Just another Monday

Come Monday

Not a manic Monday, not a hated start of the work week Monday…just Monday.  I guess I never thought about how we give certain days special significance when we’re working. It seems like just about everyone hates Mondays. I suppose because most people don’t work on the weekends, Monday means a return to the dreaded work week. Now I’ve pretty much always had jobs where I’m required to work at least some weekends, so there have been times when I really liked Mondays because that would often be the start of my “weekend”.

But still being off of work on medical leave kind of changes how I look at things like that. I woke up today thinking that I could be going in to work today on truck day…a hectic, active, yet kind of fun day…it’s all what you make it! If only I could actually be going in to work…but…nope! Still off, still struggling to breathe, wondering what’s going on and what’s going to happen. I have to admit, it’s more than a little scary. I’ve always worked, since I was 14 years old. So not being able to work has me questioning myself. I mean, how am I going to cope if I don’t get better? What in the world would I do?  I have some money saved up, but not enough to get by on for the rest of my life.

No…stop…I’m not going to go looking for trouble where it might not exist. I see a pulmonary specialist Thursday afternoon and we’ll go from there. It’s not like worrying about it between now and Thursday will do anything to make it better anyhow. In the meantime, I’m off for this week and next week, and then we’ll see. Hopefully they’ll be able to figure out what’s going on and then correct it.

I think I’ll go rummage around in my yarn stash and sit back and crochet a scarf…take my mind off my worries for a while.

  1. I should be able to get that scarf made this week, unless Scout and Spook offer too much help with the yarn. 🙂

    • Oh yeah, they like the yarn!! Little monsters…Maybe I’ll make toys for them…of course, there’s no real need to, just give them an empty toilet paper tube and they’re happy.

  2. Been praying for you and so are my Bible Study ladies. Pray that God will give wisdom to the doctor Thursday.

  3. I’m sorry to hear that you still aren’t feeling well. I hope this doctor can figure out what’s going on and help you get better soon. Yes, not working for a time after you’ve been used to the routine of work feels strange. You’ve got a great attitude and you’ve got your little buddies and your yarn projects, as well as writing if you feel up to it, to help. I’m praying that you’ll be well soon.

    • Thanks so much. There’s so much I’d like to be able to do, if only I felt well enough to do it…of course, then I’d be working….lol

      • I know what you mean. You have time off, but how you feel and your energy level put you on the couch or in bed. the important thing is to listen to your body. We want you well so you can do the things you want to do!
