I’ve spent the last two weeks at home with #bae following his spinal fusion surgery. I’ve been playing stage manager to all the goings-on of the household and fam, and have tried (with mixed success) to work from home to boot. In all that hat-wearing, there have been lots of moments of quiet, of snuggles with kids and dog and this man. We put up the Christmas tree. We are delicious meals brought by loving friends. We took long walks (per his recovery instructions) that gave us time to talk and laugh and dream. It’s been hard but precious. Disruptive of life rhythms but well worth it.
This morning at his post-op visit, the NP was so pleased she told him the only concern at this point might be “holding you back”. I can’t understate the victory in that observation. He’s been in 24/7 pain for months and has limped for over a year. I can recall saying not that long ago how I’d love just to see him smiling when I came home from work. Not to criticize him but as a longing that he’d not be wincing in pain and unable to enjoy life.
So here we are, a last morning together over free coffee at IKEA, and I’m rejoicing in the hope that’s oozing from him and the smile that will not leave his beautiful face.

One thing to remember when it comes to social media marketing is to never forget the entry level cars. Exotics and sports cars get likes, but sedans and crossovers get sales and customers.
