Spring in the air

Thursday, April 04, 2013

Spring is in the air but it is cold today. Wanted to get out and walk today but rainy and cold, maybe tomorrow. I stay pretty busy caring for my dad but try to get out and walk daily or do some other form of cardio daily. I have slipped on tracking what I eat daily. Hard to do when eating at someone else's house. I do not have internet at my dad's so I do my sparking and logging in when I come home to care for my pets.

My sister and I are getting along fairly well. I try to not interfere with how she does things. If I see something that needs to be done I usually try to do it and let her have a break. So she can rest or do something else she wants to do. So far things are OK. am on vacation from work this week which is so nice.

Hope everyone is doing well. Take care. Never give up we can do this. Pat

    You're being kind and thoughtful to your sister. emoticon

    “People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
    If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
    If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
    If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
    The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
    Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.” Mother Teresa

    It sounds as though you are making the very best of a difficult situation. Keep up that good work! Meanwhile, take care of yourself. Hopefully you will be able to take a real vacation at some point, away from not just your job but also other responsibilities. Your care and compassion for others leaves me breathless. I just hope you are giving some of that to yourself as well. Take care!

    You're doing well Pat. It's hard becoming caretaker to our parents, but rewarding just the same. My sister and I helped my mum when she had terminal cancer. We were exhausted much of the time, but I wouldn't have missed that time with her for anything.

    Remember to take care of yourself.

    I love your positive attitude Pat! I walk in the house when it's really inconvenient or the weather doesn't allow me to get out. I always walk when I'm on the phone; it really helps. I don't track my food here; I do it with a pencil and paper. Just the act of writing it down keeps me from slipping into mindless eating. I know you can find what works for you even when you are helping others. Be well. emoticon

    You got to make yourself a priority! Your family is important but you are more valuable to them when you are healthier! Have a vacation! emoticon

    You are doing well. Have a great day tomorrow and a fabulous weekend. It IS hard when you are eating with someone else but it sounds as though you are trying to make it work.
