Not excited about the weekend.

Friday, July 15, 2011

So, this weekend will be full... wish I had nothing going on instead. I much prefer weekends where we get bored so we drive down to Des Moines & go to an Iowa Cubs game or drive over to Cedar Falls & visit our old haunts.

Saturday evening is my BFF Deanna's 40th bday party... normally this would be a fun event.. BUT last year she & her hubby were separated & almost divorced. She vented to me A LOT about the crap that he did/was doing. He really was a jerk. They are back together now & our relationship has been strained since then. I find it really uncomfortable being around him.

Sunday evening I have to go to my parents' house for supper. Normally this would be fine, but my estranged grandfather is going to be there. I hadn't seen him since 1991 until my cousin's wedding last month. At the wedding, he didn't speak to me (or even look at me). NOW, he got results back from his doctor & found out that he is dying. He lives in Arkansas, so this will be my last chance to ever see him. I don't really want to see him, but I will do it for my father's sake.

Monday I have my yearly doctor exam... fun!! (yeah right). I'm sure not looking forward to that either. I've been having to use my inhaler EVERY TIME I exercise ever since I had walking pneumonia this fall. I've been short of breath, had tightening of the chest & been feeling faint when I get up too quickly for the last 2-3 months. Maybe I'm at the point where I need some stronger meds for my asthma. Also, hubby still doesn't like the mole on my tummy so he wants me to get a referral to a dermatologist.

Hope everyone else has a great weekend!!

    Lots of difficult events for you, from the sound of it. Be gentle with yourself, and take some time to just relax, among all the events you have going on.

    Please try to find some time this weekend to do something for yourself every day. A bubble bath with hot tea or your favorite wine...a walk in the woods....a shopping trip to a resale shop where you find a special bargain.

    You are worth being good to!

    Wow, sounds like you definitely have a lot going on. Try to hand in there and don't let things get you down too much.

    About the asthma, I too have asthma. One thing you might ask your doctor about is singular. Ever since my doctor put me on that I haven't needed my inhaler except every once in awhile (only about once a month at the max). I don't know if that would work as well for you but I know others it worked as well for. It would be something to think about.

    About the rest of the weekend, I have had weekends like that so I know that there isn't much I can say to help. Just remember there are those of us here who care about you and anytime you need to vent, just go ahead and do it and we are here to listen. Sometimes just getting it out helps to cope with it!
