She says as she wipes the sweat from her brow.... What a week!
Our nurse practitioner was out sick three days this week. You would think it would make it easier on the LPN and I. Not so. We both were bombarded with phone calls, requests for medicine refills, requests for appointments at our main clinic, you name it. We decided that it was so hard, because we expected it to be easier. It was pretty much normal day to day operations, but since we weren't expecting it to be so busy, it hit us pretty hard. Does that make sense? I don't know if I have any sense left right now.
SR's great aunt who fell and broke her hip and pelvis is doing pretty well. As with many women her age, she has not purchased any new clothing in years. When SR and I went to her 'apartment' at her assisted living facility, we couldn't find ANYTHING decent to take her to wear while she was in rehab. We were forced to go to Walmart and purchase some new outfits that would be loose fitting and comfortable, yet look like they weren't 10 years old. She also needed something appropriate to sleep in. I have to admit though, it was fun shopping with someone else's money. ;) We bought her three 'warm up' outfits and I was pretty pleased with what we found. They are things she can wear when she's back home and she will be the trendiest old folk in the place.
I agonized over the purchase of the perfect mattress all week. I took Chelle's private suggestion on advisement and prayed. I prayed A LOT. In the scheme of things, this isn't earth shattering or life threatening, but the Lord does want us to give Him our EVERY need. And you know, this is a lot of money and something I will be stuck with for a very long time. I was afraid I wouldn't hear His voice when the time came and by this morning I was a basket case. SR didn't help, as he started giving me suggestions as to what to make sure of, what to ask, yadda yadda yadda. I finally had to tell him he was making me worse and so with a silly grin he shut up. I narrowed it down to two as of yesterday. One saleslady even called me yesterday to advise me they were cutting the 'sale price' even more just for me. Uh huh. I believe that. Anyway, I decided with God's help to go and lay down on both of them again, and then make my decision since now they were both the same price. I think I knew which one it would be from the beginning but was afraid to commit. After that little exercise, God showed me which one to get. I'm SO relieved. It will be in stock tomorrow and by tomorrow night I will be sleeping on my brand new plush, cushy, soft bed. I can hardly wait! Thank you so much Jesus, for speaking to my heart and mind and showing me which one to buy.
Now, what do I do with all the "STUFF" under my bed now? It's gotta go somewhere cause the new bed will be lower than the old bed. There is a very nice hiding place under my bed now..... what to do what to do... here I go again.....
