sooooo I had a bad night last night... can I just say UGH!
I am moving ONward!!
I have been overdoing it a bit on the ankle with all of my cleaning! I took a pain med last night that made me sick... I rested this morning by staying off the ankle, and sparked for a bit... I had to wrap my brothers foot this morning --- I am not sure I have even shared info on my brother...
My brother has been off work since March - he almost died from a mysterious infection - he was put on some heavy duty med that almost killed his kidneys... he is now in some form of therapy to keep the swelling down - and it is working! I have to wrap his leg 1x -2x a day - depends if the wrapping becomes loose. He has waivered between being told he may never return to work to the possibility of a sit down job - he is a mechanic who works on BIG diesel trucks. He has been staying at my house since May. Sooooo yes, on top of everything with my dad and my mom, I have also been helping to take care of my brother - he is living in his camper in my back yard, so he does do 99% of his own care.
At any rate - I have been pushing myself to clean everything in the house, as it is on the market and I want things much cleaner and FRESH. This is on my to do list in my time off - and - the time is speeeeding by!
I am so very very glad that I am making time to spend time with family and that cleaning is NOT priority one, but that family is.
I had Ana for a visit again and I am teaching her how to crochet some more; I started last summer, but I remember learning when I was 8 and it was a process I did not fully get until high school, but if I help her I hope she will be able to do it faster and better than I did. I am helping her to relearn the simple single stitch and help her with some of the technical stuff - like you have to pull apart rounds sometimes when you make a mistake (or not - if you only messed up ONE stitch,ect) and redundant things like counting your stitches each round to be consistent in numbers. Last year she did one line, this year we are working on making a square, so she is now making rows.
I cleaned the bathroom some more today - I hit the dresser and the clothes rack. Because I was so unsteady and in pain this AM - I did not do any spark videos. If the pain is better tonight I may do some strength training.
I am sticking to my plan - OH HEY! I lost 3 more pounds!
Have a blessed day!
