The Girl Got Published, I've Got Bob Dole Hand, and No Energy To Do Housework

I don't know about any if you have famous authors living in your house, but we do, it's just the way we roll. The girl wrote a book when she was 14 or so, probably the only thing she wrote that the father didn't die in the first few minutes! She finally decided to get it published, it's called, "Her Hair",and we are all excited about it. She's excited because, well, because she she got her book published. I'm excited because when she's famous, she can buy me stuff! She has others, one will be submitted to a competition, I'll let you know.

I'm getting the wife to sew the right pocket of all my pants shut, it is officially useless to me. If I am able to get something in the right pocket, I sure can't get it out. I was wearing a pair of my fat guy shorts today, had my wallet in my right pocket. My wallet is huge, has my badge, and wad of cash I lug around. I couldn't get my right hand into the pocket. My hand isn't swollen and won't fit, I just couldn't find the opening, or manipulate the wallet out. I need to start carrying a pen in my right hand like Bob Dole, problem is I'd drop the pen. I always liked my right hand, I'm going to miss it.

I have tons of projects that need to be done, don't have the energy to even get started. It's time to get started with painting, refinishing floors, all kinds of fun stuff. I won't be doing any of it. That time has past for me, I will be the guy that sits on the chair and keeps saying it needs another coat, even before the first one is on yet. Who will build my cottage doors, put up my wainscoting, my disco ball? I know this is just the start of this part but I already hate it! Just something else to get depressed over.

Sorry to hear about your loss. As with everything else in life, when we lose one thing, something else steps in to take its place.

Don't look for that something. One day you will just notice it.

Chin up,

Stuff could always be worse said...

Yes congrats for you daughter and I know the feeling of not wanting to do work on the house, it never ends but is worth it when it does.

Hi Andy,

Congratulations to your daughter for getting her book published, that is brilliant.

Real shit whats happening to your hand, it really is the pits when you have hands that do not do thigs anymore.

It is endlessly frustrating, wonder what could compensate or replace it???

Still looking for the answer, I can just about type with two fingers.

I use the index finger on both hand, sometime only right will function.
Hate having no feeling in my fingers so get no information from touching something.

Hope you manage somehow.
Have a good day.

Anne - I did lift my chin, imagine my surprise to find another one underneath!

Kim - It's always good to finish a project, even if someone else is doing the work.

Herrad - I'm hoping to hit a plateau and stay there for a bit, but I know you don't always get what you want.

It's hard to imagine back and realize that I ever could have

Thanks for stopping by,
