I am grateful for so many things in my life.
Every single day.
This is too many things...the meal, the person, what made them important...what made the meal important. I just need to get through breakfast...
Long night of NO sleep as my Hospice lady needed to walk around and doze on the couch or chair or other chair...to be comfortable. This is not uncommon but it does make sleeping impossible.
That's what naps are for!
Sleep is such a balancing act.y job requires I maintain a certain level of awareness 24 hours a day...and a level of cheerful good will and positivity for most of that time. I sleep on the couch....that is very comfortable...listening to people breath through a baby monitor and for the sound of bed alarms. I do alright for the most part. It is a routine. But I feel the sleep debt building up and on my days off I try and catch up.. But I can't walk away from that heightened state of awareness that my job demands.
I would give a lot for 2 good solid nights of sleep in a row. No phone or worries or stress...but that is a fantasy. Funny what I fantasize about these days.
Goosestepping? Isn't this politically incorrect?
Rainy and cool this morning.
I easy way to add fruit...maybe eat a piece of fruit? That seems easy but this might be a trick question.
Have a good monday!
It always amazes me that some people rarely set foot in their library. It is one of the first resources I check out whenever I move someplace new.
Hope everyone has a great Sunday!
I read the challenge and all I could think of was the thing we used to do as kids where you press the back of your hands against a doorway and when you finally let go your hands float up...
Anyone else? Or is this one all me?
Busy busy day started too early. Enjoy the day!
I take care of people who fare much better if we keep as close to the same routine as possible. I intentionally limit the changes in our daily routine because it keeps things much more peaceful.
That being said, I will try and fit in a bit of diversity where I can, for myself. A new stretch or something.
I am taking my 85 year old dementia patient for a haircut today. Challenging? Amazing what is retained...years of going to the barber outweigh dementia. Muscle memory.
It isn't snacking...it's tasting and every cook knows you have to taste things while you are cooking. Plus we all know those calories don't count. Calories you consume while standing up never count.
Waking up early to a rainy foggy morning here in the middle of Connecticut.
Green tea...made in the microwave! There is new research that says that tea made in the microwave is better for you than all that brewing stuff...and before people get all bent out of shape because I am critical of the ceremony and ritual of making tea...I am merely reporting factual data. I believe the ritual of making tea contributes to it's overall effectiveness...calm, peace of mind.
Pfft...it all tastes like dirt to me anyway. Coffee is better for ME.
