How do you feel right now?
'Good Enough' days are God-sent.
I woke up with a throbbing left side headache 🤕. Because the stress is obviously getting to me, I decided over a coffee to watch some comedy. Next minute, I found myself in hysterics, laughing out loud. The trouble was, it was only 5am!. Had to tone it down a bit to not wake up anyone. Damn that laugh felt good, so much stress was released.
Update: We attended the cowboy and cowgirl wedding, and we survived. I'm very proud of how my husband handled the situation with integrity and grace. It was not easy for him.
Well, I'm still living with the housemate for now. She stays happy as long as we let her have her way. (Whoever read her chart and saw "queen bee" in there--damn straight!)
A couple of times this week she has gotten feisty over small things. She called my phone and left a message, then accused me of making that up when I nicely asked her about it. Next thing you know, she's ready to call her daughters. Heaven help me if I say I'm going to call them, though! Tonight she asked to help her find her swimsuit, even though her daughters packed her clothes already (she and one daughter are traveling this week). I said I could ask her daughter real quick if she packed it. She looked me square in the eye and told me you don't need to do that, "just do what I tell you!!" (Yes, Mother!) She bickered with the other daughter too, so daughter backed off. (Never ever argue with someone who has dementia, even if they're wrong. Just DON'T!)
Anyway, the daughter who was going to cancel the trip changed her mind, since this could be her mom's last trip. I wish them well. I guess we'll see how it goes.
The days are gradually getting warm enough to venture outside. Thought I’d drink my morning coffee outside. Glad I did, as I discovered a mini nest in one of my hanging basket plants. This token of beauty found in nature, made me feel a sense of hope and joy.
I was hoping that in September and the next couple of months more things would start to open up here in NJ, but that hasn't happened. Any event you would go to outside is still canceled and its just depressing at this point.
I don't want to go to a virtual event. They are no replacement for the real thing. We can test for Covid till the cows come home and I'm sure people have it or have had it, but they're not dying from it. Its time to let people live their lives.
