Getting back to normal
Thursday, October 04, 2018
DH came out of hospital on Monday and I went back to work on Tuesday. I wondered how he would manage. I had meals set up, but he waited till I came home pretty late. Yesterday was less well set up. DH had to go to the doctor and the day was a series of pickles, but he was determined to show that he can manage everything. Hmmmm! It’s great that he has the spirit to try it. I threw some dinner together quite late again. At least it was healthy and we enjoyed it.
Today was the last day of teaching for this week. It was a new term with some new students, so it involved extra tension, but I’ve got very lively new students and it was great to get into a world which is so far from caregiving. Last night, after a day of DH pickles and scrapes, I was wondering how I could manage this double gig of full-time working and caregiving, but it’s a great way to stay sane and balanced.
Exercise is down and eating is up so I’ll have to do some tweaking, but I have to admit, I’m rather pleased with myself for getting through the week. Next week will be easier because I’ll be in a rhythm. And I’ve learnt that next year’s teaching schedule will be easier than this one.
