Today is the Day
Monday, July 08, 2019
My DH is preparing for his surgery later today. We have about an hour before we need to leave home. I have to admit, I'm a bit anxious about all this. But yesterday we learned that my step-son will be at the hospital with me and he is bringing our two grandsons - so the wait time won't be boring!
I have every confidence that this fairly minor surgery will resolve the problem and life will begin to go back to normal - although I'm not really sure what normal is anymore. So I suppose we will have to redefine our lives. I am hopeful that DH will be spending more time in his art studio downstairs so I can have my space upstairs back. While I have enjoyed his company, it's been a challenge for me to do the things I normally do with him spending so much of his day in the living room watching Hallmark movies or some of the things he's taped (I know that term dates me).
Our 5% Summer Challenge began on Saturday and at least over the weekend I was able to get in my 120 minutes of exercise. Yesterday morning Daisy and I finally got in a 2 mile walk. Today only a mile and I have no idea what the rest of today will bring. I expect there will be some walking just to keep the boys entertained but there will also be a lot of sitting and waiting.
My dear son will be over mid-day to mow the lawn and play with Daisy. My neighbor has a key and she watches her grandchildren on Monday & Tuesday so they will also be checking in with Daisy and playing with her. Apparently they really want Daisy to have a sleep-over with them but I expect I will be home around dinner time or early evening.
Thank you all for your wonderful support during these past three months. I appreciate each and every one of you and also thanks for listening this morning - I feel a bit more calm! Wishing you all a great day.
