Goals out the Window!

Last week was tough for this gal.  Mister has a case of the Shingles and he’s got them in his eye, of all places.  Shingles of the eye are nasty!  As of the writing of this update hubs is being treated for a tear in his cornea. Not good!!!!  Suffice it to say that my teeny, tiny goal list has not gotten my highest priority paid to it this week.  I have had some time to attend to the list while at work, but the rest of it just kinda went out the window.  I did not complete my task.

LAST WEEK’S THREE TEENY, TINY GOALS

1  Create a Gratitude List and add to it every day this week.

2  Research 3 on-line resources for paid writing assignments and choose one to try.

3  Tackle the kitchen cupboards again, releasing more “stuff” into the world.

HOW I DID!

In a word: Abysmal!

The Good News:  I got to the meetings I had committed to attend this week, got the sleep I needed to soldier on, and took care of the mister’s many medical needs, if not in that order.  I feel “good” about the fact that I could achieve as much as I did this week considering what we’ve had to deal with, and I’m glad to report that my lover is some better today.  Our biggest goal as a couple right now is solving the problem my guy’s rather strong pain killers are causing his digestive track.

Metamucil to the rescue!

Hubby is actually using SennaGen and sugar-free chocolates to get the old pipes humming again. Those and lots and lots and LOTS of water!

I did work on a Gratitude List this week, but I did not record my thoughts every day of the week on that list.

OBSERVATIONS

Shingles of the eye is nothing to fool with and will cause you much concern in the healing process.

I’m just one person. I cannot do “it” all alone.

A strong immune system is a good thing, and we should do what we can to support it as we age.

Good friends send humorous cards during trying times, to lift spirits and remind you, This Too Shall Pass!

De-cluttering the cupboards a second time is a ridiculous goal when life issues present themselves. Shingles trumps cleaning every time!

Doctors who have Jersey accents and make farmer jokes in the ER are my kinda people.

THREE TEENY, TINY GOALS FOR NEXT WEEK

1.2.3: Take care of Bob and get him well.  That is my only goal for this week and I think it qualifies for my list because it will take all my teeny, tiny concentration to get ‘er done!

What are your goals for this week?  What are you most thankful for as the holiday seasons gets underway?

Note: Thanksgiving is just 3 teeny, tiny weeks away!

One thought on “Goals out the Window!

  1. Glad to see you found the ability to “feel good” in some accomplishments in the face of difficulty. Finding a spark of light in a dark room takes skill. Hoping this coming week helps bring BALANCE to the events of last week.
