Sitting here I see it’s snowing, April 17 and it’s snowing. It doesn’t last long and the next thing you know the sun is out, but look out back and the clouds are black as night. The instant change , the difference so close but yet just a turn and it’s different again.
This is me, on one side I am bright and sunny, eager to live, wanting to get out and be in life, be healthy and active, but I don’t , I sit and watch, not sunny but not raining or snowing, just being. I want to start living life instead of just surviving.
I can do that easily enough when my husband is home but he works long hours and then has to sleep, so it’s not always possible for him to be with me. I have few friends and they are like I have been, stay home and watch life passing by. I don’t want to do that anymore, I need to be active and healthy, I want too, but how ?
Join a club, volunteer some place, meet new people, easier said than done.
So I sit, as it’s sunny and bright out one door but gloomy and cloudy out another, yet still, raining on one side.

My grandson has been having so many seizures that people are starting to notice. He is still relevantly knew to his illness and knows of know others with autism.
We his family are asking if you know someone with epilepsy or even have epilepsy we want him to know he is not alone. A note, a card, anything to let him know he is not alone!
He is only 9 years old and has had to stop playing all the sports he loves because of it, he is depressed and could use some support other than just us. Please and thank you so much
I am a procrastinator or am I just lazy? I never leave my house, maybe once or twice a month. I am chaos. I am the opposite of who I used to be. They say you can never go back, is it true here as well? I am unorganized and I don’t finish things.
I have multiple projects started but hardly finish any? Maybe I am not a maker but a collector? I clean the same, start one thing, notice something else and by the end of the day, nothing looks done or finished. I have a plan, a schedule for cleaning and organizing but don’t feel I can use it until my house is finished. I still have boxes packet and my bed is still on the floor. The plan is to tear off the second floor and rebuild it. My living room and dining room will be the same but will get very dirty. This plan has been a plan for 3 years but with COVID and the price of wood, it’s still a plan.
I think the problem is I can’t hold myself accountable for not completing the days list.
Why don’t I leave my house, I am not scared or have anxiety, it’s far from a dangerous area, once I’m out I am perfectly fine? My husband goes to the store or it is Amazon and scheduled pick ups for me.
I don’t like my weight but don’t really try hard to fix it. I look nothing like I used to, besides age.
But I have an amazing life! My husband is the best ever, I don’t worry about money like I used to. Technically I don’t have to do anything but could do anything. Kids have grown to taking care of them selves and I feel my life wasting away. I have had this all for 4 years and have done nothing.
