When I think of lines drawn in sand a vision of Robin Williams always comes to mind. Just in case you don’t remember his performance “Live at the Met” from way back in 1985, here’s a quick link to Robin’s bit about Colonel Gaddafi and his shifting “line in the sand”.
But here I am shifting my own goal lines.
Today was supposed to be my first day on my 30-Day writing binge.
Well, life happens! This coming week, Hubby is having major surgery and the family is preparing for it. In some ways, it feels like I’m preparing for a 5-week hurricane:
- Handy contact list – must be able to reach all doctors in the middle of the night
- Gather basic disaster supply kit – lots of bottled water, hurt-free bandaids and rubbing alcohol (for when I feel sadistic 🙂
- Food – stock up on brothy soups and lots of crackers
- Entertainment – keep the iPad near to the bed at all times and have the NFL TV schedule handy
I know. I should feel sorry for Hubby. He’s going to have a foot of his colon ripped out of his body. Not fun. And for the first week, I know I’ll be a great nurse. (I have a very nice bedside manner.)
But after that first week… 😉
