Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
Mike slept late today. I needed to run to the pharmacy to get information on various medications and it took a lot longer than I anticipated. I ended up being gone about 2 hours. I left at 11:30 am and got back at almost 1:30 pm. Mike had only been up about an hour to an hour and a half when I got back. He hadn’t taken his morning meds, so I got the packet I made and handed it to him to take.
Mike, also, hadn’t eaten anything and I fixed him some coffee and a grilled cheese sandwich, and he didn’t want dinner – he filled up on peanut butter cheese crackers. He seemed content with that. I am finding that Mike’s mood is affecting mine and I don’t feel like doing anything.
I am not getting anything done in the house, it’s getting closer and closer to Christmas, and I’ve lost my motivation. I know I’ll get it back, but I need to get several things done prior to Christmas morning and it’s difficult without the motivation! My 1st priority is to get the tree put into place, and begin to decorate – I’ve decided to use a really small tree this year and probably no ornaments, just lights. I don’t know where the ornaments are anyway! Someplace in the shop.
I am needing to finish up my shopping, and I am also needing to make sure Mike is doing okay, it’s quite a balancing act. I have asked my church for someone or two to take Mike to coffee a couple of times a month, but so far there’s been no response. It may be because the Holidays are upon us, the virus nonsense, and they don’t want to deal with Mike’s issues even for a little bit. Who knows? I am truly guessing here.
One of the ‘play’ things I did today was put soft butter into a silicone mold to make rose shaped butter pats. They didn’t turn out perfect, but they were okay. It’s going to take me some practice to get it right. I’ll keep trying.
It’s been a great day. Have a good evening.
