Normal is far away but we can pretend


The morning started with a kiss. Maybe that’s how many married households begin their day but in the land of the dual Gs (gimpy and grumpy), its a bit of a rarity. Not a whole lot of time for tenderness when it’s just a struggle to get out of bed and make your way to the bathroom.

But after the male DG’s walk (he reported extra wobbliness) and the female DG’s morning injection to ward off blood clots, it took on a semblance of normalcy, though nothing is really normal when you’re now together almost 24/7 and a marriage is used to breaks during the day. Work, lunch, more work. The comical clean up act performed in the kitchen because it really is the best sink to wash hair. And how many couples – gimpy or not – end their day getting dual manicures – and for the male DG, his first pedicure. With a few quick strokes Helen of SkyNails was able to disentangle his right toe nail, making him good to go. They couldn’t even contemplate what would happen if his right foot went south.
