I am going to unload a bit today just because I need to de-stress a bit. Sorry. :(
The hubby is slowing improving and will hopefully be out of ICU today. This irregular heartbeat is holding him back, but at least he is sounding more like himself and otherwise improving. :)
I thought he would be out of ICU by now. Visiting him in ICU is emotionally hard because he is all hooked up to the monitors. Plus I love that all his family and friends and my friends keep texting me to find updates but it is like a whole separate job in itself.
But I can do it.
This running to the hospital is tough because he is 45 minutes away. That's OK, it is near work so when I go back (probably Wednesday), he will be only 5 minutes away. The bad part, now I want to complain a minute, is that this happened during my exams so I need to get grades together for school which I am not mentally in the mood to do. I finished grading exams today and I need to make a little stop at school to see if there's anything else and then hopefully tonight I can post grades and get that job done. Of course if I did put it off all weekend, but I was even less mentally prepared than I was today.
Plus my daughter's car is a VW diesel and needs to be inspected by Thursday. Because of the buy back because of VW's cover up about their diesel engines, and because she has an expensive car repair that has to be done to pass inspection, she's not going to get it inspected and get a new car instead. So I have been nice (probably too nice) and gone car shopping with her in between hospital visits. Not that its been bad (especially since the hubby was still not up to long visits), and she bought a car yesterday which will be picked up tomorrow. But its something else to deal with right now. I guess it is good mother-daughter bonding time. But at least she didn't even need a co-signer for the loan so I am happy she has become a financially independent adult.
What I really need is a bit of me time so I can work through the stress.
After today maybe. Or after tomorrow.
Sorry for the complaints. Sometimes it just feel good to express them to neutral ears.
I did sit on the couch the other night and doodle in my journal. And here's a page I made back at the end of October because I had been naughty and ordered myself a couple of things from Dick Blick.
They had been having a 20% off sale so I got myself a few new toys. New markers , a new journal, some black ink and a couple of black Stabilo pencils. It was a FUN box.
Thank you all for your wonderful messages on my blog. I really appreciate them.
Still working on catch ups so if you left a post and I haven't gotten back I will.
You can tell its just been a little crazy here.
Hope everyone else is having a fun new week!
Thanks for listening.
