My family is still with me, bu tthe time is growing shorter until they move on.
I need my space again. With the use of the Hoveround, I need so much more space than what I have with two adults and two
underfoot. Today they're out shopping on their day off so I have breathing and blogging room.
I have been spending time doing online and phone shopping these past few days, and as so many of my dear Spark friends advised, just keep my focus. So I splurged and bought that super juicer bullet from the TV, so I can make my afternoon snack juices with lots of healthy ingredients. I need to stay independent and one way to do that is to be the healthiest person I can be. I also invested in a new super deluxe veggie peeler. My aide misplaced or threw the other one away, so I bought a red handled one and will give it its' own private hook in the kitchen. I really miss it.
It's been an adventure and a lesson in holding my tongue these past few weeks, even though my need to express "displeasure" at times got the best of me
. Did it ever!, but I repented and made it up to my DD by serving her when she was feeling sick, so all is forgiven I'm sure. It's so hard living in close quarters and having to bite your tongue besides. But this too shall pass and in the end I'm just so glad that I was able to provide a safety net and an anchor in the storm for them. That's what
is all about; keeping my little
warm and safe.
