The week that wasn't
Wednesday, July 03, 2013
Last week was crazy. I was VBS director for my church, so I was there from about 7:30 a.m. until 12:30 every day and then rushed home to fix hubby something to eat and get him to his radiation treatment.
I love VBS and have been director for several years, so I didn't think it would be too much of a hassle, but this year there was a curve ball: a volunteer who was always either a step ahead or a step behind me, making her own decisions and telling everyone else what to do. By the end of the week I was ready to punch her.
Anyhow, it was a bad week in terms of stress and on top of that I had a broken tooth with no time to get it seen about. Got to the dentist on Monday and had a root canal.
Did I mention that I ate ice cream and mashed potatoes with hubby last week? He lost 3 pounds and I gained at least that much. And here it is, Wednesday. How did that happen?
So I'm sitting here watching the rain pour down. Still exhausted. Still not motivated to cook something healthy for myself - seems to take all I can do to get food into hubby, especially since the doctor lectured us about the need to maintain weight. As his treatments progress, hubby is having more difficulty swallowing and has to have several medications (which he resists taking) just to be able to get down milkshakes.
Grumble, grumble. Life is hard. Poor pitiful me.
What is wrong with this picture? I have so many blessing for which I am grateful. Just having a tough day (week). Tomorrow will be better. Now let me go and eat an apple.
