It has been a quiet pain filled weekend here. I know when I got the IUD, I did not sign up for this amount of pain. I do hope it gets better over time because even though I have a high tolerance for pain, it is too much.
Yesterday, I didn’t do much except for a few errands and trying some Filipino food for the first time. I loved it. I will definitely be back and I will be more adventurous next time.
Today I went to visit Mom. She was not doing well at all. She was still my little chipmunk chewing away at food that she had pocketed in her mouth. She doesn’t talk anymore, to me at least, and she would not look at me. We were in the community room of her area of the nursing home and I had more conversation with the other women around her table then her. The fact she would not look at me really gets me down. I know her brain is dying. I miss my Mom though and wish I could stop what she will be going through. She has gone downhill a lot and still has a ways to go.
This week, I pledge to:
1. Bring my lunch every day to work.
2. Go to the gym at least 4 times
3. Get up out of bed at the first alarm. Period. (This is going to be the challenge).
4. Read more.
5. Knit some.
All good pledges I think.
