Another day and not to bad. Good start, failing in the end sort of.....
I know I am stress eater and right now I am feeling stressed. I am going to have to learn to deal with it.
#1 My mother-in-law coming to live with us. She is a great person and we get along well. it's just getting her room ready that is stressing me. We have her in our formal dining area right now. We are converting my office back into a bedroom for her. Packing everything is such a chore and I have to know where it all is once the move is done. Hopefully once the carpet is installed on Tuesday, we will get her furniture in and she will have her own space. She really isn't ill, just her mind. She talks to herself all the time too. I can hear her in there now just chatting up a storm. I'm glad the cookies are gone.
#2 ME....i had a total hip replacement 9/27/2012 and I was hoping my recovery would be over. Some days I feel like I am going backwards. I have found 2 SP videos that are helping me get a little exercise beyond therapy. One day at a time...
I just read what I wrote and my thoughts are "how trivial." My life is good, my kids are good, my husband is good. A mess in the house for a week or so is nothing. Recovery for a hip replacement is 4 to 6 months, just a little longer.
I need to quit making excuses.
