JUST FOR SUNDAY: 10/14/12

I Told ‘Ya So!

This is Sharon writing for Jerry today.  He is bedridden with a horrific sciatica pain shooting down his right leg.  This is the result of his choice to continue hauling heavy boxes in from the garage to the room in the house where the items in the boxes will go. I told him to stop carrying heavy boxes, that he would hurt his back and not be able to do anything for days.  (Am I nagging?)

He carried some very heavy boxes to the den, where our new computer desks and chairs were put in place.  It’s our ‘office’ and a most comfortable one at that.  The boxes were full of things that came out of our desks and shelves in the library-den in our previous home.  Very heavy stuff.  I told him to stop carrying heavy boxes, that he would hurt his back and not be able to do anything for days. (By now, this is definitely in the ‘nagging’ category.)

He carried some very heavy boxes to the kitchen, boxes that were full of dishes and kitchenware.  Very heavy boxes.  I told him to stop carrying heavy boxes, that he would hurt his back and not be able to do anything for days.  (Severe nagging category by now.)

Jerry’s rationale (?) for continuing to strain his back was that he ‘needed to get things done’.  Hmmmmm…  so you carry heavy boxes, and strain your back, and get sciatica to flare up and not be able to do anything at all???  Being bedridden really interferes with ‘needing to get things done’.  (Now it’s total nagging.)

And now he is in bed and I’m doing all the unpacking, still nagging in my head.  He didn’t plan it this way, did he?

Jerry will be back at the computer (now installed in his snazzy new desk) and will probably respond to this post very soon.  Stay tuned.
