Good Morning Everyone! Everything is going well for me. I am getting my energy back and it feels great. Yesterday was my cardio today and today will be Upper Body. I am still learning my body and like Kim has said, enjoy the process. I have to continue to remind myself that there is no finish line. I am learning about me and body and what it can do. That is very exciting and I am happy to be able to focus on that now.
My neighbors mother is in the hospital and she hasbeen spending all her time there. So I have offered to making her family dinner tonight. I made the homemade spaghetti last night and today I will run to the store and get bread and stuff to make cookies. Dinner will be: spaghetti and turkey meatballs, Salad and chocolate chip cookies for dessert. It makes me feel good to know that I can help her in some small way while she is going through all this.
I had an interview for a personal care giver job last night. It would be Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays from 3-9. It is for a 32 year old man who is paralyzed. He does not speak but is able to communicate. It scares me a little just because I am want to do everything right. But I guess there isn't such a thing. I can focus my attention on helping him and doing the best that I can. I must give myself a break because I haven't done this before it will be a learning process but could be a great growing experience for me. They have two other people they are going to interview and will be making a decision next week. The pay isn't a lot but at this point I think it would help me get some of my nursing skills back and put me out in the "world" again. Since the kids have been gone I feel such a big void in my life. What a good way to fill it than my helping someone who needs "me".
Things are good and I am feeling Joy in my heart. It can't get any better than that.
Tomorrow is my official weigh in day I will let you know how it goes.
