We share the elevator lobby with three other apartments and everyone else has put up cute little Chinese New Year decorations in their doorway. I didn’t want to be a poor sport and I really want to celebrate this year, so I went to our local bakery and looked at the goodies and decorations they had in stock.
It’s the year of the pig!
I’ve been a discouraged about Edda recently. She’s making progress at her own pace, but it’s very, very slow. So slow and so tedious. Things are just so hard for her – going up stairs, telling us that she wants something – I usually am OK with it all and I think how lucky we are that we are together, it’s just that when I’m feeling blue it just seems so bleak. I didn’t write about it when I was feeling really badly a few days ago, I do feel much better now.
