This is going to be a hard week to get through!
We now have a date for Anita’s MRI –1st August — Saturday!
We also had a phone call check up this morning from the cardiology department. They asked a million questions but seemed happy with Anita’s progress. She is a lot stronger, but the stairs still leave her struggling to breathe, which is a worry.
I’m doing a fair bit of struggling of my own, too — what with running the household and all my other jobs. Some housework is being done, but nowhere near enough!
Most of the time, I have no idea what I am doing, or if I have forgotten anything as I’m concentrating so hard to make Anita well again. Her medication is complicated, nine different kinds of pills every day.
Number one son brought one of those weekly pill boxes, which has helped a lot. At least I can now see immediately if I have missed any!
I find myself thinking about some funny things these days, even with all the stress, which is rather odd seeing as how I can’t persuade my brain to do anything for me. I would have thought it would welcome the time off, or does it know something I don’t?
Perhaps it’s trying to get my attention?
Not a chance mate, if the WIP can’t do it, I don’t think anything else will.
I have been reading some interesting posts lately, about goals, ambitions and what most of us settle for and maybe we shouldn’t?
I have the ill-gotten reputation for being a bit clever, but I’ll let you into a secret. I’m the world’s best winger!
I love to make all manner of craft work, plus knitting, crochet, and dressmaking. I cook and paint and have two sets of green fingers. Most of what I make looks passable, but is any of it really great? Perhaps it all comes down to the difference between good and brilliant!
The phrase ‘Jack of all Trades, master of none’ runs through my head, making me wonder if I should stop trying everything and concentrate on just one thing and try for perfection.
As writing is my most favourite thing, maybe I should start with a creative writing course? Any ideas, anyone?
I spotted this somewhere, and couldn’t resist sharing it!
