The spring dance recital is this Saturday. I have my last rehearsal tonight, and then tech on Thursday, dress on Friday and two shows on Saturday. I only have two nightshirts to make and a coat to doll up for Capt Hook. I am so grateful I don't have the whole thing on my shoulders and wonder now how I ever did all that.
I have a specialists appointment for my arthritis today. I have been having some real joint flairs. My left elbow and shoulder and my right hip have been really bothering me. Also I have been having really stiff fingers in the morning. These are not good signs. I am anxious to see what my SED rates are.
I had a few glorious hours in the yard yesterday. I swear the whole garden was covered with weeds. Very small weeds but weeds all the same. I planted and transplanted and I still have several hours of weeding and clean up. I have not planted the potatoes or the onions. I am hoping Hub's will do this. I also had way too much help from the puppy, who wanted to dig up everything I planted. He seems to have learned the word no already, now if I could just train my husband.
When I go to the doctor today, I am going to stop over at two nursery's right by the doctors office. I need cucumbers as my seeds did not sprout, I also have a few holes in my boxes and beds to fill.
I do not like to always think of the future, as I think it shortens the joy of now, but I am really looking forward to this week just getting over. I want to concentrate on Mom. I am going to take her in and see if we qualify for hospice and if not make arrangements for hired help. By the end of May I want action taken. I am tired and I can not do this all myself. Lil sis is a big help but she also works 50 hours a week and needs time. Sis can't come again until August.
Well I need to go find something of dinner and get myself cleaned up, maybe straighten the puppy mess and then do laundry, which is backed up again. I just don't use my time very efficiently and it frustrates me.
Why is my house dirty? Why do I not have a menu plan? Why is there so much laundry? Why am I such a slob? (as in I am terrible about picking up after myself) Why can't I play all day? Why can't I eat anything I want? (like six donuts) Who is going to do the ironing? (remember Sis is not back until August, I will be naked by then) I really have to sew to get people to give me money? Really?
This is what time off does to me.......
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
