Just when you think life is going to slow down . . . it, of course, never does.

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

I can't believe it's been almost a month and a half since I wrote that last blog. We fin ally made it through moving my daughter to Boston. I came home thinking that now it was time to take care of me . . . and then hubby's aunt passed away. After that trip to NY, I thought maybe now I can work on cleaning this house and start exercising and taking care of myself. Then daughter calls crying because boyfriend broke up with her and "can I come home for a while."

So its not going to slow down I just need to make the time to do the things I know I need to do. Its been quite a while since I have exercised regularly and that's the first thing to start. I'm going to start eating sensibly and stop mindless shoveling of food into my mouth. And stop staying at work so late.

I need to remember too that my decisions have an impact on my hubby. He just had a visit to the doctor and found out he was borderline diabetic. I can abuse my body and not have as big of an impact -- his body does.

Also I'm going to a training for work next month and I'd like to be able to wear my clothes all day without being uncomfortable -- so there's a short term goal. Here I go again!

    its called life, and unfortunetly we have to go through it. take one day at a time, deal with tomorrow when it gets here. take time for only you. you cant do everything. i wish i would have heeded those words myself, now my hubby has hodgkins and we must take it one day at a time. my daughter has probs my son has probs, and they always want us to bail them out. we must take care of ourselves in order to remain healthy. lots of thoughts and love coming your way. bel

    I know what you my blog for today (or any other day with an "interesting" title. I have had so "much on my plate" the last year or longer, that a case management nurse from my insurance company used the phrase "You seem to have a lot on your plate," referring to all the stressors I am trying to deal with. I am taking an online stress class through insurance company/employer and lately I have been too stressed to do my lesson but need to work on it to get a $200 shopping card at Target when I complete it. emoticon
