caring for my gimp

My Gimpy Gal has been going to bed early, like old person early, for the last couple weeks. Normally she (and I) are night owls (we are still able to close a bar when needed). Stephanie hit the sack a little after 9 tonight and before hobbling upstairs implored me to write a post.

If you have followed this blog for any time you know two things about my wife:

1. she hates pain or the anticipation of pain
2. she avoids exercise like pain

For years I have badgered nagged suggested that she get her bunions removed, but was, shall we say, rebuffed. So when Stephanie said she was going in for surgery for the worst bunion, I told myself I would be the best Nurse Nightingale I could be. I actually like caring for my temporarily disabled wife, although she has a hard time letting me 'do it all'. I must have done a decent job though; she is talking about when to schedule surgery on her other foot.

Now if I could just get her to come to the gym with me :)

I'm proud of you, my Gimpy Gal. We'll do it again soon.
