Survive

Survive

I’ve survived so many things in my life from breast cancer, depression, and now a tough school year.  Yes, when I said tough means it was.  I survived the transfer to a different school, working in a different environment, changing the old routines for new ones, dealing with a different staff, adding more responsibilities, and a horrible winter.

Tomorrow (Friday) it will be the last day of school and it’s time to take a break. I will miss the smiles, the “have a nice day”, and the “was for lunch”. As for now I want to enjoy the summer and my grandkids. After all its well deserved it.

Unmoored

Unmoored~ I’ve never heard this word before, possibly because English is my second language. However, I google the word for a definition and I didn’t get it. So, I decide to look for quotes that it will help me to understand the word “unmoored”.  Lately the words are being used on the daily prompt it doesn’t inspire me to write and this is one of them. This is the close quote I find that can mean something so here it is.

 

Also, I’m excited its getting close for the end of the school year. I’m ready for vacation and to pick up my girls in Arizona.

In exactly seven days it will be the end the school year. No matter how excited I can be about summer vacation, I’ve the qualms about being off for three months without a paycheck. My husband doesn’t want me to find a temporary part-time job. He constantly reminds me how short the summer can be in North Dakota.  Also, I’m picking up our granddaughters in Arizona the following day. They will be spending the summer with us. Our first plan for the summer would be camping at the lake. It’s their favorite place.

 I know I worried too much and after a while of rethinking I realize everything will be okay. My husband wants me to enjoy and relax, especially after being suffering with depression almost the entire winter. What can I say I married a wonderful man and after 34 years he still shows how important I am to him.

Pink

The reason why my girls love the color Pink:

Girl # 1 (12 years old)

It makes me feel pretty

It makes me feel like a princess

It makes me happy

 

Girl #2 (10 years old)

It makes me smile

It makes me feel strong

It makes me feel super powers

 

Two different responses on why they love Pink.  So, I ask myself why I also love this color. Since I can remember different shades of pink has been my favorite color of course next to purple. What a combination. Pink makes me feel all the responses my girls just gave me over the phone. Also, the pink ribbon reminds me of my battle with breast cancer and symbolizes the courage and the fight for a cure.

Temporary

My dad has rotator cuff in his right shoulder and he always is in pain. However, the last couples of days the pain has been awful. I hate seeing him in pain and I feel helpless. I get depressed watching him feeling miserable. I call the doctor and he came a few hours ago. He gave him an injection of cortisone. The injection would cause him a temporary relief and it would last for a few months. At least I know he would sleep and feel better. After he went to bed, I went for my walk and now we can all have a good sleep.

Feeling Better!

I began watching what I eat and walking about a two months ago. Since then I’ve lost 20 pounds. I’m taking medication and I supposed its helping, too.  I’ve my days where I wake up feeling depressed and feeling lost. However, going walking every afternoon has been helpful. I love my walks, especially when my husband comes with me.

In two weeks, I’ve a checkup with my doctor and I anxious to see how my blood levels would be. It’s great when you feel healthy and stress free. I’ve my ugly moment; however, I feel I can control myself much better.
