It's a sort of a strange day. I woke up this morning at 5:30am feeling tired but thinking that I had to do something. For a minute I organized my day in my head starting with a hospice visit before I went to work and wondering what the traffic would be like this morning. It finally dawned on me that I had no hospice visits to make now and my days would be different. I rolled over intending to go back to sleep but it's the first time in two weeks that I have allowed myself to think just how much my life has changed. I am feeling a bit lost as if I should be doing something else but I don't know what that is.
I have to go to the chiropractor this afternoon and I'm sure I'll go home to find all kinds of goodies made by my aunts and mom. I hope Mom had a good day with them and she can spend some time talking about "old time stories." I heard quite a few last night and hope to hear some more. Some of them though are not the publishable kinds - you know the ones I am referring to - the skeletons in the family closets. Yes, I've heard a lot of them over the years but they are not my stories to re-tell.
Saturday I had a very nice early Mother's Day with Sunita. I started out with a massage appointment that was Sharm's which she gave up for me. Then Sunita and I went to a movie _Water for Elephants. That was the book I was reading when we were in Mexico last month. After the movie, Sunita and I went out for lunch. I had a great portobello mushroom sandwich and I am finding out that a vegetarian diet could be a very good thing. I've been an on and off vegetarian for years and I am seriously thinking that I could do it again.
I am off to my appointment and then for a 5k training walk. I am now up to $880 towards my Cancercare goal of $2000. Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far. My dad would be very happy.
