Its been too long since I blogged.
The month of August FLEW by! Taking care of my hubby has been challenging but rewarding.
I have been taking care of my dad for quite a few years, but have gone home at night - there is NO break when it is your spouse and your kids do not want to help you. I appreciate the help I have gotten - but if each would come one day a week - it would help so much! I was so exhausted in August I gave up my walking...bad thing to do!
So I am now a little more rested - I have not worked in three weeks - surgery is Monday and Thank you Lord that Don is able to now get around a bit on his own.
I have made new goals for September: I printed out the spark exercises I want to do - so if I cant log in - I have the exercises in hand. I can log them later.
I am keeping fresh veggies cut up for the week - with fresh fruits on hand. Fiber one is stocked up for three weeks, as
hubby has come to love this cereal as much as I do! I cant seem to stay on top of it - so I bought six boxes and every time I go to the store - I buy two more boxes!
The other thing I have decided to do - I am setting his phone alarm for his pills at night, so I can sleep. There is no sense in me not getting my rest - when I can have the pills set up for him to take and he can go right back to sleep.
I hope I can be more consistent logging in Sept. as well. I left a few teams that I have not logged into for months and have lowered my expectations of what I can do - my team that I lead - Loving Our Kidneys - has
members who are very supportive of me doing what I need to do for my hubby. Thank you all so much!
I love you my spark friends.
Take care and God Bless you!
