Sometimes life can get hectic, stressful, exhausting and downright NUTS! That is how things have been around here lately and tonight I have reached a point where I need to forget all of the "need to's", "have to's", "shoulda's", "coulda's" and "woulda's"....and just concentrate on resting and restoring. I need some time to simply "BE".
On Tuesday the first man I ever loved will enter the hospital to have yet another cancer removed from his lung. Barring any contagious illness that I wouldn't want to pass on to my dad, I will be going with my mom to the hospital for the five days until he is discharged...again only if I am completely well. At 80 years of age, with two totally different types of cancer, and in the immediate post surgical period from lung surgery Dad CERTAINLY doesn't need what we have had!
In the midst of all of this I have also been gathering copies of my most recent records to forward to my lawyer in preparation for my Social Security Disability Hearing in May.
There comes a point where you just have to cry "Uncle"!
So tonight, after tucking my dear, sweet, long-suffering hubby into bed, I brewed myself a piping hot mug of Earl Grey tea,
Outside the wind is howling, but in My Scrappy Happy Place the birds tweet and oceans roar in perfect harmony with the soothing strains of Tchaikovsky; while Earl Grey and Wooby warm me inside and out.
