Life's Curves

Monday, May 06, 2013

I blogged last week about working on my schedule. Just because I started working on it, life took over. So, I went with the flow and gave some thoughts about what is important.

First off, my aunt passed away. So, that meant taking time to go to the funeral home and the mass itself. Mom took it hard. They were very close. And Mom's getting up in age; many of her friends and family around her age have already passed. So, Mom and I will be spending a little more time this week and next going over plans for when her time comes. My siblings are uncomfortable doing this so it's left up to me. I remember all to well what we went through when my Dad passed that I really want to make things a little easier on all of us. It's got me thinking that I don't have things in order myself. I have to start working on that. I don't want my children to have to deal with all that.

I went to a church Ministry Fair on Saturday. One of the sessions really got me thinking about those who don't have as much as I do. I was given a great idea on how to help some people. I need to plan it out, present it to my church and see if I could get it implemented. I'd love to see it work, but it will be a little work on my part. Another thing to put in my schedule...

I am hoping my doctor appointments and tests will soon come to an end. They tend to throw my schedule off and then I find it hard to get back into it. I looked at my calendar the other day and realized that I've been going to doctors trying to figure out why I have trouble swallowing since October. I have found out that I have two bulging discs in my back, spots on my brain that cant be explained, arthritis and TMJ. I have found out that I don't have Bell's Palsy and other tests have show nothing. I'm not sure what I am going to do with the time once I am done. Then, I will be able to go back to finding new things to do and making a schedule.

    I'm so sorry for the loss of your aunt, Patty. I feel sad for your mom, too... I know you'll be relieved when the medical testing is more conclusive as well. All the best...and calm and strength. - Susan
