Superhero(ine)

As I stood in the doorway just now, waving goodbye and watching her toting 40lbs of complaining pussycats on their way to the vet, I realized it is time once again to raise my voice in praise of that superhero called Lisa.

Lisa , of course, does everything I cannot. Right now, this means she does almost everything for us. This is the hardest part of my recovery. Not the physical discomfort, the restricted mobility, the fatigue, the boredom, the uncertainty of it all–– but the fact that Lisa is now burdened with all things domestic on top of her responsibilities at work.

So join me, won't you, in singing her praises, dedicating equestrian statues to her, or perhaps writing a Broadway musical about her superheroic feats.

And, oh yeah, if you're tempted this evening to call upon her to rescue kittens from trees or defeat diabolic schemes, please resist–– she deserves a night off.

Oh goody, since I'm first, I get to hog a whole bunch! Lisa is a FANTASTIC artist! And a great writer (not only content, but her grammar is immaculate as well). Lisa is funny, and nice, and just generally the kind of person people wish/strive to be.

--d.a., who is too exhausted to be even remotely amusing.

How did you know? I for one have already been working on a Broadway musical version of Superfriends in which Lisa will figure prominently. ;>

That picture looks just like Lisa, except her camera is missing. What happened to her camera? =)

You're not going to make her paint her own scenery, are you?

I do know something about heros. They can come in all sizes or shapes, but they always have unyielding fortitude. Lisa is amazing... and clearly a hero.

Love the picture (and the sentiment). But you have to admit that Lisa has better hair!

Three cheers for LISA! I agree she is awesome and I am sure your random acts of love and kindness help keep her going.
