Up early today. Used to have problems with that and was just thinking..."Man it's been a long while since I had these middle of the night wakings!" Well guess they are back...or they are this AM Got an early meeting off site and I'm in charge of the McDonald's run for the staff! Have to get some things together and maybe that was on my mind. Was afraid I couldn't get everything ready for the early meeting.
Went to exercise last night but Mom was dizzy so when half way around and left as she was sitting on the sidelines looking icky. So took her home after picking her up something to eat at fast food (I didn't buy anything for me) and sat with her awhile. Don't know if it was low blood sugar or what. Had stopped by during the day and she was eating soup so I think she was eating some yesterday. We try to keep watch that she does eat. This is the season/month Dad passed away so we are trying to watch her and see how she's doing. We are gone again this weekend to visit friends in Evansville about 4 hours away...wonder if she'll pull...I'm sick...as she already knows we're leaving...or if she's puny because she's thinking of dad. She perked up after drinking a vanilla shake some. Hubby came by when he got home and we sat with her until 7:15 or so and she perked up. Wonder if it was sugar. Not sure how much she's eating. Will have to keep an eye on it. She isn't diabetic but if she doesn't eat right wonder how that will impact her. Thought she was having a GOOD DAY...when I stopped in she told me she had driven to the Post Office to mail a package. That is the FIRST TIME in two years she has driven by herself. She did drive my hubby to church Sunday at his suggestion...but it's been a year or so since she has even done that. Thinks she can't do it or she'll get lost. We have been super busy recently and don't have time to run her around a lot. We get her out a couple times a week but not as often as she would like. There just isn't time.
Looked as someone else's blog and they talked about office moves and how their eating habits were slipping. It made me reflect on the past few months of changes and office move and hectic schedule. Trying to make good choices but eating on the run and have been out of town and notice I'm packing it back on, Life has just been crazy recently. I have been keeping up with exercising but not as much at night time with mom as I'd like to. Like I said we're gone this weekend and next weekend I'll be gone to visit a friend who lives about 2 1/2 hours away as her hubby is diagnosed with terminal cancer and I haven't been to visit her in a couple of years and want to spend some time with them and see how she's doing. I still have garage sale stuff to put away. Guess it will still be here when I get back to a slower pace in a few weeks.
Time away at my class reunion was relaxing and good last weekend...but now it seems a long time ago.
Having lunch with an old neighbor today. She has gone through a rough divorce and is finally at peace with her life and moving on.
Best get one with the day...
