ten things tuesday

Ten random things:

1) An observation about Millennials: time is fluid. Meeting times are not set in stone. Deadlines are guidelines, again, not set in stone. Mind you, this isn't a criticism it's an observation.

2) Helping people who aren't used to being helped can be challenging. Sometimes they don't know what type of help they need. Or even how to relinquish control. I'm currently experiencing this from the role of helper, but it's dawned on me that I am probably difficult to help.

3) There are dogs in cars barking at each other in front of the post office. One has a shrill bark.

4) I'm starting to wonder what the beginning of the school year will look like--or even when it will be. Will it be in person? Will it be distance learning? Will it be a combination? Will it be daily?

5) One of my school besties is transferring schools and I'm going to miss her terribly. We aren't going to get to have a celebration for her.

6) I have a strong case of the munchies. I want to stuff my face. It's a good thing I don't have much junk food. It's better for me to stuff my face with apples and oranges.

7) I bought myself a bouquet of flowers including hyacinths and the scent is so strong. Nice, but strong--it's filling my whole apartment.

8) My Virginia sister and I have had similar experiences lately--we've thought of someone kind of random from the past and then they pop up as suggested Facebook friends. Different people, but the same experiences! How freaky!!!!

9) My ankles are puffy today. Even though I used my pump and am wearing my compression garment.

When my uncle began his precipitous decline due to Parkinson's disease, we learned something valuable as a family: Family do not always make the best caregivers. Loving someone is not enough to qualify you as a caregiver, not by the longest shot. It's a learned profession. It was a tough lesson, but we finally got it.
