Let's get this day started!

I fell asleep in my armchair last night while watching my favorite cooking show. This is something that has never happened before and as quickly as I could, I put on my pajamas and got into bed. I didn't want to try and stay awake in case the moment passed and I would not be able to fall asleep again.  My American ex, who was trying to stay up as long as possible to get used to this time schedule, was also nodding off and I think he went to bed shortly after me. Of course, we had been talking up a storm for quite some time and probably wore each other out.
I had defrosted my very richly filled vegetable soup for dinner, and I must say that I was impressed myself and that I make one hell of a vegetable soup. My ex enjoyed it a lot too, even though his stomach was on the wrong schedule and not at all ready to deal with a big meal. I think it is the Herbes de Provence that make the soup extra special. It is worth remembering that I do this well and that it is a soup that makes people happy.
This morning I am going to the orthopedic clinic in the hospital and it is really something that I am looking forward to, because I want them to tell me what I can and can not do with my knee. I hope they'll tell me to use it as much as possible, because that is my natural inclination. I do not at all want to rest with it and take it easy, especially not now that my ex is here. I do want to be able to participate in all sorts of activities and even be able to ride my bike.
Tyke likes my ex very much and listens to him very well, even though the commands are in English. Apparently they are close enough to Dutch that he understands. Tyke usually likes company, but some he likes more than others. He got very lucky this time because my ex loves dogs.
I've got to get the show on the road and do last night's dishes.

Glad it is all going well & that Tyke gets on so well with your ex.
Hope the appointment went well.

It is annoying when you fall asleep in front of the TV. It has started to happen to me, too. I thing I thought I would never allow!
