Pumpkin's rant of the day: He's Knackered!?!?
August 14, 2015 10:22am CST
Good afternoon humanoids. We've just got back from our holiday. It was quite a nice week but we didn't do as much as we'd like. That was mainly down to D's health, him not getting up until quite late, and me not knowing what time he'd get up so not wanting to do something and then come back. It was about a 3 hour drive home. Well, it was more like 3 and a half because we got stuck in traffic a little bit, and we needed to make a couple of quick stops. D isn't allowed to drive any more (for health reasons) and he did say he wished he was allowed so that he could give me a break. I like driving but, yes, it would be nice to be able to take a break and let someone else take over especially on a long journey. I took D home first and he asked me to rub his back, neck, and shoulders because he was aching, then he said that he was knackered. I understand in a way but I was the one who'd spent 3 hours driving, and he stayed in the caravan yesterday for some rest while I took Mini out. I was knackered, I was aching. To be fair, D did rub my feet and my back as well. D needs a lot of help with pain and things and I'm happy to do what I can but I do wonder if he forgets, or doesn't realise, that he's not always the only one in pain. I was also a little stressed yesterday because he got up even later than he usually does, then asked to wait until 1pm (after his medication had started to work) to see if he was feeling OK to do stuff. Again, I understand but that meant we'd wasted another morning. Then he wasn't feeling up to going out anyway. He said he'd overdone things the day before so he was in too much pain. I repeat, I do understand but I was aching too, I'd done the same as he had done (plus all the driving). So now I am quite tired and aching. D isn't as bad as some people though. He does what he can when he can, and he has a genuine illness which makes things difficult sometimes. Not like some people who do nothing, complain that they're too tired but still expect me to do everything because I have to (or because someone has to and they don't so I have to). OK, that's my rant of the day. I hope you're all enjoying these! Really, though, apart from feeling like we'd wasted a lot of time and not done as much as I would have liked, we did enjoy what we did. TTFN
