Sorry I have been AWOL

It's been a crazy week. I have a kidney infection. Most of you know when you are sick that it throws your whole body into a tizzy. :) mine was already protesting since the accident back in September. Add a fall into the all ready crazy equation and you have me. I slept all day Thursday. Most of Friday. On Saturday I drove some friends to a Ladies Day meeting at a neighboring church. Got home Only to learn that instead of deer hunting - my dad had driven himself to the hospital. He is a retired Major and one of the most stubborn men I know. He waited until.after I had left and my brother - who came to pick him up to go hunting had left. Then with a blood pressure of 60/42 he drove himself to the hospital.

So.. My hands are full.

I am also getting some friends together for a Santa project I started doing about 19 years ago. It starts the day after Thanksgiving and goes until the day before Christmas.

I need more hours in a day, a new body and the scarecrow song from The Wizard of Oz? If my life were a movie that would be my theme song.

Lol cool way to wake up. I can just day breathe hon. Take each thing and use baby steps...nap if needed no guilt, delegate and let others take the lead when you can. Hope your dad feels better.

Mimikay you sound like the type of person who likes to keep busy and takes on far too much at one time but also gets great satisfaction when it all comes together.
I hope your dad is ok, that is very low blood pressure and he's lucky he didn't pass out. He sounds like he is very stubborn but you may want to point out that if he had an accident because he fainted while driving not only could people could get very hurt and he get into a heap of trouble.....don't want to put a downer on your dad but I've recently had to take how medication and all that sort of thing into consideration and what would happen if I caused an accident.

If you want me to help with the cards or anything just let me know.

Take a deep breath and take things easy and ask for help if you need it xx
