Tuesday is time for sharing Slice of Life, the writing challenge through “Two Writing Teachers”
Here it is after midnight – to me it is still Tuesday! I wanted to head to bed earlier but I am wide awake, tried but not sleepy. Too many things on my mind. I should have just gotten out my journal and wrote for a while and went to bed. But then I remembered I had not written a slice.
Tonight is about dumping my worries:
*my father-in-law was taken to hospital today (in Montreal – an 8 hr. drive) and is not doing well
* my husband’s blood pressure is high (170/60) and his fistula has been swollen and his ahnd and arm have been sore for days. (A fistula is the joining of the artery and vein i at the wrist usually so that the arm can take needles for dialysis. He had dialysis for almost 2 years before his transplant in ’03) His transplant doctor is monitoring him
*my older brother in North Carolina had news today that he needs to have a lifestyle makeover – no smoking/exercise/better foods or else
*my sister’s husband has to have back surgery this week as the spine is disintegrating
*want to write and have some good critiques for 2 novels I have written but just can’t seem to settle for any length of time
*would love to be able to call up someone and just talk, when ever – miss that since our move here.
Okay enough. I think I got most of it out. And it did help – thanks for reading this far and giving support. Just been a bad week.
There have been some bright spots today though:
*my daughter phoned and talked with her for a while
*talked with my sister-in-law and hopefully gave her some support
*read “Tales of a Grade 4 Nothing” – finally!
*am reading “Bird by Bird” and really enjoying it
*flowers are starting to sprout – spring is finally here.
