...and She Slept.
I am feeling my age more than ever now. I am not even 50 (yet), but with God as my witness, I feel like a decrepit old woman by the end of the day. The one bright spot is coming home to Bud each night. He greets me at the car door, and takes whatever parcels I need to take in (purse included) so I don't have to carry it. When you have been on your feet the better part of 12 hours, once you sit, you are doomed. It only takes me 15 minutes to get home, but once my body has stopped moving, it doesn't want to move any more.
I rarely make it to bed before 11pm, and I am up by 6:45. I have learned to get ready for work in 20 minutes, from getting dressed, checking my blood sugar, eating breakfast (which I loathe--never have liked eating first thing in the morning, but it is a necessity with my diabetes), and taking my daily Januvia. I haven't had any of my other meds in months, but I don't think I need them. My feet do not swell like they used to, mainly due to the weight loss. My heart pills--well, of course I should be taking them, but can't afford them right now. I just have a "sluggish" heart--it pumps blood out fast, but it is slow to refill with blood and the blood tends to pool in my heart, increasing my risk of stroke due to blood clots. Yeah, I know--get the damn meds.
I have a job interview this afternoon. Hoping I get it, as I physically cannot do this job much longer. The job I am interviewing for is 32 hours a week, with weekends off. WEEKENDS OFF! Haven't had a job like that in many, many years. It would be nice to get my life back. It would be nice to actually get to spend time with my husband and furry family.
Last night, I got home at about 7:30pm. Bud had made creamed chicken and biscuits, and it tasted so good! I had to get my feet up, so he agreed to watch a movie with me in our matching recliners. I took a flexeril to relax my muscles so I could sleep. We were in bed by 10:30, and I slept. I slept until 9am. Wonderful, heavenly sleep. Forgot how much I miss sleep. Boy, was it much needed!
