|Brix, my first-born puppy|
Lab/golden mix, 8-1/2 years
When I was working regular hours I used to think it would be great to be sick enough to merit time off, but well enough that I could curl up with a good book.
All those months on the sofa disqualified me from reading, I was just too tired and slept and slept and slept. Now that my energy level is increasingly, slowly but noticeably, I have reached the point that I used to long for. I am still legitimately in recovery, but I can read for hours and have the time to do it. It's almost as though I've rediscovered books after a lengthy hiatus.
Besides, it's summertime, and that's what summer is for, right, reading all day long?
