Well, I am happy to report that my mom finally got to leave the hospital yesterday. It was a rough 9-10 days, but she is doing much better. My dad and I spent a couple of days getting me added as a signer on their bank accounts so I can help them with their bills, etc. My mom has always handled all this stuff, so with my mom being sick, he is totally lost. He was so relieved when I volunteered to help them. To me, it is no big deal, I am an accountant by day, so its pretty easy.
I finally got some real exercise in on Thursday and Friday - just did a lot of walking and I could really feel it yesterday. I have slept so much better the last couple of nights too. Yesterday though, while talking to my sweetie on the phone, I just suddenly got real emotional and started crying. I hadn't seen him hardly at all in the last two weeks, because he was camping with his family while I was at the hospital. And he works 2 jobs during the week, so weekends are our only real time together. So, just missing him, the stress of my mom being sick and being exhausted totally caught up to me.
After we got off the phone, I went for another walk, felt better. Just took it easy when I got off of work. And went to bed early. I was still feeling pretty wiped out this morning and seriously considered doing nothing. I just wanted to make some coffee, read the paper, watch tv and mainly be a bum. But I pushed thru it, took a shower, went to my WW meeting and then did a couple of errands. I didn't get everything done, but at least I got some of it done. I cleaned house when I got home, washed all my throw rugs, made some lunch and now I am just relaxing. My sweetie should be here soon - and I think we will be going to dinner.
Tomorrow, I think I will be going with a friend to see Toy Story 3. And then need to finish the rest of my errands.
