How y’all doing?
I’m wanting cookies but don’t want to have to see people. Or put on real clothes. I’m thinking I’ll use the Walmart pickup service and buy $30 worth of chocolate chips for baking and Oreo cookies. (That’s the minimum.) And maybe some ice cream. I can do that in my t-shirt, yoga pants, and slippers.
I miss having my kids home. They were always glad to run to the store for me. They’d get somethings not on my list as well. That was okay. A fair exchange for running mom’s errands.
I miss being able to call Andrew. He was always good for a long talk on a rainy day.
Adam calls almost every day. (He’s moving close to home next week! After living 18 hours away the past five years!)
Ron’s gone this week. I took him to airport at 4 this morning. So I’ve got the house to myself this weekend.
Changes I’ve seen in myself since The Accident:
- I don’t like seeing people or going out in public. It saps my energy. (I’m usually glad once I do go.)
- I avoid shopping. Nothing seems necessary any more. I don’t like to waste money on trivial things.
- I love being home. Peaceful.
- I love quiet. Again. It’s peaceful. And safe.
I’m not depressed. I just don’t like all the small talk. I find most folks don’t want to talk about the deep stuff.
Anyway, I’m just wondering how you are doing. How are you today?
I’m having an alone, rain day. Nap is on the schedule for later. And reading a good book.
Mother’s Day is over. Graduations and proms have happened. Summer is about to start.
So, I have a few questions. What are you doing to help yourself (and your family) heal? What steps have you taken towards recovery? What are you planning to do this weekend to help yourself and those around you? And to glorify Jesus? Anything fun and festive planned? Are you reaching out to make a new friend or deepen existing relationships?
This picture is just fun.
