I have been sick this week. Barely get out of bed kinda sick a couple days. I was feeling better when I woke up today, then took the trash out and my head swelled with mucous almost immediately.

I still got some time to fully mend, but I am feeling much better. One of my more regular chores is washing the dishes. My wife’s hand get pretty messed up in the cold and it is excruciating for her to get them wet. So the dishes piled up this week.

But tonight I got to scrubbing. And stacking. And scrubbed and stacked until.

I am grateful to have dishes to clean and grateful for accomplishing small tasks. And I grateful for getting to stack crazy towers of dishes that I hope don’t fall in the middle of the night.
