Taking Things As They Come
Saturday, June 29, 2013
Received a $100 bill from the nutritionist yesterday. So much for my insurance covering the appointments. This latest info along with my husband quitting his job recently definitely puts an end to seeing her again. Oh well, such is life! Never did receive a referral from my doctor for a therapist and I guess it's for the best now as I won't be able to afford one.
I am planning to weigh in (my scale) on Monday. Haven't done so in what seems like forever (late April) so it will be interesting to see if anything mildly Earth shattering has happened. My clothing feels loser so I know I have lost something but how much is anyone's guess. I am preparing myself however for whatever number appears as I know there will be a difference between what the scale at the hospital noted back in April and what mine will be Monday. Nevertheless I will accept what is and move on from there!
Had a major blow out with the daughter yesterday over a choice of words. Mine not hers. She made a comment, I responded with what I thought was okay, and well, she didn't like it. So World War 6, 892,131 broke out with her basically flipping out on the phone and hanging up. Tried as I usually do to call her back and straighten things out but she wouldn't answer the phone. Later she texted her dad with a stronger worded synopsis of how horrible of a person I am and she much rather I die as soon as possible. She certainly doesn't hide her feelings, I'll give her that. For someone who said she would like things to be better between her and I just a few months, she definitely hasn't made many strides in that direction. Perhaps she goes a bit longer between explosions nowadays but she is as unpredictable and lethal as usual when it comes to me.
Between her tirade yesterday and disagreements this week with the husband, I am laying low this weekend. Staying as much to myself as humanly possible. My mood is not the greatest to say the least so it's definitely for the best. Wouldn't want to fuel the fire any further. I have family outings coming up this week on the 3rd and 4th, and right now I am NOT looking forward to either of them. Would cancel my appearance altogether if it weren't for wanting to spend a little time with the grandson.
On the home redo front, all the staining in the kitchen is now complete and I am moving on with painting the walls in the laundry room than kitchen beginning Monday. Over the range microwave installation, countertops, sink, lighting, and flooring are still pending. Will be adding them in the order they are stated in the coming months. I am hoping by Christmas the kitchen will be completely finished. We will see!
For now I am just taking things one day at a time and trying hard to stay focused on home projects, eating right and exercise. The only things it seems I have even a little control over.
