Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.

Happy Exhaustion

I am exhausted…body is worn out. I have been taking meds to fight the shingles outbreak….thankfully they are working! Working well enough that I was able to help my son with his bedroom “remodel” (his Dad moved the bed and moved the new to him chest into the room). I was able to help him organize his new chest and his toys/books/games.

Today I had to get outside! Even though I just stood and held onto wire, I was able to participate….to help my husband and son build a smaller inner pen for our pheasant chicks. I commented that the door to their brood house should be painted red (exterior of the rest is a mossy green)……so I got the opportunity to paint the door!

I am happy that I was able to participate even though limited, this weekend. It was awesome watching the pheasant chicks exploring their new expanded space. It was even more great seeing the smiles of our son….and watching them work together.

Now I sit and rest….feet up. Waiting for my boys to finish a few more things outside. Then we will relax…..and sleep well tonight!
