Good morning all,
It really is a good morning for me. Yesterday at the food bank was phenomenal. We had way more food to give out than ever before. The weather was sunny and warm, the cold snap has finally broken. People were far more cheerful than usual and there was a lot of talk, banter and especially laughter as the food was distributed.
I think I've told you before that I truly love working at the food bank. I feel so privileged that they allow me to participate and job they've given me is perfect. I sign people in and register them for the next distribution day. I regulate the flow of the clients through the line to pick up their groceries. That way the woman who packs their bags doesn't get rushed and each client gets all the things they want. It is a wonderful job for me. Lots of interaction with our clients.
I picked James up and then brought him home to stay for a few days. He will be here until his next medical appointment. He will also visit many of his friends up here. So he won't be in this house constantly.
James brought in the many bags of groceries from the food bank and we sorted them and put them in their proper places. You should see my cupboards, they are full to the brim. What a wonderful thing. I always feel better when I know we have plenty of food in the house.
My doctor has prescribed a new medication. She warned me that it would make me sleepy and possibly dizzy so she told me to take it immediately before I went to bed. For the first time in months I slept straight through the night. No waking at two am. What a wonderful feeling. This morning my feet didn't feel as if I had sand between my toes and on the ball and there were no wake-up kind of stars either. I am very happy this morning.
Did I eat right yesterday. Much better than usual. We had chili for dinner last night because I thought the spices would make us feel warmer. That proved to be a good thing. We watched a movie and went to bed early.
I have a new caregiver starting this afternoon, (yet again.) Her commute here will be considerably shorter than the last two ladies and she might just stay a little longer. I am scouting for a replacement if she doesn't. I talked yesterday with the Pastor of the church were we have food bank and he knows of a couple of men who are looking for work. They are training to be EMTs so they won't be put off by having to do the more personal parts of this job.
I need to go fix breakfast now. I can hear that James is awake and I know he needs to eat right away. His medicine requires that he eat with regularity.
I'll see you all later.
