This has been a rough week - I wrote about it in 3 posts HERE.
One of those weeks that leaves you feeling exhausted, weak, and weary. I have had so many emotions this week - with a lot of tears.
I told Rick that I was just tired IN taking care of him - and thankfully, he understood, no offense taken.
But I am tired OF taking care of myself. Just in that place that I want to be loved on, taken care of. No worries about food or drink. Nothing to do for just a little while. I want to know that Rick is taken care of. I just want to sleep a while!!! Is that selfish? Is that wrong? Maybe not ... but seems pretty unattainable! Especially this weekend. Sigh.
Last we heard Rick's parents are going with us. I hope it will be a good trip - regardless of who goes with us, and who doesn't.
I think we will look to see if there are any sights to see, or things to do along the way - cheaply! Make more of this trip than just a doctor's appointment.
Looking forward to seeing Al & Christine again. They are so special to us. Family, yes. But oh so much more than family! Friends! Precious treasures!
But, I miss Mandy ... between her work schedule this week, and our doctors/hospitals ... and now they are out of town for the weekend ... we will be out of town at least 2 days next week -- yes, I miss her!
And I miss Joshua and Dessie ... goodness! I haven't seen them since Labor Day. How much I would LOVE to sit with them and just listen to them. Hear their voices and see their faces. Feel the touches of my grandkids - all of them. Sigh. Kinda oofie today for the wind beneath my wings.
