"ennui" - "ahn-we"

That's a word I've never used in a conversation. But I may have to incorporate it very soon. It means "a feeling of weariness and dissatisfaction".

Carole and I sit here on a gorgeous spring afternoon, as immobile as sphinxes, trying to recover from various ailments, each attempting to out-cough the other. I'm so desperate that I've ached for the opportunity to pull weeds. Between us, and using our laptops, we have exhausted the internet. Happened about 3:03 this afternoon.

The situation is getting comical...almost. Yesterday we got a call from Carole's mom that resulted in us taking her to the doctor. Turns out she has shingles. We were in no condition to make the trip, but taking care of our mommas is a priority.

Of course, we remain extraordinarily blessed. Neither of us has a terminal illness. We are surrounded with loving people. We each had something to do today until 3:03. Life is good, summer is coming.

And germs cannot survive the Texas heat.
