How to Keep Busy.

Monday, November 04, 2013

I get bored when I sit around, so I didn't.... I went out to buy some avocado and squash and stopped at the radio station and picked up a book I won about Dealing with Chronic Illness and then went to the Manpower office and have an appt tomorrow to see if I can get another letter to provide funding to an employer who hires me... Then I went to a local agency and talked to the Nursery Teacher there about volunteering a couple days a week with them. They will pay my police check and Vulnerable Persons check and also they have me down for a CPR course on Nov. 22, so guess I can manage to find useful things to keep me busy... Then I shopped downtown for a bit and picked up MIL to go to town. We went to our usual haunts... and did get a duplicate key so we can get into her apt if ever a situation like yesterday occurs again.

We certainly are that "sandwich generation" I used to hear about.... where we now have to take care of our parents and also our kids..... a whole new age and stage of life...

Had our first hail today.... down to freezing.... and dark at 5pm.....but I did wake up at 7am....

    Couldn't agree more - busy is sooooooooo much better than idle! (Don't ask me how I know this.......)

    Keeping busy is good. I find - much to my surprise - that the busier I am, the more I seem to get done. It's like time expands and contracts to fit the space allowed...I know it's an old observation, but it's a true one! Plus, the more we're out and doing, the less time there is to sit, feel sorry for ourselves, and stuff our li'l faces! emoticon
