Still on the Right Track

Thursday, June 07, 2012

Today, I got my son to contact the employment place for people with disabilities. He has an appointment for next week Wednesday. He did get a call back from Home Depot, but didn't understand how to answer the questions the guy was asking. I still think it is ok because he will learn and all experience is good. In the meantime, he is earning money by doing yard work at my sister in law's. Also, a friend of mine needs his help and he will go there and help her.

Got back to the barn again today. Can't remember the last time I could go two days in a row. But, he and I have to be my priority. I've noticed that my blood pressure is going down and I am going to talk to my doctor on Monday about trying a natural supplement before going on meds. I am also thinking of doing the DASH diet. I have been reading a lot about it.

I admit that I have been really bad about contacting my mom. But, honestly, I don't think she remembers when I do call her. I have told her 5 times about my friend (who mother knows) having cancer and she never remembers.

I have also not contacted my sister Mimi. I kept trying to re-establish a relationship with her, but she won't come to my son's party which should be no surprise to me. She says her husband is showing her dog at a dog show. However, she did go to her husband's uncle's birthday party and this would normally be her week to see my mother any way. I just decided she isn't worth it. She's not hurting me. She is hurting my kids. In turn, they want nothing to do with my side of the family. I am just erasing those people from my life.

Hoping that the last appointment with our atty will be tomorrow and then the audit will finally be concluded.

I am beginning to think that things will fall into place :)

    So glad that the audit will soon be finished. Does your mother have dementia/Alzheimer's Disease? I just wondered because of the way she forgets what you tell her. Too bad your family is so dysfunctional and are ruining your relationship (and your family's relationship) with them, Prayers headed your way, my friend!

    GREAT that you are getting all this time in with JC! emoticon
