Quite a busy day doing what needs to be done

I had dermatologist check up at 9 this morning and that went well. Anne has the virus that I am just about over, so I have been chief cook and bottle washer for two days now. After the appointment, I stopped at Trader Joe's with a short list, on to a drug store for some meds for Anne, then a regular grocery store for things I forgot at TJ's. (Yes, I had a list!) Then it was home to empty the dishwasher (I forgot to run last night), the kitchen floor needed mopping (sloppy cook) and the dust bunnies were looking for the vacuum cleaner. Don't forget lunch; I enhanced a blue can of Chicken Rotini soup with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, more broth and some frozen green beans and a ham sandwich (for me); soup was all she could eat. She saw the doc yesterday and her coughing is a bit better. I have some skinless chicken thighs that will have something good done to them for dinner, not sure what yet. Relaxing a bit this afternoon before dinner prep calls. Ohhh, I forgot that load of stuff in the dryer.

So do I! The doc was considering a chest x-ray, but she was a little better this morning when she spoke with him.

@JamesHxstatic Oh, thank goodness. I do hope she is on the mend. I will be glad when this scary season of illness is over.

@Corbin5 Yes, it has been a bad one. I have had nothing like this, maybe ever, yet not the flu. Just severe head/chest colds, bad coughs, no fever, and zero energy.

You are a wonderful husband to get what needs to be done - done. My husband was a chef in another life so I don't have to cook but he has never meet a dust mop. I'm not complaining because I love not having to cook, and he doesn't seem to notice dust bunnies and I always wait until he is in the house to bring out the dust mops, the vacuums and dust rags.....

I never met a dust mop I liked. And those bunnies have to get pretty big for me to notice them. I think dusting is a foreign to men.

Sounds like you had a lot to do today. The best part of the day might be the chicken thighs...

Anne must feel relieved that you are so capable when you take over.

James, what a life huh? I hope Anne feels better soon. Coughs can really do us in. I always found it hard to get rid of mine.
