So many things have happened over the past two months. I had a birthday on April 19, I’m getting very close to the middle age status and have yet to accomplish much. I have a goal to lose weight before my next birthday, and it is proving to be a lot harder than anticipated. Since hitting 35 it has become harder and harder to get weight off…though I eat fruit and veggies and exercise, it still plateaus. I am going to need to have my jaw wired shut. <hehe>. My neurologist is not going to be happy with me, I’m getting close to my six month check-up and our goal was that I would be exercising three times a week, not happening. <boo> I’m attempting to be a better patient. Learning to be and make time for myself to become the best me that I can be.
We had a visit from CMS (Medicare/Medicaid)/State the past couple of months…it’s amazing how often you are required to wash your hands when dealing with a patient. I will need a second layer of skin. But hey, we passed inspection!! Through it all I was learning to be the best person possible, and how to give the best patient care possible. I worked on the floor for four days straight, I haven’t worked the floor “full time” since July 2014. It was interesting and different than the ER. I love the continued patient care and interaction with families. But through the stress of working the floor, that I haven’t been on for over a year, and having state watch my every move…I was learning to be. Learning to be the best I can. Learning to be the person I need to be.
Summer has hit hard and hot. We had a great spring, with rain and cool temps, then we woke up this week and it’s hot enough to melt your face off. Attempting to be outside more than five minutes can cause one to turn into a puddle of water. That’s hard on an old fat person…being able to move, breath, and function can be a challenge. <LOL>
So many things have happened. So many things that I have had to roll with. Learn from. Do I always succeed? NO. I have a ‘scapegoat” that I vent to, go off on, and whine to when things do not always go as I think they should. Is that right? NO. I am trying to be a better person, learn to roll with the punches and just be. I don’t always portray the perfect christian attitude, I can sometimes be found without a smile on my face. I owe this person my kidney basically…or something of equal or greater value. She deserves it and so much more.
This is a major Hodge-poge of “things”…but it’s what is on my mind as I sit at home on a Friday night after an eventful day. Life is good…though I’m old, fat, and learning to be.
