Romans 14:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Mike was up at 9 this morning and didn’t get dressed. He sat on the sofa in his robe. Then he asked what was going on today, I told him Bennett House. He got very upset and asked if this was going to be his life from now on! I told him it’s what the doctor wants him to do and he was angry and stated, “Well no one asked ME what I wanted!” I told him he could take it up with the doctor and I would be happy to make an appointment for him to go in. He dropped the subject and went to take a shower.
In a much better mood, he was ready to go about 11 but then refused to get into the car. He said he didn’t have to leave the house yet, and he was going to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee. I didn’t say anything, I just gathered my stuff together and prepared to leave. Finally, at 20 after 11 he said “okay, let’s go” and we took off. Once I got him there, I was super busy, I went from the Bennett House, to the doctor’s office, to the bank, the electric company, bought groceries, got them home, put away and back to pick him up by 2:30. He wanted a strawberry shake, so I took him to Baskins Robins, got him a shake, then off to the chiropractor. We finally got home at 5 and he went to the family room to watch tv for the rest of the evening.
I was not able to give Mike the letter from the doctor today – to much going on, and timing wasn’t good. I will have to do it tomorrow. Our son is planning to be here at 1:30, depending on how his morning & early afternoon goes, and once he arrives I will give the letter to Mike.
I have 90 minutes tomorrow to finish my errands. Mike gets picked up at 10:30 and I have to be back home by noon, so I am here when he get dropped off again. I had one person tell me to take some time for myself and I can honestly say I get to do that once in a while. Usually on a Monday. I meet friends, have coffee, and good visits. Otherwise, I am busy around the house and yard. I’ve been cleaning the garage, putting together my raised garden beds, and organizing my closet. Progress is slow, because I am doing all this alone, but I am moving forward as much as possible.
