My husband’s and my marital relationship has gone upward recently although we are still separated (not legally, just living apart). Our relationship is going strong. We get together most weekends. Last weekend, he came over starting Friday night after we had counseling that day and saw David, then on Saturday we went all the way out to Carmel Valley and went to Carmel Valley Fiesta and had a good time. We saw my mom after that and brought her pizza from the little store next to her house at Rosie’s Crackerbarrel. After that, we had a Thai Village dinner, and it was really, really good. We had a little trouble getting back to my place because the buses has stopped at 7:15 and we were kind of stuck in the valley. We were looking for a cab when a kind stranger offered us a ride to Monterey bus transit plaza where we caught a bus to Salinas, then a taxi to my home here. The next day, on Sunday, we had brunch at First Awakenings followed by iced coffee then watching Rise of Planet of the Apes. After that, Chris went home and I went to my own home.
Yesterday, my mom came to the visit with David but was a half hour or so late. She had extreme difficulty walking around and the people at the building were concerned. They thought she should get a wheelchair. It’s not sure she will. She might just get another walker. I was very concerned about her because she had so much trouble just getting from place to place. It was really concerning.
Besides all this, I need to get my life on track with managing my finances and keeping track of my spending as well as my eating. I’ve been eating out way too much, and it has to stop. I need to eat at home the majority of the time. It’s not good for my body or my budget to eat out at every meal. It also sends me psychologically into a weird place, I think. It’s hard to explain. It probably just makes me feel disorganized, which leads to different types of problems, hard to explain.
I’m going to be getting back on track also with diet and exercise. Today I’m going to the gym and Omni Center, then I was going to meet Chris at the bus stop and he was going to help me with my vacuum cleaner, plus I guess we will visit for a spell.
Getting back on track is not the hard part. It’s staying that way that is the challenge. 🙂
