Trudging Along

Thursday, February 07, 2013

Some weeks are just "easier", aren't they? Everything goes as planned, we can check off our To Do list items, everyone in our lives is pleasant, we are appreciated,...

SOME weeks are like that. This isn't one of them for me.

DH has been re-visited with some of his cellulitis symptoms, so I have been dealing with that. My youngest SD is here, trying to relocate to this part of the state, and while I am very hopeful that things will work out as planned, it is a bit different to think about another person's food likes/dislikes. DH told me to quit trying to be "perfect". I thought I had left that behind some time ago on my Spark journey, but perhaps that isn't quite true. I probably haven't in my relationship with my stepfamily. So that has been interesting.

I haven't been able to participate in my BLC challenge as I wished, but I haven't quit as I would have before becoming a huge advocate of the 80/20 rule. I AM helping my team, I AM helping myself, I AM doing what I can do right now.

So this is a "trudge" week, but that's okay...

    Well... I just posted here on your blog Tammy, and Poof,???? It's gone. lol Everything was going emoticon for me, then I ended up in the Hospital with Pneumonia. Now I am on a Cardio Diet and not doing much exercise. But...You know what? We will never give up. We are Spark Friends and we will keep going and encouraging each other. Hang in there sweet friend. Tomorrow is another day.

    Tammy, You are doing emoticon !!
You sure are juggling a lot of balls in the air and you're managing to keep them all going. That, in my book, is a great success emoticon

Hope that DH is feeling better today emoticon

    So sorry Tammy the Cellulitis is back. It really is hard to treat I hope it will resolve very soon. Did he have an injury that caused it. My friend a spark friend blogged about her foot for a very long time. She was going to the wound center twice a week at one point but it has got better. I hope his gets better very soon. emoticon

Take care of yourself and DH. It is hard having others in your home, It can become hard enough to make you feel ill in fact. Try to cope with you and DH and SD must cope for herself .

HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Tammy, yes, I hear you. This hasn't been a great couple of days in the family relationship dept for me but I'm trying to avoid sabotaging myself with reverting to bad habits.

Be good to yourself,
