One of Those Days!

You know today was supposed to be one of those wonderful days. Instead, let’s just say that God has kept it interesting.

I got up early this morning (and tried to get to bed early, but failed) – has anyone noticed that “tired” and “tried” are only off by switching two letters? Hmm…gotta be something to that…

Anyway, my daughter had agreed to help me clean my house (it needs it – my niece normally does that, but she is now pregnant). My daughter arrived at 9 and I was up and quick to the door.

From then on, though, I was a slug. She helped me with a few things, then got a call from her new job to come in to work. I am not going to argue with that! She left about 10:30 and I sat down at my computer.

I woke up at 1:45! Β  I only woke up to argue with my self for a few minutes before really going to bed for about 30 minutes. I know I am not sleeping well and have stopped my Melatonin so that tomorrow night I can go back on my sleeping meds, at least, for a while. I will simply have to drink regular coffee in the mornings to offset the leftovers of the meds and will just have to tolerate the, sometimes, weirdness of the medicine’s side effects. They aren’t that bad, but I didn’t want them. Two evils, I will take the one that is more fun. πŸ™‚

Next, I was supposed to go out on a date tonight (yes, me, a real one). We had verified via email earlier and were to meet for dinner that evening. I got an email from her son telling me that she had had a stroke and was in the hospital and could not make dinner! Who am I to argue with a stroke? In all seriousness, please offer up some positive thoughts and prayers to Marie in hopes that she does fine and is out soon. Whether we end up out or not, I want her to do well.

So, I called my best buddy and he and I decided to meet for dinner at our favorite restaurant. I lost track of time, once again, and had to make a stop before getting to the restaurant and arrived 15 minutes late, which would not have been bad had he not arrived about 10 minutes early!

The stop wasn’t any better.Β  I remembered that I had an Rx to pick up at the pharmacy and they would be closed before I got back to town.Β  My cell was not charged, so I couldn’t call my buddy again to tell him.Β  I went to the drive through to get my meds and she gave me another of my meds that I wasn’t out of!Β  Silly me to think that you would get the meds you were out of!Β  Anyway, the one I needed had run out of its Rx and the doctor would have to reissue it the next day.

I finally dragged into my home at about 9:10 and had promised myself I would do the dishes regardless before I sat down. So, at 9:55 I got to sit. Now, I remember that I am supposed to do a post tonight. Lol! So, here it is…my mismanaging of a day or better put “One of Those Days”. I hope you can smile at most of this and know that I handle things like this so much better now.

My life is good; God is good; and I always look forward to tomorrow, but enjoy today.
You all help me to do that!

    How weird that you know much about stroke and she had a stroke. Maybe you will be able to offer this lady some comfort. Nice of the son to call you. I hope you get to meet this lady. I am curious. Of course, I focus on that part of the post…hopeless romantic me! Don’t want to think about messy houses. hehehe. You and lostbythesea seem to have some things in common.. πŸ˜‰ wink, wink.
    Hugs to you B.B.

      Oh, Sam,
      I need to change your name from LBS to LMM (Little Match Maker).
      The young lady and I who were to go out, I hope will be good friends.
      I do not expect nor intend anything else; she seems nice, but that’s it, I think, for me.
      As for the other, I should have known…lol…well, I can’t say you aren’t trying to look out for me.
      lol πŸ™‚


    • kindredspirit23  On August 25, 2012 at 12:52 am

      Oh yes, and I don’t find it weird that I know all about the stroke and she has one. God does know what he is doing. What it did was prompt me to write someone who was, at one time, blaming herself for part of my stroke. I wanted to dispel that notion from her mind.

    Gotta love those days Scott! Thank you!!!! Writing (and reading I’m not alone) sets me free!! @buckwheatrisk: My daughter would have died in that bathroom! I discovered early on, the less mess I made the easier the clean up job was. It was all ok when I could physically do most of the inside chores, but now that my body has morphed into the consummate gripless/spineless/footless wonder I find myself trying to psycho kinetically clean and decorate. It does not work! I had had enough last month and finally hired someone to come in 2x a month to pick up the slack. Next step with be for a live-in helper to cook/clean and open those blasted plastic/glass Fort Knox containers! πŸ˜‰


    • kindredspirit23  On August 24, 2012 at 9:53 pm

      Ah, I am somewhat there myself. I have my niece or daughter come in every other month and clean. I need to have it done 2x a month and will, eventually. I think I may have to find someone new however. They can’t keep it up and their own home and work and …


  • ~Lady Day  On August 23, 2012 at 12:33 am

    Well I hate to say it but it made me smile and chuckle a bit. Poor Marie. And yes. Poor you. Wishing you and your would be date all the best. Hugs to you Scott


    • kindredspirit23  On August 23, 2012 at 1:09 am

      I am glad you got to chuckle and I know it was not at Marie. My life is something that I truly enjoy smiling at. People laugh and that helps me deal with it, too. I know that they are laughing with me not at me. We all have these moments. That’s what makes them funny to others.


  • buckwheatsrisk  On August 22, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    well if it makes you feel any better, i got locked in a public bathroom stall yesterday and had to crawl on my belly out from under it…i was so grossed out, my Hubby was laughing at me when i told him…here’s hoping for a better day tomorrow


    • kindredspirit23  On August 22, 2012 at 11:54 pm

      Ok, you win! There are few things that I would be so totally grossed out about. If that happened to me, I would have to wash at the sink there before I could even get in my car to drive home and shower. It seems that one of the things people with traumas in their lives share with those who haven’t had them are “Those Days”. I enjoyed getting that out and sharing it. Perhaps, I should unburden myself with a few more of those, mostly laughable, moments.


      • buckwheatsrisk  On August 23, 2012 at 12:21 am

        ha i didn’t realize that would gross you out too…so i added more to your day lol! yes do unburden more we’re not going anywhere!


        • kindredspirit23  On August 23, 2012 at 1:08 am

          Be warned…I will remember you said that.


        • buckwheatsrisk  On August 25, 2012 at 11:24 am

          what did i say i forget? i just got this now…lol


        • kindredspirit23  On August 25, 2012 at 7:35 pm

          Hmm. Been too long. I don’t remember either. lol
          However, I looked back and you talked about me unburdening myself more. I will! Also, started your book today. Actually knowing you through all this has made the reading a bit harder, more personal. I feel for you much.


        • buckwheatsrisk  On August 25, 2012 at 7:44 pm

          ohhh yes unburden very good! well thank you for reading…i don’t know if you will have read some of it before on my blog but maybe not all. thank you for your kind thoughts…i am still kind of shocked and numb that people find it bad what i went through, it’s weird…kind of hard to explain…i know i haven’t felt even close to the full extent…anyway, i’m just blabbing..


        • kindredspirit23  On August 25, 2012 at 9:30 pm

          It was bad; you just don’t have to feel bad about it. You made it and will continue to do so; there is hope!


        • buckwheatsrisk  On August 25, 2012 at 9:32 pm

          thanks big brother!


        • kindredspirit23  On August 25, 2012 at 9:34 pm

          πŸ™‚ I will take that as very high praise.


        • buckwheatsrisk  On August 25, 2012 at 10:03 pm

          good that’s how it was meant. πŸ™‚


Feel free to say something; I look forward to it!
