Re discussion post: Firsts

I can so identify with the doing only the necessary... I'm not even doing well on that... I was trying but then I got sick and was in the hospital for a week... Home now on iv meds but will be able to go back to work as soon as we get things lined out... Having problems with my iv line... came home Friday... blew my midway line and back to hospital er Sat. Temp line failed Monday am and I'm waiting now for a phone call to go in for a central line... I haven't been to work in over a week... hoping I might get back to work by this Saturday...
I'm doing better about my losses... found my "penny" last night... Trying to get myself organized again to get back in the fray for changing things I feel should be changed... I haven't got a tree up... house needs more work... get Christmas cards out... haven't even finished my thank yous from Cara's death... spending too much time here...

Forget about the tree, make phone calls instead of christmas cards and allow yourself to recover.....from everything.when we lost my father in law i brought up the xmas boxes and stood in the middle of the family room,my hubby came in and said\"whats wrong\"i said \"i don\'t feel like doing this\"it was at least 8 months after our loss and he had been ill for two years so we knew he was dying but i still couldn\'t bring myself to celebrate without him,it was always his favourite time of year and whenever someone was complaining about the work involved he would always bring them around.I put the xmas stuff away and explained to all my daycare families and they were fine with it.I still cry a little for him each christmas.

Hey! PENNIES RULE! You know what I mean.
I loved the Rainbow\'s, I will send them to Travis as well.
I told Travis, I could use another PENNY, just need to know he is here with me.
Guess I will never let go completely.

Love you,
Cat
