Getting Back On Track


Tuesday, February 16, 2010

I've felt as if my life had been on hold since December 4, when my cousin called and said my dad was in the hospital.
From that day it was a month of waiting. Dad got worse, then better, than worse and then he passed on January 2.
My brother and I plan a memorial service for the end of the month. So I waited, not wanting to exercise as I thought I would get sick and it as going to be cold in Ohio where dad lived. I HATE COLD!!!
So as I'm waited and grieving for my father, one of our two cats gets sick and has to be put down. She had a good long kitty life. But now I got to leave her sister alone while we go to cold Ohio.
So the end of January came and we went to Ohio and froze, but dad memorial service was very nice! Saw people I had seen in 40 years.
Meanwhile back at home there a big snow storm going on and the cat sitter can't get to the house. Thank the good Lord for the next door neighbor for feeding the cat.
Were back home. But I'm still feeling overwhelmed and depress I guess.
So I sit and wait.
Get a head cold, but manage to shake it with out having to go to the doctor.
I sit and wait.
Hubby got sick last week. He had to go the doctor! There was no ifs ands or buts about it!
I waited.
This morning I told myself, ENOUGH!!
I went to mall at and walked for half hour. I came home and ate a healthy breakfast. I walked another half hour on the "dreadmill". WOW
I got my 10,000 steps in today. I stay in my calorie range.
Yup, it time to get back on track and face the world!

Positives
Wonderful husband
Great kitty
A roof over our heads
My truck is fixed
God, for listening to my prayers

Keeping the faith,

Carol

    I'm sorry for the loss of your father and your kitty. It always seems like everything happens at once but God is watching over you, that you can always be sure of. You've got a very positive frame of mind right now, keep it up and you'll get there! emoticon emoticon

    Oh Mama, my heart is breaking for you. No matter how far away they go, they always remain close to our hearts, because they leave behind beautiful memories to cherish. May you be comforted by those memories and know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Congrats on seeing your positives and getting out there to the mall and walking today!!! WAY TO GO on getting back on track. I am sure you are needing some emoticon by now to ward off all that cold.
Blessings and hugs,
Helen
