Things you simply can't do while walking bent-over with a cane:
Go Teach a class. Class canceled.
Things you can do sitting on the couch:
Taxes. Check. (Aside: I love TurboTax. I used to do our taxes by hand, and I didn't really mind because I kind of like organized paperwork (we're not complicated --married, house, kid, all in one State, same jobs forever, etc.), but TurboTax just makes it happen so fast.)
Transferring labs to the online software. Umm . . . getting there.
Read books. Check
Eat Valentines chocolates. Check
Things you can't do sitting on the couch, but still need to be done:
Drive Emma to school, stop by one bank drive-up window to collect paperwork, drive to the second bank drive-up window to drop it off. Check
Empty the dishwasher. Fill the dishwasher. Check
Fill the water container for the cat's water fountain (yeah, she's old and picky). Hmmm . . . . this one requires serious back use. Not checked.
Take a shower (it's been 48 hours). Check. Almost died.
Drive Emma to Kempo, sit in the car reading, drive her home. . Still to come, as long as I can heave myself up from the couch again after that shower.
Oh, yeah, this is the LIFE!
