Notice the theme this week? Unfortunately I had to spend another couple of hours with my current "negative" person (dad) and it took me a couple of hours afterwards to regain that peace and joy I felt when I woke up.
Didn't have much time to accomplish much as far as school as I had to leave for dad's doctor appointment, but it worked out that Isaac's community worker was coming at 9 and they went out somewhere today so they were gone until 11. Maegann stayed home. Dad's appointment was with the back specialist and the verdict was significant arthritis in the lower back just as we figured from the initial scan about a month ago. He now has to go to a pain management doctor for an injection and help with better pain meds. Again today dad was very much in panic and depression mode so I heard it all again today over and over and over. I told the nurse at his Assisted Living residence that I was talking with his general practitioner next week about the antidepressant and that the worrying/panic has increased.
After that I met Tim and the kids at Subway for lunch as he was helping get them fed while he was on the way to his dentist appointment as dad's doctor visit took extra long again (waited 45 minutes for the doctor's 3 minute talk). Ran a couple quick errands on the way home and then got busy organizing. I think that is when I began calming down. Air1 on the radio and doing what I enjoy...organizing. I still have more to do, but it is coming along!
Most of the boxes I went through today were scrapbook related and that kept Maegann busy as she pulled out the embossing powders and made some cards to send to her friends. Only thing I need to have her help with is sorting the rubber stamps and organizing them by types (Christmas, birthday, etc.) We have too many, but they fit in a fabric container!
I also started a box of things that are going to co-op on Monday for giveaway or donation to our supplies.
Tim and Isaac are heading off for Upwards basketball practice and I'm taking Maegann to Claires and Target as she has a couple of things she wanted to look for and figured it would be a good thing for us to do without Isaac in tow.
My breathing is so much better today. I haven't noticed being winded at all, but I am going to tell the trainer to take it easier on me in the morning so I don't overdo it so soon.
Tomorrow... trainer, Isaac is with his community worker from 9-11 and then we are heading to Boise to meet the gal that does Isaac's budget paperwork for us throughout the year to get his new plan ready to submit. Supposed to meet her about 1 so I figure we will go to Chick filA for lunch on our way. And then once home....organizing!
