This post is my 2nd Sunday reflections. Look at me, building habits. Speaking of habits, Lulu and I finished three weeks of walking every morning. We planned to skip Sundays but have done that only once so far. Tomorrow she has a tele-med appointment and I asked her if she wanted to skip. She said, “nope, lets go 30 minutes earlier”. Well look at that would ya? Folks you’ve no idea what a huge stride that is … pun intended.
I started taking my hand weights and pretend to get tired so she will take them from me. Sneaky I know but desperate times call for desperate measures as they say. This wellness routine of ours is very small but a step in the right direction. That pun was intended too :).
At her appointment she is going to ask about weaning from her anti-depressant. Something I have wanted for a while and something she just doesn’t know. Originally the doctor (who was quite the quack btw) said she would be able to stop after she got settled in college. And lookie here, she graduates on 8/8/20. Ultimately if she continues on, we will support her. My guilt for getting her in the cycle when she was under 18 be damned. We’d much rather have her obese and alive than thin and dead. Of course obese could lead to early demise. Heavy decisions for someone so young.
Alrighty, enough second guessing. Now is the time to recap.
On Monday I wrote a Haiku and Shared My World. Work was a gazillion times better because I decided to eff it. I can only control what I can control. I laughed much more this week and I let the pressure go. Up up and away. Like a beautiful balloon. Hurling expletives as she rose :). The she is me. I am the balloon. 🙂
On Thursday I also learned that a co-worker tested positive for COVID. He got it from his roommate’s sister who works at a Walmart. She brought it to church and he picked it up there. He is what they call a community spread. After time in the hospital, he is convalescing at home. Expected to make a full recovery. Thank goodness. Still when I see people out and about without masks, I just wanna punch them. Hard. In the face.
Saturday was the capstone. Twofer!! First, #SoCS in da house. Where ya never know what you’re gonna get … until you do. We had ZZ words this week. Second, mobile happy hour … like an ice cream truck for adults. Proof!!!
Peace y’all. Until next time. Stay safe.
As always, more to come.
