Left Alone On A Saturday Night!

Saturday, January 05, 2019

I had the house to myself from 6am to 4pm while my youngest son was at work. He was home for an hour and a half then left to go gaming with my oldest son and friends. They didn't ask me along tonight because I am not a gamer, not even close. I have other things to attend to tonight anyway. So I have the house to myself for the night also.

Who knows what kind of trouble I can get myself into being left alone, LOL. I have been thinking about moving my bed into my oldest son's old room, as well as the desk and vanity. I can leave the dressers in there, and turning my room into an exercise room. The bad thing about doing this alone is that I will somehow hurt myself. It is hard for me to accept that I can't o something that I had no problems with years ago.

My late husband made me strong both physically and mentally. My oldest son was talking to me yesterday about girls and them asking to carry things because it was heavy, he said I just laugh because it is not at all heavy. He said on the other hand if I were to tell him to help me carry something, he says to himself OMG this is going to suck because it IS heavy. LOL.

My overall goal is to get back to where I was if at all possible before cancer came along that required chemo to kill it which in turn ripped me to shreds. I am still fighting back from the effects of Chemo!

Right now I am thinking about how I would arrange each room, I am good as long as that is as far as it goes.

    Interesting blog. So you're a work in progress...coming back from chemo and that's going to take some time for you to get strong again. In the meantime ask both your sons to help you with doing whatever it is that's too much for you at this moment. Make a list of what needs doing and have them help decide the time accomplish it. If you can make an educated guess as to the amount of time required for the task that will also make it easier to enlist their help. Kids sometimes think it's going to take all afternoon when it may only be an hour of planned execution to get the job done.

    Prayers going out for your continued recovery.

    I sometimes think change is good and at times needful for a fresh start. Please DO ask for help
    and just keep in mind how you want things. Others will understand and should be glad to help out.
    (My spine completely fused itself together over 20 yrs. ago and I have chronic neck strain) It is SO
    important to not do beyond the capabilities of my body). .. Set-backs are not fun. I wish the very best
    for you!

    emoticon we once looked at a home that had a "sanctuary" off to the side of the Master ~ I have forever thought it would be wonderful to have a wellness/sanctuary area for self-care/me-time ~ it is fun to imagine and I hope you figure out what will work for you! (& I also remember when I could shop, cook, rearrange the whole house is a day... ;)

    IT's hard to know what we were able to do before has changed, but you're fighting your way back. THAT'S the good part. You haven't given up!

    Glad you had your alone time. We all need that from time-to-time.

    I know the feeling...even though I always had to have help with moving stuff around, after breaking my shoulder a couple months ago, I can't do anything! emoticon Best to be careful, accept our limitations for now. As time goes on, we will get our abilities and strength back.
    Hope your room arranging works out and you're happy with it. Take care. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Yes, remember to care for you body and to not abuse it. Even without the chemo, our bodies lose strength and resiliency over time. We must work with what we have, care for it and try to keep it strong, but always remember and respect its limitations.

    Enjoy your time alone. I also have issues moving furniture and such due to arthritis. But I am learning to wait until someone is around to help or I will suffer later. Use your alone time to read a good book or dance away your cares. Good night.

    So you cannot be left alone or else everything gets turned around emoticon What you're doing is the best, first plan what to do and when your kids are able to help you, go ahead and start doing the changes. Change is good!
