If we were having coffee today, you would see that I’m very tired these days. I haven’t been feeling well but I have not been able to get much rest. I babysit my two grandsons so that my daughter can work. This past week was tough. She got a new job so her hours were very irregular while she went in for training. That meant that I had to get up very early to go watch the boys. I was there by 7 a.m. And then to top things off, the boys’ dad had to work late every day so I was having ten and twelve hour days with the boys. My youngest daughter was visiting from California so she came with me for a couple of hours each day to help with the boys. Unfortunately, that meant we didn’t have a lot of time for just the two of us. But I got through the week! Yay! I think I will be babysitting them tomorrow then I won’t watch them anymore until after I recuperate from my surgery. She still doesn’t have anyone to watch the boys so I don’t know what they are going to do but I’m trying not to let that worry me.
If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that while Blogging From A to Z has been fun, it is also stressful. I’m not able to focus on reading blogs much and that’s part of the A to Z challenge, to go visit other blogs and comment and explore. It is bothering me that I can’t seem to keep up with blog reading this week and I’m realizing that it might not happen while I’m in the hospital. We’ll see. I’ll go prepared to read blogs and see what actually happens.
Thursday is the day of surgery. Now as it approaches rapidly I am getting cold feet. But I really need to get it done. I’m debating if I should write some letters to each of my kids and to the two grandsons. I know it may sound like I am being pessimistic but I think I’m just being realistic. With major surgery, which the doctor says this is, anything can happen on the table or recovery room. I’ve taken a few precautions like putting my mobile home in my daughter’s name and adding her to my checking account and paying as many bills in advance as I possibly can. But now I’m thinking I should write some letters to my kids and leave them here at home, just in case.
Hopefully I will be able to write a few A to Z posts ahead of time so I don’t have to stress about that. In fact, there are three that I’ve posted before that I think I will dust off and use for A to Z this week and with luck, I’ll be able to go to the hospital on Thursday knowing I have the next five or so days taken care of. By next week’s coffee share I might be back home from the hospital. The doctor says two to three days in there after surgery so I may be home Saturday. I will try to post a coffee share to let everyone know how I’m doing but I’m not promising.
How has your week gone? What do you have coming up this week? If you were me, would you write those letters?
If you’re thinking of me on Thursday, send some positive energy, prayers, good mojo, etc., my way. I can use as much as I can get!
Hopefully, I will see y’all next weekend! I hope you have a great week!
