#JusJoJan ~ 1/18/22

Thanks Linda for hosting and thanks JoAnna for the prompt.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 18th, 2022, is “cycle.” Use the word “cycle” any way you’d like. Have fun!

When I read the prompt rather quickly I saw circle and flashed immediately to the Lion King. Not sure if I thought I was Simba or the lil ambassador monkey holding Simba up? Guess I was the monkey because as I did my stretches this morning, I pretended I was showing off a lion cub.

Hey whatever floats your boat. I needed both the stretching and the smile. Of course cycles go in circles, which means I’m not too far off the beaten path. Right now the fam is in a downward slump part of the cycle … life cycle that is with MoMo needing assisted living care. Things are coming together ever so slowly but we’re closer to relief today than yesterday or the day before that and so on and so forth.

The nurse assessment team will accept her and she’ll get her needed care. They told me afterwards that she is a risk of fall right now and if it was their mother, they would toss the offending pain pills. They were prescribed at the ER and then the spine doctor just renewed them. Her PCP is out of the loop until today when we filled him in. As I may have mentioned, she routinely reacts to medications. This particular reaction is strikingly like dementia.

PoPo wanted her in there today but we can’t do anything without more paperwork. And payment of course. Pray she stays well between now and Monday, her anticipated move in date.

The cycle of life ….

As always, more to come.

Thanks Melanie for the set ups aka questions. Time to knock ✊ em down. Help me Jesus, life is topsy turvey right now.

Questions Fill in: ‘If I were really completely honest, I would say that …’ This is a question for ‘radical honesty’. What are the things you wouldn’t normally say? Things you would otherwise actually hide? What’s on your mind? What would you really like to be able to say? I wish I could release the hounds and tell you but if I’m completely honest, I avoid conflict at all costs. Good little girls don’t complain or make their opinions known. The few times I’ve tried to speak my piece haven’t turned out well. And quite frankly most people aren’t interested in my two cents.

Have you ever broken anything? What about rules? I’ve broken hearts 💔 yep a real Casanova. JK. I married my childhood sweetheart. My only boyfriend despite a multitude of crushes. As for rules, they’re made to be broken. 😂

Are you also afraid of spiders? What is your biggest fear, other than spiders? (if you’re not afraid of spiders, use your biggest phobia instead). Spiders are good. Well most 🕷 are good. They keep things in balance. Gardener in da house. My biggest phobia is of needles. Not shots though. Intravenous blood draw 🩸. I got past my fear to donate but it is always with risk of fainting before I’m done.

Do you think time goes faster as you get older? Time is a construct of man. It’s neither fast or slow. It’s hard to explain my point. I guess all I’m saying is I’ve referred to time as whipping by way too fast for most of my life. I feel time moving quickly because of how I mark time.

GRATITUDE SECTION (as always, optional) Please share something that really inspired you from this last week or month. I’m grateful for my family support. We’re stronger together and we’ve had a few rough patches this week taking care of MoMo. We couldn’t do it alone. Thank goodness 😅 we have each other ❤️‍🩹
