Homecare agency had to cancel at last minute today, fortunately my new patient this afternoon cancelled so I was able to get home before my son’s bedtime. CMM must be feeling a little better today, he’s online ordering a fruit basket lol!
Honestly, my oldest son has been such a giant help - I couldn’t do this without him. He’s a good soil, and it’s fortuitous that he works the graveyard shift.
I haven’t heard anything back from my ex. (I did send him a text yesterday letting him know I had sent him an email and he acknowledged that, so I presume he has read it). This is his typical M.O. when he’s going to say no - a long pause, keeping everyone on tenterhooks, while he composes a response which paints him as the poor put upon person instead of a cheap father who won’t help his kids. Oh well. I should be used to the idea that this is who he is now.
Merry Christmas everyone. I know for many of us it doesn’t look like what we expected, or what our past Christmases looked like. Some of us are grieving. Some of us are separated from our loved ones. BUT - new traditions can be started, friends can share in the Christmas celebrations, the pandemic won’t last forever. We are all phoenixes that have risen from the ashes. Share love today, call your friends and family, sing some carols, embrace what is and what can be in the future.
Still here, just muddling through the month. Awaiting the final episode of Station Eleven, which comes out tomorrow - my son and I have been really enjoying this show (on HBO Max).
My schedule is reduced but it doesn't really feel like it - beginning of the year post-holiday break work pile-up, transitioning to online prescribing, numerous Covid-related patient calls, post-grief fog - all has combined into me still not getting home early despite my schedule reductions. Thank goodness I didn't have a full schedule this month.
Still, got my bills paid and estimated taxes paid, hope to get more organizing done in my home this weekend, slowly but surely. I've also been keeping up with the Thousand Mile Challenge which I plan to actually finish this year.
