing around the kitchen getting his lunch ready, showed me my observation was off. I apologized, he said he knew ‘it was because you don’t feel good’. I came back to the room and am using up iPad battery by whining.

I’d curl up back in bed, except my glucose is a bit low. (Another reason for headaches.) I’ll wait til everyone is out of the kitchen and find something. I’m walking a bit like an old fashioned pinball game at times, challenging and intriguing at the same time. Thankfully, the house doesn’t have too many things to run into. I’ve not gotten bruises since leaving home with all the carrying I did up there. Little Bear put some things I couldn’t reach away for me here. I crawled up into the kitchen window to clean that last week (not fun!) and put the latest bouquet of flowers I bought in it. They are a pinky purple and one of the sunsets matched it briefly. 😍😍😍 I’ve got a picture, but it’s on the camera and I don’t want to walk upstairs to the laptop to load photos. Lazy lady! Which reminds me, I need to go up anyway today. I’ve got a couple of Alaskan bills to pay ASAP. No rest for the wicked! (Or whatever that proverb is!)

  1. I get it. In England 11/11 is Remembrance Day or Armistice Day so for me, it’s definitely a day to remember the fallen. Doesn’t mean we shouldn’t honor veterans too or more but I’ve grown up with it being a huge reminder of 2 world wars

  2. You are right about the day.
    “Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day honors those who have died while in military service. There is another military holiday, Armed Forces Day, a U.S. remembrance that also occurs in May, which honors those currently serving in the U.S. military.”

    Hope you feel better soon. Hugs.

  3. Remembrance Day /Veterans Day is important, and I agree with memorials to it, but sometimes life just gets in the way of going to any kind of service, or there just isn’t one you are aware of or connected to… For me, I always go into to war cemeteries when they present themselves… So sad to see all those graves of war!

    But so sorry to hear you are not feeling good. The living are more important than the dead. You must take care of you Kris. We need to focus on ourselves sometimes (and not on others). If we don’t, we are no use to anyone, and least of all to ourselves. Feel better soon love. ❤️
