So friends, I realized today one of the downsides to living by yourself. Dash it all there is nobody there to get you medicine when your tummy aches. It’s odd that something like that would make me feel lonely but I can’t pretend that it didn’t. Now I wasn’t seriously ill or anything just a bit of a sour stomach and yet I had to drag myself out of bed (and to be quite honest away from the TV- lots of premieres tonight) and go to Harmons to buy stomach meds (a little embarrassing- the kind of shopping where you have to add a few items that you don’t really need just so it isn’t clear to everyone in line what ails you. At least my cashier didn’t have to check prices on anything. That is the worst! Then it is like sharing with the whole store. Hey, Rachel’s buying….You can’t be too careful. After all it’s a small neighborhood. I might see these people again!).
So, I am sure you did not start reading my blog to hear about my exciting trip to the store. I mention it only to say that with all my tough single talk there are moments when I wish I had someone there to, in this case, by me meds and tell me that everything is going to be fine in the morning. When I was visiting my sister last week my niece asked me “Rachel, why don’t you have a husband?”. I told her simply that “I haven’t fallen in love yet and you can’t have a husband until you fall in love.”. (Unless you marry for money but why scar the child with that notion!). Anyway, I really believe what I told Isabel and until I feel that way I guess I will just have to live with buying my own medicine and using my prayers to tell me that everything will be Okay in the morning- and thank goodness it usually is.
Short entry today friends. Afterall, I’m not feeling well! By the way, any of you Indiana folks I am coming for a visit! I am working in Grand Rapids for Oct 6+7 and will be in Indiana 8-10th. I will try to contact everyone I can to get together but I’ve lost a lot of phone numbers. Rachel.
