So today.....................

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

I had a change of routine today and it feels so good.

We've been visiting FIL in hospital as some of you know and as much as I love him, the routine is very stressful and I really needed a break- starting to feel institutionalized; home,car, hospital, car, home- no fresh air.

Plus I haven't been down to the hospice office for 2 weeks and the last time I was in they had trouble with the roving profiles so I couldn't do my work. So it's all backed up and that was playing on my mind too.

SO I grasped the nettle and asked DH if he minded if I give it a miss today and go down there.

It meant I got an hour walk in , in the sun and fresh air, was able to talk about something other than family probs, caught up with the work, came home and had lunch (Pete had gone to collect Lilian and go see FIL by then) and got 45 mins gardening in! In glorious sun with the birds twittering. ACE!

Now I've just got dinner all prepared ready for when his lordship gets back and caught up with my Spark mates.

I think I'll settle down with a well earned cuppa and watch The Chase trivia quiz.

Ahhhhhhh bliss- I really needed the break today, just doing what I needed and wanted to do- including a core workout this morning- and feel invigorated and ready to face the world again.

Must thank DH tonight for the day off...and I hope he heeds my advice and goes out with his mate Bob on Friday to sink a few down the pub, he needs a change of scenery too!

I want to thank my Sparkfriends too for bearing with me while I've been unable to keep pace with the feeds lately- just can't get on here as much as I would like.

    Only just caught this - VERY happy to read that you gave yourself a space to have some time in the sunshine and to get the hospice work off your mind. Hope Pete takes your advice and will be out for his own 'me' time in the pub on Friday. You both deserve a break and will be back to Ernie and Lilian with refreshed attitude. It's a difficult time and you both need to keep going the best you can.

Hope all is well with them - as far as it can be - and with you two

    You are so wise to have made time for yourself. I've been down this path with elderly parents and it can wear you down quickly. Your health is precious and it will not hold up to continual stress (voice of experience here). Encourage DH to take his time, too, he needs to re-energize.

    It's great that you got to have a "ME" day. It's important for body and soul to take a break when under stress. Take care.

    Been down this road and it is so important to take care of yourself, if only to ensure you are there for everyone when they need you, but also to safeguard your inner you. Glad you felt the relief of time off and know how valuable it can be.

    It is always tricky when you have a frail family member in hospital, trying to juggle visits with everything else, and it is a good idea to take a break, to recharge. :-)
Hope things improve for your fil asap.
Hugs,

    It's called "Taking care of yourself" and is essential to maintaining your health and being able to be there for others. I'm so glad you took this day! I hope your DH heeds your advice too. It is a difficult time. Take care. Joy

    Glad you had a "you" day. The walk to the hospice must have felt so good I need that fresh air fix even a 15min walk when I am working gives me this. I enjoy watching the chase which is on when food is cooking. Hope you have a good evening emoticon

    Very cute and understandable. Off on vacation this week with DS and I've got all these grandious plans to get my spring cleaning done and I'm sitting here with a coffee, looking at my knitting with regret...must get off my butt and at least get one cupboard cleaned out while he's still sleeping. Have a great day.
