Update on Daughters and Me

Sunday, May 29, 2011

My daughters are both doing better. There having grand adventures this weekend. Now, as for me, I know that I need to keep busy for the next couple weeks and have tentative plans already in my outline form. Just need my plans to lead quickly to a job!

    I know you will feel much better when you know they've arrived safely even though you will miss them.... I sure hope a good job is in the plans for you real soon... and not some stupid job that will find you looking for another one real soon either, you need something where you feel good about yourself and can get settled in. emoticon

Say a Prayer for Me

Friday, May 27, 2011

I've got to say goodbye to my daughter today as she moves far away. I'm trying so hard not to let her see me upset, but most of the time it's not working. I could use a prayer that I can be brave and that she can have a safe and uneventful journey.

    Patty, I pray that your daughter has a safe trip and that you will adjust to the change. My mom always said we would always be her kids. I was in my 70's when she died and I was still her kid.
I agree with NPA4LOSS emoticon

    I am sure that your daughter can handle a few tears. Just let her know how happy you are for her even though you will miss her. Crying can be a healthy release. We raise our children to let them go. You have done your job well. She is independent. emoticon

I'll be saying a few prayers for you! I've been through this before, when I moved far away from my parents. It's tough, but you'll get a little be braver every day.

The Stress Overload Merry-Go-Round

Thursday, May 26, 2011

I'm definitely on it and don't know when I'll be able to jump off. I've been trying to get my sleep in, make lists, do deep breathing, etc. It's working a little, but not enough. I've run out of ideas on how to deal with it (I'm already on meds.) So, I guess I say a few prayer and tie the know tighter.

    YOu are so persistent and I was reading on someone's comments "women are like teabags, you don't know how strong they are till they are put in hot water" - I think we both need to keep that thought in mind. I'll be praying or you to.

Some Things are Easy, Some are Not

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

I had my annual mammogram this morning. It went smoothly and I'm glad to have it done and behind me. I will be going for my first colonoscopy soon and am not looking forward to that.

I thought I would be needed pots and pans right away, so I bought a set yesterday. Turns out that I don't, so back they went to Wal Mart this morning. It gave me a chance to buy some impatients for the balcony. It's been 15 years since I've been able to have any outside plants, so I'm kinda excited about that.

There's more kinks in my daughter's plans, and my heart goes out to her. I don't know how the next few days will proceed. I just keep reminding myself that God has a plan for us. I'm just waiting to hear what it is. Maybe I'm just not hearing it or I am hearing it but not listening closely enough to follow it. I just don't know...

    The worst part of the colonoscopy was the pretest stuff. They give you that stuff to help you forget and I had a wonderful sleep. That's all I remember. emoticon

    We all need to take care of ourselves, glad you got the hard stuff - well some of it, out of the way.

I had a colonscopy a few years ago when I went to hospital, so at least I didn't have to agonize and worry over it, they told me I was going down and then it was done.


sorry to hear your dd's plans are in limbo too.

Busy Week Ahead - What do I do next week?

Monday, May 23, 2011

I have a very busy week this week. My to do list today is a mile long - a list of a lot of little things that need to be accomplished. Each one in itself won't take long. Adding them all up will take all day. The rest of the week has more than my share of activities.

Most of my activities this week revolve around helping my daughter. When I get done helping her, what will I do with myself? This is definitely a time of change for me. I'm nervous and a little scared.

I go from questioning whether or not I can make it to feeling like I can conquer it if I put my mind to it. Gotta find the middle ground. Gotta find activities that I want to try for the coming weeks. Staying busy, I think, will be a good way for me to handle the emotional changes. I am trying to psych myself up for this and this is the only thing that I have thought of so far.

    I understand.. I'm in the same boat. I was thinking of going to Curves today and focusing on making me healthier, but this stupid stomach flu that the g.kids have caught me too. That means I didn't get to my union meeting either, but she called and said to call tomorrow.

I guess I better not be helping with g.baby today, we don't need her getting sick. At least it didn't hit me till after I had my a.m. walk.

Remember to find something fun to do, not all work!

    Wishing you a happy week. I do find that when I am busy that I feel better, and handle emotions better too- good way to let off steam.
