Hi everybody! Well, it’s that time of year again. We are soon entering into December and you know what that means, right? That’s absolutely right, it’s “Cabin Fever” time again! Okay, I know, it usually doesn’t start until January. However, for me it has started earlier than normal. Meow! Oh, sorry Muffin, for both of us, I should have said. Even Muffin feels it. Ever had “Cabin Fever”? It’s terrible. You sit and stare. You get itchy. No energy. You want to do something but just can’t. You bang your head against the wall. That part is really no fun. Sigh. Not being able to go out always brings on “Cabin Fever”.
And I certainly have it. Speaking of ceilings. Ever notice there is a lot of waste space up there? Now if there was just an easy way to use that space. Would be great for storage. Would free up a lot of floor space. In here, anyway. Chains and pulleys would likely work good, but I’m not so sure my landlord would agree. Sigh. A good idea that just can’t be used. Such a shame.
Speaking of phones. Not those things that people carry in their hands 24 hours a day, I mean phones, real phones. Ones that actually stay in place. Well, most of the time anyway. Though I do keep dropping mine quite frequently. But that doesn’t count. However, back to phones. I am sitting here all morning, the phone does not ring. I am making my lunch, and the phone rings. Turn to answer the phone. Knock lunch onto the floor. I stand there looking at lunch on the floor. Phone keeps ringing. Answer phone, or pick up lunch. Phone keeps ringing. What a mess. My lunch, not the phone. The phone stops ringing. Thanks. Ruined my lunch.
All afternoon the phone does not ring. I am making supper. Phone rings. Twice in one day. I turn to answer phone. Big mistake. But I take care not to drop supper. Instead I bump into a cabinet which causes me to move my arms which causes one arm to land on supper which causes supper to land on floor which causes Steve to jump up and down, bang head on counter and, and…AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s okay. I’m fine. I’m calm. Phone stops ringing. Feel like burying phone in very deep snow out in the very frozen and very cold outdoors. But refrain from doing so. This time. Mainly because we don’t have any deep snow yet.
Ahhh, “Cabin Fever”, comes around every winter and brings so much joy into a person’s life. I hope you enjoy the remainder of your weekend and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
