Seems I've disappeared lately. Not just from blogging, but from life.
Dad and I have gotten pretty well settled into his new place. There was so much to do at first. Heck we didn't even have dish towels or pots and pans and it seemed as if every day there was something we needed to complete the house.
There have also been doctor appointments, the Heart Specialist, the Endocrinologist, his eye doctor and a few others as well as a couple of my own appointments. Since all of his doc's are here in Indiana, it means a hectic few months of visits to get them all in before it is time to go back to Arizona.
But then.....about two weeks ago, everything came to a screeching halt. No appointments, nothing that was needed for the house and most of all, the newness of us coming home has worn off and we've had no visitors. The first thing I noticed with myself was a slightly trapped feeling and a dash of boredom. I'd been concerned from the get-go about not spending the summer at MY house in the country and though at first, all was well...not so lately.
I miss it. I miss the beauty of the countryside, the crops growing, the barn kitties, my flowers, the yard that forever needs mowed along with a never-ending serious game of pick-up sticks.
In this new place, there is not much to do. The house is fairly new and sits on a teeny-tiny patch of land. And there are neighbors always out and about. I miss privacy. There really is no where to 'hide' from anyone here. In Arizona, although also in a neighborhood, I can always 'hide' on the back porch and not be seen by anyone. So, consequently, the trapped feeling, I think. Well that and always being glued to dad 24/7! Not to mention feeling lonely and blue as Mr. Fix-it has been spending as much time as possible at our home in the country trying to keep up on it.
This past week has been the worst. I find myself sleeping during the day and eating and gaining weight with a touch of self-pity thrown in for good measure.
I'm not hooking, not sewing dog collars, just not doing anything and absolutely can't seem to motivate myself back on the right track.
Does anyone out there have some extra motivation they could lend me for a bit???? At least until mine decides to come back!
