I’m currently into week 4 of my new job. I’m trying to give myself time to get used to the place, but parts of me are having misgivings. There are a lot of quirks and a lot of systemic issues that I’m uncovering. I think my woek is cut out for me here.
I have training all next week at work (an external auditor certification training) thst is sort of a part of my employment. So— kinda important that I pass. No pressure tho.
Mom is still in skilled care. She was released to home the week before Memorial Day, but she had an issue ans had to call the ambulance. Which meant back to the hospital for the holiday weekend. So much fun, as I was down there keeping her company.
I’m really worried about her. I worry thst the Parkinson’s is catching up and she won’t be able to be in her own much longer. I think she’s worried about that too. I worry about her and then sort of resent her because she was terrible with money and her health for so long and now we’re dealing with the consequences. And then I hate myself for feeling resentful.
I also feel super alone at these times because it’s just me and her. It’s at times like these I really wish I had a partner so that I could have the occasional option of crumbling.
Summer has arrived in Minnesota. It’s really hot— a whole stream of 90° days. I’m honestly not complaining as I LOVE summer. I much prefer to sweat than to shiver.
My weight loss journey continues. I’m still in a bit of a plateau, but it isn’t bad. Just frustrating as I can’t seem to break the 200 barrier. 199 will feel like a major accomplishment when it happens. And I’m really darn close to making that happen. The nice thing is that I’m down like 3 belt notches and folks are noticing!
Nor much else to report. I’m biking a lot and trying to enjoy summer while I can.
