Real Life Happens

It is crazy how fast real life hits you when you get back from vacation! WOWSA!

I want to make sure to thank each and every one of you that commented yesterday on my post. I appreciate the time you took to comment and share information with me regarding your experiences with strokes. I also really appreciate all the well wishes too and my friend does also!

Time will tell how he progresses but I am so happy I have you all to share with.  I also appreciate you letting me know that I am not alone in this experience. It means a lot! As long and he keeps putting himself and his health first, I will be there. If and when the destructive behavior and choices start up again;  I will be tapping out. Does that sound horrible? I hope not. I really just realize that I need to take care of me first and I cannot save anyone else. IF he chooses to hurt himself and jeopardize his recovery; I will not stick around! Again, time will tell but so far so good!

Today is just another Tuesday! Nothing exciting happened last night. I went to barre class and then over to visit my friend at his house. He had about a million burnt out lights so we worked on getting the bulbs changed in all of those and chatted a little. He has two grown kids at home and they have really stepped up lately. His son is 30 and daughter 32. They both still live at home. His son has stepped up at work and his daughter has been helping schedule aids, make dinner and give him his meds. I just always wonder how little things get ignored. It makes me crazy when a light is burnt out. They all ignore it and just use a different light. I swear, they would walk around with flash lights if they all went out rather than change a bulb. LOL!!! Maybe I am just OCD...not sure.  Little things like that make me nuts.  I am back to working in an office setting and there is so much going on with the company I work for. We are all waiting to hear things will proceed and praying there will not be job losses but again, time will tell.

I am very focused on my vacation in September with my mother - I am ready now!!! Feeling like I need a break with all the current unknowns in my life.  But, in the end, God's will be done and I know I will be right where I am supposed to be. I will also keep you all posted along the way! HUGS TO YOU ALL!

  1. One day at a time is all we can do and all we are responsible for. God takes care of the rest.

  2. We are always getting emails about how things are merging and changing here at work. I just keep hoping it will take long enough that someone will be out of office and someone else will fix it lol. God 30's and still at home. Please let my kids all move out by 30.

    1. LOL! That's life here to a tee!! The only thing that is constant is change! LOL!!! I think these two were planning to live with him forever although having to help him may put his daughter out sooner than expected so she can leave the responsibility of care with her brother and the care takers that come during the day! LOL! I think she has already mentioned moving out a few times-LOL!
