Being Prepared

I admit that on Saturday I just wasn’t feeling like myself. I felt oddly paralyzed and the only thing I accomplished was washing down our bathroom and setting up our coffee maker to brew fresh coffee for us on Sunday. Aside from that, I was mostly useless.

I believe I am one of those people who is great during the crisis and then falls apart afterward. At least, that is how it felt today.

I am in the final countdown for my Disney trip. This has helped me turn things around over the course of the day. From now until I depart, I have something happening as I get ready to begin my adventure.

Monday, Anneliese gets out her stitches. Hopefully, her infection has healed. It looks much better to me.

Tuesday I go and get my hair done. I also need to go and get the canned dog food for Lili. Anneliese and Arnie are all set.

Wednesday is my finish the laundry, change the sheets, and finish the last bits of packing day. Then put my bags in the car.

Thursday I blast off to Mandy’s for the night for an early departure out of Boston on Friday morning!

Poor Jack and the dogs will be left behind to hold down the fort while I am off on my own. I’ve got all sorts of meals frozen for Jack and kibbles measured out for the dogs, so I think everything will go off here at home without a problem.

  1. I’m the same way, good in the crisis, fall apart afterwards. Don’t feel bad over needing to recover from it. You’re going to have a great trip next week, enjoy it.

  2. I do the same when faced with an emergency, I always react and take care of business – than I allow myself to fall apart for a bit. Hopefully your get-away will allow you to put that harrowing experience behind you!

  3. I bet a VERY LARGE precentage of us hang and handle most crisis and later on we feel the effect from it. Part of healing. Being a personal care giver I helped people who suffer from PTSD and it sometime comes year later.
    I find out having a simple blog can help to move forward.
    Coffee is on

  4. I am like you, I handle all incidents, accidents problems cold blooded, but then I also fall apart afterwards ! Don’t say poor Jack, maybe he is happy to be a temporary widow, I suspect Ric is ! lol !
