Stress level at the moment = high. This morning and last night = low. Life is a roller coaster. Would it be boring if it was fine, just fine?
I had the kind of night I love last night: sitting on my porch with my fan blowing on me and my laptop on my lap. I stayed out till dark. The ruby-throated hummingbirds not only spent a lot of time at my feeders, but one stayed perched atop a shepherd's hook supporting one of them for minutes on end. What wondrous creatures hummingbirds are. I think we only have this one variety in MD. Too bad for us. So good for me that an activity like this recharges my batteries and for a while, at least, makes everything right in the world.
Actually, things are pretty good. My relationship with my daughter has been good for a while now. I relaxed about some things and it made the world of difference. Who said conventional is the only way to go? Things are good with Rob. Work is always good. The garden is looking great. My weight is still down. My knees hurt, but I think they'll get better.
I brought my mother home from the rehab center today. Both parents are now in the same facility. I mean house! I spent 12 hours with my father on Monday. 6 hours with them today. My mind is a highway right now and it's rush hour traffic. So many details are in my head, but they need to be right now until I get them figured out. I'm talking mostly about multiple doctor's appointments and home visits for both for OT, PT and visiting nurses. It will all work out...I'm sure of that.
It's brutally hot today. If the pool were open I'd be so happy cause I'd be in the water. I was so anxious to leave my parent's house, but it's too hot to do anything outside. So, I'm at Caribou Coffee having a strawberry banana smoothie. It's very delicious. My stress level is going down. I think I'll head home. Mow the lawn. Order a pizza. Sit on the porch. Sound good? It does to me.
