Still home sick. Not feeling all that much better. But I had enough energy to bake some cookies, clean my bedroom, and take a shower.
I watched Jackson last night. He is a funny little guy. As I was changing his diaper while he was standing up, he peed. And thought it was funny. We ended up watching Sesame Street at 10 PM last night.
I called my parents-in-law in RI this week, my father-in-law, who will be 93 next month, had a health scare. After assuring me that he was all better, we talked about politics a little, he loves that. And we are at total opposites of the political spectrum. My mother-in-law, who had a severe brain injury from a fall, and has hardly any short-term memory left, but remembers things from the past, asked me a question no one has asked for years. I'm living in my house by myself now for 7 years now, I think.
She asked me 'Do you ever get lonely?'
She was the first one in all those years, and if I think of the 30 years before that I've been alone, it's been a long time.
I was so surprised by that question.
