I had a busy week that started with no hot water on Monday morning. My dad's normal plumbers were unavailable, but so kindly recommended another company. They were able to come out Monday morning and everything was fixed by noon. Luckily, it was only the thermostat and nothing major. We had a few appointments here and there to take care of, but the majority of time was spent with my mom and other patients.
I am trying to get used to the new schedule that comes with my dad having a driver. I have not met this person and I know it's me that is doing the avoiding. I leave the house before she is scheduled to arrive so I don't have to meet her. I know this might sound ridiculous to many of you, but I'm not even sure why I'm avoiding her. The nursing home is shocked that I'm not with my dad. I told them I had been fired and we are now on different schedules. I know he arranged a driver to maintain his independence and I am ever so grateful that he is independent, yet it makes me feel useless. On the positive side, I was able to get a few errands done - great to get to the stores when there are not a lot of people. I also had a late breakfast with a friend from high school. I will get through this - perhaps I'll feel better when I get a job to keep me busy. So far no luck in the job department, but I'm going to keep trying. I am still trying to find a way to combine my love of coaching with my life in Plymouth.
I have met a few interesting people this past week. My free time offered me the opportunity to try a new breakfast place and to sit/relax over coffee at another place. I am trying to be open to possibilities and extend a smile and positiveness. When I feel myself getting a bit short, I take a deep breath and try to be present in the moment. It provides a different experience and I'm not nearly as frustrated as I was in the past. I hope that my smile and a kind word will have a positive impact on someone else and they can pass that on.
I joined the local church this past week. I attend church with my dad when I'm here, but have not been registered in any church in a very long time. As I mentioned last blog I had to join to be a sponsor for my niece at confirmation. I did have to laugh because I could not get out of the office without receiving my offering envelopes to they can track my contributions. I guess I will leave the envelopes prepared when I'm away so there are no issues with my membership.
I finished reading: "ANATOMY OF THE SPIRIT" by Caroline Mass, PhD. It is about the seven stages of power and healing involving energy medicine. This is one of those book that has been on my shelf for several years and I finally got around to actually reading it. Wow, it's powerful and informative. It definitely got my curiosity up about medical intuitives and healing. What are you reading?
There is going to be a full moon for Christmas. The first one in many years and another one won't happen for many years. It's supposed to be special and when I saw the information all I thought of was how the patients personalities change at the nursing home. The staff will definitely have a workout between the cold bugs going around and now the full moon as well. Do you feel your mood shift during a full moon?
I am going to leave it here this evening. I hope you have a good week. Don't get too stressed out by the holiday rush. Take care. Chat soon. Marie
