I am really touched by this. I hope my words could possibly reach out and touch someone who is in a different place than I am... I hope you'll go check out the Palliative Care Grand Rounds at Alive Hospice.
I'm good at asking for help. I struggle to find it when it involves work before the crack of dawn. We were trying to figure out the logistics of our upcoming Tuesday- Zach's surgery. We have to leave home at 5:30 a.m. to be at the hospital by 6, surgery is at 7. We are normally getting Teagan to school by 7-7:30. Ruh-roh. My mom can't. Christy can but it's tech week of the show she's stage managing so she'd get to our house late Monday night and getting up and going would be a challenge (anyone who has gone through tech week knows what I mean). Jeff's dad is having surgery on Monday... so we hesitated asking his folks for help. But it came down to really having to, you know? Our plan right now is to have Teagan spend the night there Monday night and Mimi will take her to school Tuesday morning. I just hate asking since Pop-pop will be in the hospital, having just had surgery the day before... and she has so much on her plate already (personal stuff on her end).
Anyone looking for something to do really early on Tuesday morning?
We've been family dining most of the week. Sunday evening we had a movie night so we did eat in the living room. Thursday we ate at Subway because I had music team practice at church and, logistically, it just worked out better to meet at Subway. We are struggling a bit with getting Zach adjusted to this idea of sitting at the table and eating- he wants to get up and play and climb under the table. But we are having a great time with Teagan. I love getting details about her day and love it even more when she asks about my day at work. Thank you to my wonderful hubby for getting that task done!
I'd love to hear what you are doing this weekend!! Grown ups have a busy Saturday but we've got it covered. Some friends and I are supporting another friend by singing with him at a memorial service for his ex. Very sad situation all the way around- but I am glad I can do something to support my friend. Jeff has a Dungeon meeting on Saturday- and he will miss part of it so I can go to this memorial service and lunch. But I know he's looking forward to seeing those guys and start talking Dungeon for this year's GenCon. Other than that, it's housework, errands, church on Sunday... no big fun plans this time around!
