As some of you know, I give SWMBO a back rub almost every single night. It helps her go to sleep - and it helps relieve the tensions that build in her back over dealing with the constant pain of EDS (Ehlers Danloss Syndrome). I often do feet and hands, as well. Oh. And she likes it when I 'rub her hair'. ON HER HEAD!! She loves it when I run my fingers through her hair - she finds it very relaxing.
As I do this, I often read to her. She likes the sound of my voice. She says she finds it soothing. I kinda think that's neat, but don't tell her, 'K?
Anyway, last night I read her the 8 parts of 'One Knight's Story'. She actually stayed awake and listened - and liked it. I kinda think that's neat, too.
I will, however, test her recollections in the morning (this is being written after she's fallen asleep, but before midnight on Friday). Because I'm never really sure whether she's awake or not.
On Wednesday of this coming week, our youngest son will be 18. And this Fall, he starts college. Where has the time gone? Where ....
