It’s the third week of the month! Time for a #PhotoPrompt
Jude, from Tales Told Different, selected the photo for this month’s photo challenge. I chose to write a Nonet, a poem of nine lines, starting with a line of nine syllables descending in nine lines to one syllable.
She said.”Because if you’re like me and stuck at home already, or if you’re going to be like me soon, the days of the week are going to be hell to keep track of. We have a wonderful community here on WordPress, and I’m sure many people are feeling nervous and/or isolated. I want to make sure every one of us has somewhere to congregate and someone to talk to.
Why am I writing this post ? Because it’s day ? since we have been told by Bossa to stay home and socially distance ourselves. We are all in different circumstances and yet we are all in the same boat.
Love we all need love and patience. Love is easy we love our families and friends and as things are we are dealing with them all at a distance, well I am. We all know distance makes the heart grow stronger! It’s patience that is the difficult one. Hubby and I are doing well but just occasionally it’s hard.
So I have to admit a little depression has set in but I am fighting it! We have the added pressure of two of our lads being at risk. One is near enough to drive over with shopping and medicine, he is on furlough and at prey to the worries and pressures that brings. The oldest lad lives on the coast and is over an hour and a half drive away which in these strange days is too far to drive. He is working from home and has friends to help occasionally, plus she uses Amazon. Our youngest, with wife and children lives over 45 minutes drive away, he also works from home, just started a new job. He has enough on his plate as well as helping his neighbours. So we potter along, keeping busy in the house ringing friends and neighbours to make sure they are coping and checking on family too, walking Ruby, and shopping every ten days or so. Some days it’s really hard to stay positive.
Then since Easter Monday Mother in law has been in hospital after two seizures, one massive. The news about her swings from good to bad and I have documented her progress so far in these #WDIIA. posts. She has A delirium, which is like dementia but as she fully compus mentis before the siezures now she is totally different. It has been a roller coaster again this week with very conflicting news depending on who we speak too. Apparently she has the nursing staff entertained , they think she is hysterical and very sweet, eats casts amounts and likes to sing to them. That’s not at all the mother in law I know.
Well today hubby rang to speak to the Dr and got an awful shock. She had a temperature and cough yesterday, no one told us this yesterday. Back to today, her temperature is down a little, her cough is not as bad, she has been moved in to a single room, put on anti biotics and tested for Covid19. This is really scary, we are all praying that she does not have Covid19. She will be 100 years old on the 1st of May if you can, please pray she is negative and makes her birthday.
Okay in no particular order because I can remember since Monday, walked Ruby, hubby went shopping, cleaned all windows inside and out, delivered shopping to middle son, got so stressed out with stressed hubby I cancelled a zoom call with the boys and grandchildren, hubby and I had a blazing row… I felt sick with worry.
Cooked a banana cake, had a Pilates zoom lesson, checked on neighbours. Got up a stupid o’clock every day.
So I have to apologize for hardly posting or commenting this week it’s just been so hectic here. I am so so sorry.
Good points, we are still standing, still talking and still hoping.
