WTFE Wednesday: Quiet Time

I have been a bit withdrawn the last week or so. Nothing really wrong, just needed a little space, hence no post last week.

It has been an odd week. My Dad is in the hospital, his potassium  levels have been through the roof, so they have him on IV fluids and whatnot to try to get that leveled so he can have a heart cath done...again.

Sunday I got up at 7 because we were supposed to go to the lake, but it was raining when we got up. I stayed up till 11 am and then took a nap until 4 pm because I wanted to stay up late and watch the M*A*S*H marathon that was on TV, which I did. I did not get done with that till midnight, then had dishes and other stuff to do, and since I had to get up at 5am to go over to my Mom's to watch the kids I decided to just stay awake since I would just toss and turn and finally fall asleep a hour before I had to get up, so I said to hell with it. I was okay for the most part, I sat in my Dad's recliner and watched like 20 episodes of Hoarders on my parents On Demand, which was nice. I wish I had cable lol. 

After we got home, around 6, I parked it on the couch and watched TV for a few hours and finally got to bed around midnight. Slept for 8 hours but that is really not enough for me when I was up for 32 hours right before!

I have been here otherwise, I have just been in a withdrawn kind of mood. I am not in a bad mood or anything, just feel that "I need to be kind of alone" vibe I get from time to time.

Lets see, what else? Oh Jack fixed the three kitchen drawers, which is awesome, I can finally use them, and as they would not open for several years, I found a lot of knives and other pointy objects in the drawers, some mine, some I do not remember ever seeing before lol. Nice to have that space to use!

Jack is going to Home Depot Friday to see what kind of colors they have in their reject paint section, and to get a couple of sample cans in two colors so I can sponge paint Alex's walls finally. I hope they have an acceptable blue color that I can use in my bedroom, and Jack brought me some white paint to finally paint the bathroom door and the cabinet in there. Maybe even get some tile for in there if he finds something that will match.

I am in a project mood, just need the supplies to do it lol.

Nothing much else going on really. I have been putting of folding the laundry and I need to get off my duff tomorrow and get that squared away and go through my closet and Alex's clothes as it is time to try to start getting school clothes and supplies for her. School starts on the 18th of next month.

So it has just been quiet time for me. Hopefully it will go away soon and I will poke my head back out and contribute to something lol.

Have a great week folks!

Sending good juju to your dad. Hope things are looking up there. I know it can be hard on the heart for a parent to be in pain.

I had that withdrawn thing too this week, so yes, the feeling may very well be universal. Just remember that good self-care during those times is crucial. The better you are to yourself, the sooner you'll feel fit for human company again.
