Getting in a routine again is just what I need. I started the new home health job. It is going to be a breeze. Except, that until that car appears I will be making 3-4 , 5 mile round trips a day to and from their home. It will take longer to ride there then for actual time at the house. The hubs of the sweet little lady with dementia has made it worth my while, so I will ride. Like the wind! He really wants to keep her at home. I love old people. I am also set to get another client, so I think I am going to be ok. At least for a while.
Yesterday my knee was killing. I am not going to be able to walk 4 miles and then ride 20. Not right now. My daughter is letting me borrow her bike. Mine is a Goodwill special and is very old and hard to pedal. If the wind is blowing ( like yesterday) it's a killer. Luckily I was able to catch a ride all day to work. Back and forth. This morning I walked around 2 miles and I only have to ride to work once. The rest of the day I have a ride. I have the best friends ever! I am hoping that this will give the old knee a chance to feel better
Had my son and his GF over for dinner last night. It was nice. It has been kind of weird since they still work at the school and I don't want to toss around my negative feelings. Better talk of more important things. Like the wedding. I never realized how much time I spent bitching about that place. I am so glad to OUT of there and away from all the craziness. It really was a blessing.
Food was not so good yesterday. Though the scales showed me down yesterday morning from the scary high from the 1st of the week. I have lots of free time and I need to get a hobby. I can only straighten and organize just so much. I've even started watching Oprah again. Not so good for Dana. Once the knee feels better and the temps DROP (fingers crossed.....I have pretty much decided that this summer is going to last till Spring.) I can get out and about more.
Still have some hope that the old employer will soften their hearts and be fair with me about the back vacation. Note, I said some hope. I am prepared to move forward with filing my claims if not. I am over feeling anxiety over it all. I am prepared to stand up for myself. No matter what it takes.
Keep the mood and the food real.............stand up for YOU.
