Good morning. The sun is shining, and the rain has passed us by. Yesterday's storms missed us, but a tornado did touch down not far from here in Revere, which is east of Boston. Here, we only got a little bit of light rain, and only for a few hours in the morning.
Well, yesterday, I got caught up on washing all the scatter rugs. I'll wait till all the vacuuming is done before putting them down. Maybe later today. I'm going to have to put the AC back on because it is getting warm in here. I'd leave it on low but once the air is cool my legs ache. So then I shut it off for a while. Hmmm, just can't seem to win this one.
I've been doing a bit of thinking lately, and I doubt I will wait till November to retire. I'm thinking that now is probably a good time to do this. In a way, this is unfortunate because I really do enjoy my job. I just don't like the high stress level and the lack of support that we get from the "family". Their response has been "you get paid to put up with her nastiness."
Sorry. I don't believe that is true at all. We are there to take care of her and make life easier for her. But, the family should still be more involved and help make things a bit easier for the caretakers. It's not going to happen though, and the stress is not good for my health. Therefore, it's getting easier to make my decision about retirement.
I called out this past Sunday night, and believe me my stress level was way down. Pogo's stress level was way down too. On weekends, he sticks by my feet like we're glued together because he knows I will be leaving to go to work. Sunday night, he slept peacefully like a baby. God bless this little guy.
Today I have a few adorable images from the web to share. The first two remind me of Pogo, and the last one is just the cutest kitty.
Now it's time to get dressed. I need to put the mail out before the mail lady gets here. Gotta get those bills paid! Actually, I'm very thankful that I'm here and able to pay those bills!!!
On this happy note, I shall take my leave. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a magnificent day.
Hugs, Edna B.
