As I walked down the busy sidewalk, knowing I was late for an important meeting, my eye fell upon one of those unfortunate, homeless vagabonds that are found in every city these days....

Wearing what can only be described as rags, carrying every worldly possession in two plastic bags, this person's condition touched my heart.

Some people turned to stare. Others quickly looked away as if the sight would somehow contaminate them. Recalling some long-ago Parochial School admonition to "care for the sick, feed the hungry, and clothe the naked", I was moved by some powerful inner urge to reach out to this unfortunate person.

Yes, where some people saw only rags, I saw a hidden beauty. A small voice inside my head called out, "Reach out! Reach Out!"

And so I did. I will not be in church this week.

Monday: it's going to be a good day.... Kids to school, might take Izzy for a little walk.... not much else planned right now. I am really looking forward to walking the kids to school today actually, it will be my first wee walk since last week's incident... wonder how I will go? If it's not that good I'm going to the Doctor for something to help boost me along ...... I'm sick of feeling so weak and foggy in the head!
HI! The walk to school was Ok, felt tired and breathless and a bit sore 'down there', but ok. I talked to my Doctor, and he reckons I should be ok, but probably should have a blood test to check my levels and if they are low to take some iron supplements and Vitamin B injections....LIKE HELL am I having any friggin injections!

I told him if I'm not feeling better in a few more days I MIGHT consider it!

So, I have done nothing all morning, I am so boring I'm boring myself!

Stop reading me.... I'm fucken boring.

I'm sitting here feeling sorry for myself... and meanwhile a good friend, Helena, is on the operating table having the same operation I had 2 years ago! A full body lift with butt inplants .... I am fine compared to how she is going to be feeling later on today when she comes to! I feel happy that she is getting her body 'sorted' after losing an amazing 70 kilos.... but I don't envy her the next few weeks! *SHUDDER*...

Stew has been home for lunch... nothing happening with him... another quiet couple of hours ahead of me, then I will walk to school to get the kids. I so want to DO SOMETHING... I'm not used to doing nothing, it's so hard!!!

The HIGHLIGHT OF MY DAY: Griffin got an award in his class today, and they gave him a sticker on his hand... when we were walking home from school he stopped and put it on my hand... and when I asked him why he said "Cos I love you Mummy".... awwwwww....

I wonder how long I can keep it on?
SARA mate: ever had an iron injection?? They hurt like 50,000 bastards!!! And I am needle phobic... so I am a wuss, through and through. So if I have to have iron added to me.. it will be via a pill mate!

End of the day, all is good.... NSV today: I did exactly as I was told and did virtually nothing, and I ate 'normal' food but not too much... this is good! Am feeling happier now. nite nite

    have a great day!

  2. So what happened? He moved in behind your home and is tending the garden?

    Sounds like fun. I used to see vagabonds all night long at my previous job. Reached out and gave them beer money. Sometimes I would give them small bags of old clothes.

  3. Dont be so bloody impatient woman!!!
    You were told you would have to take it easy.. and that was before the second trip back to hospital!!!
    Give yourself time to build up your strength...

  4. Too funny!!

    Just take it easy and don't push yourself, you've had a bit of an ordeal.

    Take care

  5. Ok, thats funny. *I'd* reach out to that one....:D

    Don't be a wuss about the Iron injection, it will make a huge difference to your energy if your blood levels are low. It's so much faster than taking iron pills.
